President Trump breaks silence on why he fired James Comey

The White House tossed more incendiary rhetoric at axed FBI Director James Comey, accusing him of circumventing the chain of the demand at the Justice Department as it sought to justify President Trump's extraordinary firing.
'I’m not going to get into the specifics of their conversation,' Sanders said, when asked whether Trump asked FBI Director James Comey whether he was under investigation
Comey had 'essentially taken a stick of dynamite and thrown it into the Department of Justice' by holding his infamous press conference about the FBI's decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton, Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday.
Sanders unloaded on Comey just hours after Trump fired him while releasing a letter from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein laying out the case against Comey.
Absent from her rationale was any mention of the Russia investigation that Comey was overseeing as head of the FBI, an inquiry that includes alleged interactions between Trump campaign officials an Russia. 
Sanders – filling in for press secretary Sean Spicer, who is on Naval reserve duty – also accused Comey of committing 'atrocities' in his conduct, a word usually reserved for the worst actors on the world stage.
