O’Reilly: Reason Comey Was Fired Is ‘Trump Does Not Trust Him’; ‘I Know This To Be a Fact’
O'REILLY: "Let's begin with the fact, and this is a fact that in American journalism right now very few are seeking the truth, not what the press is doing. They don't seek the facts to backup what really happened. What they do do, particularly in the newspapers and on cable television is come up with a scenario and then try to reinforce that scenario. All right. So James Comey has fired by President Trump. The reason he was fired, and I know this is to be fact, it is because does not trust him. Just as simple as that. Donald Trump does not trust James Comey. Why? OK. Three reasons. Number one, he doesn’t like he fact that Comey is unpredictable. You don’t know what he’s going to do. Now, that might be a compliment to Comey. All right. He’s unpredictable. Number two, that Comey would not aggressively investigate the leaks that have plagued the Trump administration since he was inaugurated. He has not, well he's gone now but he was not investigating those leaks. Number three, Russia. President Trump is crazed about it, emotionally involved with it. OK? He believes that from the beginning, his enemies in the press and in the Democratic Party have used the Russia thing to delegitimize his victory. So he’s very emotionally and tightly wound about Russia, all right? He did not trust Comey to do an honest investigation."
