Spicer on Comey: ‘Pretty Clear the President Has the Authority to Fire Anyone Within the Federal Government’

‘I don’t think there’s any question about his ability to fire Jim Comey or anyone else in the federal government’

EXCERPT:

SPICER: "I think as far as the firing of James Comey, it’s been pretty clear the President has the authority to fire anyone within the federal government that he sees fit isn’t doing the duty that is appropriate for that job. So, I don’t think there’s any question about his ability to fire Jim Comey or anyone else in the federal government."
