Apparently, there are FBI agents who agree with the President’s evaluation of Comey. Kerry Picket reported in the Daily Caller:
Comments made by three FBI special agents that were given to the Daily Caller in reaction to the White House’s dismissal of McCabe Tuesday night included, “good riddance” and that the firing was “overdue.
All of the agents concurred that other agents in their immediate work environments are “talking about” Comey’s firing and most appeared unconcerned about his departure.
“We don’t need a political hack,” an agent within the Joint Terrorism Task Force said.
Another agent said, “It should have been expected because he was not doing a good job. He had it coming to him.”
One agent added, “The FBI investigates and he went beyond that. He went beyond what he was supposed to do.”
Asked by Holt if by firing Comey he was trying to send a “lay off” message to his successor, Trump said, “I’m not.”
“If Russia did anything, I want to know that,” he said.
But Trump also insisted there was no “collusion between me and my campaign and the Russians.”
“Also, the Russians did not affect the vote,” he said.
Trump also described the times Comey told him he was under investigation:
“I actually asked him” if I were under investigation, Trump said, noting that he spoke with Comey once over dinner and twice by phone.
“I said, if it’s possible would you let me know, ‘Am I under investigation?’ He said, ‘You are not under investigation.'”
