Democrats and their media allies are trying to make a federal case out of the firing of James Comey from the FBI. Minutes after the news broke they started claiming it was part of a cover-up which is ridiculous.
Kellyanne Conway went on CNN and set the record straight with Anderson Cooper.

‘It’s not a cover up’: Kellyanne Conway battles CNN’s Anderson Cooper over Comey firing
“That makes no sense—” Cooper said.
“It does make sense, Anderson, I get that’s a new talking point—” Conway said.
“He said one thing as a candidate and now he’s concerned as president?” Cooper interjected.
“It makes complete sense because he has lost confidence in the FBI director and he took the recommendation of Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general to whom the FBI director reports,” Conway said. She added that Rosenstein was confirmed to his position two weeks ago by a vote of 94-6 and that he served as a US attorney under former president Obama. Rosenstein’s recommendation to fire Comey was based on his desire to restore “public confidence in the FBI,” Conway said…
“Senator Schumer just said this raises real concerns … [He essentially said] this is a cover-up today,” Cooper said.
“Well, he’s wrong. It’s not a cover-up,” Conway said. “In fact, the president makes very clear in his letter the fact that Mr. Comey, on at least three occasions, assured the president that he is not under investigation.”
When Cooper asked when Comey made those assurances, Conway replied, “That’s between the President of the United States and Director Comey.”
