The president fired FBI director James Comey on Tuesday, dismissing him amid a political furor that has overshadowed a string of high-profile probes into Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election.

The White House initially said the president fired Comey after the director said he was not under investigation.

The Washington Post reported on Monday that Comey had told the Senate Intelligence Committee he had no knowledge of any investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia.

Comey said he could no longer defend his handling of the Clinton email investigation, which the White House has maintained was not a “matter” that was “closed” when he was appointed.

Comey’s abrupt firing came a day after President Donald Trump publicly blasted the FBI’s investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russia.

Trump also lashed out at a bipartisan panel of senators, calling them “the phony media” and accusing them of being “a bunch of hypocrites.”

The president on Tuesday sent a series of tweets accusing the Senate of being politically motivated, with some accusing the panel of being an attempt to block the confirmation of new FBI Director James Comey.

“The Democrats are trying to destroy the FBI and the Department of Justice with a phony collusion-driven investigation into Russia,” Trump wrote.

“They are also trying to stop me from appointing the right person to the job.”

The tweets came a week after Trump fired Comey, citing a probe into his handling the Clinton emails probe as the reason.

“I was going to fire Comey because of the Russia investigation, just so you understand,” Trump said during a White House news conference.

“We were told he was the reason why we weren’t able to find anything.

And he was a very good man.

But, it turns out, there was absolutely no collusion.

It turns out that there was no collusion.”
