Political science expert weighs in on Comey firing, Trump investigation
SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Joining us on BA via Skype is Professor Jay Gonzalez, a political science expert from Golden Gate University.
With the firing of FBI director James Comey, political pundits say President Donald Trump has thrusted the US presidency into a dangerous area. Trump has become the first president since Richard Nixon to fire the official overseeing an investigation involving the commander in chief.
Professor Gonzalez weighs in on the sudden move, how this can affect a counterintelligence investigation into Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, and whether the issue will cause dissent — and major delays in Trump’s overall agenda — from both political parties in Congress.
