“I need loyalty, I expect loyalty,” Trump told then FBI Director James Comey in January – even though FBI directors are supposed to be independent of a president, and Comey was only 4 years into a 10 year term.

Comey testified before the Senate that Trump tried to “create some sort of patronage relationship,” based on personal loyalty.

After Comey refused and continued to investigate possible connections between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives, Trump fired him.

Preet Bharara, who had been the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said Trump tried to create the same sort of patronage relationship with him that he did with Comey.

Bharara’s office had been investigating Trump’s secretary of health and human services, Tom Price, and also looking into Russian money-laundering allegations against Deutsche Bank, Trump’s principal private lender.

When Bharara didn’t play along, Trump fired him.

Bharara said Comey’s testimony “felt a little bit like déjà vu.”

Den sez:
It should be noted that Sessions was the only point of contact for both men

    Lightning an thunder here this morning launched me out of my chair, like a bomb going off. Surprisingly it sprinkled here and hailed up the hill in Grass Valley, then the Sun came out and temps went to 100 here, now tapered of to only 90, ran the AC, too humid, stifling. This stuff is supposed to hang around until Friday when we get a ‘cold-snap’ down to 95.

      Saw last night’s report on the heat and how the A/C would be used tomorrow. This is tomorrow and I see you did turn it on. We cooked down the last two days. Even got 2 minutes of rain today.
