Days before he was fired, Comey asked for money for Russia investigation
Days before he was fired, James B. Comey, the former FBI director, asked the Justice Department for a significant increase in money and personnel for the bureaus investigation into Russias interference in the presidential election, three officials with knowledge of his request told the New York Times.
Comey asked for the resources during a meeting last week with Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who wrote the Justice Departments memo that was used to justify the firing of the FBI director this week.

DOJ has said this is crap.
More fake news. The Justice department says Comey asked for no additional money.
Fake News Talking Point Echo Chamber.
Russia investigation is a fake news anyway. It was a pure fiction to “explain” why hillary lost and to try to delegitimize Trump.
I thought the DOJ said this was BS.
Comey would have kept this “investigation” going for the entire Trump presidency and the fact of it being ongoing would be cited in Ryan’s Articles of Impeachment when he gets around to that.
If they can’t find any Trump Russia conspiracy/connection, they’ll manufacture it with public money.

HAHA! The smoking gun!
I have not coordinated or reviewed this statement in any way with the Department of Justice or any other part of the government. They do not know what I am about to say."
He didn't keep the AG informed about what he was going to say??!! You gotta be kidding me! You don't do something like this (much less say something like this publicly) in government (or in business, for that matter) without -- rightfully -- getting your arse fired!
And this just in: "Dog Bites Man".
