To the Editor:

The  director of the FBI, James Comey, was summarily dismissed from his position by the president of the United States.  The timing was unexpected and many question the motive for the sudden decision.

One thing is certain: the former director is a good American and a dedicated servant who is the victim of the old  dage “No good deed ever goes unpunished”.

After going on national television and explaining the results of the Hillary Clinton investigation in which every charge was verified — and there were many — he decided that there was no  intent to break the law and therefore no criminal charges would be brought against Mrs. Clinton.  

That decision was not his to make, and in my opinion, was done to shield/protect the then-attorney general from having to make a decision that she had already compromised by meeting with the accused’s husband for over half an hour in private.

Loyalty to the administration at the time ultimately became his downfall.

I'm still surprised that Comey and the head of the IRS, Koskinen, were not fired on Jan 20, 2017 at high noon.
