President Trump fired FBI Director James B. Comey on Tuesday, saying the country’s top law enforcement agency had lost the public’s trust, but sparked a new round of questions over why he ousted the man leading an investigation into his campaign operatives’ ties to Russia.
Democrats called the firing outrageous, made Watergate comparisons, said it tainted the presidency and insisted the only way forward would be to turn over the bureau’s Russia probe to an independent prosecutor to free it of Mr. Trump’s influence.
Even many Republicans said they were troubled by the firing and praised Mr. Comey for ably handling a tough job. They said his ouster now will only feed perceptions that Mr. Trump is trying to scuttle the investigation.
