Reports: Comey Found Out He Was Fired From TV Coverage


Former FBI Director James Comey found out on Tuesday that President Donald Trump fired him when Comey saw the news on TV, according to several reports.

According to a New York Times report, Comey was giving a speech to a group of FBI employees in Los Angeles when news broke of his termination, and he found out that he had been fired when the news was displayed on TV screens in the background.

CNN also reported, citing unnamed law enforcement sources, that Comey learned of his termination from TV coverage.
