The Nixon Presidential Library Has Some Words About James Comey's Firing

By Zachary Brenner

History tends to repeat itself. More times than not, people fail to look at the past as a reminder to the mistakes people have made. Especially in Politics. It seems politicians always think "it won't get me this time" but in reality, usually it will come back to haunt you if you do something shady.

By now, you've probably heard that President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday. While the White House claims this was in response to the FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton emails, many suspect that it had to do with the FBI's ongoing investigation into the Trump administration's ties to Russia. 

After word broke of Comey's firing, countless politicians and and media outlets began calling the firing "Nixonian." However, the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, California offered a a quick clarification.   

For the most part, Twitter seemed to enjoy this grade-A trolling.
