FLASHBACK: The New York Times Approved of Bill Clinton Firing FBI Director in 1993

Awaiting Clinton's "But that time it was different" comment.
William Sessions -- no relation to current Attorney General Jeff Sessions -- served as director of the FBI from Nov. 2, 1987, until July 19, 1993, when he was fired by then President Bill Clinton.

Cristina Laila  "The Democrats lost their minds after President Trump fired FBI Director, James Comey. Certainly this is a partisan knee-jerk reaction because The New York Times and prominent Democrats had no problem when then-President Bill Clinton fired FBI Director, William Sessions in 1993. 

"In fact, The New York Times opened their article by saying, ‘Defiant FBI Chief Removed From Job By The President’. Slick Willie also fired 93 U.S. Attorneys in one day in 1993, but that’s okay because he’s a Democrat and Democrats can do whatever they want without fear of reprisal.

. . . "So it’s okay for Bill Clinton to fire his FBI Director at the advice of his Attorney General, but when Trump does the exact same thing, it’s a Constitutional crisis. The investigation into the Trump-Russia hoax can continue whether Comey is the FBI Director or not. If it weren’t for double standards, the Democrats would have no standards at all." . . .

. . . "He called for members of Congress to oppose confirmation of a new FBI director without first appointing a special prosecutor.
“ 'We must continue this effort that the facts come out, I am not afraid of the facts, I can handle the truth, the American people need to have the truth of what happened!” he shouted." . . .
