Michael Graham thinks Donald Trump was stupid to fire James Comey

It was stupid of Donald Trump to fire James Comey now because it looks suspicious, according to a US political commentator.

The President has fired the director of the FBI over the way he handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails, but the FBI is also currently investigating links between Trump's campaign and Russia.

Michael Graham, broadcaster and creative director at MediaDC, told Sam Delaney that if Trump had sacked Comey in his first few days of office, a fuss wouldn't have been made. But now due to the investigation into his campaign, it seems like odd timing.

However, he claims allegations about Trump working with Russia in a well thought-out plot probably aren't true because Trump is too stupid to do it, and he believes that is why no evidence has been found yet.
