This week President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. The dramatic timing has redivided partisan sentiment and further complicated the investigation of possible Russian meddling in the last election cycle.

Why did Trump fire him this way? What exactly were his reasons? How might Sens. Collins and King, who both sit on the Senate Intelligence Committee, react? Does America need a new FBI director to investigate or an independent investigator? Do we have time to talk about Gov. LePage deciding not to challenge King for his Senate seat? What is even happening? Our host, Portland Press Herald Editorial Page Editor Greg Kesich, and Sunday columnists Cynthia Dill and Alan Caron dig into as many angles of Comey’s past year as they can … with a just a few rounds of argument.
