President Donald Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey.

The White House announced Tuesday that the firing stemmed from Comey’s handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Comey had been heading an investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

According to the New York Times, Trump sent Comey a letter saying:

“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the bureau.

“It is essential that we find new leadership for the F.B.I. that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission.”
