The Nixon Library Wants You To Know Nixon Never Fired FBI Director And This is Not Nixonian

The Nixon Library does not want the former president mixed up with Trump’s ‘Tuesday night massacre.’

The Nixon Library is not happy with the Trump-Nixon comparisons.

After Tuesday’s bombshell firing of FBI Director James Comey, many were quick to note former President Richard Nixon did the same thing.

Except he didn’t.

Now, this firing was reminiscent of the infamous “Saturday Night Massacre” AKA the night Nixon axed independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox and both the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General resigned.

Of course, Nixon did some really shady things, but firing the FBI Director was not one of them.

The Nixon Library set the record straight.

Sorry, Nixon –– but you can understand why people would jump to conclusions.
