According to a new New York Times report, Vice President Mike Pence played a major role in getting President Donald Trump to fire FBI Director James Comey.

It is reported that the vice president was among “the small group of advisers who planned Mr. Comey’s ouster in near secrecy”.

Pence’s initial plan to have the White House stand by the story that Comey got fired because of a recommendation from Attorney General Jeff Sessions “vaporized” Thursday when the president told Lester Holt that he was “going to fire regardless of the recommendation.”

Among the allegation that the vice president helped Trump come up with a reason to fire Comey, the article also claims that “a half-dozen West Wing officials” said that the president is “considering the most far-reaching shake-up of his already tumultuous team.” Although the article doesn’t say how “far-reaching” these changes will be, most seem to think that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is next on the chopping block.
