Democrats Get Their Wish: Trump Fires Comey

Democrats were adamant. They wanted FBI Director James Comey out. Period.
Let’s name some names — and with doubtless thanks to Mr. Google more can be found. Bold print supplied for the names below.
Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, September 2016. 
Headline in the Daily Beast: 
Harry Reid: Comey Should Resign
In the wake of a “soul-crushing” report on Russia’s meddling in the presidential election, Sen. Harry Reid has called for FBI Director James Comey to resign for allegedly withholding information on President-elect Donald Trump’s ties to Russia. Reid, who was a fierce opponent of Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, which many believe cost her the election, told MSNBC on Saturday that he believes the FBI knew all along that Russia was helping Trump and deliberately did nothing about it. “This is not fake news. Intelligence officials are hiding connections to the Russian government. There is no question,” Reid said. “Comey knew and deliberately kept this info a secret,” he said. Asked whether he believes Comey should step down over the matter, Reid replied, “Of course, yes.”
Senate Democratic Whip Charles Schumer, November, 2016.
