President Trump has fired the boss of the FBI, James Comey. It is the second time an FBI boss has been fired. At first, Mr Comey thought the news of his firing was a joke. He was talking to FBI agents in Los Angeles when he saw a TV news program reporting on the news. FBI staff confirmed that he had been fired. The White House delivered a letter to Mr Comey about his firing, but Comey was not in his office to receive it.

The sacking is now a big story in the USA. Many newspapers are saying Comey was fired because he was investigating President Trump's links to Russia. They say the White House is covering up a scandal. The White House denied this. It said Comey was sacked because of his inability to investigate Hillary Clinton's e-mails. They said he was unable to lead the FBI. President Trump said it was time for a "new beginning" at the FBI.
