investigating the potential russian ties. what's the timing of it? what do you make of it? >> what i make of it, i've seen political daattacks, shocking developments. the closest parallel president richard nixon ended up firing a special prosecutor looking into watergate. there are some similarities some differences with that. yet, to have someone get fired who is leading the investigation into you is a stunning development. you know, james comey had his attracters both democrats and republicans but there was a sense, well when they're leading an investigation into the russian interference in the 2016 campaign. and possible ties to the trump campaign itself, people thought, well, he's going to continue to investigate this. so, it sends a shock to everyone. and now we have to pick up the pieces. >> so, the white house said this is based on recommendations from the attorney general in relation to clinton e-mails. the incident, the way that rolled out.
6:48 am
explanation? >> i really don't buy it. on a long list of grievances coming from the 2016 campaign. one actually from democrats championing back in july in 2016 that comey shouldn't have interfered. what he did was improper. there are a lot of democrats and republicans who agree with that assessment. and in trump's james comey assureded me in private that i'm not being investigated. that to me, signals this is more about russia than what happened to hillary clinton. >> thank you, mark. >> our coverage of comey's firing continues in the nbc washington app. there you'll find the time line to see how local lawmakers are reacting. and a programming note as well, nbc's lester holt will sit down with president trump tomorrow. you can watch that interview thursday night on "nightly news". a new name will be added to the police
