What happened to your spelling last night? This isn't how you write. 

Trump,thought everyone would be happy he fired Comey for essentially that reason. His timing and rationale changed things. 

The outrage over the Comey firing has no more to do with respect for Comey than Black cheering at the first OJ verdict had to with respect for OJ.

For what it is worth James Comey stood up against President George W Bush and his evil minions:  As Acting Attorney General during the March 2004 hospitalization of John Ashcroft, refused to certify the legality of central aspects of the NSA program. The certification was required under White House procedures in order for the program to continue. After Comey's refusal,  Andrew H. Card Jr., White House Chief of Staff, and Alberto R. Gonzales, then White House counsel and future Attorney General, made a visit to the George Washington University Hospital, to attempt to win approval directly from Ashcroft for the program. According to the 2007 memoir of Jack Goldsmith, who had been head of the Office of Legal Counsel at the time, Comey went to the hospital to give Ashcroft support in withstanding pressure from the White House.

FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III, like Comey, also supported Ashcroft's decision; both men were prepared to resign if the White House ignored the Department of Justice's legal conclusions on the wiretapping issue. FBI director Mueller's notes on the March 10, 2004, incident, which were released to a House Judiciary committee, confirms that he "Saw [the] AG, John Ashcroft in the room. AG is feeble, barely articulate, clearly stressed." Comey withdrew his threat to resign after meeting directly with President Bush, who gave his support to making changes in the surveillance program.

On the other hand, in 2005 Comey endorsed a memorandum approving the use of 13 enhanced interrogation techniques, including waterboarding and sleep deprivation for up to 180 hours, for use by the CIA when interrogating suspects. Comey objected to a second memorandum, drafted by Daniel Levin and signed by Steven G. Bradbury, that these techniques could be used in combination. Comey was one of the few members of the Bush administration who had tried to prevent or limit the use of torture.

Both....

As a self preservationist, he vacillates and alternates.

His retention and appointment was one of Obama's biggest blunders.

I'm actually glad to see this out here: what the hell is Comey's deal? He knew Drumpf was a Komrade Konfederate, yet he still intentionally threw the election. Why? He hated Clinton so much he thought world chaos was preferable? Why? We truly need to find out if we want to talk about truth and not propaganda, and find out just how much the old fossil fuel cabal is squelching everyone's progress on purpose- so funny back in the day I used to think that was just a conspiracy theory! Live and learn ...
