Benjamin Wittes on why he thinks President Trump fired James Comey

President Donald Trump “fired Jim Comey because the most dangerous thing in the world, if you’re Donald Trump, is a person who tells the truth,” said Benjamin Wittes, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute, editor-in-chief of the Lawfare blog and a friend of Mr. Comey.

Wittes spoke with PBS NewsHour about what the former FBI director has told him about his relationship with the president.
