While shock dominated much of the FBI and the White House, the mood was more elated at Roger Stone's house in Florida. Several Stone allies and friends said Stone, who has been frequently mentioned in the investigation, encouraged the president to fire Comey in conversations in recent weeks.
On Twitter, Stone signaled praise for the move by posting an image of Trump from The Apprentice saying "You're fired."
Stone declined to comment Tuesday night but said he was enjoying a fine cigar.
Come on now! This shit is completely insane. If this is true then how in hell can things just go on as normal!? A key suspect in a FBI investigation convinced the President of the United States to fire the FBI Director?
Trump is unfit. Compromised. And should be impeached. Now. This is not normal. This can’t continue.
