Comey Firing 'Worse Than Watergate,' Says Former White House Ethics Lawyer

Richard Painter tells Rolling Stone the surprise move is a clear-cut abuse of power. "We cannot tolerate this – for the president to be firing people who are investigating him and his campaign and its collusion with the Russians," Painter says. "It's a lot worse than Watergate. Watergate was a third-rate burglary. It was purely domestic in nature. This situation involves Russian espionage, and we've got to find out who is collaborating"."
