CBC reports that FBI Director James Comey was abruptly terminated yesterday by United States President Donald Trump.

Comey, recognized as the nation’s top law enforcement official, was in the midst of an FBI investigation into the potential impact of Russian election meddling relating to Trump’s presidential campaign.

Additionally, Comey had come under scrutiny in recent months for his role in an investigation into the E-mail practices of Trump’s election opponent Hilary Clinton, which Clinton has partially blamed for her failed presidential bid.

Comey was nominated to a 10-year term as FBI Director by former U.S. President Barack Obama in 2013. He is the second agency head in FBI history to be terminated from the post.
