White House: If Hillary Had Won, She Would Have Fired Comey Immediately and Democrats Would Have Danced in The Streets

Filling in for White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer at the lectern today, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shot back at Democrats criticizing President Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday evening. 

"If Hillary Clinton had won the election, and thank God she didn't, but if she had she would have fired Comey immediately and the very Democrats criticizing the President today would be dancing in the streets celebrating," Sanders said. 

During the briefing Sanders revealed President Trump had considering replacing Comey since Election Day, but felt it was appropriate to give him a chance. It was not made clear specifically when the President lost confidence in Comey, especially considering last week Spicer said he had full confidence in the Director.
