CNN Report: “Sources: James Comey sought more resources for Russia investigation”

This misleading CNN post was citing a NY Times article with the headline: “Days Before Firing, Comey Asked for More Resources for Russia Inquiry.”

This NY Times article goes on to admit, however, that “It is not yet known what became of Mr. Comey’s request, or what role — if any — it played in his firing.”

Could this CNN piece be an insinuation that although there may be other reasons to oust Comey, the move was made because President Trump wanted to avoid/undermine the Trump/Russia investigation? Sarah Flores, DOJ spokeswoman said: “the idea that he asked for more funding” for the Russia inquiry was “totally false.” Furthermore, Ian Prior, a spokesman for the Department of Justice at the time, described the reports that Comey had sought additional resources as “totally false,” according to The Washington Examiner.
