16. Once FBI was investigating Clinton, he couldn't fire him
If an FBI director wants to avoid getting fired, he just needs to make sure that he always has at least one on-going criminal investigation of the President underway. If Clinton had fired Freeh, it would have looked like Nixon's Saturday Night Massacure when a set of Federal officials all resigned because they refused to fire the Special Prosecutor.

Freeh came across in the NPR interview as an extremely bitter man who had personal hatred of Clinton. Freeh is playing the blame game against the Clinton Administration for 9-11. In reality, his own agency was too busy investigating BJGate to find the terrorist network inside the US.
