BBC - Did President Trump fire James Comey as part of a cover-up?

Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey caught Washington by complete surprise. No one - in Congress, in conservative circles, even in the FBI itself - seemingly had an inkling of what was in store.
As politicians and pundits survey the fallout, here are a few of the big questions they are likely to contemplate.
Was it a cover-up?
The abruptness and timing of Mr Comey's dismissal, to put it mildly, is highly suspicious.
Just over a week ago, the FBI director talked about his agency's investigation into Russian meddling in the US presidential election - and possible Russian ties to the Trump campaign - before a Senate committee.
He was scheduled to appear before Congress again to discuss "worldwide threats" on Thursday.

The BBC earned its reputation as a beacon of truth in WW2, broadcasting reliable news to counter nazi propaganda.

3. Of course Corney's firing is part of a cover-up by the Bannon - Trump - Sessions syndicate.

Can we at least pretend to avoid being naive about this?

7. More of a decapitation

Don't just cover up the FBI's investigation. Proceed to kill it in its tracks.
