She won national attention for her role on the House Judiciary Committee during Watergate and was subsequently elected district attorney of Kings County (Brooklyn). She is a Harvard Law School graduate and author of "The Impeachment of George W. Bush: A Practical Guide for Concerned Citizens." The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of the author.

FBI Director James Comey was terminated most likely because of his continued investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton.
