After fired FBI Director James Comey compared President Donald Trump to a mafioso, The Late Show‘s Stephen Colbert had one question: why were you surprised at what happened?
“If it felt like you were working for a mob boss, were you surprised that you got whacked?” the host asked the former FBI director, who laughed in response. “Because that’s what they do.”
“I actually was quite surprised because I thought, I’m leading the Russia investigation,” Comey responded. “Even though our relationship was becoming strained, there’s no way I’m gonna get fired or whacked.”
When Colbert pressed him, the former FBI head said “that would be a crazy thing to do.”
“Why would you fire the FBI director who’s leading the Russia investigation?” he asked, to which Colbert responded, “because you’re leading the Russia investigation!”
“I don’t know if you’ve dealt with mob bosses before,” the host added, “but they don’t like to be investigated.”

Trump’s campaign reveals just how very little money they have left
Former Vice President Joe Biden announced that his campaign brought in a massive campaign haul during the Democratic convention last month ahead of the August campaign finance filing. President Donald Trump has attempted to keep his campaign numbers hidden with a late filing, and by Sunday evening it was clear why.
Trump's total haul for August, when he got a week's worth of free media from the Republican convention, was just $61.7 million. The campaign spent almost all of it, $61.2 million.
The campaign still has about $900,000 in debt. His cash on hand is just $121 million in the bank.
