‘Excuse My Breath’: CNN’s Jeff Zeleny Is Literally Breathless Reporting on Comey ‘Bombshell’

Today, an absolutely shocking piece of news hit when it was announced that FBI Director James Comey had been fired by President Donald Trump. In a brief letter, the president cited recommendations from the attorney general and deputy general, while adding that Comey is not able to “effectively lead the Bureau.”

As CNN was running a different report on Comey related to the letter the FBI sent today clarifying Comey’s remarks about Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, they had to break in with the stunning news, and reporter Jeff Zeleny was literally breathless.

“Excuse my breath here, Wolf,” Zeleny told anchor Wolf Blitzer. “Just ran out here to bring you this news, so as we get more here, we’ll bring it to you, but at this point a bombshell at the White House. James Comey is out.”
