Even Bannon Thought It Was Bad Timing to Fire Comey

Even Bannon thought this was a bad idea but Trump still decided to do his best Leeeeroy Jenkins impersonation:

The chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon, who has been sharply critical of the F.B.I., questioned whether the time was right to dismiss Mr. Comey, arguing that doing it later would lessen the backlash, and urged him to delay, according to two people familiar with his thinking. Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff, at one point mulled similar concerns, but was supportive of the move to the president.
