The President of the United States Donald Trump shockingly sacked FBI Director James Comey last night on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
The trigger-happy President has been on a firing spree since taking power, and Comey follows the high profile departures of Sally Yates, Michael Flynn and Craig Deare.
We here at Paddy Power Tower think White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon could be packing his bag soon, installing him as favourite to be the next member of the Trump administration to resign or be fired (13/8, 38.1% chance).

Press Secretary Sean Spicer is next in line for the chop (5/2, 28.6%), ahead of Presidential mouthpiece Kellyanne Conway (6/1, 14.3%).
As for Comey’s replacement, we believe that interim leader Andrew McCabe is most likely to get the permanent role (3/1, 25%), if only to save the Donald from doing much thinking.
Paddy Power customers have been lumping on Trump to come undone, with thousands staked on him not completing his first term in office (4/6, 60%) and to be impeached (10/11, 52.4%).

Asked about the termination spokesperson Paddy Power said: “So Donald Trump sacks the man leading an investigation into him – man, we gave the system a kick.
“I think he’ll put Ivanka in charge of the FBI. Then we can refer to it as daughter-gate.”
