US Futures are Slightly Lower This Morning Following the Surprise Firing of FBI Head James Comey

US futures are slightly lower this morning following the surprise firing of FBI head James Comey.  President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey late yesterday citing the need to find new leadership to restore the public’s trust and confidence in the FBI.  This move is controversial because of the FBI’s current investigation into the President’s ties to Russia.  In economic data, import prices rose 0.5 percent which is more than expected.  Asian markets closed mostly higher with the Hang Seng leading the way higher while the Shanghai index closed lower.  Markets in Europe are trading mostly higher led by the FTSE as markets there weighed the firing of James Comey.
