Who should replace Comey?

My candidate would be someone within the agency who is not Andy McCabe. The Hillary pardon -- and that is what the non-indictment was -- evidently tore the agency in part.

Some agents resent giving her a pass. Some agents resent the October Surprise in which Comey, either by choice or stupidity, wrote a letter to Congress that re-opened the case.

Some agents also liked Comey. He was a good boss who made a helluva mistake last July.

Need I remind readers that all speculation about Christie, etc., is in a media that told us Guiliani was a lock for secretary of state, and Christie would be the attorney general.

Another possibility is someone from his list of 21 Supreme Court nominees. I would be fine with any of them.

Trump knows he needs to heal the FBI. Someone flashy will not do that. Many FBI agents are lawyers who would respect a judge. Perhaps that ultimately is the answer.

On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  1. "The FBI has five entry programs that you must qualify for before it will consider you for appointment as a special agent: Accounting, Computer Science or IT, Diversified, Language and Law. While you don't have to be a practicing attorney to be qualified for the Law entry program, you do have to have a law degree. You do not, however, need to have a law degree to qualify for the FBI's other four entry programs."

    That should open up the Directorship to someone other than a lawyer. Heaven knows we have enough of them already. I don't have any particular person in mind yet, but a strong leader is definitely required along with a good grounding in basic common sense. - Elric

  2. I trust Trump will find someone, as Elric says, with a solid grounding in common sense (rather less common these days).

    Arnold Schwarzenegger?
    Joe Arpaio?
    J Christian Adams?
    Someone from the Tea Party?

  4. And why wasn't Hillary indicted - because Trump said is was time to leave her alone. Sound advice you should take Don. Hillary lost - move on.

    1. Now that even more condemning evidence has come out into the open about Hillary's crimes, it is appropriate to re-consider her indictment and prosecution. The decision should left entirely to the Attorney General and the DoJ. Trump won the election, which should bring the political battle between him and Clinton to a close (obviously it hasn't). But Trumps political victory should have no weight when it comes to the principle that the nation's laws should be fairly applied to all.

  5. Sounds like you might be describing Robert Gates.

  6. My wife just did her happy dance for Fischer.
    To quote: "That would put a stake in their liberal hearts"

    We've been with each other too long I suppose. She still cries at ABC and CW sitcoms, though.
