Early candidates emerging to take over as FBI director include the New York police chief who led force after 9/11 and a 'bare-knuckle fighting' sheriff
  • Position is vacant following Trump's sacking of James Comey yesterday
  • New pick will be put forward by President, but requires Senate approval
  • Rudi Giuliani, Chris Christie and David Clarke are among those linked
  • FBI Directors serve single 10 year terms under law introduced in 1976

Since I never had confidence in the Farkin Bureau of Idiots (FBI) I will retain said lack of confidence. But, glad Comey's gone anyway!

So, how long until NSA dictator gets canned?
Killary jailed?
Pizza/pedo gate dealt with?
Wall built?
US out of Syria? Afghanistan? Ukraine? Everybody else's business?

The left hates Comey as much as the right . Hillary has been blaming her loss on him. The problem they have now is just who President Trump might put into this position. The head of the FBI can expose as well as cover. Who will be given access to that much power? Can not wait to see.

The left is between a rock and a hard place. They can't object to Trump firing Comey because they hate him for what's he's done to Killery but they can't let go of the 'muh Russians' dialog either so they find themselves defending Comey at the same time, they can't help being idiots and find themselves running around in circles. Trump is a farking genius!!

Every one hated Comey or loved him - some at the same time. Now the folks that hated him and blamed him for killary losing are the one crying over him being fired. He thought he was untouchable, that he couldn't be fired, his term wasn't up, no FBI director had ever been fired, guess he didn't count on being Trumped.

I would like to see spicer bait the media big,

invite them in for the WH brief, and have vids ready to roll,

when the questions come, point at the vid and just wait for it to end as the libtard is exposed for the pos it is,

once the vid completes, go 'Next!' without answering any questions

do that until they get the picture, and continue to intersperse vids of others who haven't got the balls to stand up and be exposed

How did Comey put Trump in the White House? Was it Comey's refusal to prosecute That Woman? Nobody was sitting on the fence in late October 2016.

They're all going nuts on the timing because that's all they've got. But that argument doesn't stand up under scrutiny either. When would be a good time? January 21 would have probably been the best time but the dems would have used the same argument then. The Russia / Trump connection investigation argument will go on for years and may never go away. So that whole time frame would also be included within their bad timing umbrella. But Comey had to go. The timing- now- was as good as it could get. The news he got of his firing from a news report while addressing his underlings was absolutely delicious.

And we may as well get used to acting director McCabe. The confirmation battle for the permanent FBI director will be epic.

Dems going to fight whoever gets nominated, especially Gowdy or Clarke, they wont vote for anyone that they know will go after Clintons, going to be a tough road to get someone legitimate approved.

I hear ya D,

Seems to me the manner in which it was done was chosen for max effect. Also demonstrating their intense dislike for the guy. Also giving him excactly zero options to walk out the door with contacts, info, etc.

while many are crying about the how, I find it perfectly appropriate

James Comey’s Democrat Critics Now See Russian Conspiracy In Trump’s Firing

AP/Charles Dharapak

by AARON KLEIN10 May 2017

While former aides to President Obama and members of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign predictably panned President Donald Trump for firing James Comey as FBI director, it was only a few months ago that Clinton’s campaign repeatedly alleged wrongdoing by Comey over his investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server.
And last October, Obama’s former attorney general, Eric Holder, signed his name to a letter, signed by Holder as well as nearly 100 former federal prosecutors and high-ranking Department of Justice officials.

The letter stated: “Many of us have worked with Director Comey; all of us respect him. But his unprecedented decision to publicly comment on evidence in what may be an ongoing inquiry just eleven days before a presidential election leaves us both astonished and perplexed.”

ABC News reported on the letter:

The authors of the letter said they were “moved” to speak out publicly because Comey’s action violated “settled” DOJ tenets. Justice Department officials are instructed to refrain from commenting publicly on pending investigations except in “exceptional circumstances,” as well as to “exercise heightened restraint near the time of a primary or general election,” said the letter.

“We cannot recall a prior instance where a senior Justice Department official— Republican or Democrat—has, on the eve of a major election, issued a public statement where the mere disclosure of information may impact the election’s outcome, yet the official acknowledges the information to be examined may not be significant or new,” they wrote.

The nearly 100 former DOJ officials who signed on to the letter wrote that Comey’s letter to Congress was inconsistent with prevailing department policy and that it broke with longstanding practices followed during past elections. “Perhaps most troubling to us is the precedent set by this departure from the Department’s widely-respected, non-partisan traditions,” they wrote.

After Comey renewed the email probe in late October, Clinton herself called the FBI chief’s actions “deeply troubling.”

“It is pretty strange,” she said. “It’s pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information, right before an election. In fact, it’s not just strange it’s unprecedented and it’s deeply troubling.”

Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, said Comey had “not been forthcoming with the facts.”

However, now that Trump has fired Comey, with administration officials citing Comey’s handling of the Clinton email investigation, former Obama aides and Clinton officials claim to be dismayed. Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein clarified the firing in a letter, writing, “I cannot defend the director’s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s emails.”

Yet Sen. Tim Kaine, Clinton’s running mate, claimed the firing was about the Russia investigation. “Trump firing Comey shows how frightened the Admin is over Russia investigation,” Kaine tweeted in response to the news. “Comey firing part of a growing pattern by White House to cover-up the truth.”

Trump firing Comey shows how frightened the Admin is over Russia investigation

Robby Mook, Clinton’s campaign manager, released the following statement:

I was as frustrated, concerned and disappointed as anyone with Director Comey’s handling of the email investigation, but President Trump just fired the man investigating how Russia meddled in our election and whether members of his campaign were involved, an investigation President Trump called a “charade” only 24 hours ago. It’s equally concerning that our attorney general, who lied about his own meetings with the Russians, approved Director Comey’s firing.

Clinton’s press secretary, Brian Fallon, tweeted, “I’m not shedding any tears for Comey personally – he hurt the FBI’s reputation – but I do worry whether we ever get to the bottom of Russia now.”

Former aides to Obama also claimed Trump fired Comey over the Russia investigation.

“This should not be sugarcoated. Firing Comey is up there in terms of the scariest things Trump has done,” former Obama White House Communications Director Jen Psaki wrote on Twitter.

Former Obama National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes expressed concern:

“This is not normal. This is not healthy for a democracy. The fixed 10 year term for an FBI Director exists to prevent … this,” he wrote. “This justification several months into this Administration is just completely and insultingly unbelievable.”

The Simple Explanation for Trump Firing James Comey When He Did


Alex Wong/Getty Images

by JOEL B. POLLAK9 May 20179,128

The case for firing former FBI Director James Comey has been made at length by both Democrats and Republicans.

Last July, Republicans were angry that he failed to indict Hillary Clinton, and Democrats were angry that he made a case for doing so. In October, Democrats were furious that Comey revealed that he had re-opened the investigation into Clinton, and in March, Republicans were angry that he disputed President Donald Trump’s wiretapping claims.

Comey was, arguably, dealt an impossible hand by the Obama administration. Regardless, within the Department of Justice and beyond, Comey had — perhaps with good intentions — undermined his credibility, and that of the FBI.

But why fire Comey now? The answer is simple. The day before, President Barack Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper repeated, under oath, what he told NBC News’ Chuck Todd on Meet the Press on March 5 — that he had seen no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. That gave the Trump administration the breathing room to dismiss Comey — which it simply did not have before.

It is true that Trump did not have an attorney general and assistant attorney general in place until relatively late, but he could have acted before then — though having their recommendation certainly adds weight to his decision.

Put simply, if Trump had fired Comey while there were still serious questions about Russia, then it would have been more plausible to accuse him of trying to interfere in the investigation or cover up whatever happened. It is now clear that nothing, in fact, happened. Monday’s hearing with Clapper and former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates was meant to reveal a “smoking gun,” and produced nothing but viral videos of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

The more Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and his media allies try to hype the Comey firing as the new Watergate, and revive the Russia conspiracy theory, the more they help Trump by making fools of themselves.

It is interesting that the FBI director was never an FBI agent.
Neither was J. Edgar Hoover. Hoover was never an agent even in the older Bureau of Investigation. He was always a bureaucrat.

Who also, reportedly, used the Bureau to build files of information on literally everyone in government and who knows who else.

Hoover was a gay crossdresser (look it up). Think about that for a minute!
NO Thinking About It. It just was NOT a part of the conversation..... At the time. I don't deny Hoover's proclivity. I just KNOW he did NOT worked as an agent while cross-dressing. Bureaucrat - YES, Agent - No.

The reason the Director of the FBI is now limited to a 10 year post.

The fact that POTUS can simply fire the FBI director provides the evidence that FBI/DOJ is fundamentally a tool of the Executive, thus leading to the question:

How will POTUS Trump use his Executive power to effect "justice?"

DOJ/FBI/.../.... always fell under the Executive Branch.
Executive Branch RUNS the .gov.
Congress makes the budget and passes BILLS for consideration as LAWS.
SCOTUS - Rules ( at least suppose too decide) whether the Laws passed are CONSTITUTIONALLY SUPPORTED.

Only Three Branches.

Well, I have been royally f*cked over by Treasury and DOJ during the last two administrations.

Will this POTUS be any different? We shall soon see...

1 corrupt attorney down (Comey), at least 1 more to go (Lynch). Then it's on to Huma, Weener, and the Clintoons who will be charged and prosecuted with collusion, fraud, obstruction of justice, perjury, treason etc.. We might be getting somewhere here folks.
Hard to believe but I guess we'll see

This was posted by someone named BasketOfPepes on reddit:
I can't believe Comey is fired, holy shit. My mom came into my room to bring me a plate of chicken nuggets and I literally screamed at her and hit the plate of chicken nuggets out of her hand. She started yelling and swearing at me and I slammed the door on her. I'm so distressed right now I don't know what to do. I didn't mean to do that to my mom but I'm literally in shock from the results today. I feel like I'm going to explode. Why the fucking fuck was he fired? This can't be happening. I'm having a fucking breakdown. I don't want to believe the world is so corrupt. I want a future to believe in. I want Comey to be the director and investigate this broken Russian conspiracy. I cannot fucking deal with this right now. It wasn't supposed to be like this, I thought he was going to impeach Trump for his war crimes???? This is so fucked.

Talk about wound too tightly! ...dude abused his mom and wasted his chicken nuggets because Trump fired a lying, two faced, piece of garbage.

Surely anybody that despises Trump as much as this dude seemingly does(who the hell assaults their mother?!?), hated Comey for pretending to re-open the investigation right before the election.

Dude probably did a 360 on Jimmy Comey, just like most of the jaggov libs in CONgress. Now that he's rightly looking for work as a security guard at a BBY warehouse he's suddenly JC supercop to these fickle weenies.
