    My dream: tomorrow trump calls Sherrif Clark and asks him to take a few thousand arrows for the team.

    Not saying he would be confirmed, but politically, I think it would be brilliant. The base would be emboldened and the left is already unhinged ….

    Nominating Kelly or an ex rep that thinks trump wasn’t surveilled (without evidence) – who will go to bat for them? McCain?

    Give us the torch (Clark) and let us burn it down.

      Or…PDJT could appoint Sheriff Clarke as ‘interim Director’, and then take his own sweet time about appointing a permanent Director.

      The interim Director does not have to be confirmed by the Senate.

      I hope Sheriff Clarke is the nominee. We really need him. It would make it hard to vote against him for a lot of Dems. Sheriff Clarke is also a registered democrat. He said in an interview that a Republican could not win in Milwaukee county.

      • I’ll take a swing at it. I’m only theorizing, mind you. IMO, it isn’t only about the news. Those in Congress (and half the public) are evaluating the President’s motives, abilities and decisions all the time. Though he has the power to fire an FBI director for any or no reason, there is still a political risk in doing it, depending on what is publicly perceived as the cause.

        The Trump administration hasn’t quite gotten it together yet on the need for consistent messaging throughout the staff. Over the last 48 hours, the justification for Comey’s firing keeps changing, depending on who explains and answers questions about it. This gives ammunition for critics in Congress, media and part of the public to say the President is dishonest, trying to cover up something. It impacts his approval ratings, and provides more momentum for appointing an independent Special Prosecutor to continue probing Russian attempts to destabilize our election process.

              • You appear to not understand the basic meaning of the word evaluation. It means to assess or examine something in order to make value judgements. If you are examining something or someone to understand it/them, you are evaluating. You can then apply your evaluation to a purpose, but you can’t (to use your example) look for ways to bring someone down without FIRST making the evaluation that they SHOULD be brought down.

                It is impossible to listen, read or view things and then retain them in memory without making an evaluation. Evaluations may be negative, positive or a mixture of both.

The have the state AG from Kansas, Kris something who is a BULLDOG on these issues, and they are going to be looking not just at voter fraud which I have felt is ignoring half the problem. It isn’t the few hundred here and there that are reported as voting twice or voting a dead person’s ballot. The BIG fraud, I suspect, is in the registration process where loads of people (TY, Motor Voter) are registered via the “honor system.” They are also going to look at the Census because it ties in, too, in some fashion. Forget how. Sorry, long day.

    I watched the Press briefing today, and it was obvious that Sarah Huckabee was getting frustrated with the same questions over and over again. She did a great job hitting back. My suggestion would be for her to cut off the same line of questions after a certain point and say something to the point that is the time I will answer today on that question. Any of the Trump spokespersons should do this. KellyAnn Conway is good at this. Then I would ask for a different question and call on that person to change the narrative. Sarah is letting the WH Press control the narrative with the same questions over and over again. There are other important things going on such as OCare collapsing, Trump’s EOs, tax reform, Trump meeting with Kissinger, etc. that needed to be discussed. She can’t rely on the Press to bring it up because that doesn’t fit the narrative. They want to take out Trump, so the WH has to start changing the narrative to what they want it to be. Don’t let the left-wing media do the bidding for the Dems. This is just my 2 cents and observations.

      Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. Dianne Feinstein made a statement on former FBI Director Comey’s firing during a committee markup.

      Congressional officials were told by FBI Director James Comey before he was fired that there are just a small number of Americans who are targets of the criminal or counterintelligence probes involving Russia and that none were President Trump or his top aides, Circa has confirmed.

      Behind closed doors, Comey provided specific updates on about a half dozen or less targeted US citizens who were the focus of either counterintelligence probes or criminal investigations emanating from the Russia election scandal, sources familiar with the intelligence told Circa.

      “President Trump is not a target nor is any senior government official if Comey’s account is correct,” one source said, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because that person was not authorized to comment.

    Forwarded:

    Here are 10 of Comey’s biggest embarrassments at the FBI:

    1. Before he bombed the Boston Marathon, the FBI interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev but let him go. Russia sent the Obama Administration a second warning, but the FBI opted against investigating him again.

    2. Shortly after the NSA scandal exploded in 2013, the FBI was exposed conducting its own data mining on innocent Americans; the agency, Bloomberg reported, retains that material for decades (even if no wrongdoing is found).

    3. The FBI had possession of emails sent by Nidal Hasan saying he wanted to kill his fellow soldiers to protect the Taliban — but didn’t intervene, leading many critics to argue the tragedy that resulted in the death of 31 Americans at Fort Hood could have been prevented.

    4. During the Obama Administration, the FBI claimed that two private jets were being used primarily for counter-terrorism, when in fact they were mostly being used for Eric Holder and Robert Mueller’s business and personal travel.

    5. When the FBI demanded Apple create a “backdoor” that would allow law enforcement agencies to unlock the cell phones of various suspects, the company refused, sparking a battle between the feds and America’s biggest tech company. What makes this incident indicative of Comey’s questionable management of the agency is that a) The FBI jumped the gun, as they were indeed ultimately able to crack the San Bernardino terrorist’s phone, and b) Almost every other major national security figure sided with Apple (from former CIA Director General Petraeus to former CIA Director James Woolsey to former director of the NSA, General Michael Hayden), warning that such a “crack” would inevitably wind up in the wrong hands.

    6. In 2015, the FBI conducted a controversial raid on a Texas political meeting, finger printing, photographing, and seizing phones from attendees (some in the group believe in restoring Texas as an independent constitutional republic).

    7. During its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material, the FBI made an unusual deal in which Clinton aides were both given immunity and allowed to destroy their laptops.

    8. The father of the radical Islamist who detonated a backpack bomb in New York City in 2016 alerted the FBI to his son’s radicalization. The FBI, however, cleared Ahmad Khan Rahami after a brief interview.

    9. The FBI also investigated the terrorist who killed 49 people and wounded 53 more at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Fla. Despite a more than 10-month investigation of Omar Mateen — during which Mateen admitting lying to agents — the FBI opted against pressing further and closed its case.

    10. CBS recently reported that when two terrorists sought to kill Americans attending the “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas, the FBI not only had an understanding an attack was coming, but actually had an undercover agent traveling with the Islamists, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi. The FBI has refused to comment on why the agent on the scene did not intervene during the attack.

    Another scandal?

    Russian charged with breaching U.S. firms says FBI attempted to coerce confession over Clinton hack

    A Russian man wanted by the Justice Department on charges connected to hacking U.S. companies now claims the FBI offered him immunity in exchange for accepting responsibility for cyberattacks targeting former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

    Yevgeny Nikulin, the alleged hacker, laid the claim to Russian media Thursday in a letter sent from a Czech Republic prison cell amid an international extradition battle currently underway between Washington and Moscow.

    FBI agents promised Mr. Nikulin money, American citizenship and a free apartment for taking the fall over hacking Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, he alleged in a letter published Thursday by Nastoyashchoe Vremya, a Russian-language website.

    “[They told me:] you will have to confess to breaking into Clinton’s inbox for [President Trump] on behalf of [Russian President Vladimir Putin],” Mr. Nikulin wrote, as translated by The Moscow Times.

    “He was offered to falsely testify that he was cooperating in the attack on the Democratic Party,” defense attorney Martin Sadilek said Thursday, the Associated Press reported.
    The FBI declined to comment.

      Holy cow – if this is true there is going to be a blow up at the FBI. It will also confirm the reasons why Trump fired Comey.

      If this is true, could McCabe have instigated this since he expressed so much hatred towards Flynn and President Trump…..

      I don’t remember if McCabe made those hateful comments to his senior agents before or after Comey was fired.

      First attempt of the FBI agents bribing Mr. Nikulin was November and another one three months later, according to the WT article.

      Regardless, get McCabe outta there! Anyone who thinks like that, let alone expresses that thought, does not need to even be interim Director of the FBI.

    I am strongly of the opinion that the new FBI director should be a “No Name”.

    Somebody from within the FBI.. a former Special Agent who has worked his way up through the ranks.
    ANY of the names suggested.. Rudy, Christie etc have “perceived” political bias which will be brought up ad nauseam by the Dims and their FakeNews poodles.

    Of course…. I do think that Trump should ascertain IN PRIVATE that any potential appointee thinks Hillary and her gang are crooks who need to be indicted.. and locked up.

      The thing is…the FBI agents who have ‘worked their way up in the ranks’ in recent years, are tainted because they received their promotions from the guys at the top who are tainted.

      In order to find someone within the FBI who is squeaky clean…PDJT would have to step over a lot of senior agents.

      This is why, with the current situation at the Bureau, it will probably be necessary to pick someone from outside the organization.

  33. Whether or not the Deep state contracted for a hit on Trump, as reported in this article, well, you can decide for yourself. But, I believe, the rest of this article is well sourced and has some interesting insights into what is happening.

    In ideal world FBI and director should be independent. Next president will put own director so it’s Trump time to have own FBI director and keep Hillary in the box otherwise she and Obama would keep giving trouble.

    The Pro Publica interviews with Comey, contained in the last link above, point out that 8,000 deleted messages from the first months in 2009 that the Clinton private server was initially in use have never been found in the FBI “inquiry”. Comey is quoted as saying that the search for those originating messages motivated his disclosure of the Anthony Weiner subpoenas on October 28th. If found, these “first use” emails could present evidence as to Clinton’s “intent” in setting up the private server in the first place, Comey explained.

    If Weiner’s laptop contained the missing “initial messages” and that evidence showed criminal intent, a US Attorney would have evidence to prosecute Clinton, contrary to Comey’s press conference “closing argument” in July, 2016. In the linked article, I read it that Comey was relieved that the deleted “initial messages” were not found and his exhonoration of Clinton from criminal misconduct could stand unchallenged.

    President Trump is correct in Comey’s discharge from the Director’s office at FBI. The 8,000 “initial” messages from the Clinton private server have been successfully concealed … so far.

    I love it how Lester tries to get Trump to pin the AG with the responsibility for deciding to fire Comey, and Trump just blows that out of the water by telling Lester he would have fired Comey no matter what.

    Trump always owns the downside. WINNING!

    Please take a tip on interviews from Wilburine–say what you would if still in private business. In employment matters, that’s dates of employment, positions officially held and nothing more. PDJT is not a lawyer and especially not a criminal investigator or prosecutor (ambiguity intended). Comey’s handling of the Klintoon Komputer Krimes was more like an overworked 1st year state ada’s job than a gold standard investigation of high level cybersecurity breaches affecting national security. However, even a 1st year persecutors would be acutely aware of the difference between specific and general intent. Ergo, he’s FIRED!

    There is nothing to be gained by Mr. Trump granting interviews to the anti-Trump media. He should go on the offensive and be heard on the media outlets that are on his side, i.e. Conservative Radio. The only thing he provides to the MSM is an opportunity to slice and dice his comments in their non-stop bombardment of negative portrayal/betrayal of MAGA. It is time to drain the swamp, not listen to the swamp inhabitants (UniParty) or try to reassure them. They are unreasoning in their hatred and will never allow Mr. Trump to have a fair and open platform to discuss his achievements.
