Christopher Wray Accepts Nomination for FBI Director…

Christopher A. Wray delivers a statement on his nomination by President Donald J. Trump to lead the FBI:

“I am honored and humbled to be nominated by the President to lead the FBI, the premier law enforcement organization in the world. From my earliest days working with agents as a line prosecutor to my time working with them at the Department of Justice in the aftermath of 9/11, I have been inspired by the men and women of the FBI – inspired by their professionalism, integrity, courage, and sacrifice for the public.

If confirmed, it will be a privilege and honor to once again work with them. America faces grave threats both here and abroad, and the FBI, in concert with its federal, state, and local partners continues to work steadfastly to prevent and hold accountable those responsible for these threats. I look forward to the confirmation process, and pledge my complete commitment to fairly and honorably protecting our country and upholding our Constitution and laws.” (link)

    Mr. Wray, I consider your appointment to be one of the most critically important positions at this point in time of our nation’s history. You can right this ship so that the rule of law once again reigns supreme. From your background I am confident that you understand the FBI conducts CRIMINAL investigations – and that every ROI sets forth ONLY the presentation of found facts – not opinions or political agendas… and that it is the FBI’s job to present the found facts to DOJ so that a decision can be made by the DOJ to act or not act on the FBI’s found facts.

    Best of luck to you Mr. Wray.

    Stellar leadership is much-needed at the FBI. I hope the many honorable agents who have been put through the ringer the past 8+ years now find themselves re energized and supported once again. And may those determined to screw our country find themselves out of a job in very short order.

    Best of luck, Mr. Wray! Thank you.

      From Circa:

      “McCabe eventually became the bureau’s No. 2 executive and emerged as a central player in the FBI’s Russia election tampering investigation, putting him in a position to impact the criminal inquiry against Flynn.

      Three FBI employees told Circa they personally witnessed McCabe make disparaging remarks about Flynn before and during the time the retired Army general emerged as a figure in the Russia case.”

          ________________

          Sessions?

          You mean Attorney General Jeff Sessions?

          Apparently he went into the Witness Protection Program. Here are just a FEW of the things any Attorney General must do to restore the Rule of Law in a nation that has been lawless for EIGHT years:

          1) investigate and arrest and prosecute the traitor Obama

          2) investigate and arrest and prosecute the traitors Clinton (both of them)

          3) investigate and arrest and prosecute the traitor Soros

          If you don’t decapitate that three-headed Pyro-hydra, then you’re just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic while the band plays on.

          Also arrest and prosecute:

          4) Loretta Lynch

          5) Eric Holder

          6) Valerie Jarrett

          7) Susan Rice

          8) Jeh Johnson

          9) Lois Lerner

          10) Koskinen (IRS)

          11) Jim Comey

          12) James Clapper

          13) John Brennan

          11) the three islamic Awan brothers who managed office information technology for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and other lawmakers

          12) the mayors and governors of every town and city and village who make themselves a ‘sanctuary’ for illegal aliens

          That’s just the few I can think of at the moment, there must be at least 30 more mid-level and high level criminals associated with the Obama/Clinton/Soros crime syndicate who are actively subverting the nation and the presidency of Donald J. Trump.

          I sure hope the reason for Sessions’ disappearing act is because he is busy managing 30+ grand juries into all of the above, but if that was true, it would have leaked by now.

          So what is he doing?!?

      “I just was talking with my brother and we both thought it was odd that we haven’t heard anything about Mr. Wray.”

      Yes. My thoughts also. Here’s what I think it might be.

      Wray is employed at King & Spalding/Special Matters and Government Investigations Practice Group (“SM”), which is headquartered in Atlanta.

      Other Former K&S/DoJ employees are:

      Griffin Bell (ex-AG)
      Larry Thompson (ex-DAG/K&S-SM)
      Sally Yates
      Reno’s 3rd in chain of command – SM

      Headquartered in Atlanta (many other Fortune 100 entities):

      K&S
      CNN
      Coca-Cola (K&S has been outside counsel for C-C from the get go)

      In little ‘ole Atlanta, CNN isn’t going to attack Wray. No way. Politics. All other alphabets will follow suit.

      Wray is qualified for the job. I reserve my opinion of Wray based on his performance results. In due time if no one ultimately goes to jail in the O-Hag-Clapper-Lynch-Comey criminal mob, then I will conclude he is a black hat and has other driving motives.

      We’ll see.

    From Wikipoo,

    “Christopher Wray was born in New York City,[4] to Cecil Wray Jr., a partner at the Debevoise & Plimpton law firm, and Gilda (Gates) Wray, a program officer for the Charles Hayden Foundation.[5] He attended the private boarding school Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts.[6] In 1989, Wray graduated cum laude from Yale University, then earned his J.D. degree in 1992 at Yale Law School. While at Yale, Wray was the executive editor of the Yale Law Journal. Wray spent a year clerking for Judge J. Michael Luttig of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.[7]

    Wray joined King & Spalding in 2005 as a litigation partner in the firm’s Washington, D.C., and Atlanta offices. King & Spalding clients include Rosneft and Gazprom, two of Russia’s largest state-controlled oil companies; Rosneft has been named in connection with the Donald Trump–Russia dossier controversy.[11][12] Wray represented several Fortune 100 companies and chaired the King & Spalding Special Matters and Government Investigations Practice Group.[2] During his time at King & Spalding, Wray acted as New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s personal attorney during the Bridgegate scandal.[13][14] During the scandal, defense attorneys for a pair of Christie’s inner circle sought access to Christie’s missing cellphone.[15] Two years later, the phone turned up in Wray’s possession.[16][14]”

    The New FBI Director Understands Complex Criminal Codes, has Experience in Prosecuting Big Cases and Understands the inner workings of Prosecutorial Legal Proceedings along with Experience in Government Justice Criminal Divisions.

    This Experience is Extremely Necessary; you can’t find Corruption unless you understand the Law along with the Experience.

    Christopher Wray has the Opportunity to become the Greatest FBI Director Ever by bringing back the Rule of Law, Helping President Trump Save the Constitution and the United States.

    President Trump’s New FBI Director Confirms what everyone already knows; 150% confirms that all Treason, Sedition, Espionage and Corruption will be Investigated for the past 8 years, there will be many Grand Jury Panels, and Punishments for all Proven Criminal Act (Beyond a reasonable doubt) to ensure the Constitution and the United States will never be at Risk Again.

    Mr. Wray is very experienced and deserving of the nomination so he should be able to handle the thespian and partisan Democrat barrage that is coming. I suspect Wray will be ready for any questions they might throw at him and he will slow down the grilling if he has to and answer meticulously so he doesn’t open any “controversial” doors like A/G Sessions did with Al Franken’s rambling “hot off the press” allegation about the fake Russian dossier that led to confusion about Jeff’s answer. The Dems hyped that understandable answer until Sessions recent Committee appearance where he finally successfully pushed back.

    Let’s hope that Mr. Wray will return the FBI to its mission and aggressively clean up the corruption in DC. Here are some excerpts from a Q&A with FBI Anon – an anonymous FBI source:

    Q: How does FBI rank and file feel about Comey’s firing?
    A: In public, mixed feelings; but privately, many of us are pleased. The rank and file feel like trained fight dogs waking up to the sound of gunfire and realizing they are muzzled. The agency has been politically weaponized. Most of us know how hard the agency worked to dismantle the Hoover era political tradecraft and to see it alive and well is disheartening. If we were given a mandate to investigate DC in its entirety, you could see 70% of your politicians being indicted. The Rank and File want nothing more than to see Americans witness that nobody, no matter how powerful, is above the law. I felt Comey was a good guy, but now feel he was compromised and did a disservice to the nation on July 5th 2016 [when he essentially read a bill of indictment for Hillary’s felony violations of federal law and then rewrote federal law and gave her a get-of-of-jail-free pass].

    Q: How dangerous is Comey’s firing for Clinton?
    A: Very dangerous. But, few are thinking it through. The real danger is if she is given partial immunity. if HRC is facing serious prison time, and she can reduce her sentence by playing ball, we expect this will be the most profound thing Trump can do to drain the swamp. HRC has the goods on Schumer, and McCain, Graham, Blumenthal, and so much more. Imagine the most powerful mafia Don snitching on 30 years of tangled and corrupt relationships. Then triple the effect. HRC could effectively put 200 people currently in power behind bars.This may be Trump’s chess move, …

    Q: Which of the dominoes involved in the Clinton Foundation – pay-to-play, pedophile, drug-running,gun running, human trafficking, organ harvesting, money laundering (etc.) network is most likely to be the first to fall,if any at all?
    A: All of the above, plus, the Israeli lobby, when fully exposed, with show how the alphabets have been compromised by a foreign nation. I believe Steele indicated that our “truest ally” is actually our national extortionist,and it’s true. Imagine the public’s reaction when they find 80% of our senators and congressmen are on the take,allowing espionage, extortion and pedophilia to become the norm…..
