Senate Nomination Hearing for FBI Director Christopher Wray Scheduled for Wednesday 9:30am

The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold the nomination hearing for the position of FBI Director on Wednesday July 12th at 9:30am EDT.   President Trump has nominated Christopher Wray to become the head of the FBI replacing fired director James Comey.

Chairman Chuck Grassley announces:

The Senate Committee on the Judiciary hearing entitled: “Nominations” scheduled for Wednesday, July 12, 2017 will now begin at 9:30 a.m., in Room 226 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building. (link)

Christopher Wray’s confirmation hearing may dive into his legal background but will almost certainly focus on the political nonsense infecting DC. Democrats will be seeking assurances of his independence from President Donald Trump. Lawyers and FBI agents who have worked with Mr. Wray don’t expect that to be a problem, describing him as calm, methodical and even-handed.

    Just more reasons why people will abandon the Democrats in 2018, irregardless of how stubborn the GOPe will be with Trump’s America First policies. No matter how bad the Rs are, the Democrats are straight up radioactive. Also:

    Ryan won’t go to a a town hall. That right there should tell you about the state of the GOPe, and the fact that people are on to their scam. The villagers are right outside the gates, and they’re wielding torches and pitchforks.

    And they’re P1$$ED.

      Frankly, town hall meetings usually get high jacked by paid liberal protesters, who pretend to be from the local areas. Foolish congress members then fall for the ruse.

        Exactly wink. I would never defend one of these rinos, but holding townhalls now are only giving the lefty professional thugs a platform with msm licking their chops waiting to air each repub that gets beat up. These are NOT grass root tea partiers who attended town halls with policy objections and manners. After what happened to Scalise, I do not blame any R for not holding a townhall, unless they are secured and attendees provide proof of residency.

          I do not like lyin ryan one little bit but I am POd that the leftists have pretty much destroyed the idea of a Town Hall meeting. Congressman here only does online TH.

          I would absolutely support limiting Town Halls to proven residents of said elected official’s district. Make that residents who actually voted. If you don’t vote don’t bitch.

          One may have the right to free speech but that doesn’t require anyone to listen.

      Well I hope they are “pissed” enough THIS TIME to vote differently than last time.

      I have (and will donate again) to Paul Nehlan’s campaign to take that spot (as an ‘out of state’ donor).

      But it’s really “up to the locals” to get the job done – and last time – they didn’t.

      I do hope this time is different. We shall see..

        I really wish TRUMP would come out in support of NEHLEN because he is a not only a business man but a big TRUMP supporter……. District 1 has pretended NOT to see how Lyin Ryan has lied to them for years , so, I do not have high hopes they will get rid of this PoS…….NEHLEN tried really hard to inform District 1 in 2016, But they chose to stand by their darling…. It’s a shame because Everything NEHLEN warned them about was shown to be true……

        Actually, I put the blame squarely on those running the show – the GOP.

        At any point in the game, Mitch and Co. can declare that time for a particular nominee is no longer being spent on relevant topics, and thus has become merely showboating, grand standing, an stalling. He could then move to close the hearing and send the nominee to the floor for an up and down vote. He hasn’t done so on any nominee yet.

        Likewise, he could very easily schedule the nominee hearings as taking precedence over any other hearings…and it isn’t like they have a full calendar of bills to consider (they don’t). Yet, he doesn’t, and hasn’t done so for any nominee PTrump has picked for consideration.

        Mitch McConnell and his supporters are as much part of the stall as are the Democrats.

    WOW this is huge! It is amazing that this man was nominated about a month ago but you hardly hear a word about him. Even the day our President tweeted that he selected Mr. Wray to head the FBI, the next day was the Comey testimony so it went unchallenged in the MSM or among the Democrats. Now out of left field we get this wonderful news. In the time since our President’s tweet, Comey has completely destroyed all his credibility and had our Lion sent this tweet out today:

    This will be the beginning of the end for the Clintons and many more of the RATS in D.C. HRC will no longer be called a pathological liar because her comment will ring true for the world to see.

But then again, since the beginning of our Great Society, what Alphabet Agency hasn’t accumulated power that has destroyed the original Founders’ idea of “checks and balances”? Besides the 500+ employees removed from the VA, I’m waiting for about 50,000+ from a few other agencies.

      • Maquis says:

        No ploblemo! We are blessed though, truly, to have found CTH and have this incredible, and I do mean incredible as in previously completely unthinkable having so long despaired over the abuses and destructions of Obama, this incredible view of our Country on the World Stage and the nascent renaissance of American Moral Authority and Righteous Leadership that President Trump is methodically establishing while America’s Enemies, spearheaded by the Dark Legacy Media, are still choking on their own bile and recklessly launching assault after assault on The Sons of Liberty despite their vile volleys mostly landing on tbeir own heads.

        The perspective that Sundance freely offers us is simply astounding. Our Treehouse is full of intelligent people who are, despite our Cold Anger, at peace. Walking with an understanding that affords us the ability to recognize that we are watching, nay, participating in, a Restoration, a moment of American Revival wrought by Providence through a remarkable man who will be regarded by History as one of our most consequential, successful and important Presidents.

        We are not tempest tossed as are those that only see what the Enemies of America spew and vomit in their unbridled obsession of destroying our President.

        Those enemies are failing, only feeding the Loonies the lies they live to hear and fervently swallow without discernment nor comprehension of the foolishness of their senseless hate and relentless opposition. The Enemy Media will fail, but they are doing much damage, wilfully, to the minds of those that feed on the muck, further poisoning their sick souls.

        They are also confusing and wearing down those inclined to support our President but who cannot find a sane source of reporting. Positivity and Truthfulness is an elusive quarry, difficult to find in the best of times.

        That is why I send people to The Treehouse. To learn the reality, understand the players, trust in MAGA, openly support our President, and fight with confidence and an arsenal of Truth.

      Graft is a nice old fashioned term that fits well. Politicians taking payoffs in terms of campaign donations and undisclosed promises of high incomes from crooks who back them once out of office is no different than graft. Bribery is more, IMO, like taking money for a single action. Graft implies reciprocity. IMO politicians have reciprocity when they get plum jobs after leaving office. Graft implies complicity as well.

      I agree. People who voted for our president should run. We have abdicated our role in the political process, have refused to get involved, and would rather complain. I don’t want to sound harsh, but complaining without attempting to work for different results through campaigning and finding people to run for office is not a good thing. Now is the time for people to network and reconnect and find good candidates for the primaries. Candidates are declaring now for some races.

      Virginians, I know the Republican running for governor is a disappointment. The big picture is Virginia does not (?) have an election for governor until after 2020. Democrats are going to do more of the same and legalize more felons to vote in the presidential election if a Democrat wins that race, so please think about the big picture.


      • Daniel Camac says:

        Kerneath, we did not abdicate. We voted for President Donald Trump and beat the beast.
        But I do agree that we need to step up. I retired at 55, five years ago and have just signed on to making the RNC understand that they would not be where they are without President Trump.

        Saying that, I understand the pressures of working, raising a family and being politically involved. I never was until last year when I saw realized our country was being destroyed.

        I lost my first wife, mother of our four sons, at 36. Lost my 2nd wife 10 years later due to mental illness, she hung herself. Then my second oldest son Jarek, after serving 3 tours as a gunner for the 10th Mountain Division of Fort Drum in Afghanisistan, OD’ed on H when the VA cut off his opiod scripts.

        So I”m fighting for all of them and the rest of the “deplorables”. We beat the British from an ocean away, surely we can defeat creatures hiding in the swamps.

    It seems like everyone in Washington is in a delay mode for President Trumps Nominations and Policies. Was not Washington just on recess and why did not President Trump place his back log of nominations while they are on recess? Who’s job is to put pressure on the Senate in the Administration getting these Nominations through? Trump needs to tweet this everyday.

      The only good thin about this is that the Trump Effect is making us — and America at large — well aware of things we either did not clearly see or did not notice at all before.

      Part of draining any swamp is clearly identifying all the critters. And, boy, are we seeing them, dirty muddy things that they are.


      • Maquis says:

        True that.

        No matter one’s former level of political awareness, PDJT and MAGA are nevertheless lifting the scales from our eyes. Thank God for Sundance and CTH.


    • Maquis says:

      If Trump placed them on recess, a recess appointment, then their term is limited to the end of the next session of the Senate, now roughly interpreted as the end of the following calendar year, unless they are confirmed during that time. Case in point, John Bolton, recess appointed by BushII, who was never and confirmed and had a brief tenure as our UN ambassador.

      I am certain that PDJT intends his chosen leaders to endure to the end, not begin as Lame Ducks whose only chance at confirmation lacks the political pressure of a vacancy and also carries the burden of having actually performed well in the position, which a disqualifier to the Left whose voices and lies against the official will only escalate if they accept a temporary appointment and develop a successful track record.

      I also believe that PDJT understands that making a temporary appointment conveys, in the minds of too many, a sense of illegitimacy, that would be super-hyped by today’s Left. It would undermine the effectiveness of the official, his every action a risk and liability on so many levels, reducing his effectiveness at MAGA.

      We need to fight, now, for these appointments. No American should be unaware of what McConnell and his Leftist buddies are doing to our Country’s well being.
