    It appears Wray and Sessions are both more concerned about the morale of those under them than upholding their sworn duties. There will NEVER be equal justice under the law with these clowns in charge.

      It appears to me, that both Wray and Sessions are trying to appear as impartial as possible, so that when the sh!t hits the fan, it will be harder for people to claim a political motive.

        I absolutely agree with you!

        NYDaveviii has been on fire on Twitter!

        This OG report is going to take on even more importance because it will be the basis for the arrests and prosecutions that we are going to see. The House of Cards are going to drop dramatically once it is released. The fact that Strzok used the Dossier to file the FISA warrant will put an end to this fiasco and open up a can of whip ass that we can’t even imagine on the corrupt agents in the FBI, HRC, Barry from Kenya etc. The day of reckoning is upon us. In a month or so Winter will drop on these BASTARDS like they have never seen before.

        Folks don’t ever forget that the anticipation of DEATH is far worse than DEATH itself!

    There is a disconnect in the Treehouse between those who are suspicious of any official who has been entrenched in government for a long time and gotten along with members of the swamp (although they may have said the “right” thing or even voted the right way–all the while accomplishing nothing)….and those who believe that anyone the President nominates will automatically and enthusiastically do the right thing to support the President no matter the blowback. This is sad.

    Personally, I believe in the trust but verify motto, having been burned more than once by those who said all of the right things while doing none of them when times were tough.

    The fact that we are in different camps on this ought not to divide us, since we are all on the same page in supporting the President and all that is true and good.

    Those of us who are somewhat distrustful of certain officials truly hope that those who are not are right.

    Anyone who is on board and standing shoulder to shoulder the with President Trump is good with me. I reserve the right to oppose those who, bowing to the forces of PC, fear man.

      Trump’s election was such a shock to the federal bureaucracy that they cannot or will not adjust to it. Unfortunately weak leaders like Sessions and Wray are either unable or unwilling to enforce compliance and maker their staffs adjust. Tillerson, on the other hand, is clearly making that happen at DOS. The difference, businessman vs. professional politicians/swamp creatures. Appointing Sessions was a major mistake, perhaps fatal in the end.

      Agree LM. In any discourse over Trump appointees, I try to channel Trump. He has stated in the past that he trusts no one. While I trust Trump, his judgements and his hires, want ALL of them to be good guys, their actions will earn my trust, not the fact that Trump appointed them. Imo, Trump will also be watchful.

      I believe you have this backward.

      I trust President Trump’s appointees because I trust President Trump. I believe he wouldn’t nominate people unwilling to do the right thing.

      President Trump has shown he’s willing to fire people who don’t. Remember Tom Price? What’s he doing lately?

            • Padric says:

              Sorry but there’s zero reason for the level of vitriol you’ve displayed over Mr. Wray. He’s pretty much told the committee, “Look, I’m not going to be able to answer a lot of your questions because none of you have the clearance for the answers.” Isn’t following proper security protocol one of the things we wanted in an FBI Director?

              He’s also told them that he’s waiting on the IG report before doing anything which is, again, the proper thing to do because it is not only the proper protocol but allows Wray to act without being accused of playing politics.

              He also flat out said that if the IG report indicates that political bias played a role in the HRC email investigation, he will re-open it (IE “we will seek to unring that bell”). Do we already know it was politically influenced? Of course we do. But the real trick to doing this is re-opening it in a way that DOESN’T seem politically motivated. Waiting for the IG report does that.

              If you honestly expected him to go out there and spill everything he knows while laying waste to politically motivated agents and proclaiming that he would re-open the HRC email case now, then you have unrealistic expectations. That’s your problem, not his.

              And just to be upfront, I am yet to form an opinion on Wray. His performance today that I saw was typical of what a good manager who has recently taken over an embattled and demoralized department. You praise the good things and promise to fix what’s bad. Patience is not just a virtue in that context, it is an absolute must. The real proof will be his actions once the report comes out. As the old saying goes, actions speak louder than words.

      Wray is not impressive in this appearance. Was expecting more. However, he cannot get out ahead of the DoJ OIG’s report on the investigation of the DoJ and the FBI. Maybe his interview would have been more appropriate later?

    The purges.

    “In the last 12 months US backed combat operations drove ISIS from its last bits of territory; America withdrew from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, UNESCO, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The House and Senate have come within sight of overhauling the tax code and dismantling Obamacare. Most recently Donald Trump in a spectacular departure from his predecessor’s Middle Eastern diplomacy has moved the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

    “It is as if a hurricane has swept through Washington. Each fallen pillar represents a very deliberate reversal of the status quo ante policies of Barack Obama.”

      You need to read and consider Wray’s bio.

      Won the highest award in DOJ during his tenure there.

      Super-lawyer – gave up 7+ million annual salary to come deal with mess in FBI.

      Married to many generation Atlanta royalty, major street named after her family, live in family home.

      Specializes in white collar crime, likely brought in to coordinate/prosecutions of big name politicians such as HRC and O, Holder, Lynch, et al.

      Time will tell which side he’s on.
