Ridding America of James Comey was only the first small step for mankind in draining the swamp. A real swamp drainer replacement is going to be needed–one who can be confirmed by the Senate, including with needed support from the dirty rats Lindsay Graham and John McCain.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio is not on any list, probably because he’s facing legal troubles and would incite a revolt among RINO Republicans and ALL Democrats. Trump supporter, former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, is also missing from this list.
Proving that their not racists, many Trump supporters like Sheriff David Clarke, above. He’s already stated that he would push to put Hillary Clinton on trial and in prison.
Much to the chagrin of feminists, no women are on anybody’s list.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday began the process of interviewing interim FBI directors after the ouster of James Comey – with former NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly and Gov. Chris Christie likely candidates, according to reports.
Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who is leading the agency in the interim, is one of the people being interviewed by Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, CNN reported on Wednesday.
The cable news channel reported that candidates are not limited to people inside the bureau and about four to eight people will be interviewed.
The Associated Press named Kelly and Christie among possible candidates.
It also listed David Clarke, the sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisc., a staunch supporter of President Trump who spoke at the Republican National Convention last July, and Rep. Trey Gowdy, a Republican who headed up the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s actions during the attack on the US Embassy in Benghazi.
On the AP’s list are:
The longest-serving police commissioner in New York City, Kelly oversaw the force in the years following the Sept. 11 attacks when terror threats were routine. His tough-on-crime stance, including support for provocative tactics like stop-and-frisk, could make him a natural ally of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and a go-to guy for a fellow New Yorker like Trump. Kelly as commissioner defended a police operation, exposed by the Associated Press, that conducted secret surveillance of Muslims. He could partner with Trump and Sessions on anti-terrorism efforts.
Though his relationship with Trump has been topsy-turvy, the governor of New Jersey has known the president for years and could bring law enforcement bona fides to the job.
Christie is a former Republican-appointed United States attorney in New Jersey, and he cited that background time and again during his 2016 presidential campaign. His legacy as governor took a hit, however, with the Bridgegate scandal that was investigated by the FBI, prosecuted by the Justice Department and that brought down some of his allies.
A wild card, but the outspoken and polarizing Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, sheriff has been a fierce supporter of Trump and even landed a speaking spot at last summer’s Republican National Convention. A conservative firebrand known for his cowboy hat, Clarke has called himself “one of those bare-knuckles fighters” and has been critical of what he called the “hateful ideology” of the Black Lives Matters movement. But he’d be a long shot given that a county jury recently recommended criminal charges against seven Milwaukee County jail staffers in the dehydration death of an inmate who went without water for seven days.
The South Carolina Republican led the House committee investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s actions surrounding the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya. Gowdy is also a former federal prosecutor who boasts of his work on drug trafficking, bank robberies and child pornography cases. He was among lawmakers critical of Comey’s decision not to prosecute Clinton in the email server investigation, saying other government officials would have been prosecuted if they handled classified information like Clinton did, but federal officials disagree with that assessment. Gowdy said after Comey’s firing that though he had differences with the former FBI director on some matters, he “never lost sight of the fact that he had a very difficult job.”
