#1 He should be, for slow-walking the Russiagate stuff, and for being so incompetent as to ignore Antifa and instead say White Supremacists are the biggest internal threat, sheer incompetence or else covering for the swamp.

#2 Screw the firings. Close the FBI. Put all money related stuff (bank robbery, counterfeiting, money laundering, gambling) with Treasury / Secret Service / US Marshals. Put all violent interstate crime with US Marshals. Put all interaction with the IC in the trash can.

#3 If Wray is not part of the problem, he ain't part of the solution, either. He should be sacked straight away.

#4 We know they are already working around the FBI in terms of tracking down and arresting the worst of the Antifa/BLM cadres and the financiers of the current riots, which would be a signal to the wise that his services were surplus to requirements.

#5 As a retired FBi Agent I would be saddened to see the demise of the agency. There’s got to be a way for the FBI to be removed from the ability to influence elections. Perhaps a DOJ-OIG Ethnics Division which is fed cases from all Federal agencies would be a better path. The imprimatur that a person running for high elected office is immunized from being indicted is laughable.

#6 /\ There’s got to be a way for the FBI to be removed from the ability to influence elections.

See #2 above.

No interruptions. No exceptions. Place SA Lon Horiuchi, Waco fire, 9/11 Tower Jumpers, Whitey Bulger, Tsarnaev Bros, Nidal Hasan, General Mike Flynn, and Carter Page photos here. Have a nice fok'n day.

#7 Trump will have a lot more "flexibility" after the election.

#9 I know you honor Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity my friend and colleague, but more recent folks in the Bureau increasingly seem to think they are just words on a wall. You have to believe it and live it, not just say it!

#10 Former FBI? Welcome to my world. You need to give up on the idea that the agency you knew is the agency that now exists. I know, I saw it happen in the Intelligence Community. I have been saying for a decade that the CIA needs to be dismantled, much of it parceled out to other agencies, and then reconstituted with clearly defined roles and oversight. Add the NSA/CSS to that list as well. DIA not so bad, but could use a look. NGA and NRO and similar agencies are just technical agencies, no real politics to what they do.

But like the CIA, the FBI is now showing rotting from the inside that the politicization of the leadership under Bush did, which accelerated even harder to the left under Obama.

Its past repair. You're talking about scraping barnacles on a ship with a rotted keel, transom, and hull planking.

Time to rip it apart and rebuild it with a better eye towards preventing this sort of accumulation power that invites corruption.

#11 /\ Amen, and amen. Concur with 'Silver Bullet' (DIA) comment as well.
