POTUS Roasts Christopher Wray for Letting ‘Dirty Cops' Skate over FISA Abuse
BLUF:
[Red State] While the report was not unsurprising once we knew who was leading the investigation, the response of FBI Director Christopher Wray was sickening. He went along with the whitewash, promised to create a new film to teach, presumably, senior FBI officials how to better spy on a presidential campaign with with leaving a paper trail, and, though failing to apologize to Carter Page, he said Carter Page’s case would be a case study used to improve the process.

It is pretty clear at this juncture that Wray is part of the problem and not part of the solution. He was not bound by any finding or recommendation in the FISC inquiry. His decision to protect people who deliberately broke the law because they thought they had political cover is indefensible. There were a lot of reasons why he should have been fired, this is reason why he must be fired.
Emphasis added.

Quite obvious to anyone following these sordid events for what, two, three years now ?

#1 My guess is, once the Orange Man is vindicated by the Senate impeach trial, this crooked SOB will be looking for new employment.

#3 Last inauguration, Trump skipped the gala events. When he does so in January 2021, he should do this:

Executive order: The Central Intelligence Agency is hereby dissolved. No person currently or previously working for CIA will be eligible to work in any government capacity, directly or as a contractor at any point going forward. This prohibition will include running for elective office.

Executive order: The Federal Bureau of Investigation is hereby dissolved. No person currently or previously working for FBI will be eligible to work in any government capacity, directly or as a contractor at any point going forward. This prohibition will include running for elective office or working for any non federal law enforcement agency or contractor.

Executive order: The Department of Homeland Security is hereby dissolved. No person currently or previously working for DHC will be eligible to work in any government capacity, directly or as a contractor at any point going forward. This prohibition will include running for elective office or working for any non federal law enforcement agency or contractor.

#7 What will replace them, MM?

Umm. What do we replace cancer with. More tooth decay? Additional bad breath? Cheaper plastic Chinese lawn chairs?

Maybe try honest cops and non political judges. Unicorn thinking, I know. I know...

#9 But you need nationwide law enforcement. Intelligence agencies, maybe you can get away with several: competing & supervising each other.

#10 The CIA seems to back the wrong horse about 50% of the time. We could pick what to do or not do on the results of high school football game coin flips every Friday night and do no worse.

At this point you really are going to argue the FBI does more good than bad?

Homeland Security was a bad idea from the get go.

#11 Wray has been a disappointment. The house is on fire and he is p!ssing on the fire to deal with it.

#12 Not buying the idea he's simply incompetent. And not sorry for seeing it that way...

#13 #4 What will replace them, MM?

US Marshals and the DIA.

#14 According to a friend of mine who is a retired FBI special agent, the problem is not in the rank and file of the agents. It is in the leadership.

#19 11 Wray has been a disappointment.

I can't say he's a disappointment to me, as I never expected him to be anything but another swamp thing.
