My candidate to replace James Comey at the FBI would be someone within the agency who is not Andy McCabe. The Hillary pardon — and that is what the non-indictment was — evidently tore the agency in part.
Some agents resent giving her a pass. Some agents resent the October Surprise in which Comey, either by choice or stupidity, wrote a letter to Congress that re-opened the case.
Some agents also liked Comey. He was a good boss who made a helluva mistake last July.
Need I remind readers that all speculation about Christie, etc., is in a media that told us Giuliani was a lock for secretary of state, and Christie would be the attorney general.
Another possibility is someone from his list of 21 Supreme Court nominees. I would be fine with any of them.
Trump knows he needs to heal the FBI. Someone flashy will not do that. FBI agents are lawyers who would respect a judge. Perhaps that ultimately is the answer.
