Who Should Replace James Comey At The FBI?

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.
