Unforced errors

He chose…poorly.

House GOP leadership is now convinced FBI Director Christopher Wray is not cooperating with Bill Barr and John Durham’s investigation into the origins of Spygate.

According to investigative reporter Paul Sperry, GOP Reps believe Wray is part of the cover-up of Spygate after burying documents and refusing to make people available for interviews.
 
SPERRY: House GOP leadership has soured on Comey replacement Wray. They r now convinced Wray’s not part of the FBI cleanup & not cooperating w AG Barr & is in fact part of the cover-up of #SpyGate scandal after burying documents & refusing to make people available for interview

Swamp creature FBI Director Wray and FBI brass have yet to condemn the Obama administration spying on the opposition party during the 2016 election.

Last month Wray told the Senate Appropriations Committee that Bill Barr’s use of the word “spying” to describe the spying on the Trump campaign and administration was “not the term I would use.

Wray also told the committee he has no evidence the Obama administration was spying on Trump.

President Trump has had enough.

I should fucking well hope so. I should also hope he’s finally learned the long-overdue lesson about what appointing Obama stay-behinds and Deep State crawly things to high administration positions will get him. He’s done way too much of that already, and it’s never failed yet to bite him in the ass. As Bill puts it:

And right here is a perfect example of Trump’s oft-repeated error of shooting himself in the foot when it comes to his appointments.

FBI Director Wray was appointed to the position by President Donald Trump.

Worse, he did so after his terrible experience with FBI Director Comey, which should have led him to take extra care in choosing with whom to replace Comey. PB had it nailed early on.  I didn’t post much on it, because I mistakenly assumed Trump knew what he was doing with the appointment. But he didn’t. And so here we are.

Now, I know the Local Fan Club will tell me how Donald had no choice, or there was no way to know, or any of a host of excuses for this, but the fact remains: Wray had a track record, it was indicative, and it was ignored. And so now we have Trump in the weird position of having appointed Wray to a ten year position which was confirmed by Congress, being faced with the prospect of firing his own guy (who will be cheered on as a hero of the Resistance by all the usual suspects, and who will claim that any such firing would be obstruction of justice worthy of immediate impeachment).

Now, I don’t necessarily fear impeachment, but I think it is possible to be a bit too blithe about it. Once something like that is set in train, nobody really knows how it might turn out, and I’m not thrilled about taking too many chances with it.

I do understand that the pool of actual conservatives able and willing to run a large department like the FBI is a bit thin on the ground, but there are hazards to going back to the same corrupt Deep State well over and over again.

There certainly are. You made much of your intention to “hire the best people” during your campaign, Mr President. These Swamp shitweasels are NOT them. And, with all due respect, allowing them to continue festering in place is NOT what the American people hired you to do.

  1. In defense of Trump’s appointment of Wray, I’m sure he relied on Sessions’ recommendation in making that pick, Sessions being another poor pick (or maybe a deep state plant). I’m NOT saying that Trump’s judgement here was sound, but being an outsider to DC, how is he to know who’s not a shitweasel? One could make the argument that he should have appointed anyone other than those recommended to him. However, you have to ask yourself, would those kinds of people have been confirmed by the Senate and would an outsider, appointed to FBI Director, been effective or even have a clue to “where the bodies are buried”?

  2. Or perhaps he knew/expected this would happen. Watching Wray wiggle and watching what he did may have just led to more info to help squash more critters.

    Or he did indeed choose poorly. Only time will tell.

  3. He picked Wray because he was “suggested” to him by the worthless McCain. None of the Usual Senate RINOs at the time would vote for anyone else. While the nomination was a bad one, it was driven by sad necessity. More recent picks, however, like the protege-of-Brennan Gina Haspel at CIA and the ghastly MacAleenan at Homeland Security are true personnel blunders.

    I do not know who is selecting these leftist twerps for promotion, or why said person is still employed, but somebody needs to be fired.

  4. Bill Quick is a douchebag and a nevertrump hypocrite. I’ve never seen a bigger moron than Bill.

    1. Bill, Nevertrump? Hahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha…

      Wow thanks I needed a laugh.

      He doesn’t kiss Trump’s backside anymore than I do or Mike does. And absolutely he is frustrated with all that Trump has not been able to do, especially the things he hasn’t gotten done because Trump shot his own foot off by trusting bad advice from libtards like his son-in-law.

      But he was practically the first ONLYTrump guy out there. And I’m pretty sure he still considers Trump by far the best of a pathetic lot. Unfortunately, clearing the bar of the GOPe clown-car (or any dumbocrap in the last 50+ years) is not really that high a bar to clear. Trump clears it. But not by anywhere near as much as I or Bill might wish.

      We all have our jackass moments including myself him and Trump, but Bill being nevertrump? (Or moron?) Not in the slightest.

      1. Me and Bill both declared for Trump right about when he took the Elevator Ride Of Destiny, and I’m still rather proud of correctly predicting a Trump victory not long after. I also said all along that Trump ain’t perfect, I wouldn’t agree with him on everything, and nobody should expect any different. Anybody who thought Trump was somehow going to correct all of America’s ills all by his lonesome, in one term, is a fool.
