Posted on 01/12/2020 6:33:49 AM PST by EyesOfTX
This guy has got to go. Some folks just need firing, and FBI Director Christopher Wray is the poster child for that reality. The FBI was a raging dumpster fire under James Comey, and nothing has changed under the worthless apparatchik who was appointed by President Trump on the advice of Rod Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions to succeed him.
If anything, Wray appears to want to just keep stoking the flames of that dumpster fire to higher levels, which he managed to succeed at doing with two moves late this past week.
First, Wray filed an inexcusable response to the December demand by lead FISA Court judge Rosemary Collyer (who has since resigned) that the FBI take action to prevent future abuses of the FISA warrant process. Collyers letter was issued in reaction to the December 11 report by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed massive wrongdoing by higher-ups in the Comey-era FBI in their efforts to spy on the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team and Trump Administration.
Wrays proposed solution to the blatant abuse of process by myriad FBI officials is to wait for it mandate more training. Yeah, just what youd expect from a useless bureaucrat who would be more at home in some corporate Human Resources department than in leading what is supposed to be the nations premier law enforcement agency.
Making matters worse, the letter sent to the FISA Court on Friday was signed by Wray and wait for it again utterly corrupt FBI lawyer Dana Boente, who actually signed one of the four FISA applications that was used to facilitate the Comey FBIs spying operation. You seriously cannot make this stuff up:
As if that werent despicable and indefensible enough, Wray compounded this insult to basic public integrity by appointing former assistant attorney general for national security David S. Kris to oversee the FBIs fancy new training program. Kris, if anything, is even more corrupt than Boente, a guy with Spygate basically tatooed on his forehead.
This is a guy who, in addition to being a noted Obama loyalist, is also associated with the scumbags at Lawfare, the group that has provide the contract lawyers who have planned, managed and driven the Schiff/Pelosi/Nadler impeachment scam.
As reported by the Daily Caller:
Kris was also among the many pundits dismissive of Republican allegations that the FBI mishandled information in the Steele dossier. One of Kriss main targets was Nunes, a California Republican who relentlessly pursued information from the FBI about the Trump-Russia probe.
In his March 1, 2018, essay at Lawfare, Kris wholeheartedly defended the FBIs actions in the Trump-Russia probe, while criticizing Nunes over a memo he released Feb. 2, 2018, laying out a list of alleged problems with the FBIs rationale to surveil Page.
Kris asserted that Nunes falsely accused the FBI of deceiving the FISA Court. He also questioned whether Nunes and other Republicans would face any consequences for their dishonesty.
The Nunes memo was dishonest. And if it is allowed to stand, we risk significant collateral damage to essential elements of our democracy, wrote Kris, who is now a consultant at Culper Partners and frequent guest on MSNBC.
Kris went as far as entertaining the possibility, first proposed by Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe, that Nunes might be prosecuted for obstruction of justice.
Kris also wrote that the memos central claim that the FBI misled the FISC about Christopher Steele was not true.
But, in a transparently fake move designed to justify receiving his assignment from Wray, Kris has had a sudden fake change of heart:
Kris has acknowledged since the release of the IG report that the FBI committed some significant and serious errors in its Carter Page FISA applications. He also conceded in a Lawfare essay published Dec. 23, 2o19, that Nuness assertion that the FBI engaged in irregular behavior was correct.
This is a blatant middle finger by Wray to President Trump, and the President understands that, as evidenced by this tweet issued on Saturday:
Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump FBI Director apologizes for FISA Errors (of which there were far to many to be a coincidence!). @FoxNews Chris, what about all of the lives that were ruined because of the so-called errors? Are these dirty cops going to pay a big price for the fraud they committed?
124K 7:38 AM - Jan 11, 2020 Twitter Ads info and privacy 49K people are talking about this The President well knows that no FBI dirty cops will pay any real price so long as Christopher Wray remains ensconced as the FBI Director. Wray not only has no intention at all of putting out the agencys raging dumpster fire, he is in fact dedicated to stoking its flames.
The only solution here is for the President to fire the man. Once this impeachment nonsense has been dealt with in the Senate, doing that needs to be Job 1 at the White House.
That is all.
Fire him. If McConnell wont agree to replacement then leave it to acting until McConnell agrees. Cant be worse.
Great educational article. Thanks.
Lots of agencies in the CRIMINAL/BUREAUCRATIC STATE. We can’t afford them all, especially the ones working against US A.
Barr is the definition of corruption.
Wray to mandate more power point lessons on abuse of power. What a joke. These people who visit holocaust memorials as education only pay lip service.
Be afraid, be very afraid, we have Nazis in power who think they are innocent as lamb.
It's nearing time to expose McConnell as the MAGA road bump that he is. Screw all these useless politicians.
President Trump was new to the office and the appointment of Wray was a mistake.

Obamas Assistant Attorney General Tells Senate: Terrorists Captured on Battlefield Have Constitutional Rights SNIPPET: Does that infer that these individuals have constitutional rights? McCain asked Kris.
Ah, yes, Kris answered.
What are those constitutional rights of people who are not citizens of the United States of America, who were captured on a battlefield committing acts of war against the United States? McCain asked.
Our analysis, Senator, is that the due process clause applies to military commissions and imposes a constitutional floor on the procedures that the government sets on such commissions Kris said.
So you are saying that these...
So Kris thinks terrorists have more rights, than say, Flynn, or Manafort.
Job 1 after the fake impeachment trial should be to fire Wray. We need a Director with some testosterone, not some corporate C-Suite sissy who would make Romney happy.
Do you think Obama left any of those behind?
Yes he must wait until after the impeachment circus has left town. Then fire that rat hack Wray. I think Trump was planning after November but it can’t wait he has to go now. If Mitch won’t confirm someone then Trump can use an interim who will have the authority to fumigate the FBI.
The end result is the same, but it was the FISC judge and not Wray who appointed Kris according to the Daily Caller..
Agree...don’t need Collins, Murkowski and Romney blessing for an acting. Put a REAL person in there.
Roberts appointed the judge who appointed Kris.
The rot starts at the top.
Ag Barr is happy with Wray.
The swamp runs DEEP.
Wheels in motion.
He should have had his ass booted the second after that outrageous Roger Stone performance arrest for CNN. What the hell was that? The guy brings seemingly half the military and alerts CNN so he can arrest Stone in the middle of the night in his pajamas.
Every time I hear “dumpster fire” I think of that goofball that tried to run for Senate somewhere that sounds like he had a stroke.
Yeah.he’s a piece of work. He should be booted just for his chit eating grin.
....and Trump has NOT fired this mofo yet, why?!
