FBI Director Who?
Have you been reading the news? Trump is not a president we can entrust with sensitive intelligence let alone with the appointment of a new FBI director. It's been reported that AG Sessions and Deputy AG Rosenstein have interviewed 8 candidates, with no further interviews scheduled.
Trump has been urged to not make a political appointment of the FBI director. Past candidates historically have had the unanimous support of both parties, with only one dissenting vote ever. This is because the director of the FBI is not a political post, and should be someone who does not have a partisan background. Not to mention someone who will continue to carry out the Russia investigation to it's fullest.
Keep a close watch on Thursday, when Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein is set to brief the Senate on the details of former FBI Director Comey's firing. Though this briefing is classified, the Trump administration loves a good media distraction, and we may just get one on Thursday with an FBI appointment.
