So, I just came across this story that shows the White House short list for new FBI Director. I'm curious who the folks of ATS would like off this list.. Personally, I would love to see Trey Gowdy as the new acting FBI Director, so I'm happy to see his name on this list..

Who would you like to see?

According to the White House official, the candidates include:

Ray Kelly, the former and longest-serving New York City police commissioner
Mike Rogers, former House Intelligence Committee chairman and former FBI agent
Former Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas
Paul Abbate, executive assistant director for the Criminal, Cyber, Response and Services Branch
Associate Judge of New York Court of Appeals Mike Garcia
Mayor of Colorado Springs John Suthers
Former federal appellate court Judge Michael Luttig, now executive vice president of Boeing
Larry Thompson, former deputy attorney general under President George W. Bush
Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe

Well he was the only one who managed to impress me during the Comey hearings. He was the only one who asked the right questions and was genuinely interested in the truth.

Ray Kelly would fit nicely with this administrations level of obnoxiousness.

Comey flip flopped too much and got way too political over just doing his job..

After what happened to Comey, I don't think Trump wants a FBI director, he want's a shill to promote and protect his BS.

Loyalty....?

Trump threatened Comey in a tweet....Trump just screwed the pooch....! You just don't ***k with the cops.

No matter who Trump appoints, the rank and file have a data base full of Trumps connection to the Ruskies.

That's why Comey was fired.

Similar to what Hillary and Obama had with Loretta Lynch and the other department heads? I think its reasonable to put people in positions that you're able to work with, verse always working against you.. it makes sense to me, but I'm sure it will be spun in a way that makes Trump look bad.. We have checks and balances for a reason and three branches of government, if Trump wants "his" people in these key positions he should be allowed to

Did you think the same thing about Obamas pick?

No matter who Trump appoints, his WH is in total chaos, leaking like hell and the GOP now see's how crazy Trump has become.

This is the most fun I've had in years.

He also stepped outside his boundaries in being the decision maker that seemed to have political implications on both sides of the aisle when the decision should have been much more black and white based on the law. He takes heat for the whole email event as he got very vocal without willing to take the case past his vocalization of it, so why even say anything in the first place, and then it seems he is trying to placate the left with a good amount of vocalization about a Russia influencing the election investigation when there isn't much to go on still. As much of these cases go, if they don't have enough now there just isn't anything to it.

Well at least that is what the media wants us to believe and what the left prays for...lol I love the huge up roar from the left in the recent past to remove him, and now the huge up roar from them over his removal. Nothing can be simple it seems in the media too since simple is boring. It just can't be that Trump has finally lost all faith in him from internal communications, now could it....

My information didn't come from the leftwing media. I worked for the GOP during campaign and still have many friends and contacts in the beltway. It's common knowledge what is happening in the WH by the RNC. I'm just telling you what they tell me....

I would love to see Sheriff David Clarke on that list.

He's a true badass and does not suffer fools gladly.

Pretty soon he's going to start setting people on fire until Sir Jamie punches him in the dick. I wonder if the Iron Bank of Bravos will come collect payment for all their help.

Oh wait, we're watching The Apprentice, not Game of Thrones. Easy mistake, lately.
