Besides Christie in his past, Wray's law firm represents oil/energy int'l comps who work with Rosneft.
pdf source

Russia, Rosneft. Trump, Rosneft. Qatar, Rosneft.
Russia false news Qatar. Saudi Arabia, Qatar.
Rosneft should come up in govt investigations of Trump/etal-Russia.

My brain hurts, too.

Interesting.


King & Spalding LLP advises on Russian and foreign banking matters, and frequently handles major financings across Russia


and (I don't have a subscription, but interesting summary)


US law firm King & Spalding LLC has won a tender to become a consultant of Russian blacklisted Rosneft on its future LNG projects, according to Russian press citing the materials of the state-controlled oil major.

Ok, this sums up what I was thinking re connections (haha left out Steele Dossier). Questions need to be asked IF Wray's nomination gets to Congress.

Jeez, more Russian connections with this administration than at Khrushchev family gathering!

I dare-say he unofficially has already "accepted the nomination".

The rest, as they say, is history.



After he signed a "loyalty decree" to Trump, no doubt.

Rightly so.
Unless Trump is the subject of an investigation by the FBI, being loyal to the people's elected leader seems sensible.

I must say, Trump announcing this just before Comey is due to testify is funny.
Comey now has a face to associate with his old job.


Who knows, it may just be the face of the person that investigates Comey's behaviour... after all his conversations with the President were confidential and he took notes and spread them around to his friends outside the FBI.. oops.

Any public official, especially one in the seat of the FBI, should be loyal to the people of the United States, not the President.

I'm not politically savvy enough to inject myself into this conversation but one thing you said gave me a thought.



We had eight years of how many threads a day bitching about Obama


Now before I reveal said thought, I just want to point out that I know the ATS search function is not at all a reliable source for statistics, let alone searching for stuff, but the results of my extensive research into this matter (typing 2 names into search box) are albeit interesting so I'll post my findings even with the risk of return fire being highly likely.

ATS Search Function Study (highly credible I tell you)

Search 1: Obama- 139,000 results (we'll call this "O")

Search 2: Trump- 155,000 results (we'll call this "T")

Now using my mathematical ability, I made the following calculations based on loose estimations of timelines.

Obama was Pres from 2008-2016 and announced his candidacy on Feb 10th 2007.
Since that date, 3771 days have passed (we'll call this OD)
Trump has been president from January 2017 till present and announced his candidacy on June 16th 2015
Since that date, 723 days have passed (we'll call this TD)

Now obviously every thread over the course, wasn't created in opposition to each of these Presidents but we can all undoubtably agree that the "bitching" you referred to happened in every single thread about either Obama or Trump. I mean that's a given when it comes to yanks and politics, right?

On average, according to the criteria I stated above I used following equations.

O or T being the total results for each candidate
OD or TD being the days since candidacy announcement.

O / OD = 36.9 search results per day
T / TD = 214.4 search results per day

Now lets say that half of each result was pro and half anti.

Obama was therefore bitched about 18.5 times per day.
Trump was bitched about 107.2 times per day.
Trump has been bitched about 579% more than Obama.



579%


579%


579%



In light of my results following my highly credible research I pose but 1 question....

Who's bitching about who?

Nice strawman. Can we look at the guy before you tell us how we feel about him?


EXACTLY, looked into this thread as I don't know the guy from Adam perse, and within the first paragraph it became pretty obvious the op straw manned it. Sheesh thanks for nothing man

Here is a good example of the fakery CNN use to drive propaganda.

Their politics home page headline today:

"FBI Director nominee removed reference to case involving Russian government from law firm bio"

Russia! OMG... but wait

The case was actually on behalf of an American citizen fighting a false allegation from the Russian govt... oh and he updated his bio in January.


Oh well, they got an ambiguous Russia reference in the headline to make it seem nefarious. The propaganda continues. I am sure it won't be long before the first of several numpties start the Russian spy accusations against the new nominee for the FBI Directorship...no doubt the innuendo will be part of the confirmation hearing.

Don't know anything about the man, other than he's a (((shudder))) lawyer.

Seems to me that the nations top cop ought to perhaps be a **gasp** cop. Maybe?

Attorney General a lawyer? Absolutely. Makes perfect sense.

FBI Director? A cop. Have lawyers working for him, sure, but he or she should be a cop. Think like a cop, work like a cop...
