The new FBI director, Christopher Wray, is reorganizing some of the top leaders at the agency as he forms his own team of senior advisers, The Washington Post reported. It is common for a new director to reorganize when taking charge of an agency.

But according to the New York Times, Wray is also under pressure from President Trump to reassign Comey loyalists within the agency.

  1. This might sound like mindless complaining, but I intend this to be a very serious question and I apologize in advance for the frustration coming through:

    Why the hell is trump still in office?


    What is going on in this country that the world has to cringe in horror at virtually everything he does and says and we sit idly by spending money and making jokes about it? It’s so bad that we cringe at the mere thought of what he might do next. This is insanity and I’m not using that word haphazardly. He needs to be impeached now.

    There are intelligent, caring people in every state in the United States. People should contact every member of Congress to request they publicly support impeachment. Any member who does not do this should be questioned incessantly by her/his constituents and be forced to publicly state a legitimate reason for protecting someone who has undoubtedly committed more than enough crimes while in office to warrant impeachment. (Obstruction of justice, alone, should be enough). We should not stand for having such a despicable parasite “leading” us. Don’t people think about how history will look upon us in the future? What will trump supporters say to their children and grandchildren when asked how they could believe this man was worthy of being president of a nation?

    • It is a very serious question, but the answer is not simple. It involves politics, business, religion, sociology, human nature, technological advances, and a host of other factors which have transpired since the Reagan revolution. The shortest answer to why Trump is still in office is that Republicans hold the White House, both house of Congress, and the Supreme Court.

      • I understand the political obstacles, but I’m talking about “We the people” now. People who wave flags and supposedly admire the constitution need to say enough is enough. If the people of this country are going to continue writing and talking about the horrendous situation we’re in as a nation and refuse to take action we might as well forget about ever improving our situation. The writing we do to educate people is intended ultimately to inspire – otherwise we’re wasting our time. I know it’s a lot of work and a daunting task, but if enough of us stand up we can make changes. We tell each other amazing inspirational quotes about overcoming adversity and fighting for truth, but we seem to expect others to do it for us.

        “Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching.” – Mandy Hale

        Sounds great, but how many of us truly take that to heart?

        Impeaching trump shouldn’t actually be that difficult. Republicans are in control, but we know that most of them detest him and consider him a buffoon so if we can’t get him out of office, what can we accomplish? There’s so much more to do that will be more difficult.

        “Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering and struggle; the tireless exertions and the passionate concern of dedicated individuals.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

        The armchair activists need to care enough about the least fortunate in society as well as our children and future generations to get up and do something. Again, I’m sorry to complain so bitterly, but I believe the time is now.

        “The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and the cruelty by the bad people, but the silence over that by the good people.” Martin Luther King Jr.

        • I couldn’t agree more, but I don’t know what else to do. In the 60s and 70s, I protested against the Vietnam War, protested against racial discrimination, and advocated for women’s rights. In the 80s, I spoke out vociferously against conservative policies and religious attacks on the Separation of Church and State. In the 90s and 00s, I actively supported candidates who reflected my progressive philosophy, In 2011, I twice marched with Occupy Wall Street; and, have blogged ever since to further those aims.

          Still, here we are today. Apathy, disillusionment, and civic disengagement are worse than ever. Things are getting much, much worse, and at the very time when we need the center-left to rise up in unison, the opposite is happening.

          I’m old and worn-out after decades of fighting. If the younger generations really want anything resembling a good life, then the fight is theirs. I did my part. Will they?

        • Sad to say, but I doubt it. Oh sure, there will be a segment that’s politically-minded and will be active, but overall, it seems today’s youth are too busy FB-ing and Twitter-ing with friends to even have a clue on what’s happening within our nation, let alone the world.

          Also, when there is strong support for a candidate and they lose, many people become disheartened and question whether it’s worth it to try again in the future.

          There’s no getting around it. tRumpsky said what many people wanted to hear and that was all that was needed. No particular “push” was required (altho’, as recent events have shown … ) other than him repeating himself again and again and again in his rallies. And now that he sits in the Oval Office, he has more than enough control to carry out his “promises” (along with his vendettas).

          IMO, at this point, all we can hope for is the Justice Democrats group is able to create some excitement, the Democratic Party gets their sh__ together, and there are enough people feeling the true effects of the orange-haired orangutan that they’re willing to look outside their party. Otherwise … well, I dread to think.
