President Donnie John Trump is now interviewing for a new FBI Director after he canned previous Top Cop James Comey earlier this week. Many sources say Texas Senator John Cornyn is the front runner for the position.
So let's see....Sen. Cornyn is tall, well groomed, distinguished looking, very white....and tall, and.....umm....is not currently under indictment. That pretty much sums him up. But he's also NOT just your average, run-of-the-mill Senator. He's the (Republican) Senate Majority Whip, second-in-command only to Mitch McConnell, which by definition means he's HIGHLY PARTISAN. Mitch says "jump", Cornie says "how high?" He loyally does what he's told. That's how you get to an upper leadership position in either party.
Didn't The Donald supposedly ask James Comey for his loyalty over dinner one evening, and when Comey sidestepped the question, was shortly thereafter fired? We know in his business dealings President Trump put a high premium on loyalty, which isn't an unreasonable thing to expect in a business setting. But an FBI Director should show allegiance to the Constitution, not to the POTUS or any other individual.
Right now President Trump really, REALLY needs an FBI Director who will reign in the police dogs who are hot after him.
Having watched my state's Senator in action for some time now, I'm thinking Mr. Cornyn just might be the
We (The People), however, deserve better. We deserve an FBI Director who is a seasoned federal prosecutor, a high-level law enforcement officer, or an experienced intelligence guy, someone not in the gravity field of either political party. Is this asking too much? Please, no more contaminated political hacks.
