The President of any corporation, or senior manager will tell you one of the more difficult parts of their job, and certainly uncomfortable is cleaning the outhouse – AKA firing non-performing employees.
The high-tech FBI you see on TV is all bullshit. There is literally little to anything true about the FBI’s technical prowess, or even utilizing technology of this century. It is one of the reasons hackers, international terrorists, and Wall Street Bankers can commit financial crimes almost with impunity. The FBI was quite literally the last Federal Agency to find out mainframe technology was dead. 15 years after the fact. The FBI had to pay an Israeli company $3 million to hack an iPhone. Something just about any “Ankle Biter” (a slang term for tweenies learning hacking) could/would do for $50.
Obama hiring a Republican to do a man’s job was a failure from the get-go.
One of the things that truly frustrates me about Obama’s Presidency, and makes me angry is his inability to chop Republican dead wood. Remember how fast he fired Shirley Sherrod?
Right about now, were I President, Bill Comey – and his entire Senior Staff would be frogmarched out of the FBI Building in handcuffs. As an executive, whether CEO, President, or VP – if someone forces you to pull the trigger though bad action, criminality, or talking out of school…You don’t aim for the foot.
No – you don’t necessarily fire a person for an honest screw up. But if they knowingly break the law, as Comey and his staff have done – you drop the Axe.
Get some cajones, Obama.
Rudy Giuliani is now openly boasting that the Trump campaign got advance notice of James Comey’s letter
The Trump campaign isn’t even bothering to hide its ties to the FBI at this point
