How to Become a Bounty Hunter

President Obama’s Hunt for New FBI Director Leads to Short List of Likely Candidates

Steve Neavling 

The search for a new FBI director is heating up.

Looking to replace Robert Mueller, whose term has expired, the White House has begun vetting candidates and may be down to a short list of potential successors, NPR reports.

NPR reported that the Obama administration approached Judge Merrick Garland, a federal appeals court judge in Washington D.C., but he didn’t want the job.

That leaves the White House with a short list of candidates, NPR reported, citing anonymous sources.

Among them are Lisa Monaco, a federal prosecutor; Jim Comey, a former U.S. attorney in New York City; and David Kris, a longtime Justice Department lawyer, NPR wrote.

Above all, diversity. No W/M need apply.

No FBI agent is even being mentioned because all the policy making deputies under III were draftees from DOJ. Mueller didn’t groom any agent to follow him but sure did groom many DoJ appointees for further higher positions.

I don’t think the prosecution of Martha Stewart was worth it and would never been considered but for her celebrity status. And the entire Valerie Plame soap opera was a waste of tens of millions of $$$. It did garner mucho publicity for Fitzgerald and Comey
who enjoyed the spotlight. How many press conferences did Fitzy convene ?
