This Monday, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) has released a statement saying he is “not the right person” to replace the recently-fired FBI Director James Comey, despite Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who is the head of the Justice Department, speaking with him about the position.
Gowdy noted that he greatly appreciated the A.G. speaking with him and respecting his decision, and he added that he wishes him wisdom as he interviews the other potential candidates.
Gowdy added that during his talk, he “shared with him two things: (1) the qualities I believe are indispensable for our next FBI Director to possess, and (2) my firm conviction that I would not be the right person,” Gowdy earlier this Monday.
Comey’s firing sure did shock the political world last week, provoking fiery responses from idiot hypocritical liberals. But sadly, now that Trey Gowdy is out of the picture, a dozen more potential candidates remain in the game.
In fact, the list of potential candidates is being worked on so hard right now, that President Trump stated that Comey’s successor is “possible” before he leaves for an overseas trip this Friday.
“We can make a fast decision,” he said aboard Air Force One. “I think the process is going to go quickly. Almost all of them are very well known.”
This weekend, on Saturday, candidates for the position of FBI Director started pouring in at the Justice Department for interviews with Sessions as well as his deputy Rod Rosenstein. The position requires Senate confirmation, and several more candidates are expected to meet with Rosenstein and Sessions this week.
