His resignation and a purge of the Giuliani wing of the FBI should start on Wednesday.
James E Powell
Right, but can you undo a solid week of negative press/media? No, you cannot.
The next letter needs to be his resignation. Wednesday morning, 3AM.
Co-signed. Maybe replace the FBI with the Keystone Kops for improve professionalism.
To the extent there are any stragglers, maybe this will help bring them out on Tuesday. And maybe depress Trump turnout just a tad.
If we’re really lucky, Trump will go unhinged again tomorrow and put the stake into his own heart.

Hey I Bigfooted you for a change!
I’m kind of shocked that he didn’t hold onto this for another two days…
She got to him!
This the proof we needed of her corruption!!1
Wake up morans!
Before they fire him, Dems should drag his ass before committee hearings to explain the leaks. If they win Senate of course.
But.. But.. But.. Hilary is SATAN! in a pantsuit! She is Baddddd!
OT: This is apparently a real tweet from Philly’s mayor.
Hillary’s pantsuited thugs have gotten to Comey!
So almost universal condemnation had some effect, because I expected Comey to keep this dangling until after Tuesday too.
I hope he’s gone by Friday.
Did you see Al Franken on CNN? He said as a member of the Judiciary Committee, he is confident there will be hearings into Comey’s role in this election and an investigation of “rogue elements” of the FBI who talked to Giuliani. He said it’s not the FBI’s role to interfere with elections and that as director, Comey should have been able to hold the agency to its mission and needs to explain the lapse. Al is on the fucking case!
Translation: “I’m sorry, Madam President, please don’t fire me.”
@Betty Cracker: GOOD. He’s Al Franken and they’re not.
@gf120581: “Too bad; see you later, fucker.” (I hope).
James E Powell
Sorry if I’m getting ahead of things, but if the Dems take the senate, what committee would Al Franken chair?
@Betty Cracker: Awesome. One more reason to ensure that we control the Senate.
@James E Powell: All of them, Katie!
@James E Powell: Whichever one he wants. He makes me proud to be a Democrat every time I hear him speak.
It was always about Economic Anxiety.
Problem is the letter will get lost in all of the ‘day before election’ news coverage.
On a somewhat related topic there are a couple of items on Twitter that ‘Old Little hands’ staff has taken away his twitter account. Seems that can’t trust him on Twitter but not to worry the nuclear codes are in good hands (Melania’s maybe or Val;id’s?)
Seeing the word “Honorable” before “Jason Chaffetz” in the letter is just nauseating.
I don’t think resignation is enough, he should be fired.
Over on KOS ‘
What a bunch of degenerates. The source is the British Daily Mail so it’s validity may be open to question.
@D58826: A tabloid and Steve King? Yeah, I call BS.
Besides, Comey’s letter just kicked the chair out from beneath them.
@James E Powell: Well, based on his current assignments and minority seniority:
Judiciary subcommittee on Privacy, Technology, and the Law
Health, Education, Labor and Pensions subcommittee on Employment and Workplace Safety
@D58826: Totally believable story, but the Daily Mail is crap. I hope it’s true, to be honest, because I don’t want this REAL scandal to get swept under the rug.
@Betty Cracker: It will only happen, in a serious way, if Dems control the Senate. Looking about 75% likely right now.
I wonder how many undecideds could even tell you what the July “conclusion” was. A lot of them probably think it was an indictment.
@GrandJury: I’ll take those odds over the Senatortoise from Kentucky’s chances of keeping his gavel.
Unbelievable comments on Chaffetz’s tweet.
Also, the Steelers just committed the most hilarious whiffed kickoff.
James E Powell
I can only imagine Cole’s wailing and gnashing of teeth.
The FBI director seems to be under the impression his boss is a dung beetle from Utah.
His azz needs to be fired ???
I want to see Giuliani questioned under oath and then investigated up and down til the cows come home.
There needs to be a lot of security clearance review over there at the FBI.
@James E Powell:
Why wait so long? This election will be over by 11:30 pm EDT Tuesday night, possibly by 10:30 pm.
This should be a lyric in a Broadway musical.
Smedley Darlington Prunebanks (Formerly Mumphrey, et al.)
@D58826: I don’t know. I think an awful lot of people will be hammering this awfully hard. I’m sorry it didn’t come a week ago, but I’ll take what I can get.
What do we make of replacing the head of FBI’s NY office?
