Trump Implicates his Hand-Picked FBI Director in Democratic Coup

When Donald Trump famously fired Jim Comey as FBI Director, he chose to install Christopher Wray in his place. Wray had previously served as the Assistant Attorney General under previous President, George W. Bush.

Wray has earned the ire of the President by agreeing with the intelligence assessment that Russia meddled in the 2016 election. On Sunday night, Trump tweeted that his own nominee, Wray is a toady and the FBI has no leadership.

The president wrote, “Just another abuse of power in a long series of abuses of power by the Democrats that began during the Obama Administration, continued through the Mueller FBI operation, & now the baton has been passed to Jerry Nadler to continue to abuse power to harass President Trump.”

He then implicated his FBI Director in the apparent scheme, “and the Democrat National Committee-The Democrat Party apparatus-has been caught using donor Dollars to Collude with Russian Intelligence to attack a domestic political opponent (me). The FBI has no leadership. The Director is protecting the same gang…..that tried to….overthrow the president through and illegal coup.”

Many expect that Trump will soon fire the pragmatic FBI Director. Former Federal Prosecutor, Elliot Williams, said of Wray, “It’s just a matter of time before he’s out, too. It seems that individuals in the Justice Department at the highest levels who seem to state the facts and the law as they exist seem to not do well, as we saw with Jeff Sessions and on down, the White House counsel as well.”
