‘Be prepared to walk out’: Ex-FBI agents say Chris Wray must be ready to resign over Nunes memo

Published

on

Former FBI agents say that current FBI Director Christopher Wray needs to be ready to resign if Congressional Republicans go through with releasing a controversial memo written by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) over his objections.

Talking with the Daily Beast’s Spencer Ackerman, the agents say that Wray’s credibility as an independent FBI director hangs in the balance if the White House defies his wishes and releases the Nunes memo, which the FBI itself has warned is misleading.

“Given the climate and the recent activities, going as far back as Director Comey’s departure, Wray definitely must be prepared to resign,” retired FBI agent Erroll Southers tells Ackerman.

Southers also adds that he is shocked that attacks by Republicans on the FBI have gotten this far.

“I never thought I’d see the FBI deemed the enemy of the state by anyone, let alone people in this country,” he says.

Former FBI counterterrorism special agent Ali Soufan, meanwhile, said that while he didn’t think Wray needed to resign, the director must at least be ready to “publicly discredit this cherry-picked, fake memo and expose Nunes.” And then if Trump fires Wray because of this, then people within the FBI who take their jobs seriously will need to all resign in protest.

“People in Washington should be prepared for a Saturday Night Massacre,” Soufan says. “Many honorable men and women should be prepared to resign, to walk out over this.”

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."

Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president

Published

One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.

In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
