Merrick Garland for FBI Director?

I thought this was a joke at first, but apparently it is being seriously considered by Mitch McConnell (at least that was floated on Fox News Sunday this morning). A couple of things: Would Garland give up a life time appointment in the D.C. Circuit to be FBI Director?  It opens up a significant judicial appointment for Trump. At the same time, couldn't a very hostile FBI Director cause a lot of problems for President Trump?

Still, as a way of trolling Democrats, it is sort of interesting.

Breitbart: Comey-Clinton Connections

Hot Air: Do American even care about Comey firing?

Don Surber: Even Hillary voters don't care and Courage Dan Rather

Legal Insurrection: Merrick Garland for FBI Director? What about William Jacobson?

Washington Examiner: Can Schumer block any confirmation vote?  Only if he gets defections from the GOP side.

Nox and Friends: The Comey Clinton Connection How long did Comey work there--five years?  Six million bucks is a lot of compensation...what did Comey do for Lockheed Martin? Then he gets appointed to the FBI by Barack Obama (that should tell you something).

  1. Since Garland was Pissy's choice for SCUS, he's going to be the most partisan, agenda-driven Lefty this side of Eric Holder.

    Gowdy OTOH...
