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.
Of course, I have my own preference...
EBL: Who Should replace Comey?
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?
Instapundit: Pro Tip for GOP Senate: Anything Schumer is for, you should be against, Richard Fernandez: Our Fragile Civilization and As the Orcs were made in parody of the Elves...
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).
