If not mentioned already, Senator Mike Lee suggested Merrick Garland as new head of FBI.  

I think that could be a good idea.

However, the Deputy Head who is right now the acting head is career FBI and appears to be a capable person.  

If President Trump isn't trying to derail the FBI investigation into the Trump's campaign or administration alleged collusion with Russia/Putin, he should nominate one of these two right now. (After a genuine vetting anyway.)

No Rudy Giuliani (who has been implicated himself), no Chris Christie and no other Republican partisan or Trump water carrier who has lied in regards to Trump and Russia "there's nothing to see here."

This would be a terrible idea.

It would allow Trump to pick a replacement for the DC circuit court.

Ah, sorry.  I didn't know Garland was still a Judge.

OK, so the Deputy Head (and acting head) seems to be a good choice.  He is career FBI, seems to have the respect of FBI officers and presumably has been continually 'vetted.'

I happened to be talking with Nixon at the time of the Iran-Contra scandal a few years ago. I didn't ask his opinion, but I think he had prepared a 10-15 minute comment on the subject for all his visitors. At the end of this mini-lecture he said, "But Reagan will survive because, when all is said and done, he can get up and say, 'I am an idiot and therefore can't be blamed,' and everyone will agree." He then looked away for a moment and said, quite wistfully, "I never had that option."

Trump said (in NBC interview) that he asked Comey whether he was under investigation.

I'm now reading in twitter that it might be illegal to ask the man who investigates you about it. Anyone knows?

It would probably be against FBI and DOJ policy for Comey to answer the question.

So today the President undermined the White House's rationale for firing Comey and then admitted he asked Comey if he was under investigation. Then he qualified if he was not under personal investigation, meaning the campaign is definitely under investigation. The White House today claimed countless FBI agents thanked them for firing Comey, which was refuted by the acting FBI Director.

Meanwhile the Washington Post confirmed that 30 sources say Trump fired Comey in relation to the Russian investigation while the Wall Street Journal says Comey was seeing evidence of collusion.

Then we learn the FBI raided a Republican digital firm in Annapolis which is connected to national GOP candidates.

Did I leave out anything?

FBI Directors don't inform people if they're under investigation or not. Comey probably said something along the lines of, "Well, I can't say that, but you're not the focus".

Not confirmed beyond Mensch so taking that with a grain of salt.

In any other Administration we would be talking impeachment tomorrow.

The FBI's acting head said on Thursday he believed the agency has sufficient resources to investigate alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and he was not aware of any request for more resources.

"If you are referring to the Russia investigation, I do. I believe we have the adequate resources to do it and I know that we have resourced that investigation adequately," acting FBI director Andrew McCabe told lawmakers, adding that he was unaware of any request by the agency for additional resources.

Sorry buddy...I dont trust the FAKE NEWS mainstream media...until InfoWars or Alex Jones says its true...I dont believe it.

This argument is patented by Republicans and only can by used by Blue avatars.

Oh c'mon man. That WAS funny. Tongue

I'm sure we would be talking impeachment if Democrats had control of least one chamber of Congress. Democrats not taking control of the Senate in 2016 was probably the most consequential thing to come out of the 2016 election.

I think losing the presidency was probably a good thing for the Democratic party in the long term, but not taking control of the Senate was a devastating blow to Democrats.

The Democrats would not impeach Trump and it would be suicidal to talk about it. Even talking about it would result in a civil war in the party that causes a number of us to switch to the GOP.

Yes because impeaching a highly unpopular president who is undergoing an active FBI investigation into his campaign's ties with Russia will cause a Democratic civil war…
