Amidst an endless swarm of accusations from the media after the firing of James Comey, the Senate made a statement Tuesday proving President Trump knew exactly what he was doing.
Christopher Wray, President Trump’s pick to lead the FBI, was confirmed in record-breaking fashion with a landslide victory of 92-5. This left many popular media outlets and Democratic figureheads with very little to fall back on, especially when you factor in the sweeping win given to President Trump’s nominee. The only Senators to vote against Gray’s nomination were Democrats with a history of fighting President Trump’s administration. Most Democrats praised Wray as a nominee, saying they believed he would have no issue operating independently of the President and would make no effort to politicize the bureau.
“It is really important that we have a strong FBI director. There can be no manipulation,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said before the vote.
Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said Wray was “forthright” about how he was vetted for the top FBI job.
It’s very difficult to deny President Trump’s true intentions regarding Comey now that the Senate has given such a unanimous verdict for his replacement. It speaks to how much a change was needed and how many people really knew it. President Trump – and the country – clearly needed a better man for the job, simple as that.
These are the steps necessary for a fresh start in Washington. Drain the swamp and start again with people who can help move this country forward.
