President Obama plans to nominate James B. Comey, a former hedge fund executive who served as a senior Justice Department official under President George W. Bush, to replace Robert S. Mueller III as the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to two people with knowledge of the selection.Someone is going to have to explain how a former hedge fund manager is going to be qualified to run the FBI, unless of course this is yet another example of the revolving door of Washington.
So the guy made some political stunt during the Bush II years. He still went along with the whole wiretapping affair after some adjustments were made. But to imply he thwarted some illegal program (which went ahead anyhow) in the name of altruism is outright silly.
Comey is just another reboot in the new Millennial America, where everyone pretends to be on either side of the same coin, flipped in full display of the public and with a politically-blinding glimmer.
