James Comey -Good Riddance... but,

The decision to fire James Comey is overdue but it is the right thing to do. He has tarnished the shield of the FBI and his judgement is highly questionable. He is, in my opinion the worst Director the FBI has ever seen. His oversized ego, sanctimonious attitude and arrogance set the stage for his downfall.  He seems a lot more concerned about his image than doing the right thing and the chickens have come home to roost.  I am glad he is gone and the FBI will be better for it hopefully.

The dilemma is that the same President who fired Comey is the same President who will appoint his replacement and that's the really scary part. Looking around the White House at Trumps appointments like Kelly Ann Conway, Steve Bannon, Sean Spice and others should give anyone pause.  It is highly doubtful that Trump will choose a competent, skilled, honest law enforcement professional who will lead the FBI effectively. Trump is more concerned with disproving any Russia connection to his campaign than selecting an individual that might ultimately be responsible for charging him with crimes if his involvement with Russia could be proven.

I am glad Comey is gone but gravely concerned about who Trump might select to replace him.
