Senate confirms Comey to be next FBI director


The United States Senate confirmed on Monday James Comey as the new director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Comey, 52, will replace Robert Mueller, who has led the bureau since shortly before the September 11, 2001, attacks. He served as deputy attorney general from 2003 to 2005 under George W. Bush.

The Senate confirmed Comey overwhelmingly by a 93 to 1 margin. Republican Senator Rand Paul casted the only no vote over his concerns about the FBI’s use of domestic drones.

Senator Paul had threatened to filibuster Comey’s nomination unless the FBI answered questions about its use of domestic drones. He later released his hold when the FBI responded to his query.

Paul said in a statement that he disagreed with the FBI’s position that a warrant shouldn’t be required to deploy a spying drone.

Privacy advocates have also been alarmed at the number of loopholes the federal government uses to spy on its own citizens.

Comey admitted earlier this month that he signed a controversial memo in 2005 allowing the use of torture. He approved the torture memo that allowed the use of enhanced interrogation techniques like waterboarding and sleep deprivation on captured terrorism suspects.

The torture memos, which were drafted and signed in 2002, have been widely criticized by civil liberties advocates and legal scholars.

    Hi Tap, this might give you a bit of a Laugh,another one of The “BRAIN DEAD” has stirred, tending to confirm, a well known saying about Empty Vessels. Famous for:-

    Lord Howell is the former Secretary of State for Energy, and later for Transport in Margaret Thatcher’s first Cabinet (1979-83). He was Minister of State in Northern Ireland (1972-74) and has held several other government posts. He was chairman of the International Energy Agency ministerial meeting in May 1979.

    From 1987-97, he was chairman of the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee.

    From May 2010 to Sept 2012, Lord Howell was appointed Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, with responsibility for international energy policy.

    After stepping down from the post in September 2012, he was appointed as personal adviser to Foreign Secretary William Hague on energy and resource security.

    According to the Conservative Party website, Lord Howell is credited by several authorities with having invented the idea of privatisation in the late 1960s.

    He is also Chairman of the British Institute of Energy Economics, which counts Shell and BP among its members.
    Lord Howell is married with two daughters and one son. One of his daughters, Frances, is married to George Osborne, the Chancellor.

    Osborne’s Father Inlaw, Howell branded ‘foolish and ill-informed

    The Original Comment In The Daily Mail Was, Just Too Good Not To Reply To:

    “Tory peer sparks furious row after saying it is OK to drill for shale gas in the North East because it’s ‘desolate and uninhabited'”

    So I sent them the following Comment “The only thing desolate & uninhabited is the space between his ears”. They Published, surprisingly enough.

    It must have been up for quite a while – Due to the number of complaints received, your comment has been removed from MailOnline.

    We have received a number of complaints about the comment you made on article. How many more like this did they receive, because they have changed the headline to read.

    Fracking? Do it in the ‘desolate North East, says Osborne’s father-in-law: Tory peer provokes fury with his comments

    Here is The Original, they have pulled all the others.
    Tory peer sparks furious row after saying it is OK to drill for shale gas in the North East because it’s ‘desolate and uninhabited’

    THIS MIGHT EXPLAIN WHY OUR ENERGY RESOURCES ARE IN SUCH A BLOODY AWFULL STATE, & WHY OSBORNE, IS GIVING AWAY SO MUCH MONEY, ON THIS “BRAIN DEAD” SCHEME, WHICH WILL ULTIMATELY, CONTAMINATE THE WATER TABLES.

    I did some Posts on this a couple of years ago, when it first Stirred It’s Ugly Head!

    DO ANY OF THESE CHARACTERS KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING?

    REGARDS …….. WASP
