McConnell thinks Garland as FBI director ‘fantastic idea,’ ex-adviser says

by FOXNews.com  |  published on May 15, 2017

GarlandSenate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is behind the idea of Judge Merrick Garland, whose Supreme Court nomination McConnell squashed, becoming the next FBI director, a former adviser to the Kentucky senator said Sunday.

“I think the senate majority leader thinks that’s a fantastic idea,” former adviser Josh Holmes, who now runs the strategy firm Cavalry LLC, told “Fox News Sunday.” “He certainly thinks (Garland) will be qualified. And (McConnell) certainly thinks he would be somebody that he could support.”

Garland was former President Barack Obama’s nominee to replace conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in 2016.

    • the whistler

      Kinda put the Old Rocket into Mitch where the sun don’t shine….Love your post…. had me laughing for quite a few minutes. Not quite Shakespearean in its eloquence…. but definitely is a good read and makes your point!

      • Rocket Doc

        I’M NOT A BEAT AROUND THE BUSH KIND OF MAN. I DON’T CARE WHAT “ANYONE” THINKS ABOUT MY OPINIONS, OR POSTS. THE OLDER I GET, THE FARTHER RIGHT I GO!! HELL… I’M SO FAR RIGHT NOW, I CAN’T MAKE LEFT HAND TURNS!!!

        • the whistler

          There you go again…got me laughin’ . You do realize that the world needs a replacement for Don Rickles….I think we have him at 1776 with you Rocket.

    I THINK NEWT WOULD BE. WE DO NOT NEED ANYONE CLOSLEY ASSOCIATED WITH THE OBAMA MESS.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT AN AMERICAN FIRST. PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON THERE.

    EVERY ONE AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC. (TAKE OVER WASHINGTON, COULD BE) WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS IF SO.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    Once a Rino always a Rino, this country doesn’t need anything that Obama wanted, like everything else Obama did, it wasn’t for our best interest, mark him off!

  • McFerguson

    Just when I was about to forgive McConnell for all his past transgressions against conservatives, he gets on board with this insane idea. We DON’T need an Obama failed Supreme Court nominee to head up the FBI. Period! We don’t need to apologize to left wing loons for beating them at their own political game. We need to stay on offense, not defense. We need to appoint and FBI Director who understands what the ‘Rule of Law’ is and how important it is to the Constitution which is the Supreme Law of the Land. We need to appoint an FBI Director whose very name would likely cause Hillary Clinton to reach for her Depends. The name “Merrick Garland” is not the one. He’s a marshmallow and would likely cause Hillary to break out that insane laugh track of hers usually seen at campaign events or late night television talk-show appearances.

      I knew I should have stopped reading after it said “McConnell thinks.”

      • the whistler

        McConnell is an Oxymoron….without the ‘Oxy’ part.

    • Bonnie Allen

      You just don’t get it, do you? Merrick Garland would never be nominated. However, the Dems say they will block ANY nominee Trump puts up….and Garland is the Dems guy. Would they block him? It’s also a put-down after being nominated for SCOTUS by Obama and McConnell says to Dems, ‘SCOTUS, not so much…. FBI Director, that’s OK.’ It’s all tongue in cheek, you dopes.

      • McFerguson

        Hey, bozo, Sen Lee (R-UT) brought it up in the first place, then McConnell jumped on, probably looking for political points since both McConnell and Garland are from Texas. Then Sen. Chuck U. Schumer, the toad from N.Y., hopped aboard. It doesn’t take too long for politicians to get in line and sell their souls for what they think may advance them politically. But, no, YOU DOPE, I don’t think the Trumpster would ever nominate Garland, a world-class milk-toast, as FBI Director. That position needs a person with some stones, and its extremely rare to find a democrat who has them. Are you down with that? You dope…

        • Bonnie Allen

          Sorry I didn’t make myself more clear. I actually agree with you.

          • McFerguson

            A wise move, Bonnie, a very wise move…

  • gowdy gowdy gowdy!
