There is no reason why we should wait 10 weeks to root out corrupted and compromised members of the FBI.

even with it being Hillary and the same party. The media will claim its reckless to not have a director in place when the country is most vulnerable

Obama can handle the criticism, and it will come, regardless. He can reduce at least a little of the startup and transition to Hillary by starting the cleanup there.

14. The people who are convinced she doesn't have "credibility" are going to feel that way no matter

what.

In the meantime, you have unprecedented use of a powerful government institution for brazenly political ends. It's time to clean house.

23. It would be better to transfer the few bad eggs in the New York branch to Alaska..

 

... in February.


Her credibility should not be considered a lost cause. A clear majority does not trust her. She needs to try and rebuild her persona if she is going to get anything done.

Mayhaps it's time to change that, for good reasons.

As for the OP's "gutting" the FBI, since we are Democrats, maybe identification and appreciation of the good people and surgical excision of the renegades where possible and transfer to undesirable positions counting files or whatever where not.

Comey will 'resign' and be replaced but a mass gutting would look vengeful and petty.

that this is scary as hell, but it also needs to be done. I'm shocked by what's coming out in the news media, especially right wing news media, about the FBI and what they think of her. It's horrible.

Second, even hinting at such a move will destroy her presidency before it begins.

I think it is very unlikely that Hillary will fire him, but she could.

As appetizing as it is for her to fire him, I think Obama doing it is the better move politically.

55. Appoint a Special Investigator

Obama should appoint a special investigator to ferret out all of these leaks and potential Hatch Act violators. He should do that after the election, before Hillary is sworn in. Then Hillary can deal with the results of that investigation. It may take months, but this way neither Obama nor Hillary are taking heat for "revenge". If the independent investigation shows illegal or even unethical behavior by the FBI, then Comey should be encouraged to resign and the house cleaning can begin! The FBI needs to be impartial and the American people need to have faith in that institution. Some of us remember what it was like under J Edgar Hoover and we cannot allow this institution to sully its reputation again IMO.
