Default Report: Wray threatened to resign over Trump pressure to get rid of deputy at FBI

Report: Wray threatened to resign over Trump pressure to get rid of deputy at FBI

Quote:
FBI Director Christopher Wray reportedly threatened to resign from his post after being pressured by the Trump administration to fire Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Axios, citing three sources with direct knowledge of the situation, reported that Wray threatened to leave his position if forced to remove McCabe under growing pressure by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions was urged by President Trump to put pressure on Wray.
OMG!!!!....This is a bombshell!!!!!!...

It's also fake news...



According to CBS, they say their source is "Axios"...A leftwing website akin to Vox and RawStory...

What the hell is CBS doing?!?!?!...

You do realize these are two separate issues right? Firing McCabe and the memo?

D'oh!...

I googled "Wray resign" and I thought the first link would be about the memo...They fooled me...

Here we go...

White House worried FBI director could quit over Nunes memo release

Quote:
Top White House aides are worried FBI Director Christopher Wray could quit if the highly controversial Republican memo alleging the FBI abused its surveillance tools is released, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation tell CNN.

Wray has made clear he is frustrated that President Donald Trump picked him to lead the FBI after he fired FBI Director James Comey in May, yet his advice on the Nunes memo is being disregarded and cast as part of the purported partisan leadership of the FBI, according to a senior law enforcement official.

Wray's stance is "raising hell," one source familiar with the matter said.
"multiple sources with knowledge of the situation"...Must be true...

Multiple Sources is a strange name to place on a child. It's no wonder they and Un-known Sources cause so much trouble.

Having the same last name a coincidence? Or, are these two folks related?
