His name is James Comey. He was the Attorney General for Bush. At one time Comey was to become FBI Director, but it never happened. Bush tried to pass the warrantless wireless wiretap act whose re-authorization time was up. The act would continue the surveillance of American citizens by wiretaps, but Comey threatened to resign if the wireless wiretapping continued. The wiretapping reauthorization went through and Comey never resigned. But at least he protested and Bush agreed to make changes to the wiretapping.
Maybe when James Comey becomes FBI Director, he’ll discover all the surveillance that is happening to American citizens and he’ll be able to do something about it. He’ll be in charge.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this happens. We must have hope.
But with hope also comes doubt.
I’m going to write him a letter as soon as he become FBI Director.
