There’s obviously no love being lost between Comey and Trump. After repeatedly undermining investigations by playing ball with the Democrats, the former FBI director proved to be too much of a liability in Trump’s quest to drain the swamp.
But now comes the question of who will replace Director Comey?
Who can President Trust to be honest, forthright, and dedicated to his position? Basically, who is Comey’s opposite?
The Associated Press has listed four potential nominees for the role, including NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly, Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.
It’s the fourth nominee however that has conservatives on the internet cheering!
The people’s top choice is clear, and most Democrats will want Comey back after seeing who might be his replacement!
From Conservative Tribune:
[A]mong the celebrations and grievous outcries percolating on the Internet, one name consistently drew mention as the top potential replacement as head of the FBI, that being Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, a veritable rock-star in conservative circles.
Twitter has lit up with conservatives clamoring for Trey Gowdy to be nominated.

Even former Congressman and Democrat Bakari Sellers has come out in support of his fellow South Carolinian.
Dems are going to hate me for this. I don't care. The best replacement for Comey is Trey Gowdy. He's as honest as day is long.

Trey Gowdy would be an excellent choice given his impressive credentials. Many a Democrat has withered under Gowdy’s steely gaze and fierce questioning when he served on the House Oversight Committee.
Gowdy also proved his loyalty to the president when he endorsed him during the 2016 election. Many other prominent Republicans refused to do the same.
This loyalty is something Trump will desperately need to stay ahead of his enemies.
Do you think Trey Gowdy would make a good replacement? Let us know in the comments below!
