1) Even the biggest Trump fans have to admit by now that his DOJ/intel picks were not good. Sessions, Coates, Wray. These guys were Deep State all the way, and no, they were not and are not involved in some Q-type sting.

They were bad apples.
2) The question is why? One theory is that Trump expected that these new guys being brought in would be awed by the nature of the task and would ditch any swampish allegiances they had.
3) Another theory is that they all came strongly recommended from the GOP. But as Coates showed, being strong on national defense does NOT = being strong defending the nation from traitorous spoogesockets.
4) Or, it could be argued that Wray and Coates, especially, were chameleons and hid their Deep State affections well.

5) A final argument is that like the kids pickup-sticks game, Trump had to pull one "stick" out at a time. The problem with that is he had free rein . . .
5) contd . . . to nominate a new FBI director and still blew it. Wray is the exact opposite of a swamp cleaner.
6) At any rate, Trump now has Pompeo, Radcliffe, Barr (whose effectiveness remains to be seen, despite his tough talk), and must give Wray the pink slip before anything can get done.
