FBI Director Christopher Wray might resign if the Republican memo alleging surveillance abuse is made public, White House aides and former FBI agents warn.

Wray, who assumed the top post at the agency following President Donald Trump’s firing James Comey, has publicly opposed releasing the memo, written by House intelligence committee head Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., which the FBI warned Thursday has “material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”

Trump has indicated he does not plan to block the memo’s release, which the committee voted to approve earlier this week.

“Given the climate and the recent activities, going as far back as Director Comey’s departure, Wray definitely must be prepared to resign,” retired FBI special agent Erroll Southers, who is now at the University of Southern California, told The Daily Beast.

Former FBI counterterrorism special agent Ali Soufan disagreed, saying, “I don’t think the director has to resign. He should be prepared to publicly discredit this cherry-picked, fake memo and expose Nunes.”

He added if Trump “wants to fire Wray, let him fire Wray, like Comey. And then people in Washington should be prepared for a Saturday Night Massacre. Many honorable men and women should be prepared to resign, to walk out over this.”

According to CNN, top White House aides have expressed concern Wray could resign, though multiple White House officials and the FBI declined to comment to the news network.

  1. Isn’t it just amazing that when the SHTF the sleazy CORRUPT criminals bail like RATS off a sinking ship?
    (so they can retain their PRECIOUS PENSIONS and stick it to the taxpayers yet again as they get away with breaking the LAW)

  2. Wray must be a Deep State snake…. Or else he is spineless and unwilling to standup to the corruption. What is really wrong with this is if there was wrong doing with Clinton’s emails, the FISA warrant, the wiretaps/eavesdropping on the Trump campaign. Why did no one with integrity stand up to the corruption? The lack of integrity makes them all suspect and untrustworthy, thus dirty, dishonest cops. CIA, NSA, FBI, DOJ the list is quite long of culpable bodies, from minor to major.

  3. I’m assuming, maybe incorrectly, that he would resign because he had enough integrity to admit he didn’t clean house and get rid of the law breaking corrupt individuals like he should have. They bring a cloud over the entire FBI which is so incredibly unfair to the agents who aren’t involved. If that’s the reason, the President could refuse to accept it.

  4. They are all running scared, when the iceberg tips the true faces of treason will be shown, Obozo, Killery, Comey……the list is too long, all typical anti American Dumbocraps who need to be finally flushed from our society!

  5. I say have a nice day. I believe this man was not properly vetted by President Trump. He’s clearly part of the Comey McCabe fraternity.

  6. They should appoint an outsider, such as a Federal Judge to head up the agency. There are too many upper echelon that have become tainted. I know this is an embarrassment to many of the rank and file but I am also sure this corruption discovery is not a surprise to most. Just think, William and Marry university in Virginia has offered Comey a job teaching ethics. That will say a lot on their future credibility.

  7. Please quit as Director, do not Threaten the American people because we can give two shits about you we want your ass shattered office so we could put a good man in there.

  8. So what, because he is probably guilty as well of obstruction and inviting Russia to add to the fish warrant? It is my fervent hope that this is the beginning of releasing Barry husseins and Hillaries e mails from private servers that outlined the depths of their corruption that would still be going on if grandma won the election. Those would be regarding fast and furious, Benghazi, and the sick Iranian nuke deal, just to name a few.
    Since her private server was hacked, talk to any veteran who served in asscrackistan and to how many of our troop were killed because of intercepted e mails concerning missions where they knew we when and where we were coming.
    Watch the body count go up now.
