The White House confirmed that former Congressman Mike Rogers from Michigan is being considered as James Comey's replacement at the FBI.
The President has tweeted multiple times with the hashtag #DrainTheSwamp when referring to his firing of Comey. But when you look at some of the things that Mike Rogers has supported, it makes you wonder if the president is really serious.
For example. In 2013, Rogers literally said with regards to NSA surveillance programs: "you can't have your privacy violated if you don't know your privacy is violated, right?"
And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Kurt Nimmo did some digging:
In 2006 as a congress critter, he voted to allow electronic surveillance without a warrant, a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment. He voted to let the government gather intelligence without congressional oversight and also voted to extend the PATRIOT Act.
Rogers was on Trump's presidential transition team, but was let go during the Chris Christie purge.
Would Trump throw his enemies a slab of red meat by replacing Comey with someone that was an actual part of his team? Who knows with Trump?
But we do know, that when it comes to our liberties, Mike Rogers is no friend.
Keep looking Mr. President.
