Who is on the list to replace Comey?

At least eight people have been interviewed to replace former FBI director James Comey, but some Democrats are threatening to block any replacement unless the Department of Justice names a special prosecutor to pick up the investigation into alleged Russian meddling during the election.

Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey joined Dana Loesch on "Dana" today to evaluate Texas Senator John Cornyn (R), the most surprising name on the list.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had said that Cornyn might be a better choice at another time, leading Morrissey to suggest the next FBI director will not be a current office holder.

Merrick Garland has been named by several in Washington as a top candidate, though Ed and Dana could not imagine why he'd want to leave his current position as chief justice of the District of Columbia circuit Court of Appeals for a ten year gig.
