#2 If Wray threatened to resign he should be fired immediately. As Trump's appointee Trump will be blamed for everything Wray does.
McCabe seems to be implicated in the growing FBI scandals. Whether he is or not, his position makes him responsible for what has gone on, which has seriously harmed the FBI.
With McCabe in place, who can investigate these scandals?
It looks like Wray has to go and the sooner the better for everyone.

#3 Sessions should fire him and then resign himself. All these matters should be handled without drama before hand.

#4 I would have told Wray to not let the door hit him on the butt on the way out.

Then I would call HR and security and have him frog marched to the door with his one cardboard box of personal effects (thoroughly inspected).

#5 When any government employee offers to resign, accept it immediately.

#6 Exactly. Accept the resignation, effective immediately and march is stupid ass out the door.

Make sure his replacement knows he needs to play ball or he will be fired. Anybody found blocking investigations will be jailed for contempt and charged with obstruction.

#7 Any employee that has threatened to quit should be "allowed" to resign on the spot. You will never be able to trust them from pulling that again. And no one is irreplacable - period. It should happen on the spot with no wait time - don't give them a chance to warn others, etc. And that way it's a resignation, not a termination so no unemployment compensation. I followed that practice for 30 years as a manager an have never regretted it.

Note - that presumes that you haven't asked them to do something illegal or unethical of course!

#9 This just in from RedState: FBI Director Chris Wray announced Tuesday that his chief of staff, James Rybicki, is leaving the bureau.
Rybicki, who served in the same position under former FBI Director James Comey, had come under scrutiny from Republicans in recent months about his role in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Federal law enforcement sources told Fox News that Rybicki was not fired. His departure, they said, has “been in the works for awhile.”
“Jim Rybicki notified me last month that he will be leaving the FBI to accept an opportunity in the corporate sector,” Wray said in a statement. “While this is an exciting move for the whole Rybicki family, Jim will be dearly missed by the FBI family – and by me personally.”
Wray added: “His many years of dedication to the bureau and DOJ, his level-headed judgement and earnest professionalism, and his steady good cheer have been an asset to us all and have contributed greatly to the safety and security of our nation.”
The FBI director said he tapped attorney Zachary Harmon to replace Rybicki.
FBI Director Chris Wray says chief of staff Jim Rybicki is leaving for job in the private sector. He will be replaced by Zachary Harmon. Wray and Harmon worked together at law firm King & Spalding.
Yep, when you don’t want the guy’s departure to be a big story you totally announce it on Monday.
There have been several reports that Jeff Sessions wanted Christopher Wray to “clean house” at the FBI. Deputy director Andrew McCabe is waiting to retire in March. The general counsel, James Baker, has been removed from his position. Now the chief of staff is out the door. I can’t imagine Peter Strzok’s boss, Bill Priestap, survives because he either knew or should have know of his number two’s partisanship.
Maybe some of the scum on the swamp is being stirred at least.
