FBI Director Christopher Wray

PARKLAND, FLORIDA – Today, Governor Rick Scott made the following statement regarding the FBI’s admission that they failed to take action after receiving information on January 5, 2018, regarding “[Nikolas] Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting.”

Governor Scott said, “The FBI’s failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable. The FBI has admitted that they were contacted last month by a person who called to inform them of Cruz’s ‘desire to kill people,’ and ‘the potential of him conducting a school shooting.’

“Seventeen innocent people are dead and acknowledging a mistake isn’t going to cut it. An apology will never bring these 17 Floridians back to life or comfort the families who are in pain. The families will spend a lifetime wondering how this could happen, and an apology will never give them the answers they desperately need.

“We constantly promote ‘see something, say something,’ and a courageous person did just that to the FBI. And the FBI failed to act. ‘See something, say something’ is an incredibly important tool and people must have confidence in the follow through from law enforcement. The FBI Director needs to resign.”

    Yes, let’s get rid of another one of Trump’s appointees. Trump administration already leads all administrations in turnover in the first year of office, so what’s another incompetent down the drain?

      Trumps first year in office was the best year America has had in decades. Job creation high, taxes lowered, support for military, ISIS defeated, etc.

      Personal turnover is a good thing as President Trump is draining the swamp and learning who he can trust and who he can not.

      Trump inherited a corrupt and totally dysfunctional government.

      Democrats and RINO Republicans are undermining the MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda. You are wrong and a fool to put down our President for political reasons. Stand with Americans to repair our broken system.

      President Trump is doing a great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Take away their suits that Hoover dressed them long ago to give them a clean wholesome image. They have been compromised.

        Yes, and in the 80’s they got caught red handed with a Russian spy in their midst. No pun intended.

        You confuse hate with strongly opinionated. This is an opinion forum. The rest of nitpicks are most certainly your opinion. Good luck!

    Rick Scott is barely literate, and can’t put two sentences together without help.This was written for him by a republicrook apparatchik so he’d know what to say, and so it could be understood. It’s Rick Scott who should resign, on the grounds that he’s gross unqualified for the job.

      Your sic comments introducing politics into a shooting spree that could have been prevented is beyond the pale.

      It’s high time the hate comes to an end. It is your hateful attitude that is fueling the fire that breeds these shootings. In addition you are destroying the Democratic Party. Hopefully you don’t speak for them as it is comments like this that turn people off to the Democratic Party.

        The politics got introduced into the discussion long before I got here, and you’re the “sic” one if you don’t see that, unless you’re too busy agreeing with yourself to notice. Just look a little farther down the posts, it’s right there.

          You stupid sic liberals can’t even own your own behavior. Your the the one that made the untrue disparaging comments about Governor Rick Scott for political reasons. You are indeed the sic one!

          You are to stupid to recognize you were being called out for unjust political hate. Your not only sic, your a sic fool.

    Listening to the latest news, this shooting could have been prevented. Very sad.

  5. Governor Rick Scott Is Spot On Reply Report comment

    It has been clear to me that the FBI has lost it’s focus. We need much better oversight of law enforcement at every level. With all the latest revelations regarding the corruption and dirty cops at the helm of the FBI we need to overhaul the FBI’s purpose and direction. It’s obvious they have been using our resources against the American People instead of FOR the American People.

    Director Wray is yet another political leader of the FBI and part of the “deep state” we are learning about that does not have the best interests of our Republic as their focus.

    FBI Christopher Wray was asleep at the wheel and needs to go! This horrific incident in Florida could have been prevented!

    Overreaction on the Gov.’s part. The guy has only been the head of the FBI for a short time. He needs time to clean it up after the corrupt Obama Administration destroyed it.

    Never did like the FBI anyways. They don’t play with a full deck. And the cards are probably marked too. lol
