Texas Southern University Cancels Sen. Cornyn's Commencement Speech After Student Opposition
May 16, 2017, 09:11
Once reserved for cheesy senior photos at campus landmarks, college commencement exercises have graduated into something different six months after Donald Trump was elected president: a battleground for protesting conservative policies and the people who promote them.
Cornyn's inclusion on the list came even as historically black Texas Southern University canceled Cornyn's planned Saturday commencement address amid opposition from students upset about his politics.
The Trump administration is said to be considering close to a dozen candidates for the position, including Gowdy, formerly a federal prosecutor who sits on the House Intelligence Committee.
U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, on Sunday said he was uneasy about picking Cornyn - or anyone else with a political background - to succeed James Comey, who Trump last week ousted as FBI director amid the agency's investigation into whether members of Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.
A Duke-educated lawyer, McCabe was named previous year as the FBI's deputy director, the No. 2 position in the bureau, overseeing significant investigations and operations.
"I think it's now time to pick somebody that comes from within the ranks or is such of reputation that has no political background at all that can go into the job on day one".
Senate Democrats likely will stall on whomever Trump nominates while Republican senators such as Susan Collins of ME and Lindsey Graham of SC have voiced concerns over nominating someone to the position who works in a partisan environment.
There's one school HBCU that didn't want to follow in the footsteps of Bethune-Cookman University, by having a republican give the class of 2017 commencement speech. "But these are not normal circumstances".
Also, Trump reportedly demanded loyalty out of Comey, who said he only promised his honesty. You may recall that McConnell blocked a confirmation vote on Garland's appointment by then-President Obama to the Supreme Court previous year.
After Trump fired Comey last week amid the FBI's investigation, Cornyn said it was "within his authority" to do so. Nominating partisan Republicans such as Cornyn or Rogers to head the bureau would blur that distinction in the public mind.
'Please recall that Coretta Scott King urged Congress to block the 1986 nomination of Jeff Sessions for federal judge, saying that allowing him to join the federal bench would "irreparably damage the work of my husband, " the petition said.
Cornyn has also occasionally criticized Trump - albeit gently.
