    Comey appears to be a good nomination from an administration which leaves a lot to be desired.

    His statements leave a lot of doubt. The 4th Amendment protects us from governmental spying. Things that are not in plain sight require a warrant signed by a judge based on probable cause that a crime has already been committed.

    The head of the FBI cannot be confirmed unless he is willing to swear an oath: "The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

    It seems to me that this person is not qualified to serve as the head of the FBI until he tells us that NO spying of ANY kind will ever occur without a warrant based on criminal activity that has already occurred.
