Trump interviews 4 candidates to post of FBI director

Trump interviews 4 candidates to post of FBI director

Trump also met with former Oklahoma Gov.

According to media reports, the Trump administration is considering four candidates to replace fired FBI Director James Comey.

Anyone who suspects Lieberman is someone who has somehow transformed into a TrumpBot simply because of his connection to a law firm that now represents Trump should be roundly mocked.

"Lieberman is probably the only person who can get 100 votes in the Senate", Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, said on Capitol Hill on Thursday after the closed Senate briefing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

"We're very close to an Federal Bureau of Investigation director", said Mr. Trump, adding that the announcement is coming "soon".

Lieberman was born in Stamford, Connecticut, educated at Yale and Yale Law school, and served in the Connecticut state senate and as attorney general of the state before being elected as the state's Senator in Washington. In 2000, he was Democratic presidential nominee Al Gore's running mate.

It wasn't until 2006 that Democrats turned on Lieberman after he pissed off liberal activists through his support for the Iraq War and willingness to compromise with Republicans.

That same year, he was one of 17 Democrats who joined Republicans in voting in favor of an amendment of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act giving the USA authority to monitor the calls and emails of Americans communicating with people outside of the country without a warrant. Dick Durbin and others were critical of a potential Lieberman nomination, according to someone familiar with the discussion. But the appointment of Mueller, combined with Lieberman's longstanding friendships with members of both parties, could quash some of those foreseeable complaints. And asked if Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-independent senator from CT was his top pick, Trump said yes. Lieberman serves on the board of a DeVos-founded education organization.

Trump himself had already contradicted that explanation, telling interviewers earlier that he had already made a decision to dismiss Comey.

Benjamin Wittes, senior Brookings fellow and friend of Comey's, writes that Comey told him Trump had "asked for loyalty" soon after taking office and been "perceptibly uncomfortable" when Comey offered only honesty.

Lieberman told Fox Business Network past year that he "never changed parties" and in fact ended up endorsing Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential campaign against Trump. "The question is how the administrative agencies, in this case immigration, carry out his order".
