Trump to meet with four Federal Bureau of Investigation director candidates, including Joe Lieberman

The Senate must confirm Mr Trump's candidate for the job.

President Donald Trump greets Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos as he arrives at the the White House in Washington, Thursday, May, 18th, 2017.

Update: Yesterday, Trump said the decision was "very close". The president has suggested he hopes to name Comey's successor before he departs Friday for his first overseas trip as president.

One source told Politico that Trump bonded with Lieberman in their interview for the position, and he was leaning towards the him in the immediate aftermath. Current acting director Andrew McCabe and former Oklahoma Gov.

The US media have been questioning alleged ties of the Trump campaign to Russian Federation and exploring the claims that Russian Federation may have influenced the 2016 presidential election.

"Frequently, Mr. Trump's tone is hysterical, and there is simply no reason for that", Mr. Keating said.

He says that even his "enemies" recognize his innocence, and he's declaring himself the most unfairly hounded president in history. Joseph Lieberman is his top pick to replace ousted James Comey at the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"Trump's doings are on the FBI's plate right now". Joe Lieberman is 75 years old. John Cornyn (R-Texas) speculated that Lieberman could get 100 confirmation votes, and Sen.

The idea of naming Lieberman to the post is being met with praise by Republicans. Not because we don't respect Joe Lieberman. Joseph Lieberman as his running mate, making him the first Jewish candidate on a major party ticket. Lieberman added that McFarland "and General Mike Flynn will form a very strong leadership team at the National Security Council".

House members leaving a briefing by the deputy attorney general on the probe of connections between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's presidential campaign say they're frustrated at not getting answers.

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. Lieberman lost the primary as liberal Democrats flocked to Lamont, but Lieberman won the general election with the support of Republicans. John McCain and Lindsey Graham is the Democratic base's equivalent of a Tea Party candidate hosting a Planned Parenthood fundraiser. He has spent part of his time as the co-chairman of a group called No Labels that seeks solutions by both political parties.

"If they wanted me, I certainly would be honoured, but I really don't think that's going to happen", Mr Keating, 73, told the newspaper after his interview.

Several other candidates have withdrawn from consideration. John Cornyn, both Republicans; Alice Fisher, the former head of the Justice Department's Criminal Division; and Michael Garcia, a former USA attorney from Manhattan.
