Trump promises quick nomination of new Federal Bureau of Investigation chief

James Comey said he will miss the FBI and its mission

President Donald Trump had not expected such a strong reaction over his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, he told Fox News' Jeanine Pirro in an interview that aired Saturday.

"It's now time to pick somebody who comes from within the ranks, or has such a reputation that has no political background at all that can go into the job on Day 1", the South Carolina Republican said.

"That is possible", said Trump, who is giving a commencement speech at Liberty University, in Lynchburg, Va. When the opposite occurred, Trump grew incensed - both at Democrats and his own communications staff for not quickly lining up more Republicans to defend him on television.

Warner also said he hopes to have Comey testify in a public hearing before his committee. Speaking in Boston, Comey was confident he would serve his full 10-year term.

Some FBI investigators are anxious the Trump administration could try to interfere with probes, including on Russian Federation, by shifting resources and priorities away from counterintelligence investigations, FBI sources tell CNN.

"The Comey firing is just the most dramatic example of a White House that is completely dysfunctional, the most chaotic in modern history", said historian and author Chris Whipple. President Donald Trump is considering more than a dozen candidates- including several lawmakers, attorneys, and law enforcement officials.

Adam Lee, a special agent in charge of the FBI's office in Richmond, Virginia, was interviewed as well. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe are among the four candidates being interviewed today.

Many within the conservative community voiced their sorrow at the media icon's passing. "He was a genius". Executive chairman of 21st Century Fox and Fox News Channel Rupert Murdoch gave a statement of his own.

But there is a clear consensus and outrage over the White House's decision to send the President's bodyguard to deliver the termination letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation while Comey himself was at a field office in Los Angeles, he said.

Fisher was assistant attorney general for the department's criminal division under President George W. Bush.

- Michael J. Garcia, a former prosecutor and associate judge on New York's highest court. It must be clear that Rosenstein will have final say on the FBI's Russian Federation inquiries.

Warner, who is leading the Senate's investigation into Russia's attempts to interfere in the United States presidential election along with Sen.

One source said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein isn't inclined to make a change unless the FBI investigation appears to be imperiled, and at this point, FBI officials are confident that the investigation is moving ahead, despite Comey's abrupt firing.

Mr Trump's behaviour has provoked fresh comparisons between his administration and that of disgraced President Richard Nixon, who famously recorded conversations, speeding his downfall during the Watergate scandal.
