Lieberman the frontrunner for Federal Bureau of Investigation post

Lieberman the frontrunner for Federal Bureau of Investigation post

Politico, CNN and NBC News all reported Thursday that Lieberman is the frontrunner to succeed James Comey, the controversial, high-profile director who was sacked last week by President Donald Trump.

"I think it'd be a big mistake to nominate Joe Lieberman", Booker told reporters outside Newark International Liberty Airport after a rally for workers. Lieberman would replace James Comey, who was sacked last week.

Earlier, during a lunch with television news anchors, Trump was hesitant to name the frontrunner.

Some allies of the president have said he could announce his pick before leaving Friday for a nine-day foreign trip - his first overseas tour as president.

Blumenthal said the next director could be "a career prosecutor with a distinguished background - not just any prosecutor".

The president also replied "he is" when asked whether Lieberman is a top candidate for the position.

Mr. Trump and Sessions also met with three other candidates on Wednesday - former Republican Oklahoma governor Frank Keating, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, and former FBI official Richard McFeely. "It's special", Trump said later at a joint news conference with Santos. Republicans on Capitol Hill hoped the same, reasoning that the appointment of a special counsel could free them to work on a major tax overhaul and other matters without constant distractions.

Open during his looming absence. "I felt a bit of stiffness on Sunday, hit a couple of drives, and didn't feel quite right". However, McIlroy has announced that he will indeed continue to prepare for the heralded U.S.

Also, some Democrats are skeptical about Lieberman's independence from Trump given that the two are now in an attorney-client relationship.

Brown is one of the many Democrats who blames Lieberman for lobbying with Republicans against a 2009 Democratic proposal to extend Medicare benefits to people 55 years old rather than the current lower limit of 65. "Everybody likes and respects Joe Lieberman".

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.

Burr says the committee wants to hear from Comey on his role in the development of the USA intelligence agencies' assessment that Russian Federation interfered in last year's election. Lieberman added that McFarland "and General Mike Flynn will form a very strong leadership team at the National Security Council".

Lieberman served as U.S. Senator from CT from 1989 to 2013. Lieberman testified in support of Sessions at his January confirmation hearing.

Lieberman was Democrat Al Gore's vice presidential nominee in 2000 and unsuccessfully ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004. After losing the Senate primary in part because of Connecticut Democrats' betrayal and unwillingness to support a so-called moderate, Lieberman ran as an Independent and won by 10 percentage points. John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC). He has served as co-chairman of No Labels, a centrist group that promotes bipartisanship.

Most well-known for the eight years (1995 to 2003) he served as Oklahoma's governor, Keating also has spent some time in the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
