Trump Is 'Very Close' To Naming A New FBI Director

Trump Is 'Very Close' To Naming A New FBI Director

An announcement could come Friday, the soft deadline Trump set for himself.

Trump clearly knew what he wanted to say as he took a few questions at a news briefing with visiting Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. "This is a moment for someone with a law enforcement background", said Sen.

McCabe became acting director following the May 9 firing of Comey. Lieberman is senior counsel at Kasowitz, Benson, Torres and Friedman, which has represented Trump for years.

Trump also met with former Oklahoma Gov.

Trump's choice must win Senate confirmation amid the Justice Department's investigation into Russia's election hacking and the Trump campaign's possible involvement. Trump said Thursday that he respected Mueller's appointment, but he denounced the probe as a "witch hunt".

The Kentucky Republican had said initially that investigations by the Senate intelligence panel and the FBI were sufficient.

The 55-year-old Garcia, a registered Republican, served as Manhattan U.S. attorney from 2005 to 2008.

On the other hand, if you're looking for incompetence, bias, and general inability to slot crime A onto suspect B, Lieberman is a top notch candidate.

Lieberman is a former Democratic senator from CT who was the party's 2000 vice presidential nominee before being forced out of the party by a primary challenger over his support for the Iraq War.

Earlier in the day, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said the Trump administration understood Turkey's position against the YPG. The security detail, he continued, violated American laws on United States ground, and that can not happen.


'The NHS cyber-attack is a wake up call', says security specialist
The ransomware appeared to exploit a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows that was purportedly identified by the U.S. British Prime Minister Theresa May denied reports that her government had neglected cyber-security issues.


Inflation hits three-and-a-half-year high
In a summary of business conditions for May, the Bank said consumer goods price inflation "had picked up markedly". GDP growth slowed to 0.3 per cent in the first quarter while total hours worked increased by 0.8 per cent.


Meanwhile, the FBI continues its investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, even though no evidence has emerged to date.

Some of the appeal of Lieberman to Trump may be in a personal connection. Mr Lieberman added that Mr McFarland "and General Mike Flynn will form a very strong leadership team at the National Security Council".

Mr. Lieberman, 75 years old, served as attorney general in CT before his election to the Senate in 1988, but has no federal law-enforcement experience, unlike past FBI directors.

Lieberman previously served as a senator from CT and was Al Gore's running mate in the 2000 presidential election.

In order to keep his senate seat in 2006, Lieberman chose to run as an Independent under the "Connecticut for Lieberman" party label. John McCain and Lindsey Graham is the Democratic base's equivalent of a Tea Party candidate hosting a Planned Parenthood fundraiser.

The president's tweets drew little reaction from fellow Republicans, who instead joined Democrats in heaping praise on Mueller, a longtime respected lawman who served under George W. Bush and Barack Obama, preceding Comey as head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Keating told his hometown newspaper after the interview that he doesn't expect to be chosen.

In recent testimony before Congress, Mr. McCabe rejected the White House criticism that rank-and-file agents had lost faith in Mr. Comey. He also disputed the administration's characterisation of the investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and Trump associates. John Cornyn of Texas, both Republicans; Alice Fisher, the former head of the Justice Department's criminal division; and Michael Garcia, a former US attorney from Manhattan.
