Former Sen. Joe Lieberman top pick for Trump's new FBI director

He also backed Republican Sen. Mark Warner, announced Friday that Comey will testify in an open setting before the committee.

Trump said Monday that the search for a successor to Comey was "moving rapidly".

Politico also surmises that Democrats are still bitter over Lieberman's distancing himself from several Obama policies over the last few years, including the Iranian nuclear deal and Obamacare. Fran Townsend might give Trump the bipartisan support he clearly hoped to generate with Lieberman plus a significant amount of experience at the Department of Justice and in national security.

President Trump is moving quickly to replace fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, and four candidates have emerged at the top of the heap. Joe Lieberman was among the candidates.

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

The newspaper is citing unidentified people familiar with the investigation. Kasowitz has previously been described as Trump's "go-to guy".

President Trump says he did not ask Comey to end investigation
He said he was "highly alarmed" by record levels of coca cultivation and urged the Colombian government to remedy the problem. Trump met with Lieberman at the White House on Wednesday, The Associated Press reported.

Lieberman is now senior counsel with Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman - a firm that has represented Trump in the past for defamation suits and other legal battles. We're learning that Trump is wildly out of touch with Americans - not to mention, ethical standards - as it touched off a firestorm that led to the appointment of a special counsel to investigate his White House and Russian Federation.

"If they wanted me, I certainly would be honored, but I really don't think that's going to happen", Keating, 73, told The Oklahoman after his interview at the White House. It says one official had read quotations to the Times and another had confirmed the broad outlines of the discussion.

McCabe became acting director following Comey's dismissal May 9.

"I accept this responsibility and will discharge it to the best of my ability", said Mueller in a statement.

Trump met with the 75-year-old Lieberman on Wednesday, six days after the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. He has no federal law enforcement experience and, while now at a high-profile law firm, is most associated as a centrist Democrat.

The former four-term senator from CT is the front-runner for the job, Trump told reporters Thursday.

SBI Q4 net more than doubles to Rs 2815 cr
Net interest income for the fourth quarter ending March 31, 2017 grew by 22.71 per cent to Rs 579.99 crore from Rs 472.65 crore. Jayakumar said Bank of Baroda has created a stressed asset management group where large ticket accounts are directly managed.

The president departed Friday afternoon on a four-country, nine-day tour of the Middle East and Europe.

Garcia, 55, is an associate judge on the New York Court of Appeals who served as USA attorney for the Southern District of New York during President George W. Bush's administration.

And not a moment too soon, Democrats said. But we need a law enforcement professional, not someone who's run for office before.

Massachusetts Democratic congressman Seth Moulton says Rosenstein didn't "do a lot to bolster our confidence in him".

"Well I respect the move, but the entire thing has been a witch hunt", he said, insisting there had been "no collusion" between his campaign and Russian Federation. His only law enforcement experience came in the six years before his ascent to the Senate, during which he served as as Connecticut Attorney General.
