Trump says he's 'very close' to naming a new FBI director


Lieberman met with Trump on Wednesday afternoon.

The circumstances surrounding the firing have made the appointment closely watched, with senators calling for an unimpeachable, nonpartisan appointment.

President Donald Trump's administration is considering appointing Joe Lieberman, the former Democratic vice presidential candidate, to fill former FBI Director James Comey's vacant position.

That probe is now in the hands of former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who was named as special counsel Wednesday.

Then-FBI Director James Comey sworn in prior to testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, May 3, 2017.

Insiders have reportedly urged Trump to consider a non-politician to fill the top Federal Bureau of Investigation job because a politician-whether Republican or Democrat-would have trouble getting Senate confirmation given the toxic partisanship on Capitol Hill these days. Claire McCaskill told reporters. Lieberman was a Democrat before changing party affiliations to Independent. Lieberman lost the primary as liberal Democrats flocked to Lamont, but Lieberman won the general election with the support of Republicans. John McCain's presidential bid in 2008 over Barack Obama, speaking at the Republican National Convention that year.

Lieberman now works at NY law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres, which has represented Trump. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) fumed about Lieberman's efforts to undercut more generous Medicare benefits in Obamacare and his relative closeness to Trump.

Several candidates have withdrawn from consideration: Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.; Cornyn; Alice Fisher, the former head of the Justice Department's criminal division; and Michael Garcia, a former US attorney from Manhattan.

When Cornyn was under consideration, even his GOP colleagues questioned whether he would be the right choice as an elected official. A different attorney general, perhaps-hopefully he doesn't come from one of the 43 states that pick them in elections.

The Justice Department has since appointed a special counselor to investigate the issue.

Considered a moderate with ties to members of both parties in Congress, Lieberman was state attorney general from 1983 till 1989 in CT before being elected to the US Senate from 1989-2013. He unsuccessfully sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004 before becoming an Independent in 2006. John McCain and Lindsey Graham is the Democratic base's equivalent of a Tea Party candidate hosting a Planned Parenthood fundraiser. As FBI chief, he would be in a position to act on President Donald Trump's reported desire to jail journalists who publish leaks of classified information.
