Lieberman May Have Conflict For FBI Post

White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters aboard Air Force One that President Donald Trump would meet with Keating, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former Connecticut Sen.

The former Democratic vice presidential nominee now works at the law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres in NY - the same firm as Trump's attorney Marc Kasowitz. Trump said "soon" when asked how close he is to making an announcement. Trump has said he could name a successor before he departs Friday on his first overseas trip as president.

Blumenthal said the next director could be "a career prosecutor with a distinguished background - not just any prosecutor". Joseph Lieberman departs the White House after meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump May 17, 2017 in Washington, DC. Joe Lieberman as a frontrunner to be the new Federal Bureau of Investigation director would help win over Lieberman's former Democratic colleagues in the Senate.

Trump is interviewing candidates to replace former FBI Director James Comey who was sacked last week. Plus, as a very special bonus, he works for the same law firm as Trump's personal lawyer. "Or who's campaigned for president".

Trump also said at the time that "the process is going to move quickly" and that he would make a "fast decision" to replace Comey. If his nomination is made official, Lieberman would have to be approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee, then confirmed by the full Senate.

Gore and Lieberman narrowly lost the disputed 2000 election to Republican George W Bush, and the CT senator mounted his own unsuccessful bid for the Democratic nomination in 2004.

Senator McCain on Thursday expressed support for Lieberman.

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. Joe Lieberman was a top candidate and that the two had a "good meeting".

According to Politico, Trump met with Lieberman on Wednesday and "bonded" with him. Flynn has figured prominently in the FBI investigation into Russian Federation and the election. Lieberman is senior counsel at Kasowitz, Benson, Torres and Friedman, which has represented Trump for years.

Lieberman was born in Stamford, Connecticut, educated at Yale and Yale Law school, and served in the Connecticut state senate and as attorney general of the state before being elected as the state's Senator in Washington. Mr Lieberman testified in support of Mr Sessions at his January confirmation hearing.

Lieberman was a senator for more than 20 years, was Al Gore's vice presidential nominee in 2000, and won Senate re-election in 2006 as a third-party candidate. "He's been a pain in the butt to both Republicans and Democrats during his time both in and out of the Senate", Murphy said.

Lieberman spoke at the 2008 Republican National Convention on behalf of his friend, Arizona Sen.

After leaving the office of governor, Keating served as the chairman of a panel appointed by the Catholic Church to investigate allegations of abuse by priests.
