Trump says he's 'very close' to naming a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director

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. The announcement comes a day after Andrew Puzder withdrew his nomination.

The Trump administration is looking to fill the job, which requires Senate confirmation, after Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday. Despite the president's furious reaction, some fellow Republicans welcomed Mueller's appointment and expressed hopes it would restore some composure to a capital plunged in chaos.

Trump needs a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director because he fired James Comey last week, an unexpected move that drew bipartisan criticism.

"I think the process is going to go quickly".

President Trump strongly disagreed.

He said it "shows we're a divided, mixed-up, not unified country" and is "a very, very negative thing".

The updates came from Trump as he addressed the media after a White House meeting with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. The White House says President Donald Tru.

The Daily Mail reported she said he sent her numerous photos, one of him in a pool and at least one bare-chested. As part of the plea agreement, he will have to comply with the Sex Offender Registry and Notification Act.

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

President Trump and his inner circle don't know how to judge Lieberman's past as a Democrat and independent. Trump has denounced the probe as a "witch hunt". Look where he works now, a Trump law firm.

Other Democrats during the committee meeting applauded the selection of Robert S. Mueller III as the special counsel for the Russian Federation investigation, but they said it doesn't mean they're dropping their own inquiry. Now Mueller will have almost unfettered access to witnesses and information, and the ability to bring criminal charges.

The White House declined to comment to Politico, while Lieberman's office had not yet replied as of the publication of its story.

Already Democrats are bitching and moaning at the thought of Lieberman taking over.

"This was a very good first step". Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, said on the chamber floor. "I now have significantly greater confidence that the investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead". John Cornyn (R-Tex.), who said he wanted to stay in the Senate to push for conservative legislation.

His friends say he took a hard right turn after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and his support of Republican George W. Bush's entrance into the Iraq War led to a challenge from Greenwich anti-war activist Ned Lamont in the 2006 U.S. Senate primary. And more to the point, it is not as if there is no one else qualified to do this job.
