Trump: Joe Lieberman Front Runner for FBI Director


Donald Trump sure knows how to mix it up and keep everyone guessing!

While most people were focused on Trey Gowdy, Trump apparently has been centering in on Joe Lieberman.  News just broke that Lieberman is the leading contender for the job, according to Donald Trump himself.

Here’s the breaking report, from CNN:

Former Sen. Joe Lieberman is President Donald Trump’s top pick to be nominated as FBI director, Trump said Thursday.

Speaking to reporters while meeting with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Trump said he is “very close” to choosing a new FBI director to replace James Comey. And asked if Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-independent senator from Connecticut was his top pick, Trump said yes.

Trump met with Lieberman Wednesday and found him “agreeable,” a source said.

Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have been interviewing candidates to lead the bureau since Trump suddenly fired former Comey last week only a few years into what was expected to be a 10-year term.

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

The firing drew instant criticism from both sides of the aisle, as Comey was overseeing the investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 US election and any possible links between the Trump camp and Russia during the campaign.

While Trump’s team initially claimed that the firing came after a review by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, laid out in a memo, that largely faulted Comey on his handling of the investigation into the private email server of Hillary Clinton, Trump later said in an interview he had already decided to fire Comey and cited the Russia investigation as being at the top of mind.
