"I know that I'm not under investigation, me personally", Trump said.

Raymond Kelly is one of almost a dozen candidates President Trump is considering to succeed ousted FBI Director James Comey.

So far 14 people - lawmakers, attorneys and law enforcement officials among them - have emerged as candidates.

"I can not defend the Director's handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton's emails, and I do not understand his refusal to accept the almost universal judgment that he was mistaken", Mr Rosenstein goes on to say. "I thought that this would be a very popular thing, that I did, when I terminated Comey, because all of the Democrats couldn't stand him", Trump said.

Trump on Tuesday fired FBI Director James Comey.

The first candidate has already been interviewed.

Among those interviewed was Adam Lee, special agent in charge of the FBI's Richmond, Virginia, office.

Mrs Clinton's supporters cried foul when it emerged that the Trump election team was also under investigation by the FBI, but Mr Comey never divulged that until a long time after the election. John Cornyn, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, attorney Alice Fisher and judge Michael Garcia - have interviews scheduled Saturday.

He told her she was an angel, and asked her "to let what we believe is his daughter to know much he loved her". Hernandez was convicted of murder in MA for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd and was serving a life sentence.

-Former Rep. Mike Rogers of MI, who was chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

Ousted FBI Director James Comey has given people plenty of reason to question his judgment, particularly over his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation from last summer through the past week.

Mr Rosenstein's letter says "the FBI's reputation and credibility have suffered substantial damage, and it has affected the entire Department of Justice".

But Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will brief the full Senate next week, as the fallout over Comey's termination threatened to consume more time on Capitol Hill. She faced resistance from Democrats during her confirmation over her alleged participation in discussions about detention policies at the Guantanamo Bay facility in Cuba.

The person also will have to win the support of rank-and-file agents angered by the ouster of Comey, who was broadly supported within the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He's been deeply involved for years in FBI efforts to fight terrorism, serving in supervisory roles in Iraq and Afghanistan and later overseeing FBI worldwide terrorism investigations as a section chief.

During the dinner, Comey refused to pledge his loyalty and instead offered the president his honesty.

The shifting accounts of the decision to fire Comey, whom Trump derided as a "showboat" and "grandstander", added to a mounting sense of uncertainty and chaos in the West Wing, as aides scrambled to get their stories straight and appease an angry president.
