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

Joe Lieberman to replace former FBI Director James Comey.

But several Democratic senators said during a caucus lunch Thursday that they would not support Lieberman, according to a person familiar with the meeting who declined to be identified because the lunch was private. Russian officials have repeatedly denied charges of interfering in the USA elections, saying the allegations are absurd and represent an attempt to divert the U.S. public's attention from revealed instances corruption as well as other pressing domestic issues.

Some allies of the president have said he could announce his pick before leaving Friday for a nine-day foreign trip - his first overseas tour as president. The veteran FBI official made headlines for his congressional testimony last week that rejected the White House's claim that Comey had lost the support of rank-and-file agents and for disputing the administration's characterization of an investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump White House.

The Senate must confirm Trump's candidate for the job. John Cornyn, R-Texas, predicted the former CT senator would receive all 100 Senate votes.

Trump said Monday that the search for a successor to Comey was "moving rapidly". Lieberman was the first Democratic senator to criticize former President Bill Clinton publicly during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

The president's nominee must be confirmed in the Senate, where Democrats and some Republicans have fiercely criticised Comey's firing.

Because Lieberman has no experience running a large organization, no experience in law enforcement, and at 75 seems like the least probable candidate imaginable to sign up for a 10-year stint as Federal Bureau of Investigation director. "So we want to get back and keep on the track that we're on". "I think there's a lot of people on both sides of the aisle that are looking for someone that doesn't come from the political realm, somebody frankly in the tradition of Mueller, who has a real history in enforcing the law - not somebody who has spent time in the partisan realm".

"Joe Lieberman has more experience than all of my Democratic colleagues combined. But we need a law enforcement professional, not someone who's run for office before", McCaskill said.

A graduate of Yale Law School, Lieberman served as Connecticut's Attorney General from 1983 to 1989 before launching his career in the U.S. Senate.

But Lieberman lost his senate seat to a primary challenger in 2006, and he ran as an independent to retain his seat.

Lieberman retired from the Senate in 2011, and since then has been a senior counsel at the NY law firm Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman LLP.

But he told NBC Connecticut that Trump's victory is a result of people's dissatisfaction with Washington. He has no federal law enforcement experience and, while now at a high-profile law firm, is most associated as a centrist Democrat. Lieberman appeared with DeVos at her Senate hearing, even introducing her with words of praise.

Trump also met with former Oklahoma Gov. The White House says President Donald Trump was to interview four potential candidates to l.
