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

President Donald Trump meets with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, Thursday, May 18, 2017. "Look where he works now, a Trump law firm", Brown said, referring to Lieberman's job as senior counsel at the firm Kasowitz, Benson, Torres and Friedman. The former CT senator flashed a thumbs-up as he left the White House on Wednesday after meeting with Trump and said they had a "good meeting". Frank Keating and Andrew McCabe, now the bureau's acting director.

McCabe became acting director following the May 9 firing of Comey. The American people don't care about petty political battles over a decade ago-they care about having a responsible person leading the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In January, he said he wasn't surprised that Trump delivered on his campaign promise to restrict the travel of people from some terrorism hotspots to the US.

Trump came under criticism for firing Comey as he was supervising the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 United States election and any possible links between the Trump and Russian Federation during the campaign.

Republicans were largely supportive of the idea of having Lieberman run the FBI. Sen. Joe Lieberman was among the candidates.

Rape inquiry dropped, WikiLeaks' Assange remains in embassy
Per E Samuelson, Assange's lawyer in Sweden, told AP that it was a "day of victory" for the WikiLeaks founder. She said that the abandonment of Assange's pursuit was not a statement of whether or not he was guilty.

Lieberman may be best remembered as former Vice President Al Gore's running mate during the 2000 presidential election and his time as a senator from CT.

President Donald Trump may be seriously miscalculating how much support former Sen. Lieberman testified in support of Sessions at his January confirmation hearing.

Lieberman a 75-year-old an Orthodox Jew, was the Democratic nominee for vice president in 2000, the first Jewish candidate on a presidential ticket.

After losing the Democratic primary in his 2006 reelection bid, Lieberman left the party and mounted a bid as an Independent, winning the three-way race by 10 percentage points.

The group's cargo operations moved back into the black with a $S3m operating profit as freight carriage grew by 5.9 per cent. Revenue fell $S89m as cargo yield slid 10.7 per cent but expenditure fell a higher $S142m due mainly to lower fuel costs.

Lieberman spoke at the 2008 Republican National Convention on behalf of his friend, Arizona Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and [Lindsey] Graham - the trio were known as the "three amigos" - tilted the Senate in a more hawkish direction during the first four years of Obama's presidency. He has served as co-chairman of No Labels, a centrist group that promotes bipartisanship. He was the lead agent on the Oklahoma City federal building bombing case in 1995, when Keating was governor, and he was the FBI's on-scene commander after the September 11, 2001, attack on the Pentagon.

Gore eventually lost to President George W. Bush in a contest settled by the Supreme Court. In congressional testimony last week, he notably said that he has seen "no effort to impede our investigation to date".

At the time of his removal, Comey was overseeing the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 U.S.election and possible collusion between the Trump camp and Russian Federation during the campaign.

Several other candidates have withdrawn from consideration: Rep. Trey Gowdy of SC and Sen. John Cornyn and New York Judge Michael Garcia, who both withdrew their names.
