Trump interviews 4 candidates to post of FBI director

Trump interviews 4 candidates to post of FBI director

Lieberman served as Connecticut's US senator for 24 years, retiring in 2013.

Lieberman, originally a Democrat and later an independent, was not always Trump's top pick, either. He retired from office in 2012.

McFeely, 55, would enter the job amid tumult surrounding ongoing investigations into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign had any role in that effort.

He introduced Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, at her confirmation hearing in January before a Senate panel, lavishing praise on the controversial nominee.

Anything less will call Trump's decision to fire Comey further into question, and raise even more concerns about the ability of the FBI to investigate properly.

Late past year, Lieberman public defended David Friedman, Trump's pick for US ambassador to Israel, over comments that Friedman had made about some Jewish-American leaders.

Lieberman gave reporters a thumbs-up as he left the White House on Wednesday and said he and President Trump had a "good meeting".

As far as Lieberman's independence, that may be suspect as well. They include U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy and U.S. Sen. But Trump said Saturday that he would act quickly to appoint a successor.

The meetings come more than a week after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. David Friedman, now the ambassador to Israel, works at the firm as a partner. Now he's senior counsel with Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman, a law firm that has often represented Trump in defamation suits.

Could Lieberman do the job, though?

Lieberman told Slate in June 2016 that he would support a "security test" - not a "religious test" - on immigrants coming into the country.

McCain's comments about Lieberman came after Desjardins said she asked the Arizona Senator about Democrats criticizing Lieberman for a lack of experience related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
