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

Lieberman's selection as a vice presidential candidate was the first time a Jewish person was on a major party's presidential ticket.

Sen. John McCain Thursday called on President Donald Trump to pick former Sen. "That tells me a lot", said Sen. And asked if Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-independent senator from CT was his top pick, Trump said yes. "I know of no one who people had genuine affection for the way that they have for Joe Lieberman".

But the idea of having Lieberman replace Comey did not engender much enthusiasm among Senate Democrats.

On Wednesday, Trump met with Lieberman, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating, and former top FBI official Richard McFeely. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said it was a "mistake" to nominate him. "He has great respect and affection from both sides of the aisle". It could be a particularly effective administrator from elsewhere in law enforcement.

Lieberman has run for a number of political jobs, including, unsuccessfully, president of the United States. John Cornyn of Texas, both Republicans; Alice Fisher, the former head of the Justice Department's criminal division; and Michael Garcia, a former US attorney from Manhattan.

Since leaving office, Lieberman, a former CT attorney general, has taken a post as senior counsel at the New York-based law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres and Friedman LLP. After losing the Senate primary in part because of Connecticut Democrats' betrayal and unwillingness to support a so-called moderate, Lieberman ran as an Independent and won by 10 percentage points.

The former Democratic vice presidential nominee now works at the law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres in NY - the same firm as Trump's attorney Marc Kasowitz. During the 2016 presidential election, he endorsed former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The meetings come a day after news broke that Trump allegedly asked Comey in February to drop the FBI's investigation into his former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Trump has used the law firm many times in the past-including a legal battle with an author who claimed Trump was not a billionaire, according to the Washington Post.

During the transition, Lieberman visited at least twice with the president at Trump Tower in New York City. He also publicly disagreed with Trump's so-called Muslim ban. Joe Lieberman is 75 years old.

Senate Democrats said Thursday they won't accept a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director with a political background, which would seem to rule out former Oklahoma Gov.

Several possible candidates besides Cornyn said they were not interested in the job.
