Mr. Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with Lieberman at the White House on Wednesday. Sen.

"This is a moment where we need a law enforcement professional that's never campaigned for a presidential candidate, never campaigned for office, never worn a party label to head the FBI", McCaskill said.

Trump told reporters at the White House on Thursday that he was "very close" to announcing his pick.

Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One on the trip back to Washington after Mr. Trump's remarks at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in CT, press secretary Sean Spicer said the other two candidates Mr. Trump will meet with are former Federal Bureau of Investigation official Richard McFeely and former Oklahoma Gov.

Lieberman's law enforcement experience stems from his two-term tenure as Connecticut's attorney general, spanning from 1983 until his resignation in 1989 when he was elected to the U.S. Senate. Trump has not signaled that anyone else has replaced Lieberman as his top preference since then.

One source told Politico that Trump bonded with Lieberman in their interview for the position, and he was leaning towards the him in the immediate aftermath. Trump said Thursday that he respected Mueller's appointment, but he denounced the probe as a "witch hunt".

Several other candidates have withdrawn from consideration.

"Trump's doings are on the FBI's plate right now".

Mr. Keating said that some of Mr. Trump's ideas, like scrutinizing people who enter the country, were sound, but that he was unsure he could support the presumptive Republican nominee.

Trump's choice must win Senate confirmation amid the Justice Department's investigation into Russia's election hacking and the Trump campaign's possible involvement. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, said Lieberman "may be the only potential nominee that could get 100 votes that I know of".

"Some Senate Democrats hold a grudge against Lieberman for his rightward turn and opposition to some of President Barack Obama's agenda late in his Senate career", Politico's Burgess Everett and Seung Min Kim wrote Thursday.

Siri vs Google Assistant on the iPhone
Google Assistant can't tap into those features , although you can search for Apple Music songs and it will send you to that app. Altogether, unless you are deeply in the Google ecosystem, using Google Assistant on the iPhone is a pain compared to Siri.

Lieberman became an independent after CT voters defeated him in a Democratic primary, largely a result of his support of the Iraq war. He also disputed the administration's characterization of the Russian Federation investigation.
