Trump to head overseas without announcing new Federal Bureau of Investigation director

Like so many of Trump's picks, a Lieberman nomination would no doubt carry some controversy. The president departs Friday on his inaugural overseas trip, a four-country, five-stop journey tour of the Middle East and Europe that will keep him out of the country for more than a week.

Joe Lieberman gives a "thumbs-up" as he leaves the West Wing of the White House in Washington, Wednesday, May 17, 2017.

Republicans, by contrast, praised Lieberman. Sen.

Lieberman was first elected to the Senate in 1988.

According to Politico, Trump met with Lieberman on Wednesday and "bonded" with him. Comey was sacked by President Donald Trump last week.

"I hope I don't nix his chances here, but I hope that the president would select Joe", McCain told MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

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

Former Connecticut senator Joe Lieberman, a candidate for Federal Bureau of Investigation director, walks out of the West Wing after a meeting at the White House on May 17.

The FBI director serves a 10-year term. "Or who's campaigned for president". "He has great respect and affection from both sides of the aisle".

"This appointment is so important that we should try to insist on someone who has no political background", Sen.

Ethics aside, Pattis predicted that Lieberman will not be picked, for political reasons - "given the superheated political climate", in which Trump may want to take care to avoid even the appearance of a conflict.

Lieberman told The Hartford Courant he was secretly considered for jobs under former President George W. Bush before he left the Senate in 2013. His seat was won by Sen.

Mr Lieberman served in the Senate for more than two decades and was the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2000 with Al Gore, then the sitting vice president.

In the 1990s, Democrats insisted that independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who investigated former President Bill Clinton, overstepped his authority.

Since retiring from the Senate in 2013, Lieberman has worked for the NY law firm, Kasowitz Benson Torres and Friedman that has included Trump as a client.

In other words, that personal pledge to protect Trump above all else? And asked if Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-independent senator from CT was his top pick, Trump said yes.

Joe Lieberman endorsed Howard Dean over John Kerry in the 2004 presidential primary. He also publicly disagreed with Trump's so-called Muslim ban.

The ACLU said Thursday it has "serious concerns" about Lieberman, who has supported expansive surveillance power for the government. The position is open after the chief executive abruptly fired the previous FBI director, James Comey, allegedly out of frustration with the agency's ongoing investigation of Trump officials' ties to the Russian Federation.

Several possible candidates besides Cornyn said they were not interested in the job. A day earlier, Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of SC also said he didn't want to be considered.
