Joe Lieberman gives a "thumbs-up" as he leaves the West Wing of the White House in Washington, Wednesday, May 17, 2017. Ryan said Congress "can't deal with speculation and innuendo" and m. The former CT senator flashed a thumbs-up as he left the White House after the interview Wednesday, saying he and Trump had a "good meeting". First, at exactly a moment when the political atmosphere is toxic and when the prior director was widely criticized for appearing to tip the political scales in the midst of a national election, this is precisely not the time to hire for the very first time an Federal Bureau of Investigation director whose background is largely elective/political.

It's not news that President Trump is capable of choosing unlikely appointees for important positions - though, as he might put it, some, I assume, are good people.

Since leaving the Senate, Lieberman has worked as an attorney for the NY law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres, whose founding partner, Marc Kasowitz, is Trump's lawyer on litigation issues.

Joe Lieberman endorsed Howard Dean over John Kerry in the 2004 presidential primary.

However another answer on that subject seemed both more specific and perhaps ambiguous.

"Believe me - there's no collusion". Trump said Thursday that he respected Mueller's appointment, but he denounced the probe as a "witch hunt".

The New York Times reported Friday that Trump told the Russians that recently fired FBI Director James Comey was a "nut job" whose ouster relieved "great pressure" on him. "So we want to get back and keep on the track that we're on".

McCabe became acting director following Comey's dismissal May 9.

SCOTT HORSLEY, BYLINE: Trump held that meeting with foreign minister Sergey Lavrov just one day after he had abruptly fired Jim Comey.

Trump criticized Comey for a recent performance testifying to Congress and said Comey's replacement is "going to be outstanding". "And then on top of that, after the Wednesday performance by Director Comey, you had a person come and have to readjust the record, which many people have never seen before, because there were misstatements made".
