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.

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".
