Interviews well underway for new FBI director

17 Mai, 2017, 10:56 | Author: Cyril Hebras

Lindsey Graham on Sunday advised the president to stop talking or tweeting about the ongoing investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

"I think the process is going to go quickly", said Trump, before delivering the commencement address at Liberty University in Virginia.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn of Texas, center, flanked by Sen. Graham called Cornyn a "wonderful man". The FBI has never had a female director. "But these are not normal circumstances".

"The founding fathers in their genius created a system of co-equal branches of government and a built-in system of checks and balances, and I feel as though that is under assault and is eroding", Clapper said.

What it is, however, is the president following sound advice from a serious, credentialed, and experienced leader, in whom he has entrusted great responsibility.

The Senate Judiciary Committee will get the first chance to examine the president's pick for the job.

Only 29 percent of Americans say they approve of U.S. President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, while 38 percent disapprove and another 32 percent don't have enough to say on the matter, according to a new poll released Sunday. But the president's account does not match the recollection of someone who interacted with Comey shortly before the Federal Bureau of Investigation director dined with Trump at the White House.

TODD: Let me put up that tweet where the president put the word tapes in, we don't know quite what that means. but did - did you think that constituted a threat to Comey?

Drawing parallels to what was widely viewed as a long-shot bid by Mr Trump for the presidency, he urged the more than 18,000 graduates to fight for what they believe in and to "challenge entrenched interests and failed power structures". "You can't be cute about tapes".

"The reason that's really interesting is because if there is a tape, and the conversation went anything like the president says it did, where they're talking about if he's under investigation Well, that tape, now that he's talked about it, is fair game for being subpoenaed". Russian Federation denies the claims.

Asked if the decision or an announcement could take place before he leaves for Saudi Arabia on Friday, Trump said: "Even that is possible". "The bottom line", he said, "is I don't know if there was collusion, political collusion".

Trump has cited Clapper's past statements as evidence that his campaign did not collude with the Russians.

Later, however, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Trump had actually been considering firing Comey for months, and that he had asked Sessions and Rosenstein for their recommendations. "He should do that".

Democrats accused him of interfering with the FBI's probe into Trump campaign links to Russian Federation campaign interference, doubling down on calls for a special counsel to investigate.

Comey's replacement should not be a current elected official, but someone who "comes from within the ranks or has such a reputation that has no political background at all that can go into the job on day one", he said.

Warner and other Democrats also questioned the involvement of Attorney General Jeff Sessions in interviewing candidates to replace Comey.

"There are a lot of Democrats who feel that way", Schumer said on CNN. "I was thinking about it then".

In January, after news broke that the Justice Department's inspector general had opened an investigation into how the FBI director "handled the probe of Hillary Clinton's email practices", I suggested that it would probably be best for Comey to resign.
