The White House says President Donald Trump will be interviewing four p. Frank Keating, a Republican, and former Sen. Joseph Lieberman departs the White House after meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump May 17, 2017 in Washington, DC.
The choice of a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director will be closely scrutinised with the administration thrown into turmoil by a succession of stunning allegations against Trump, most damagingly that he may have obstructed justice by asking now sacked Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey to drop a probe into one of his top advisors.
An announcement could come Friday, the soft deadline Trump set for himself.
Earlier in the day, Trump said that Lieberman was near the top of the list of candidates for the post.

Lieberman, originally a Democrat and later an independent, was not always Trump's top pick, either.

"I was disappointed because the president of the United States had just confessed to engaging in an extramarital affair with a young woman in his employ and to willfully deceiving the nation about his conduct", Lieberman said, later adding, "The implications for our country are so serious that I feel a responsibility to my constituents in CT, as well as to my conscience, to voice my concerns forthrightly and publicly". "Everybody likes and respects Joe Lieberman".
But several Democratic senators said during a caucus lunch Thursday that they would not support Lieberman, according to a person familiar with the meeting who declined to be identified because the lunch was private.
Trump interviewed Lieberman personally on Wednesday afternoon.
Fourth, Lieberman clearly is being considered as an answer for immediate crisis of sorts, with thoughts of who can inspire widespread political acceptance for the current circumstances - but what is needed is for somebody to be chosen without regard to the Russia-related investigation or for today's headlines, but instead chosen for aptitude with the broad range of FBI responsibilities over the long haul.
Trump met with his legal team Thursday, a day after a special prosecutor was named in the Russian Federation probe, according to Politico. Lieberman added that McFarland "and General Mike Flynn will form a very strong leadership team at the National Security Council".
Lieberman retired from the U.S. Senate in January 2013.
Lieberman was also former Vice President Al Gore's running mate in the 2000 election. Despite being labeled a moderate squish by other Democrats, when Lieberman ran for president 2004 and dropped out, he later endorsed liberal alternative Howard Dean over John Kerry. He did not seek re-election in 2012.
