Trump to interview Pistole for Federal Bureau of Investigation director

06 Juin, 2017, 11:57 | Author: Marc Bacque
  • FBI Director James Comey listens on Capitol Hill in Washington. Comey's memo relating President Donald Trump’s request to shut down an investigation of his ousted national security adviser is a powe

Richard Burr, the North Carolina Republican who chairs the committee, says the committee would welcome Comey's testimony.

Trump, picking up where he left off with his search for a new Federal Bureau of Investigation chief, invited former Transportation Security Administration (TSA) chief John Pistole, and former head of the Justice Department's criminal division under former President George W. Bush, Chris Wray, to the White House for consideration.

Former FBI deputy director and TSA boss John Pistole, now a university president, is in the running for James Comey's vacant seat, the White House said Tuesday.

The House committee also issued subpoenas for records and testimony from Cohen and his firm, Michael D. Cohen & Associates.

The president blasted the probes online as a 'witch hunt, ' in just his latest attack on the investigations.

Comey could appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee as soon as next week; however, the details have not been finalized.

Jadwat concluded with what amounted to, more or less, the mirror image of the concern Conway expressed about Trump's tweets . It also exempted green card holders and people with valid visas from the travel pause, but was still blocked in courts.


Any statements Comey makes about conversations with the president could cut to the heart of whether or not he tried to interfere with an FBI investigation, something that can be a crime if it amounts to obstruction of justice.

Trump said days after firing Comey that he had been thinking about "this Russian Federation thing" when he fired him.

If it's found to be true that Trump asked Comey to drop the FBI's investigation into Flynn, "that would be very damaging", Keith Whittington, an expert on presidential impeachment and a politics professor at Princeton University, told Business Insider earlier this month.

Mueller's team is expected to include Andrew Weissmann, a longtime DOJ and FBI veteran who helped spearhead the government's prosecutions involving Enron and multiple Mafia crime families, according to two sources who are closely tracking the unfolding investigation. Page has called out "false narratives" of any inappropriate Russian Federation contacts. "I was going to fire Comey knowing there was no good time to do it", Trump told NBC News the week of the firing. "He's happy to testify, and he's happy to cooperate."Another source also opened up to Politico about the case, confirming that Comey's testimony can come as early as next week".

Spicer declined to provide a short list for the position, telling reporters that when Trump "feels as though he's met with the right candidate he'll let us know".

On Wednesday, a White House spokesman said all future questions regarding the Russian Federation matter would be handled by Trump's personal attorney.
