New FBI boss could be revealed next week

New FBI boss could be revealed next week

"And I think, as well, our institutions are under assault internally".

Trump's visible anger and erratic tweets prompted a reporter to ask Spicer on Friday if the president was "out of control".

Though Trump appeared to defend his team, saying that as an "active president", "perfect accuracy" would be too much to expect from his staff, he has apparently not been pleased with the results.

Trump is considering 11 people to replace Comey, a White House official said.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican who said he is open to the idea of a special prosecutor, was more emphatic.

Testifying before the Senate obviously wouldn't fall into the category of "leaking to the press" - at least not ususally, but you never know with Trump. John Cornyn of Texas.

Former Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., who chaired the House Intelligence Committee while in Congress, also met with Sessions and Rosenstein. Rogers chaired the House intelligence committee; Cornyn is the Senate's No. 2 Republican.

Mr Comey promised only that he could be honest, The New York Times reported. The FBI and Congress are investigating Russian meddling in the presidential election and any ties to the Trump campaign.

A Morning Consult/Politico poll conducted last week found that 62% of Republicans and just 16% of Democrats thought Trump was right to fire Comey, while 58% of Republicans and just 9% of Democrats told NBC they approved of Trump's decision. Furthermore, said the Times, Spicer has "failed to use the self-protective tools that savvier Trump aides have adopted". "Nearly all of them are very well-known", Trump said of the candidates before Air Force One took off for Lynchburg, Virginia, where he gave the commencement address at Liberty University. "Almost all of (the candidates) are very well-known. And that's what we want for the FBI", Trump said.

President Donald Trump speaks to members of the media aboard Air Force One before his departure from Andrews Air Force Base, Md., Saturday, May 13, 2017.

Schiller was among those Trump consulted about Comey and was tapped by the president to deliver a letter informing the director of his firing.

During his press briefing on Monday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said there is no need for a special prosecutor to look into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

The White House had no immediate comment and no White House aide appeared on the Sunday news shows, leaving Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, to defend Trump.

Democrats are threatening to stall the hearings on a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director unless Rosenstein agrees to name a special counsel (to replace himself in overseeing the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into Russian interference in the election).

So far 14 people - politicians, lawyers and law enforcement officials among them - have emerged as candidates.

The White House said in a statement that Comey was terminated and removed from office based on "the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions". John Corny of Texas, former congressman Mike Rogers of MI and acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Several candidates were interviewed on Saturday, including New York Court of Appeals Associate Judge and former prosecutor Michael Garcia. She is a professor at Harvard's Kennedy School, a former assistant secretary of Homeland Security in the Obama administration, host of the national security podcast The SCIF and founder of Kayyem Solutions, a security consulting firm.
