After what seems like a number of goofs related to the firing of James Comey, President Trump is no doubt anxious to divert the conversation away from the weeks events. Late this Friday evening, it was announced that the first 4 candidates to take over Mr. Comey’s position as FBI Director, will begin THIS Saturday morning.
The four candidates scheduled to be interviewed this Saturday are:
- Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher.
Assistant AG Alice Fisher previously worked in the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.
- The current acting FBI Director, Andrew McCabe.
Acting FBI Director McCabe recently testified before Congress taking a lot of questions regarding possible collusion between President Trump’s Campaign and the Russians.
- Texas Senator John Cornyn
Senator Cornyn previously served as the Attorney General for the great State of Texas and now serves as the Majority Whip in the Senate and sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
- Judge Michael J Garcia of the New York Court of Appeals.
Judge Garcia previously served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York.
There are another 8 or 9 candidates comprised of well known current and former law enforcement officers being considered to replace Mr. Comey as the FBI Director.
Among the other names reported to be under consideration are:
- Representative Trey Gowdy, Republican Congressman from South Carolina.
