WASHINGTON - Joe Lieberman seems to have the best cards to follow the fired FBI director James Comey. The former senator made a positive impression on President Donald Trump, saying sources against CNN.
Trump and the old senator sat at the table on Wednesday. The president announced a day later to be able to choose a new FBI director. 'I'm very close,' said Trump Thursday. He did not hesitate which candidate is preferred.
The 75-year-old Lieberman was the running mate of Democrat Al Gore in 2000, who lost the presidential election of George W. Bush. Lieberman is not undividedly popular among the Democrats: in 2008 he supported Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
