Who hires the FBI Director? The President? Jeff Sessions? Other?



I don't think it matters much in an administration that is on burrowed time anyway.


"burrowed time"?
I think I know what you meant... it's nice to see liberals celebrating before a win is in... reminds of that wonderful night on Nov 8th

Yep, I blew that one...

You rubbed it in my face pretty good. I'm still having a great time watching Trump self destruct.
I think you can see it too...just to proud to admit it. And I admire your loyalty, though misplaced a bit.

Politics...an amusing diversion while I work on other projects.

Politicians should not run intelligence/law enforcement agencies.

Say what you want about Comey, he made a mistake by making a public statement regarding the Clinton emails. Regardless, he always tried to protect the FBI from politics.

What the hell is Trump thinking? If he's trying to throw Dems some kind of bone I see it backfiring pretty much immediately. Aside from that? Joe Lieberman is old as dirt and retired. I would be surprised if he even wanted to take the job.

The weirdness just never ends.


Your absolutely right.

The job is designed for a lawyer who has law enforcement experience, not a political hack.

Trump is so ignorant, this is another example of it, him trying to hire a politician to run the FBI, something avoided in the past because it’s a law enforcement job not a political sop job.

Even the Liebermann pick is an example of Trump’s ignorance. He probably doesn’t even know Lieberman is very close to one of his arch enemies, John McCain.

Of course, it won't because Lieberman wasn't left enough for the Democrats.


I don't want a FBI director that is left or right...

Lieberman's failing is not that he is not left enough...he is not bright enough..And he has zero backbone..

he is kind of like putty...

We don't need a politician as FBI Director...We need the opposite..

If you define "independent" as stay in the middle and see where the wind blows..

And that is why I don't like him. I know is more people out there qualified enough to take the job.

Darn I don't mind Mueller coming back again to work for the FBI and clean the house.

Unfortunately...multiple better choices refused the offer thus far. No one wants to be in the middle of a # storm of daily tweeted, self-inflicted controversy..

It's a side-effect of Trump Drama...can't recruit AAA talent..

It reminds me of how odd it is that you are UK, not even ex-pat, yet are pre-occupied with defending Trump.

I don't think Mueller cares he is taking a very important task and he is up to it.

He could become a target of leaks too.

If he's an independent, then why did he run for President in 2004 on the Democrat's ticket?

But don't worry, he won't be appointed. I would think people would be able to see through Trump's antics, like pretending he might appoint Romney as SOS. He did that to humiliate him.

If that Texas Senator hadn't backed out, it would have been him for sure. I'm surprised he's not putting Cruz in there.
Or maybe Palin. lol.

That's bad news. It would amount to Israel running the FBI

Well, you nailed that!

Isn't Smokin' Joe Lieberman a dual citizen with Israel, or did he have to scrap that part to run for president?
Maybe Trump is trying to smooth one over with the Israelis over the whole telling Russians that the Israelis have an operative in ISIS?

Either way, it shouldn't happen.

I think it might change things. For one, appointing a democrat reeks of innocence every bit as much as firing Comey reeked of guilt.

If he's truly innocent, this would be an incredibly smart move. Surprisingly smart, really.

No. appointing a Democrat reeks of seeking some favoritism. Appointing a politician to an intelligence position also reeks of seeking favoritism. If he was concerned with doing what was best for the country he would tap someone like Sheriff David Clarke for the job, or at least someone with an FBI or LE background.
