Joe Lieberman was quite, at least media-wise, during the last election 'process'. He apparently wasn't anti-Trump nor pro-Hillary to warrant any ink that I'm aware of.

Next, Lieberman did leave the Democrat Party for reasons I'm unaware of-also not expounded upon by the MSM. Yes, he was labelled a 'moderate' by the new leaders of the democrat party. An 'old school' democrat, as they say. He did win re-election as an independent which indicates strong local support in his riding. He did usually vote with the democrats, but was much more pro-Israel than the Obama administration. Beyond that, I'm unaware of the real reasons for his departure from the Democrat party.

Many label him as 'honest'. I can buy into that one with the modifier that 'honest' within the frame of reference of a career, professional politician..


So why put him on the list?? One thought that comes to mind is it would be much more difficult for the MSM to attack the Trump Administration if it was Lieberman that announced sufficient evidence to warrant indictments on members of the previous administration.

This might forestall an 'over-reaction' by those at a more 'base level' of the democrat party's grass roots....


Bottom line is this appointment may indicate a major move to drain the swamp!

Just a possibility, I admit. An intriguing one, yes?

I believe the main concern of Democrats to Lieberman's appointment is that he lacks a law enforcement background. In my experience a good leader can run any organization because it is the integrity and commitment that makes a good leader not a knowledge of the organization. If Joe is surrounded by the right people then he will do great in the role as FBI director.

Appointing Lieberman isn't a drain the swamp thing... Seriously? How is it draining the swamp to tap a career politician who endorsed Hillary Clinton as Director of the FBI?

Trump is trying to placate the Democrats while at the same time the GOP is quietly running away from him. Selecting Lieberman for this job is a giant mistake. We need someone with law enforcement/prosecutor experience to head up the FBI, not a god damn 75 year old retired politician.

I would rather see a rank and file agent get the job before a politician, especially Joe Lieberman. He's a dual citizen with Israel, and older than dirt. His FBI career would potentially last until he turned 85 years old. It's totally ridiculous.

Hey, it was just a thought. It wasn't burned in stone..


Besides, it not a 10 year gig. This will work soon or it won't work at all....draining the swamp, that is.

The FBI Director's position is a ten year appointment assuming the Senate approves of who ever captain orange manbaby chooses.

lieberman works for Kasowitz Benson Torres & Friedman, who happens to have been representing Trump since 2001...




Senator Joseph I. Lieberman applies the investigative skills he honed as United States Senator and Attorney General of the State of Connecticut to represent clients in independent and internal investigations and advise them on a wide range of public policy, strategic and regulatory issues. As a seasoned leader who is skilled in the art of facilitating mutually beneficial and strategic agreements, Senator Lieberman also assists corporate clients on tax, health care, security and intellectual property matters. In addition, he counsels clients on international expansion initiatives and business plans.

Prior to joining Kasowitz, Senator Lieberman, the Democratic Vice-Presidential nominee in 2000, served 24 years in the United States Senate, retiring in January 2013 following the end of his fourth term. During his tenure, Senator Lieberman helped shape legislation in virtually every major area of public policy including national and homeland security, foreign policy, fiscal policy, environmental protection, human rights, health care, trade, energy, cyber security and taxes. He served in many leadership roles including as chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs, which is the Senate's major oversight and investigative committee. On that Committee, Senator Lieberman led numerous congressional investigations, including investigations into Enron’s collapse, the federal government’s response to Hurricane Katrina, the Fort Hood mass shooting, and most recently the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya.

www.kasowitz.com...





Kasowitz has represented Trump for at least 15 years, including during the restructuring of more than $1 billion in debt for Trump’s Atlantic City casinos. The firm also represented Trump when media giants, including the Times, sought to unseal documents from Trump’s 1990 divorce with Ivana Trump. A Manhattan Supreme Court judge rejected that request last month.

Drain the swamp? Shows you know very little about this political system. This guy is an insurance industry lackey.

He alone stopped the implementation of a good health insurance bill under Obama and because of him we got flimsy Obamacare.


Do some research next time!

Trump is just trying to calm the FBI rank and file that hate his guts. Comey was their man and they will ignore Lieberman. Comey will be testifying soon....Now Trumps gone...beautiful irony. The way Trump fired Comey will come back to haunt him...believe me.

Trump didn't drain any swamp, but he sure as hell pissed off the snakes and gators.

This is a Republican administration. NO liberal democrats should be anywhere near it. They can wait until 2032 for their next chance.

Nope, no conflict of interest. You want conflict of interest? Try our political system with it's quid pro quos. None ever in writing. Deals, 'compromises', flip flops....on and on. Business, on the other hand, is in writing, to a large extent which your post points out.. Law firms, the vast majority, are heavily beholden to the democrat party. Outside of family, who else is there that develops a relationship with. History and yes, trust.

Oh, I don't know, I guess it doesn’t matter Lieberman is another sop to the deep state from Trump.



Liebermann is the epitome of the swamp. He is a Zionist more loyal to Israel than he is to the American people. He’s from Connecticut the insurance capital of the world…He was their senator

??? a large number of republicans in washington ARE LAWYERS!! this statement is complete nonsense?

but okay, let's say that they place leiberman in the position, he quits working for this lawfirm. I suppose you can't foresee a time when his old boss.... trump's lawyer who just may be chosen to represent him in the russia collusion mess, might need to contact his ex-empoyee with questions regarding cases he oversaw?

You could make that claim to anyone who knows anyone. The political parties, themselves, are more guilty of this than anyone. Late night bill passages, last minute amendments for funds vote for my bill and I'll vote for yours. Party whips.

The connections inside both parties are mind-blowing and you know it. I'm neither for nor against Lieberman. The democrat party is full of 'Jews' which you label Zionists. Conn. is insurance. N.Y. is wall street. Texas is oil. There's no getting away from it. Selective usage of it is an insult to intelligence.

So who would you recommend for the job?

P.S. lots of lawyers. Not lots of BIG law firms. Big difference.

thanks for answering my question, I was wondering what qualifications he has to run the FBI, apparently the answer is NONE.
so, this would just be another political appointment of someone who is unqualified to hold the position.That certainly is a strange way of draining the swamp, it looks more like business as usual.

If this is a 'republican Administration', why isn't the 'republicans' backing Trump?

It's a Trump Administration...despite every effort by the republicans and democrats to make it otherwise....and continue to do so.

I doubt if you could find any post here on ATS where I even used the word zionist!! outside of this one your are reading right here! so don't tell me what I call the jews, I don't call them anything!
the FBI isn't supposed to be influenced by politics, so all you have to say about the politicians is really not that relevant, is it?
my gripe is that you seem to think that it's perfectly okay for trump to put someone in the FBI to oversee an investigation that he is connected to that has been working for the company that is his legal representation in of his legal matters.
it would be kind of like having a law firm represent both the husband and wife in a divorce hearing..

who would I recommend?? gee I don't know, let's find someone who's worked in the field, who's had the leaks published in the papers blow their covers, who knows that at the other end of some these silly games the politicians like to play, there are real men and women lives at risk, be they holding an fbi badge, a cia, or whatever.
