Lindsey Graham: Trump Needs to 'Back Off' Russian Investigation, Stop Tweeting

President Donald Trump talks to reporters during a meeting with Dr. Henry Kissinger, former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor under President Richard Nixon, in the Oval Office of the White House, Wednesday, May 10, 2017, in Washington.

Trump went on to tell Holt that the Russian Federation investigation "should have been over with a long time ago" and that Comey's continued focus on Russian Federation showed "he's the wrong man for that position" as FBI director.

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe also interviewed for the permanent post despite his repeated willingness to break from White House explanations of Comey's ouster and its characterizations of the Russian Federation investigation.

US President Donald Trump said Saturday that "we can make a fast decision" on a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director, adding it could be done by the end of next week.

"The truth is the dismissal of Director Comey is part of a much longer pattern of this administration's interfering with or removing the people who are in a position to conduct an independent investigation of the president and his administration", said Senator Schumer.

Trump said the candidates to replace Comey were "outstanding people" and "very well known". "Donald Trump suddenly decides that Comey must be fired at once".

"I think the President wants loyalty to his country and to the rule of law", Spicer said.

The first candidate to arrive was Alice Fisher, a high-ranking Justice Department official in the George W. Bush administration.

The broadcaster quoted its source familiar with the matter as saying of the dinner between Comey and Trump on January 27 that it came at Trump's request and was one-on-one.

Rogers, an ex-FBI agent and former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has drawn the backing of the FBI Agents Association.
