Former TSA boss among candidates for FBI director

Pistole is in Washington for an interview this afternoon, USA Today reports, citing a former longtime Washington colleague of Pistole's.

Early Wednesday morning, the president tweeted "Witch Hunt!" in reference to testimony by Comey and former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan before Congress on the topic.

The White House claimed the president fired Comey for his mishandling of the Clinton email investigation, at the behest of memos from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Earlier this month, Trump had interviewed four different men, and from those former senator Joseph I. Lieberman emerged as a front-runner - though he soon withdrew his own name from consideration.

Joe Lieberman, who on May 25 told the White House that he was not interested in the post.

Comey's appearance would come as Mueller's investigation and staff is starting to take shape.

Pistole was named former director Robert Mueller's deputy in 2004 after he ran the bureau's counterterrorism division after the 9/11 attacks. He'll have to deal with the struggle by congressional Republicans to patch together a politically unpopular healthcare bill, a government with scores of high-level vacancies and a White House racked by dissension and leaks.

A representative of Anderson University said Pistole was not available for comment Tuesday, and Wray did not immediately return an email message seeking comment.
