Trump to interview Pistole for Federal Bureau of Investigation director


Former FBI director James B. Comey is expected to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee next Thursday at 10 a.m., the committee announced Thursday. If his testimony backs up those notes, it will add fuel to the investigation into whether or not Donald Trump abused his presidential powers by the FBI's investigation into Russia's 2016 election interference.

Former FBI deputy director and TSA boss John Pistole, now a university president, is in the running for James Comey's vacant seat, the White House said Tuesday.

Comey is expected to validate reports that surfaced in the wake of his May 9 dismissal that Trump suggested Comey drop his investigation of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Although final details about Comey's testimony have not been worked out, a source told CNN it could come as early as the start of June. According to Lichtblau, Comey and Bob Mueller have been discussing the parameters that would govern what he can and cannot say during his testimony, in order to not interfere with any ongoing criminal investigations with the public testimony.

But later in the day, the White House showed it was beginning to offload the Russian Federation crisis to Trump's longtime personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz.

However, Comey's firing did not put a stop to the scandals plaguing the Trump administration but rather added to fuel to the fire. Former White House staffer Boris Epshteyn confirmed he has been contacted for information as part of the House investigation.

The New York Times reported that seven days after he was inaugurated, Trump asked Comey if he could pledge his 'loyalty'.

People close to Comey have said he wants to clear his name through public testimony.

Trump is still on the hunt for a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director three weeks after he fired James Comey.

Trump has called the Russian Federation probe a witch hunt and denied any wrongdoing.

The intelligence community said earlier this year with "high confidence" that Russian Federation interfered in last year's election in Trump's favor against Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton.

"No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly", Trump said when the media got after the Comey bombshell with a vengeance, unleashing scoops by the dozen, courtesy the leaky vessels of Washington D.C.
