Trump: ‘We Can Make a Fast Decision’ on Choosing New FBI Director

Aboard Air Force One this morning, President Donald Trump told reporters that “we can make a fast decision” on choosing a new FBI director.

Multiple news outlets are reporting on the same shortlist of people being interviewed for the post:

  • Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe
  • Senator John Cornyn (R- Texas)
  • Former Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher
  • New York Court of Appeals Judge Michael Garcia

The president today said he has a list of “outstanding people that are very well-known.”

He expects the process to go “quickly” and they may possibly even announce the pick before Trump’s first overseas trip next week.
