US President Donald Trump to nominate new FBI chief

Published on 14 May 2017, 0:24
The US president says he plans to move quickly and nominate a new FBI director days after firing James Comey.
Donald Trump voiced hope that a decision will be made before he leaves for his first foreign trip later next week. Trump described his choices for the post as outstanding people. A US administration official says 11 people are being considered to replace sacked F-B-I director James Comey. Four of them, including acting F-B-I Director Andrew McCabe, will be interviewed for the post on Saturday. Earlier this week, the US president fired Comey over his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. The move sparked massive criticism at home as Comey was leading a criminal investigation into allegations of Russian involvement in the U-S presidential election as well.
