These are the four Comey replacement candidates interviewed on Saturday


Candidates will be interviewed Saturday for the position of the new director for the FBI, replacing former chief James Comey.

Acting FBI Director James McCabe is among at least four contenders for the job who will be interviewed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein, according to The Hill.

McCabe stepped in to his temporary role following Comey’s dismissal by President Trump on Tuesday. He spoke before a Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, discrediting conspiracy theories floated by the left following Trump’s unexpected move.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, former assistant attorney general Alice Fisher, and Judge Michael J. Garcia of the New York Court of Appeals are among the reported attorneys, lawmakers and law enforcement officials that the president will be interviewing, according to the Hill.

Texas Republican Cornyn noted in a statement Friday that his priority was serving in the Senate.

“I have the distinct privilege of serving 28 million Texans in the United States Senate, and that is where my focus remains,” the second-ranking Senate Republican said. The 65 year-old, former Texas attorney general and state supreme court justice, has served in the Senate since 2002.

Former Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers and former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly are also on the president’s list as potential replacements to Comey.

Trump’s ultimate choice will have to be approved by the Senate and will serve a 10 year term, unless removed by a president in the future.
