Chuck Schumer Threatens To Boycott FBI Confirmation If No Special Prosecutor Named

"We can make a fast decision", Mr. Trump said. "And I think, as well, our institutions are under assault internally". There, the president supposedly asked if he was under investigation for colluding with Russian Federation to win the 2016 presidential election.

The move prompted an uproar among Democrats and some Republicans because Comey's agency is leading an investigation into whether there were connections between Russian interference in last year's presidential election and people associated with Trump's campaign.

"President Trump's style is chaos", Haire said.

White House spokespeople later refused to say whether the president's conversations were in fact being secretly taped.

In the Trump era, it has become a cable TV hit and cultural touchstone. "The president is the CEO of the country".

Asked if the decision or an announcement could take place before he leaves for Saudi Arabia on Friday, Trump said: "Even that is possible".

President Donald Trump is considering almost a dozen candidates to succeed ousted FBI Director James Comey, choosing from a group that includes several lawmakers, attorneys and law enforcement officials.

Trump has rejected the probe as "fake news", and claimed Comey assured him at a dinner and in two phone calls that he wasn't under investigation.

Mr Rogers, an ex-FBI agent and former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has drawn the backing of the FBI Agents Association.

"It's now time to pick somebody who comes from within the ranks, or is of such a reputation who has no political background at all who can go into the job from Day 1", the South Carolina Republican said.

Among those interviewed was McCabe, though it's not clear how seriously he's being considered. Experts say he may potentially be in legal jeopardy, which makes him someone an aggressive investigator such as Comey would likely squeeze for information about others.

"I'm not saying it any way", Trump said. Garland never got a hearing due to Republican obstruction, and the high court vacancy was filled last month by Neil Gorsuch.

Comey declined an invitation to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in a closed meeting on Tuesday for scheduling reasons, said Warner's spokesman.

In Nixon's time, there were solid adversarial Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress and there were also some Republicans, especially in the Senate, who put concerns about the constitution ahead of concerns for their party. Republicans hold 52 seats in the chamber to Democrats' 48. "If there's tapes of this conversation, they need to be turned over".

Senator Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the intelligence committee, said that as his panel continues to investigate the Russian Federation matter, it wants to "make sure those tapes, if they exist, are preserved".

Democrats kept up the pressure on Donald Trump on Sunday over his firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, as members of both parties said the president must turn over any secret recordings of the two men's conversations.

This week, the President fired FBI Director James Comey. But the firing did violate a powerful unwritten norm: that the director serves a 10-year, nonrenewable term and is fired only for good cause.

So far 14 people - politicians, lawyers and law enforcement officials among them - have emerged as candidates.

Trump's administration - embroiled in a deepening crisis over the sacking and its shifting explanation of events - is interviewing the first candidates for the post on Saturday, US media reported.

Among those interviewed was Adam Lee, special agent in charge of the FBI's Richmond, Virginia, office. McCabe said Comey had "broad support within the Federal Bureau of Investigation and still does to this day". John Cornyn of Texas, attorney Alice Fisher and Judge Michael Garcia for the permanent position. Perhaps Trump only thinks of USA journalists as "the enemy".
