Who will Donald Trump appoint to take over the FBI as interim director, after his abrupt firing of James Comey? U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein are reported to be interviewing candidates to take over the FBI.
Not mentioned? Rudy Giuliani. But he is widely considered to be a top pick:
Sessions and Rosenstein are said to be interviewing four candidates. They include senior FBI and Justice Department officials, and directors of various FBI field offices. ABC News was among the organizations who reported the details, citing senior Justice officials.
The four candidates: FBI Executive Assistant Director Paul Abbate, who leads the agency’s cyber and criminal branch; National Counterintelligence Executive William Evanina; Special Agent Adam Lee, who runs the Richmond field office; and Special Agent Michael Anderson, who runs the Chicago field office.
A new FBI director is expected to be chosen and announced within the next 24 to 48 hours.
"The president is in the process of evaluating individuals who will be able to fill that spot, lead the FBI and restore the confidence in the American people,” Vice President Mike Pence said today on Capitol Hill.
