Trump Says New FBI Director Could Be Named Next Week

While speaking to reporters on Air Force One Saturday, President Donald Trump explained that he could nominate a replacement for now-former FBI Director James Comey sooner than anyone may have thought.

"I think the process is going to go quickly because nearly all of them are very well known". They've been vetted over their lifetime, essentially.

"In fact when I chose to just do it, I said to myself, I said, 'You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won", he said.

The Associated Press, the New York Times, and The Washington Post all reported Wednesday that Comey had requested additional resources for the Russian Federation investigation in the days leading up his dismissal.
