Bush security adviser interviews for Federal Bureau of Investigation job

Bush security adviser interviews for Federal Bureau of Investigation job

Yet Cornyn now finds himself among the slate of candidates rumored to be on Pres. Donald Trump's list to replace recently fired Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey.

Graham is leading an investigation into Russian interference in the U.S. election, which included a hearing featuring former acting Attorney General Sally Yates and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper last week; and the senator has received a letter from Trump's tax attorneys asserting that the past 10 years of his federal tax returns "with a few exceptions" don't show any income from Russian sources.

More than 800 people signed a petition to protest Texas Southern University's decision to invite Cornyn, the Senate's second-ranking Republican, to speak at its Saturday commencement ceremony. In the aftermath of Comey's dismissal, Cornyn said Trump was "within his authority" to fire him and said it would not affect the investigation of possible Russian ties to Trump's presidential campaign. So unless the conference gives Cornyn a waiver to serve longer, the senior senator from Texas will go from the number two Republican in the Senate to just another senator, albeit one with seniority.

News reports throughout the day Friday cited as many as 11 people under consideration for the position.

At the Movies: 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' Vol
Sean Gunn's Kraglin was a constant and loyal supporter of Yondu, so it was exciting to see him get an extended role in Vol. 2 . However, I liked the introduction of Star Lord's heritage and the feud between the two sisters, Gamora and Nebula.

It ticks off a list of Cornyn's policy stances: He voted for DeVos for U.S. Education secretary and against expanding a children's health insurance program.

"If you assume that, this strikes me as a lousy way to do it", he said.

A statement released by university spokesman Kendrick Callis said commencement speaker Sen.

NBC's Chuck Todd asked why former FBI Director James Comey's predecessor should be an FBI agent and not a USA attorney or prosecutor. John Cornyn; U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson; former Homeland Security adviser Frances Townsend; and former Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers.

The meeting prepares the way for a summit at the level of presidents and prime ministers in Taormina, Sicily, on May 26-27. Finally, the G7 meeting did not address trade and the risks of protectionism, officials said.

"My suspicion is he may be ready for a new challenge; he's been in the Senate now for quite a while", said Vanderbilt University law professor Brian Fitzpatrick, who worked as Cornyn's special counsel on the Supreme Court nominations of John Roberts and Samuel Alito. Graham argued that this was a bad time for the White House to pick any nominee, no matter how qualified, if they were to come with partisan political baggage.

"That's a ridiculous position", Cornyn said May 10, the day after Comey was sacked.

Fisher previously served as assistant attorney general in charge of the Justice Department's criminal division, also under Bush.

"I don't think that's a good strategy at all", Collins said, adding that she wanted to question Rosenstein Thursday on whether a special prosecutor was indeed needed.
