President Donald Trump said today ‘a fast decision’ is possible to name a replacement for FBI Director James Comey, according to a report from the Associated Press.
Trump addressed the media this morning aboard Air Force One prior to leaving for Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. where he was to deliver the commencement speech for the graduating class, according to the AP.
"I think the process is going to go quickly. Almost all of them are very well known," Trump told reporters, according to the AP.
Leading candidates for the job include Alice Fisher, a high-ranking justice department official in the George W. Bush administration; acting FBI director Andrew McCabe; New York Supreme Court Judge Michael J. Garcia; and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), according to the AP.
If selected, Fisher would be the first female head of the FBI.
