Trump says pick for next Federal Bureau of Investigation director could be announced within days

"We can make a fast decision", Mr Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One today.

Fox News quoted a government source as saying they were moving "quickly and expeditiously" to find a replacement, adding: "We're doing our due diligence - we are not going to cut any corners". They've been vetted over their lifetime, essentially.

Trump said the candidates under consideration to lead the FBI - White House officials have identified 11 of them so far - are "outstanding people".

Sean Spicer later said that Trump is just "dismayed" by the "gotcha" game in the briefings, and Trump told Pirro that maybe he'll just reduce the briefings to once every two weeks and do it himself.

The move comes as the agency is investigating whether Trump's campaign was connected to Russian meddling in the election. Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe was also interviewed, despite his repeated willingness to break from the White House explanations of Comey's ouster.

Democrats demanded the White House turn over recordings, if they exist, of the president's conversations with Comey.

They are acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director Andrew McCabe, Michael J. Garcia, an associate judge on New York's highest court, and GOP Sen.

Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn, who is the current Senate majority whip and a former Texas attorney general, is also in the running.

Three other were expected to be interview on Saturday afternoon.

Democrats cast the decision to fire Comey as an effort to obstruct the FBI's probe, a charge the White House has denied.

Sen. Dick Durbin D-Ill., called Trump "dangerous" on Friday in the wake of Trump's post on Twitter that suggested he taped a conversation with Comey.

Trump went on to tell Holt that the Russian Federation investigation "should have been over with a long time ago" and that Comey's continued focus on Russian Federation showed "he's the wrong man for that position" as FBI director.

Neither hearing would technically be about how or why Comey was sacked, but it's a safe bet someone would have brought it up.

At Liberty, the nation's largest Christian college, Trump peppered his remarks with the kind of anti-establishment rhetoric that fueled his maverick presidential campaign, telling graduates to challenge "entrenched interests". And while Trump praised chief of staff Reince Priebus after the House passed a health care bill last week, associates say the president has continued to raise occasional questions about Priebus' leadership in the West Wing.
