Few in US Support Trump's Firing of FBI Chief

"I think in many ways our institutions are under assault externally, and that's the big news here, is the Russian interference in our election system".

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper didn't hold back his criticism of President Donald Trump Sunday, saying US institutions are "under assault internally".

Internally from the president?

Because he is firing the checks and balances?

CLAPPER: The founding fathers, in their genius, created three co-equal branches of government, and a built in system of checks and balances, and I feel as though that is under assault, and is eroding.

The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee kept up the pressure on the White House over the sudden firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, saying he'd like to see Comey testify at a public session of the panel.

Lee made a counterintuitive suggestion meant to draw bipartisan support: Merrick Garland, the judge nominated a year ago by former president Barack Obama to the Supreme Court but never given a hearing by the Republican-controlled Senate. The remainder said they did not know enough to have an opinion.

"Sean Spicer, he's a wonderful human being, he's a nice man", Trump said.

Clapper and Schumer made their comments on CNN's "State of the Union"; Graham spoke on NBC's "Meet the Press"; and Warner appeared on ABC's "This Week" and "Fox News Sunday". (The former would likely require legislation, which might need to be passed on a veto-proof majority.) They can do that now or in the future, depending on how well the Senate Intelligence Committee functions.

"The attorney general was supposed to have recused himself from anything involving Russian Federation, and here he is, recommending the firing of the top cop doing the Russian Federation investigation, in clear violation of what he, the attorney general, had committed to doing".

Almost a dozen people are being considered, including attorneys, law enforcement officials, and lawmakers.

Schiff said that what disturbed him most about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosensetin's memo, suggesting to terminate Comey, was the fact it was addressed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Those interviewed for the job include Sen. That may help explain why the scandal has not affected Trump's (already low) approval ratings, which are now at 39 percent, one point lower than what was recorded in last month's poll. Also interviewed were: -Adam Lee, special agent in charge of the FBI's office in Richmond, Virginia. -acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Two female candidates, former Bush administration officials Alice Fisher and Frances Townsend, also met with Sessions and Rosenstein. The FBI has never been led by a woman.
