Attorney General Sessions to interview 4 candidates Saturday for FBI director
WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Department officials on Saturday will interview four candidates to succeed ousted FBI Director James Comey.
They include acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
Two people familiar with the process say others set to be interviewed include Alice Fisher, who formerly served as assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s Criminal Division during President George W. Bush’s second term.
Michael J. Garcia, an associate judge on the New York’s highest court, is also on the list.
So is Sen. John Cornyn, a former Texas attorney general.
The four will interview with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The people familiar with the process say others may also interview. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.
