No way. Nobody needs this Liberal piece of Shit Snowflake

Of course not. He was the one who condemned Clinton’s actions during the Lewinski Scandal, and then voted not to impeach him ( Clinton ). Classic flip flop move from a total hipocrite. George Petrakogiorgis

Joe Lieberman would be as bad if not worse than Comey, Sheriff
David Clark best choice.
May 21, 2017,9:43 pm
Not no, but HELL NO!
You could just as well nominate John McCain!
Your supporters will leave in droves and I along with them!
Sheriff David Clarke is the perfect choice here!
May 21, 2017,12:44 pm
WHY would Pres. Trump consider an ANTI-Second Amendment liberal DemocRAT for the position? And Al Gore’s former vice presidential nominee on top of that! Trump SHOULD consider either Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee OR former Governor Frank Keating of Oklahoma–himself a former House Rep in DC, former U.S. Senator AND former special agent for FBI himself! NOMINATE KEATING!

Too close to the pols in Washington. Get the number one graduate from Harvard and sign him up.
May 20, 2017,8:19 pm
I think Sheriff Clarke would be a better choice.
May 20, 2017,5:50 pm
He’s part of the swamp & another lawyer. We need A LAWMAN, not another politician.
May 20, 2017,4:40 pm
Not a good choice. He’s part of the swamp.
May 20, 2017,3:44 pm
No person should be appointed who has a predisposed position against any Amendment. Joe is opposed to 2nd Amendment positions and as such has a predisposition against a basic right of the people. How can ANYONE take an oath to “Protect and Defend” the Constitution if they have qualifying positions against the basic God Given rights of an individual?
May 20, 2017,1:45 pm
NO! He might as well have chosen John McCain to be his FBI Director>
May 20, 2017,1:05 pm
No To Joe, has Trump already forgotten what he promised? Kelly or Gowdy, either can and will do the job.
May 20, 2017,12:33 pm
No!!! We need a real LAWMAN like Kelly. PLEASE spare us another LAWYER.
May 20, 2017,10:49 am
I agree with Susan Z. The new leadership should come from within the bureau. There must be a brilliant individual in the bureau ready to restore the reputation of the FBI. The leadership must be of high moral integrity, constitutional loyalty and ethical fiber.
God Bless America….
May 20, 2017,4:10 am
No on Joe he is like all of them out to get our President Trump. Joe in with Clintons and Comey is always going to save Dems
We need new blood in next FBI Director.
May 20, 2017,3:38 am
A long time career politician…. only he knows how many back door deals he is or has been involved in during his years in Congress. He certainly developed a bias toward the Clintons as a Senator…. I don’t know if they were good or bad, but it is almost certain they exist. There must be better choices!
May 20, 2017,1:46 am
He is a part of the swamp.
We need someone fresh new eith energy to do the job.
May 20, 2017,12:52 am
New Director should come from within the FBI not from without!
May 20, 2017,12:38 am
No, absolutely not, he is just another damn worthless lying treasonous traitorous liberal. he has voted with the demonrats for so long he wouldn’t recognize the truth if it slapped him in the face.
May 20, 2017,12:05 am
Career Politician ,old , no stamina….no experience.Drain the Swamp Don’t add to it! Btw…Good friends with John Mc Cain.
May 19, 2017,10:45 pm
Lieberman? Are you kidding me? President Trump, we elected you to ‘Drain the Swamp!’, not to add to it. No! No! No! On Lieberman!
May 19, 2017,10:32 pm
Trey Gowdy is the only choice
May 19, 2017,10:13 pm
TREY GOWDY IS THE ONLY MAN FOR THE JOB.
May 19, 2017,10:09 pm
NO WAY NOTHIG BUT A CAREER POLLITION. Who is running a failed state at that. Poorest choice one could make.
May 19, 2017,9:16 pm
NO NO NO COMPLETELY CONECTED TO CLINTON CURUPTION. HIS RECORD IS HORRIBLE DOES NOT LISTEN TO HIS CONSTITUENTS, I BELIEVE WE HAVE MANY MANY OTHER WELL QUALIFIED PERSONS . MY SUGGESTION PUT OUT A HELP WANTED ADD for THIS PUT OUT THE TEN BEST TO THE PEOPLE, AND GO WITH THE NUMBERS. ITS FAIR AND PEOPLE WILL RESPOND.
May 19, 2017,9:11 pm
America doesn’t need some old fart politician w/one foot in the grave running the FBI. There are more qualified individuals out there than Lieberman.
May 19, 2017,8:43 pm
I keep hearing McCain saying he and Lieberman are best friends, that is not a favorable reference in my book coming from a backstabbing, vile ,piece of crap like McCain, he is not a hero he’s a zero, he should have one of Hannibals’ face masks on him. So if and when(hoping) McCain gets busted, is Lieberman going to cover his ass like Comey did Hillary and Obama.
May 19, 2017,8:13 pm
Lieberman’s voting record in the Senate from 1999 to 2012 was a miserable 9% from The Freedom Index of The New American. https://www.thenewamerican.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=38&Itemid=828&nameid=L000304
He combines the worst aspects of communist collectivism and neocon warmongering. Whoever is offering such advice to President Trump should be fired for being a traitor.
May 19, 2017,7:59 pm
WE THE PEOPLE DO NOT NEED ANY MORE LYNG DEMACRATS TO BE PUT IN OFFICE.
May 19, 2017,7:39 pm
ARE YOU KIDDING, GIVE US THE TOP CALIBER LAW ENFORCER…GOP PROMISED LAW AND ORDER, NOT A POLITICIAN. READ THE COMMENTS NO, NO, NO
May 19, 2017,7:28 pm
do not want joe l
May 19, 2017,7:26 pm
While he is a good man, he does not have the law enforcement background to be the No. 1 cop in the USA!
May 19, 2017,6:28 pm
Mr Trump, I supported you from before even you were considering the thought. I sent you lots of money from time to time, taken from my daughters who deserve it. Many famous qualified people supported you with all their breath and strength and you turn your back on Rudy Guiliani a very qualified persecutor who proved himself many times getting rid of swamps. Liberman will stab you in the back when your not looking he is a deranged animal with no qualifications. Stop worrying Mr Trump, you have it in you, take charge, you will sweep away total corruption and in justice Lieberman is attached to the Clinton’s like a leach. For God’s sake follow your common sense like you always do. Follow your instincts….In the name of God stay away from Lieberman that Clinton slave. Tony Covello
May 19, 2017,6:19 pm
We need Trey Gowdy
May 19, 2017,6:09 pm
Not qualified at all, big mistake!!
May 19, 2017,6:05 pm
Lieberman is a political animal, part of the, ‘DC Swamp’, has no law enforcement experience, background, will side with the highest bidders, symbiotic relationship with the ‘DemocRATs, ardent supporter of Zionist Israel! not a TRUE US Patriot!!
May 19, 2017,5:48 pm
We don’t need a politician head of the FBI We need some one with law enforcement experience;
May 19, 2017,5:42 pm
President Trump needs a lot more conservatives on his team to show him around the traps set by obamas appointments or he will be run over by the communist democrat party
May 19, 2017,5:41 pm
Stop giving the Dems everything they want. THEY LOST! They have no evidence or it would have leaked long ago. The can corrupt justice (Obama stating multiple times that Hillary was innocent – during investigation) and make side deals with the leading state sponsor of terror (notice, THAT, never leaked), send top secrets to a pedophile and not strong enough evidence to nab a dem! Tired of spineless rebublicans giving the farm away to these progressive pukes.l, especially after we have won. Grow some stones or go home!
May 19, 2017,5:41 pm
NO! Back in the day he was a bought Politican, far from independent! NO politicians for this Office!! Ray Kelly might be a good choice??
May 19, 2017,5:40 pm
No! Need someone with FBI experience. Assign the current Deputy Director.
May 19, 2017,5:36 pm
NO! Joe is as close to another Democrat, who are problems while staying on as part of the ADM now with leaks and etc. WE don’t need an R or any politician doing it either. No old top cops either UNLESS they can protect and defend the Constitution especially the First set of Amendments that protect OUR Freedoms!
May 19, 2017,5:35 pm
No. He still part of the establishment and also not an experienced law enforcement officer.
May 19, 2017,5:35 pm
No democrat can ever be trusted with power or our tax dollars, EVER !
May 19, 2017,5:34 pm
Joe is as qualified to be the nation’s head cop as Trump is to be the Commander in Chief. I know, that’s confusing to Trumpies, so I’ll make it clear – NOT QUALIFIED!!!
May 19, 2017,5:21 pm
We need someone with fire in his belly – not that old has been.
May 19, 2017,5:17 pm
Ever since he took America by storm in the 2016 election, Pres. Trump has attracted controversy and attention in equal measure. Now conservative readers can go behind the scenes of his White House and his winning campaign — check out our CBC Reading Roundup to find out more!
“Within the first eleven months, we canceled or delayed over 1,500 planned regulatory actions, more than any previous president. Instead of eliminating two old regulations for every one new regulation, we have eliminated 22! We aimed for 2 for 1, and in 2017, we hit 22-1.”
“I promised we would pass a massive tax cut for the everyday, working American families who are the backbone and the heartbeat of our country…. We want to give you, the American people, a giant tax cut for Christmas. And when I say giant, I mean giant.”
