Lieberman: Trump Didn't Ask for Loyalty During FBI Director Interview

Lieberman: Trump Didn't Ask for Loyalty During FBI Director Interview

Former Sen. Joe Lieberman, who was briefly one of President Donald Trump's leading candidates to head the FBI, said this week the president never asked for his loyalty during the interview process.

Lieberman told CNN Wednesday night Trump did not make such a request. Former FBI Director James Comey, who Trump fired last month, claimed the president asked for his loyalty during a January dinner.

"I can say he did not make any demand like that at all . . . In fact, you might say the contrary," Lieberman told CNN. 

Trump said in mid-May that Lieberman was his top choice to lead the FBI. A week later, Lieberman withdrew his name from consideration for the job. 

Lieberman was a longtime Democratic senator from Connecticut and was the vice presidential candidate in the 2000 election.
