GOP candidate for FBI says no special counsel for inquiry

Senator John Cornyn being considered for FBI Director report says

Senator John Cornyn being considered for FBI Director report says

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill on May 11, 2017 in Washington.

Finally, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a hearing on the nomination of former Republican Sen. Asked if he would accept the job if offered, he said that he liked public service. If nominated and confirmed, she would be the first woman to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"The only thing I can say is that it was done to ensure that our students and families enjoyed their special day", university spokesman Kendrick D. Callis told The Texas Tribune.

The historically black university announced Friday that Cornyn, a Republican, would not speak at the commencement ceremony on Saturday but would be invited back to the university for another appearance in the future.

These are as partisan positions as can be had. "That's unfortunately just the way it is because it got so partisan".

Cornyn has also occasionally criticized Trump - albeit gently.

On Thursday, Trump contradicted those talking points, telling NBC News that he planned to fire Comey well before the recommendations, and because Trump simply felt that Comey wasn't doing a good job.

Graham was referring, obviously, to Trump's clumsy decision to fire Comey, which, as the president told NBC's Lester Holt, was accompanied by the thought that "you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story". Comey, for instance, was a former United States attorney in Manhattan before being appointed deputy attorney general by George W. Bush.

Rebecca Treviño, who is graduating with a degree in social work, said she and a group of others from her social work classes chose to start the petition to raise awareness about Cornyn's stance on key issues.

"We have no idea whether or not there are tapes but if there are tapes then they should be turned over", Collins said. But Collins, like other Republicans, said the White House should be prepared to turn them over.

"The problem with a special prosecutor is we've had mixed results in the past", McCain said.

Cornyn is the No. 2 Republican in the Senate behind Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said Tuesday morning that he'd recommended that President Donald Trump nominate Garland for the post.
