Lieberman Top Candidate For FBI

Senator Joe Lieberman  is emerging as the top candidate for FBI director. 

 In a White House  photo-op today, Trump said he will announce his pick "soon."  

Trump  fired FBI chief James Comey last week, saying he was not doing a good  job.  

Lieberman  is 75 and would start serving a 10-year term if he is nominated and  confirmed by the Senate.  

The veteran Connecticut lawmaker was the  Democratic vice presidential nominee in the 2000 election.  

He later  became an independent.
