Trump weighing 11 candidates for FBI post
US President Donald Trump is considering nearly a dozen candidates to succeed ousted FBI Director James Comey, choosing from a group that includes several lawmakers, attorneys and law enforcement officials.

White House officials said Friday the president was moving expeditiously to find an interim FBI director along with a permanent replacement for Comey, who was fired Tuesday. 

Four candidates - Texas Sen John Cornyn, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, attorney Alice Fisher and judge Michael Garcia - have interviews scheduled Saturday.

The list also includes South Carolina Rep Trey Gowdy, former Michigan Rep Mike Rogers and former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, according to two White House officials briefed on the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal planning.

Here's a look at the 11 candidates under consideration as a permanent replacement for Comey, according to AP.
