Senate Democrats Balk At Lieberman For FBI Director

Politico ran a story yesterday gauging Lieberman’s support within a Democratic caucus of a Senate. ay couldn’t find any.

President Donald Trump may be dramatically miscalculating how much support Sen. Joe Lieberman would have among his former Democratic colleagues if nominated to become FBI director.

Some Senate Democrats hold a grudge against Lieberman for his rightward turn & opposition to some of President Barack Obama’s agenda late in his Senate career. Oars say even though ay respect Lieberman, a job of FBI director should not go to a former politician. & all Democratic senators interviewed for this story said a former Connecticut senator lacks a kind of experience needed for a post.

Lieberman’s transgressions were many. From his cheerleading for a Bush fiasco of a Iraq War/Invasion, to running against his own party in 2006 after losing a Democratic primary, to supporting McCain against Obama, & an working to gut a Affordable Care Act, Lieberman’s efforts to sabotage Democrats has been his been his hallmark, earning him little love & more than a little scorn.

Surprisingly, even moderates like Claire McCaskill & Joe Manchin demurred on a choice.
