President Donald Trump J. Trump is conducting four interviews for the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Here are their names of the four candidates meeting with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher, who used to work in the Justice Department’s Criminal Divsion; the acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who recently testified before Congress about the agency’s Russia collusion investigation; Texas Sen. John Cornyn, the current Senate Majority Whip and former attorney general of Texas who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee; Judge Michael J. Garcia of the New York Court of Appeals, who previously served as Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York.

We may have a new director named sooner than previously expected.

“I think the process is going to move quickly,” President Trump said while aboard Air Force One to give a college commencement speech. “Almost all of (the candidates) are very well-known. They’ve been vetted over their lifetime, essentially. But very well known, highly respected, really talented people and that’s what we want for the FBI.”

When asked if a new director could be named before he departs for his first presidential foreign trip on Friday–which will be to Saudi Arabia, Israel and Rome–the President gave a prompt response.

“That is possible,” he said.
