McGurk visited Kurdish-controlled areas in northern Syria on May 17 and met with YPG commanders, according to Kurdish media. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has made it clear that he expects a turnaround from Washington on such a move.

Trump said he could make a "fast decision" on replacing Comey - possibly before he leaves Friday for Saudi Arabia, the start of his first overseas trip since taking office on January 20. And asked if Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-independent senator from CT was a top candidate, Trump said yes. "I know of no one who people had genuine affection for the way that they have for Joe Lieberman". He was Al Gore's vice presidential running mate in 2000 and retired from the Senate in 2012.

Lieberman spoke with various Bush advisers, including then-chief of staff Andrew Card and national security adviser Condoleezza Rice, about the position before he finally chose to remain in the Senate.

Among their concerns was Lieberman's past praise of Michael Flynn, Trump's first national security adviser, who was sacked in February after misleading officials about his conversations with Russian officials. John McCain, in an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe", gave Lieberman an enthusiastic endorsement, saying that he "is not only respected and admired, but beloved by all of us on both sides of the aisle". Keating earned a law degree from OU, and has also worked under former presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.

The firing drew instant criticism from both sides of the aisle, as Comey was overseeing the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 United States election and any possible links between the Trump camp and Russian Federation during the campaign.
