Since leaving the Senate, Lieberman has been a senior counsel at the NY law firm Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman LLP and serves on a number of boards. And seeing as how the president - who is not happy with Mueller's new gig - must choose Comey's replacement rather quickly, they're about to get a lot more.

President Donald Trump is considering former Connecticut Sen.

The meetings came more than a week after Trump fired James Comey from his post as Federal Bureau of Investigation director. The president has suggested he hopes to name Comey's successor before he departs Friday for his first overseas trip as president.

Trump met with four candidates for the top law enforcement job on Wednesday, including Lieberman, and reportedly bonded with the former Democratic vice presidential candidate, Politico reported citing a person familiar with the meeting.

Some of the appeal of Lieberman to Trump may be in a personal connection. In doing so, he will need to find a director who is not considered a political partisan and so able to fairly navigate the stormy political atmosphere following the firing of Comey, and deal with an ongoing investigation into those in the highest positions of power as the FBI continues to probe Russian interference into the presidential election and the possibility of White House collusion. He was Al Gore's vice presidential running mate in 2000 and retired from the Senate in 2012.
