Washington State Politician on Short List for New FBI Director
Pres. Trump selected a Tri-Cities man as his Sec. of Defense, and Seattle politicians were on his transition team. Now a former King Co. Sheriff and Washington congressman is on the short list for new FBI director.
Dave Reichert does not appear to be a favorite or a frontrunner, but insiders say he's in the running, he's being considered.
That said, Trump had a favorite, and that person dropped out of contention, so Trump is looking for new candidates, suggesting he isn't happy with his short list. That bodes poorly for Rep. Reichert, but it's cool Washington leaders are seen as highly talented and qualified.
