Former FBI official Richard McFeely alerted President Trump’s administration that he’s not interested in the top FBI job, citing family considerations, WJLA reports

That leaves three remaining candidates after an additional two – Sen. Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C. – took their name out of the running.

Political observers predicated Trump would have problems finding a replacement because of the way he treated Comey, who was fired on May 9, prompting the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russians.
