Here’s who Trump should pick as the next FBI director

A former FBI agent with more than two decades of service told Business Insider in a recent interview that they believed Fran Townsend, President George W. Bush’s homeland security adviser, would be a great choice for the bureau’s next director.

The former agent, who spoke on background to provide their candid thoughts on the fallout of President Donald Trump’s bombshell firing of FBI Director James Comey last week, said Townsend would check off a lot of boxes for Trump.

Vladimir Putin is having a late career resurgence—in the hockey rink

“We have nothing to do with that.”

Vladimir Putin was put on the spot by an American reporter in Russia last night, asked to comment about US president Donald Trump’s abrupt firing of FBI chief James Comey the day before. Given the controversy about alleged Russian meddling in the recent US election—the subject of a high-profile FBI investigation—it was a fair question to ask the Russian leader.

Interview: Richard Dearlove—I spy nationalism

A former head of MI6 says that, though the White House commands our attention, Europe is the greater worry.

Richard Dearlove frowned at the coffee pot on the table before him, as he pondered the phenomenon of Donald Trump. “I think he’s very strongly nationalist,” he said, pouring himself a small cup. The room, at a discreet location in central London, was large and empty of other people, its walls lined with 19th-century portraits.

Will Trump Be Impeached Or Resign? Betting Odds Indicate POTUS Will Likely Be Removed In First Term

President Donald Trump’s first months in office have been mired in controversy, following an ongoing F.B.I. investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia, several controversial executive orders and the repealing of dozens of financial and federal regulations former President Barack Obama signed during his tenure in the Oval Office.

Now, it appears the new president’s days leading the country might just be numbered, according to those betting on his potential impeachment at Ladbrokes, a U.K. betting house. The odds of Trump’s impeachment have increased from nearly half to a 10/11 chance of happening Monday.

Those betting on the president’s political longevity have taken an unprecedented interest in putting their money where their mouths are. People have continued to flood the betting house to place odds on Trump’s removal from elected office, Jessica Bridge, a spokesperson for Ladbrokes, told news outlet Inverse on Monday.
