The tweet caused a stir in the United States media.
The Trump administration is looking to fill the job after President Donald Trump fired Director James Comey this week.
Much of Trump's ire has been focused on the communications team, all of whom were caught off guard by Comey's ouster. Comey told associates he declined the president's request, saying instead he would always be honest.
Things got pretty testy Friday morning when Donald Trump threatened to end all daily White House press briefings because "it is not possible" for his staff to speak with "perfect accuracy" to the American public. He said that while he received a scathing assessment of Comey's performance from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Monday, that memo was not a catalyst for his dramatic decision as the White House had said earlier."I was going to fire Comey", Trump said. His name was floated as a possible replacement for then-FBI Director Robert Mueller in 2013, and he received support from an association of FBI agents before President Barack Obama chose Comey.
After four months in office, President Donald Trump has become distrustful of some of his White House staff, heavily reliant on a handful of family members and longtime aides, and furious that the White House's attempts to quell the firestorm over the FBI and congressional Russian Federation investigations only seem to add more fuel.
That's because knowledge of the tapes generated by Nixon's White House recordings almost 44 years ago marked the beginning of the end of his presidency.
Later, White House press secretary Sean Spicer repeatedly refused to address whether recording devices had been placed in the White House.
The news media criticized the White House for the evolving description of the decision-making process that preceded Mr. Trump's decision to fire Mr. Comey. But Democrats appearing on Sunday talk shows said the abrupt firing of the man leading an Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry into possible Russian meddling in the 2016 election and the Russia links of several Trump associates amounted to obstruction of justice.
The president's original dismissal letter to Comey indicated that he was being fired for his handling of the Clinton email probe.
She also was deputy special counsel to the Senate committee that investigated President Bill Clinton's Whitewater scandal. He also said that he had pressed Comey during a private dinner to tell him if he was under investigation.
When he came out with that scathing set of circumstances, the server... the emails, 33,000 emails...
Scarborough takes the debunked allegation and speculates: "Rosenstein, this sainted figure, according to Trump hacks, gets this information, passes it along to Jeff Sessions, who passes it along to Donald Trump - we are nearly certain - and then what happens?"
He said the decision could come before he leaves Friday for Saudi Arabia on his first foreign trip as president. Former Republican Representative Mike Rogers is being considered as a candidate to replace Comey, a senior White House official said.
Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Republican Senator John Cornyn, New York Appeals Court Judge Michael Garcia and former Assistant Attorney General Alice Fisher were scheduled to be interviewed on Saturday, an administration official said. Rep. Trey Gowdy The South Carolina Republican is best known for leading the congressional inquiry into the deadly attacks on a USA facility in Benghazi, Libya, a panel that oversaw a lengthy grilling of Hillary Clinton in 2015.
