Texas Southern University Cancels Sen. Cornyn's Commencement Speech After Student Opposition

Texas Southern University Cancels Sen. Cornyn's Commencement Speech After Student Opposition

McCabe on Thursday contradicted the Trump White House when he called the probe into the possible Russian meddling in the USA election as "a highly significant investigation" and commented that Comey still "enjoyed broad support within the FBI".

Garcia, an associate judge on the New York's highest court, is also on the list.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney Rod Rosenstein are expected to interview the candidates on Saturday afternoon.

The list is not a comprehensive accounting of finalists for the Federal Bureau of Investigation director positions.

It is possible other candidates could be considered, officials said, and the ultimate decision falls to Trump.

Chuck Schumer last week said the Senate should not move ahead on a vote for a new FBI director until a special projector is appointed to lead an investigation into President Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation during the presidential campaign.

He also has strong relationships with members of his conference and would likely sail through confirmation. Ted Cruz both backed Trump's decision to fire Comey. But GOP senators set term limits for leadership posts and his ends at the start of 2019.

A commencement speech by a Republican senator from Texas has been canceled.

The fiery South Carolinian who made his name grilling Hillary Clinton over the 2012 attack on a US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and the Texan who serves as the number two Republican in the Senate are among the candidates under consideration to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation after James Comey's high-profile firing earlier this week.

Cornyn has in recent weeks become more of an outward defender of Trump.

A historically black university in Texas has canceled an upcoming commencement speech by Republican Sen.

The university issued a statement saying Cornyn had been asked "to instead visit with our students again at a future date in order to keep the focus on graduates and their families".

"Sen. Cornyn was honored to be invited to address TSU's graduates, but he respects the administration's decision and looks forward to continuing to engage with the university in the future", the spokeswoman said. He spoke before a Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, discrediting conspiracy theories floated by the left following Trump's unexpected move.
