The Trump administration is not going to offer up former Senator Joe Lieberman as the replacement for Jim Comey to head up the FBI.
In fact, they’re starting over, completely:
Joe Lieberman no longer being considered for FBI director. President's team has hit the restart button on the search for a new FBI Director

The news is welcome. Lieberman has no law enforcement experience. He’s been a politician since first being elected in 1970 to the Connecticut Senate. His work at a private law firm since 2013 would no doubt come under intense scrutiny.
Trump has to choose a non-political person. It has to be somebody with a law enforcement background for Trump to keep Democrats in line.
