The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — David Sherfinski

For­mer New York City Mayor Ru­dolph W. Gi­u­liani down­played ru­mors that he could re­place FBI Di­rec­tor James B. Comey, say­ing his plan is to stay in the pri­vate sec­tor.

“There [will] be a lot of spec­u­la­tion … I’ll let you know if I change my mind, but I haven’t changed it,” Mr. Gi­u­liani said on Fox Busi­ness Net­work. “I’m stay­ing in the pri­vate sec­tor.”

Fox Busi­ness re­ported that there is spec­u­la­tion within the FBI that Mr. Gi­u­liani could at some point be tapped to re­place Mr. Comey, the bureau’s cur­rent di­rec­tor.

“I’ll do ev­ery­thing I can to help him from the out­side,” Mr. Gi­u­liani said of Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump. “I’m too happy in my law firm, in my cy­ber­se­cu­rity prac­tice.”
