Former senator and 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Lieberman is getting a lot of attention lately.
The one-time Democrat-turned-independent senator is being listed as one of President Donald Trump’s possible picks to lead the FBI.
Some may think that going with Lieberman is a way for Trump to win some support across the aisle.
Well, it doesn’t sound like any of that support will come from U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio.
Here’s what Brown said to POLITICO:
In an interview, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) fumed about Lieberman’s efforts to undercut more generous Medicare benefits in Obamacare and his relative closeness to Trump. After a monologue on Lieberman’s faults, Brown ended by telling a reporter: “That’s all on the record.”
“Joe Lieberman has no real law enforcement credentials. Look where he works now, a Trump law firm. That tells me a lot,” Brown said, referring to the law firm where Lieberman now works that represents Trump.
