President Trump had reportedly narrowed his list down to four finalists to replace James Comey as the FBI Director.
Saturday, former FBI official Richard McFeely notified the White House that he is withdrawing his name from the list, out of consideration for his family, reported ABC7 News.
McFeely had met with President Trump earlier this week. The remaining three candiates for the job are reported to be Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), former Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating (R), and the current FBI acting director Andrew McCabe.
