'Outnumbered': Should Trump Keep the 'Chatty Cathy' FBI Director?
James Comey will remain as FBI Director under President Donald Trump, Fox News confirmed this morning.
Comey had already alerted members of the FBI that Trump asked him to stay on the job. He's currently serving a 10-year term that expires in 2023.
At the White House on Sunday, Trump shook hands with Comey and remarked, "He's become more famous than me."

Meghan McCain said on "Outnumbered" today that Comey's fame is not a good thing.
"I don't want the FBI director to be more famous than our celebrity president. I think it's bizarre," she said, repeating her view that Comey should step down.
"I have an innate distrust of [Comey] on many levels," she said.
Melissa Francis called Comey a "chatty Cathy" of sorts, referencing his July news conference on Hillary Clinton's private server and his letter to Congress about that investigation shortly before Election Day.
"The FBI, I don't of one of their key characteristics as being chatty," said Francis.
Julie Roginsky agreed, saying it was unheard-of for an FBI director to say, "I'm not gonna indict, but I'm gonna tell you all the things that this person did wrong."
Roginsky said she believes Comey has "lost the confidence" of people in the FBI and Justice Department who don't agree with how he conducted the investigation.
They all agreed that the FBI under Comey has a "leaking problem."
