Statement by Chairman Rogers and Ranking Member C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger on the Senate Confirmation of James Comey to be Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation

“We congratulate Jim Comey on his appointment to be the next director of the FBI.  The FBI has made tremendous strides in its post 9/11 transformation and we look forward to working with Jim to complete the transition, including working to address long-standing concerns of the agents in the field who are the lifeblood of the Bureau. 

In addition to his experience in the Bush Justice Department, Jim’s close relationship with Attorney General Holder will help strengthen the critically important relationship between DoJ and the FBI.
