FBI Agents Want Rep. Rogers to Be Bureau Director

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) - A group representing FBI agents and retirees says it wants President Barack Obama to make Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers the next FBI director.

The Brighton Republican worked as an FBI agent before being elected to the Michigan Senate and later to Congress. Rogers is considering whether to run for the U.S. Senate seat opening with Democrat Carl Levin's retirement.

The FBI Agents Association on Monday endorsed Rogers to replace FBI Director Robert Mueller, whose 10-year term was extended by Congress for 2 years and ends in September.

The organization says Rogers is respected on both sides of the aisle and his background as a special agent "sets him apart."

The 49-year-old Rogers chairs the House Intelligence Committee. He says in a statement he's honored and humbled by the endorsement.
