FBI agents endorse ex-Rep. Mike Rogers for director

WASHINGTON — A group of current and former FBI agents today endorsed former Michigan congressman Mike Rogers to take over as director of the agency.

“Chairman Rogers exemplifies the principles that should be possessed by the next FBI director,” said Thomas F. O’Connor, president of the FBI Agents Association, in announcing the endorsement of Rogers to replace James Comey. “It is essential that the next FBI director understand the details of how agents do their important work.”

The FBI Agents Association, a group with a membership of 13,000 current and former FBI agents, had previously endorsed Rogers, a former FBI agent himself who represented Michigan in Congress for 14 years before stepping down in 2015.
