Mike Rogers Backed by FBI Agents Association to Head Bureau

Rep. Mike Rogers

A group representing more than 12,000 retired and active FBI agents wants President Barack Obama to nominate House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) to lead the bureau after current Director Robert Mueller’s 10-year term ends in Septembe.

Rogers served as a FBI special agent before being elected to the Michigan Senate in 1995 and the group believes Rogers’ experience would help the bureau respond to challenges facing the country, the FBI Agents Association said in a statement of support released Monday.

FBIAA President Konrad Motyka cited Rogers’ leadership of the Intelligence Committee and bipartisan support for him in the statement.

“Although then-Special Agent Rogers left the FBI in 1995 to start his political career, he has never forgotten the men and women of the bureau and has been a champion for agents since his election to Congress,” Motkya added.

Rogers has also served as a  commissioned officer in the U.S. Army through the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps at the University of Michigan.
