Like everyone else left over from prior administrations, people wonder who will stay with Trump’s administration and who will be replaced. FBI Director James Comey, a Republican, says he has no intention to leave his post and told everyone that we are stuck with him.
The FBI director has no plans to leave the post before the end of his 10-year term.
“You’re stuck with me for about 6 1/2 years,” James Comey said at a cyber conference in Boston on Wednesday, urging conference organizers to invite him to speak again.
In recent days, NPR and other news outlets have reported Comey pressed the Justice Department without success to issue a public denial of President Trump’s tweet that the FBI and President Barack Obama wiretapped his phones at Trump Tower.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said this week that Trump still has confidence in Comey’s ability to lead the FBI.
