FBI Agents Association (FBIAA) President Konrad Motyka issued the following statement on President Obama’s nomination of James Comey to be the next FBI Director:
"On behalf of our members – more than 12,000 active duty and retired Agents – I congratulate James Comey on his nomination to be the next FBI Director. We believe that Mr. Comey understands the centrality of the Special Agent to the Bureau's mission of protecting our country from criminal and terrorist threats. We look forward to meeting with him soon and working with him on the wide array of challenges facing our country.
While the FBIAA endorsed Rep. Mike Rogers and believes that he would have been an excellent nominee, Mr. Comey has an outstanding reputation among FBI Agents.”

The FBIAA works diligently to promote and facilitate the intelligent, skillful, and efficient discharge of the professional duties of all FBI agents. The Association works hard to advance and safeguard the careers, economic interests, conditions of employment, and welfare of active and retired FBI agents.
