“I strongly support the President’s decision to seek a two-year extension to FBI Director Mueller’s 10-year term.  Director Mueller is a cornerstone of the Intelligence Community.  His strength, commitment and determination have led the FBI through days of great challenge, transformation and success. His leadership has provided immeasurable benefits to our collective efforts, and our community is stronger, more strategic and more integrated because of his tremendous work. I look forward to continuing to serve our great nation together with Director Mueller.”
