House On Monday to Consider Bill to Extend FBI Dir. Mueller’s Term

The House on Monday is expected to consider a bill that would extend FBI Director Mueller’s 10-year term two additional years, Fox News reported.

The Senate last week gave a thumbs up to the bill, and the House is expected to easily pass the legislation. Mueller’s 10-year term expires this year, but the White House decided to push for the extension for the sake of continuity at the agency.

The bill would provide a one-time extension and would not provide one for future FBI directors — unless legislators again decided to introduce a similar bill.

After FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover died, Congress passed a law limiting the FBI director term to 10-years.

The law was passed so that no other FBI director would accumulate as much power as Hoover. Some groups have opposed that extension for just that reason.
