It’s official.

The Senate by a 100-0 vote officially extended FBI Director Robert Mueller’s term Wednesday by two years, the Associated Press reported.

The vote — a sign of the confidence the Senate has in Mueller — came a day after President Obama signed legislation  that opened the way for Mueller to get the two year extension.  After signing the bill, the White House nominated Mueller, and the Senate voted to confirm him.

His 10-year term was to expire in August.

“With the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaching, and a continued threat from al-Qaida, we find ourselves facing unique circumstances,” said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Pat Leahy, a Democrat, according to AP. “We need leadership, stability and continuity at the FBI as the president makes necessary shifts to his national security team.”

Mueller is the first FBI director to serve the full 10-year term after J. Edgar Hoover died.
