Robert Mueller Chalks Up 2 New Records as Director

Robert S. Mueller III takes on two new records as the FBI director.

For one, he’s the first director to serve a full 10-year term since J. Edgar Hoover died in 1972. And Wednesday, he became the first to get a two-year extension.

Atty. Gen. Eric Holder Jr. swore Mueller in Wednesday to take on the two-year extension beyond his 10-year term. President Obama last week signed legislation allowing the extension.

The President then forwarded the nomination to the Senate, which confirmed Mueller for two more years.

In 1976, Congress enacted a law limiting the FBI Director to a 10-year term to prevent directors from accumulating too much power, as Hoover was perceived to have had.

Mueller’s term was to end in September.
