President Obama’s nominee for FBI director, James Comey, faces a tough confirmation battle over a host of controversial issues facing the agency.

Comey, who served as deputy attorney general in President George W. Bush, is seeking Senate confirmation at a tough time for the FBI, reports The Hill. The Hill reports that hearing will start after Congress returns from its 4th of July recess.

Among the controversial topics expected to be addressed are miranda rights and enemy combatant status, the Boston bombing missteps, drones and eavesdropping.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to hold hearings this week after the July 4 recess.
