FBI Agents Association Says Rep. Mike Rogers “Never Forgot the Men and Women of the Bureau”

The FBI always seemed to appreciate having one of its own in Congress.

So when Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich), the House Intelligence Committee Chairman, announced he was retiring to host a nationally syndicated radio show, the FBI Agents Association (FBIAA) wanted to show some appreciation.

President Reynaldo Tariche issued a statement on Monday, saying:

“The FBIAA and our 12,000 active duty and retired Agents thank Chairman Rogers for his many years of public service and for his support of Agents over the years. Agents knew that they had a strong voice in Congress thanks to Chairman Rogers.

“He started his career as an FBI Special Agent and though he left the FBI in 1995 to start his political career, he never forgot the men and women of the Bureau and has been a champion for Agents since his election to Congress. He will be missed and we wish him well in his new career in the private sector.”

The FBI Agents Association, which represents more than 12,000 active duty and retired Agents, is urging President Obama to pick Michigan Congressman Mike Rogers to replace FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III.

Rogers, a Republican,  is a former FBI agent, who heads the House Intelligence Committee.

In a press release issued Monday,the association’s president Konrad Motyka stated:

“Chairman Rogers exemplifies the principles that should be possessed by the next FBI Director. His unique and diverse experience as a veteran, FBI Agent and member of Congress will allow him to effectively lead the men and women of the Bureau as they continue their work to protect our country from criminal and terrorist threats.”

“Chairman Rogers heads the House Intelligence Committee and is respected by leaders on both sides of the aisle. His background as a Special Agent sets him apart as someone capable of confronting the wide array of challenges facing our country and the Bureau.”

Other names that have surfaced in the rumor mill include: ex-U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald ,  Jim Comey, the former U.S. attorney in Manhattan and Jana Monroe, former head of the Phoenix FBI.

Two years ago, the association pushed for Mike Mason , the former Executive Assistant Director for the Criminal Investigative Division of the FBI, to get Mueller’s job. But in the end, President Obama punted on a replacement and decided to extend Mueller’s reign by two years.

WASHINGTON — Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mi.), a former FBI agent, criticized the decision by President Obama to dispatch FBI director Robert S. Mueller to Arizona after the mass shooting on Saturday, according to the radio station WHMI in Livingston County, Mi., outside Detroit.

“He didn’t need to be in Arizona to be updated frequently and this is a very serious matter and I just hope…We don’t to overreact to the full implementation for successful investigation,” Rogers told WHMI.

“They are fully capable of doing it without the Director himself being on the ground in Arizona,” said Rogers who was an FBI agent in Chicago from 1988-1994 where he investigated public corruption.

Rogers also told the station it makes his “blood boil” when pundits try to implicate Sarah Palin in the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Az) because of her website which included bulls eye on lawmakers who supported the Obama healthcare.
