FBI’s Top Congressional Liaison Quietly Steps Down for Private Sector Job

The FBI’s top liaison on Capitol Hill quietly left his job on March 30.

Greg Brower, an FBI assistant director who ran the bureau’s Office of Congressional Affairs, began a new job this week as a shareholder in the litigation department of the Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck law firm.

Then-FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by President Trump’s administration last year, made Brower, a senior lawyer, his deputy counsel and later a congressional liaison.

Brower said his departure had nothing to do with Comey’s firing or the most recent termination of the former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

“No circumstances, other than I had just accepted an offer from Brownstein some weeks earlier, so I happened to make the transition this week,” Brower told BuzzFeed News. “I think Chris Wray’s doing an outstanding job, and I have an excellent working relationship with Chris, but I couldn’t pass up the offer.”
