With FBI Director Robert Mueller set to retire, the FBI Intelligence Analysts Association is weighing in on the type of person it would like as his replacement.
While the organization did not recommend a specific candidate to in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, it did say that anyone nominated must complete Mueller’s goal of turning the FBI into a threat-based, intelligence-driven national security organization.
In a letter, the group’s president, Clarence A. Stiehm II wrote that Mueller’s successor must be committed to both law enforcement and intelligence and foster collaboration among various groups within the agency, the group said. And the new director must be a “seasoned manager” who can lead a diverse organizations, Stiehm wrote.
Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that the letter was sent to President Barack Obama.
