(Washington) – President Donald Trump is considering former lawmaker Mike Rogers, a Republican from Michigan who served four terms in Congress, to be the next permanent FBI director, NBC News reported, citing sources familiar with the situation.
Rogers, who worked in the 1990s as an FBI agent, retired in 2015 from the House, where he served as the chairman of the intelligence committee.
He led Trump’s national security transition in 2016 until he was let go. His associates said his ouster was related to a purge of people brought in by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who was pushed out of his role leading the transition.
According to NBC News, Rogers’ associates also said he clashed with Mike Flynn, who was national security adviser but has since been fired.
A source close to Rogers said he has had “informal feelers,” from White House officials about his interest in the job. A senior White House confirmed Rogers was under consideration.
