Senate Confirms Comey As FBI Director

July 30, 2013  | 

The Senate on Monday confirmed James Comey as the new director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation by a 93 to 1 margin.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) had placed a hold on Comey's nomination over questions about the bureau's use of drones on U.S. soil and the policies surrounding that use. After receiving a response to his concerns from the FBI detailing the "limited" use of surveillance drones, Paul released his hold.

"The FBI today responded to my questions on domestic use of surveillance drones by saying that they don't necessarily need a warrant to deploy this technology. I disagree with this interpretation. However, given the fact that they did respond to my concerns over drone use on U.S. soil, I have decided to release my hold on the pending FBI director nominee," Paul said in a statement explaining his decision.
