James Comey, a former deputy attorney general during the George W. Bush administration has been nominated by President Obama to replace Robert Mueller as the new FBI director. Mueller is term limited by law after 10 years as the director.

Yesterday, before the Senate Judiciary Committee Comey was asked to explain his "approving the Office of Legal Counsel memo allowing waterboarding, sleep deprivation and other enhanced interrogation techniques for captured terrorists" back in 2005.

He told the Committee that at the time he urged his boss Attorney General John Ashcroft to tell President Bush not to implement these techniques considering as they were torture.

However, when the memo authorizing the torture techniques (which Bush's National Security Council wanted implemented) came before Comey for his signature, he signed it. Yesterday he said, "I'm not sure that I did it right", explaining he signed the memo knowing he would soon leave the Justice Department.

When asked by the Committee, "Would he have abruptly resigned had he not already announced his departure, he replied, "I would have given it serious consideration", (how nice of you to say that at this time).
