Giuliani downplays reports he’ll replace Comey at FBI
Former New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani downplayed rumors that he could replace FBI Director James B. Comey, saying his plan is to stay in the private sector.
“There [will] be a lot of speculation … I’ll let you know if I change my mind, but I haven’t changed it,” Mr. Giuliani said on Fox Business Network. “I’m staying in the private sector.”
Fox Business reported that there is speculation within the FBI that Mr. Giuliani could at some point be tapped to replace Mr. Comey, the bureau’s current director.
“I’ll do everything I can to help him from the outside,” Mr. Giuliani said of President-elect Donald Trump. “I’m too happy in my law firm, in my cybersecurity practice.”
