Senate Confirms Comey To Head FBI

The U.S. Senate confirmed James Comey to head the FBI in a 93-1 vote late Monday afternoon.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was the only no ‘vote,’ though two senators voted ‘present.’

Paul withdrew his hold on the nomination earlier Monday after the FBI responded to his questions on the domestic use of surveillance drones.
