"it was his #2, guy, James Comey, who appointed Fitzgerald.

I've read that Comey and Fitzgerald are long-time friends."


Mr. James Comey


James Comey was nominated earlier this month to the position of Deputy Attorney General of the United States.

On January 7, 2002, James Comey was appointed United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Prior to assuming that position, he served from 1996 through 2001 as Managing Assistant U.S. Attorney in charge of the Richmond Division of the United States Attorneys office for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Mr. Comey was educated at College of William & Mary (B.S. with Honors 1982, Chemistry and Religion majors) and University of Chicago Law School (J.D. 1985). After law school, he served as a law clerk for then-United States District Judge John M. Walker, Jr. in Manhattan, and worked for Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher in their New York Office. He next joined the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, where he worked from 1987 to 1993, eventually serving as Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division.

As a federal prosecutor, he has investigated and prosecuted a wide variety of cases, including firearms, narcotics, major frauds, violent crime, public corruption, terrorism, and organized crime. In the Southern District of New York, he served as lead prosecutor in United States v. John Gambino et al., a six-month mafia racketeering and murder trial. In the Eastern District of Virginia, he handled the Khobar Towers terrorist bombing case, arising out of the June 1996 attack on a U.S. military facility in Saudi Arabia in which 19 Airmen were killed.
