President Barack Obama is expected to pick former Justice Department official James Comey as his next head of the FBI, a source familiar with the situation said on Wednesday.

If confirmed by the Senate, Comey would replace FBI Director Robert Mueller, who has led the agency since just before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Mueller is expected to step down this fall.
