Van will be missed for sure. He is an exceptional leader and visionary. DOJ will have a very hard time replacing him.

Maybe Van heard about the Senate not renewing the current FBI Director...they walked in the door at the same time. Maybe it's time for him to go anyway...they both oversaw the FBI's case management debacle and have hung around since, right?
