JULY 5'Robert Mueller, a Justice Department veteran, has been nominated by President Bush to be FBI director, succeeding Louis Freeh.

'I am very pleased by the president's decision to nominate Bob Mueller,' attorney general John Ashcroft said. 'I saw first-hand his strong ability to manage when he served as the acting deputy attorney general during the first few months of my tenure.'

If confirmed by the Senate, Mueller will be the sixth director of the FBI.

In 1998, President Clinton appointed Mueller U.S. attorney for Northern California. Before that, Mueller worked from 1995 to 1998 in the U.S. Attorney's office in Washington. Between 1990 and 1993, he was assistant attorney general for the Criminal Division at Justice.
