FILE - In this Feb. 27, 2014 file photo, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James B. Comey listens to a question from a reporter during a media conference in San Francisco. The FBI director revealed new details Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015, about the stunning cyberattack against Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc., part of the Obama administration's effort to challenge persistent skepticism about whether North Korea's government was responsible for the brazen hacking. Speaking at the International Conference on Cyber Security at Fordham University, FBI Director Comey revealed that the hackers "got sloppy" and mistakenly sent messages directly that could be traced to IP addresses used exclusively by North Korea.

James B. Comey

Whether or not FBI Director James Comey was actually responsible for Hillary Clinton not being elected president due to his on again/off again inquiry into her handling of classified emails is a matter of interpretation.

Less subject to interpretation: Comey’s travel plans, which include a January journey to Jacksonville, just two days before the inauguration of Donald Trump.

Comey will be in Jacksonville at 10:15 a.m. on Wednesday, January 18, where he will speak to local leaders and VIPs at the FBI Jacksonville Division office on Gate Parkway.

In August 2016, Comey appointed a new field director of the Jacksonville office; Charles Spencer replaced the retiring Michelle Klimt.
