FBI's D.C. office loses boss to promotion
By Ed O'Keefe
Shawn Henry is moving on up to the bureau's criminal, cybersecurity and emergency response and services branch, reports The Post's Spencer S. Hsu:
Henry's move to a senior headquarters position means that the Washington office, one of the largest and most prominent operations within the 33,000-employee bureau, will soon see its third director in less than a year.
"It's not a question of [FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III] moving Mr. Henry out of Washington Field Office It's a situation where the director needs Mr. Henry in FBI headquarters," FBI Washington spokeswoman Katherine Schweit said. "The WFO is filled with . . . capable agents, analysts and personnel who are aware of and used to the fact that our leadership and management model includes changes at the top."
The FBI has promoted a string of top officials after the departure this summer of Deputy Director John S. Pistole to lead the Transportation Security Administration. As the incoming executive assistant director of what is known as the CCRSB, Henry succeeds T.J. Harrington, who was promoted to replace the bureau's associate deputy director, Timothy P. Murphy, who took over for Pistole.
