Comey, who has told friends he intends to keep his Greens Farms residence should he be confirmed, would receive the money as a “full payout” of his interests in the company’s profit-sharing plan, according to a questionnaire filed with the Senate Judiciary Committee, Bloomberg News reported.

Should Comey be confirmed by the Senate, the money would be paid “prior to the date that I assume the position” as FBI director, according to the 32-page questionnaire, signed by Comey. The documents also showed his financial assets include $5.2 million in securities and his six-bedroom Westport home on three acres, which he purchased in 2010, valued at $3 million.

Comey, a former deputy attorney general under President George W. Bush, was nominated by President Obama on June 21 to take over the FBI. (See WestportNow June 21, 2013)
