FBI Director, James Comey (R), Is On A Fixed 10-Year Term, BUT Can Be Removed By President.
From “Congressional Research Service“,

Some claims in the media today, in reference to the James Comey, Clinton e-mail server fiasco, that a President can’t fire the FBI Director is patently FALSE. That the usually impeccable Andrea Mitchell would get that wrong on “Meet the Press” (on October 30, 2016) pretty amazing.
Of course a president can remove the FBI Director. Otherwise we could end up in some bad situations.
Ironically and interestingly the ONLY FBI Director to have been fired by a President was by a President Clinton! (That was ‘William S. Sessions’ in July 1993).
