I have known Special Agent (SA) Robert Clymer since 1995. I would rate SA Clymer in the Exceptional category as to the performance of his assigned duties based on his outstanding productivity. If SA Clymer's statistical record of accomplishments were to be reviewed they would show a depth of indictments and convictions in a variety of FBI criminal programs to include White Collar Crime and Organized Crime cases. The quality of his work product would show that he wrote, organized and executed as well as assisted other Specail Agents in over 100 Search Warrants. He has testified before numerous Grand Juries with great success. He also wrote numerous Title IIIs (wiretaps) which were used in the successful conviction of numerous FBI subjects. His development of concise Prosecution reports to the United States Attorney's Office were a model for other Agents to emulate.
In late 2002 and early 2003, I had occasion to work with Special Agent (SA) Clymer in an organized crime / drug trafficking investigation into a methamphetamine trafficker by the name of Michael Schulze. Although Schulze lived in Las Vegas, his primary drug trafficking activity was in sending methamphetamine to Hawaii. The investigation showed that Schulze was the head of a drug trafficking organization which shipped nearly 1,000 pounds of methamphetamine to Hawaii over a 5-year period. FBI SA Robert Clymer was the primary agent assigned to assist our investigation in Las Vegas. SA Clymer always willingly and promptly assisted us with whatever tasks we requested. On one occasion I requested SA Clymer to locate an important potential witness and interview him. SA Clymer took the initiative to find the individual and used his interviewing skills to extract important information which assisted our conduct of the prosecution. SA Clymer flew to Hawaii during trial to provide testimony. In sum, SA Clymer showed initiative, intelligence and a pleasant helpful attitude which assisted our investigation and prosecution of the Schulze case substantially.

From organizing complex cases, preparing and executing search and arrest warrants to collecting evidence and managing informants, SA Clymer always gave everything he could to successfully accomplish getting the job done.
Special Agent Robert Clymer had worked organized crime cases in the Kansas City area prior to my meeting him and I relied heavily on his expertise over the years as i had many cases dealing with crime figures from that city who were living in Las Vegas.
