President Trump Selects Christopher A. Wray as new F.B.I. Director

WASHINGTON, President Trump revealed today that he has selected former federal prosecuter Christopher A. Wray as the new F.B.I director.

Trump in a morning tweet revealed his choice after much speculation of who he would pick, allegedly at one point zeroing in on Democratic Senator  Joseph I. Lieberman.

“I will be nominating Christopher A. Wray, a man of impeccable credentials, to be the new Director of the FBI. Details to follow ” said Trump this morning in a tweet.

Wray, a former assistant Attorney General under the Bush administration oversaw the Justice Department from 2003 – 2005.

Wray is seen as an acceptable and welcomed choice by F.B.I staff due to his background in Federal Law Enforcement.

He is likely to aleviate any fears from within the F.B.I that the President will attempt to weaken the agency.

Mr. Wray joins the agency after the controversial and abrupt firing of James Comey by the President in the midst of an investigation into the Presidents alleged ties with Russia.
