Trump to Nominate Christopher Wray as New FBI Director
US President Donald Trump had fired former FBI Director James Comey last month.
US President Donald Trump announced on 7 June that he is tapping lawyer and former Justice Department official Christopher Wray to serve as his new FBI director, on the eve of critical testimony by the intelligence agency chief he ousted.
Wray, a litigation attorney with law firm King and Spalding in Washington and Atlanta, previously served as assistant attorney general in charge of the Justice Department's Criminal Division from 2003 to 2005, under President George W Bush.
Wray emerged from a list of former prosecutors, politicians, and law enforcement officials interviewed by Trump since the president fired FBI Director James Comey last month.
