As of June 24th, no word of his nomination or approval yet.
June 7th, POTUS Twited: I will be nominating Christopher A. Wray, a man of impeccable credentials, to be the new Director of the FBI. Details to follow.
WE need people with integrity, honor, and who follow the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
WE wish the best to the new nominee. And DEMAND a quick approval.
Christopher Wray was born in 1967 to Cecil Wray Jr., a partner at the Debevoise & Plimpton law firm, and Gilda Wray, a program officer for the Charles Hayden Foundation. He attended Phillips Academy. In 1989, Wray graduated cum laude from Yale University, then continued to earn his law degree in 1992 at Yale Law School. While at Yale, Wray was the executive editor of the Yale Law Journal. Wray spent a year clerking for Judge J. Michael Luttig of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Wray married Helen Garrison Howell in 1989. They have two children and live in Georgia.
Christopher Wray joined the government in 1997 as an assistant U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia. In 2001 he moved to the Justice Department as associate deputy attorney general and principal associate deputy attorney general.
In 2003 President George W. Bush nominated Wray as assistant attorney general in charge of the Criminal Division of the Justice Department. Wray was unanimously confirmed by the Senate. Wray was assistant attorney general from 2003 to 2005 where he worked under James Comey, then the Deputy Attorney General. While heading the Criminal Division, Wray oversaw prominent fraud investigations like Enron.
In 2005, Wray received the Edmund J. Randolph Award, the Department’s highest award for public service and leadership.
2005: Wray joined King & Spalding as a litigation partner in the firm’s Washington, D.C., and Atlanta offices. He represented several Fortune 100 companies and chaired the King & Spalding Special Matters and Government Investigations Practice Group. During his time at King & Spalding, Wray acted as New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's personal attorney during the Bridgegate scandal.
Too many scandals poised the Federal government's Alphabet agencies. WE hope the FBI will clean-up it's act, and return to be a valuable intra-State Investigative agency. WE DEMAND a quick approval! Why? He can always be fired. Any government official that dares to lie during a Congressional inquiry should be fired and replaced immediately. Any government official who insists on disregarding the Oath they took regarding the Constitution should be fired and replaced immediately.
