President Trump announced he would nominate Christopher A. Wray as FBI director.
”I will be nominating Christopher A. Wray, a man of impeccable credentials, to be the new Director of the FBI. Details to follow,” the president wrote in a tweet on Wednesday.
Wray was a former assistant attorney general and led the Justice Department’s criminal division under former President George W. Bush.
The post had been vacant since May 9 when Trump fired then-director James Comey.
