President Trump Nominates Christopher Wray as FBI Director 

President Trump has formally sent Christopher Wray’s Nomination for FBI Director to the Senate nearly three weeks after announcing the Pick in a Tweet, the White House announced Monday.

“I am honored and humbled to be nominated by the President to lead the FBI, the premier law enforcement organization in the world,” Wray, 50, said in a Statement released by the Justice Department.

The Yale Law Graduate launched his Career at the Department in 2001, serving as Assistant Attorney General for the DOJ’s Criminal Division from 2003 to 2005 and Overseeing the Enron Task Force and War on Terror Cases.

In 2005 he joined the Private Firm King and Spalding, where he Defended White-Collar Clients and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie during the infamous Bridgegate Scandal.

“From my earliest days working with agents as a line prosecutor to my time working with them at the Department of Justice in the aftermath of 9/11, I have been inspired by the men and women of the FBI – inspired by their professionalism, integrity, courage, and sacrifice for the public,” Wray said. “If confirmed, it will be a privilege and honor to once again work with them.”
