President Donald Trump announces his pick for FBI Director

President Trump has just announced his pick for FBI Director 

A few details on Trump’s nominee include:

  • He served during George W. Bush’s administration as the former chief of the Justice Department’s criminal division, from 2003-2005.
  • He “was a member of the administration’s Corporate Fraud Task Force and oversaw the fraud prosecutions of former executives at Enron Corp,” per USA Today.
  • He left the Justice Department in 2005 to work as a litigation partner at the King & Spalding law firm.
  • He was Chris Christie’s personal lawyer during the Bridgegate scandal, and he has represented various Fortune 100 companies.

Trump critics have been welcoming of the pick:

  • Norm Eisen, a frequent Trump critic: “[Wray] is a good choice…”
  • Matthew Miller, former spokesman to Eric Holder: “Wray probably the best choice from the WH short list. His record in the Bush DOJ deserves scrutiny, but he’s a serious, respectable pick.”
