With the hiring of Christopher Wray Neurotic Man has lost out on another job. Thanks to Donald Trump I won’t be FBI Director. That is, until he is fired or decides to quit. I was real excited for a while as candidates were turning down the job. But when Christopher Wray was nominated I knew I was in trouble, I knew he’d take it. After all, I figured this was end of the road type of job and Chris Christie’s bridge gate lawyer was perfect for the job.
Ah well, another job down the tubes.
“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 online.
Wray served as an assistant attorney general from 2003 to 2005 during the tenure of former President George W. Bush. He is currently a partner at the law firm King & Spalding, where he chairs its special matters and government investigations practice group.
Trump has been in search of a new head for the FBI since last month, when he fired then-Director James Comey. http://www.politico.com/story/2017/06/07/trump-fbi-director-nominee-christopher-wray-239238
“Wray was not part of the original short list as potential FBI directors being considered by the White House. According to a source, Christopher Wray was interviewed by Mr. Trump and his name began to emerge as strong possibility last week.
Mr. Trump’s nomination comes just one day before Comey is set to testify before the Senate Intelligence committee. An individual familiar with Comey’s thinking tells CBS News that Comey intends to present facts — not conclusions.” http://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-nominates-christopher-wray-as-new-fbi-director/
