Trump names Christopher A. Wray for FBI Director

True to form, early this morning, Trump announced through Twitter, his pick for FBI Director is Christopher A. Wray.

Wray is no stranger to the Department of Justice – working there from 2003-2005. However, its his vigilance in going after RICO violators.

A far cry from James Comey and his dubious ties to the Clintons and other nefarious actors within our government, we can hope there’s some good things to come from a new FBI under his management.

The Facts…

  • Born in 1967, he got both his undergraduate and JD from Yale (1989/1992 respectively). He was executive editor of the Yale Law Review while in law school.
