Wray Confirmed By The U.S. Senate

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on Christopher Wray being confirmed as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

“I am pleased the Senate has confirmed Mr. Wray as the next Director of the FBI. As he demonstrated in his confirmation hearing, Mr. Wray has the experience, judgement, temperament and background to lead the bureau. 

“Mr. Wray knows the Department of Justice (DOJ) well and I enjoyed my interactions with him during his tenure as head of the Criminal Division.  As a former top DOJ official, he compiled an impressive record as a prosecutor.  He’s also well-respected throughout the legal profession. 

“Today’s bipartisan show of support is indicative of Wray’s professionalism and commitment to independence. I have no doubt the FBI is in good hands with Mr. Wray at the helm.”
