WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on President Trump’s intent to nominate Christopher Wray as the new Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
“Mr. Wray is an exceptional choice to serve as Director of the FBI. He has the experience, judgement, temperament and background to be a strong FBI Director.
“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.
“I look forward to Mr. Wray’s confirmation hearings and learning more about his vision for the FBI.”
