Atlanta Lawyer Nominated as FBI Director

Christopher Wray, an attorney with King & Spalding, was tapped by President Trump to lead the FBI. 

I’m sure the announcement’s timing is completely coincidental to James Comey’s testimony beginning on Thursday. Right?

Wray has an office in D.C. and Atlanta. CNN erroneously referred to King & Spalding as a D.C.-based law firm which would be news to the law firm’s HQ in Atlanta. Wray has strong credentials with the DoJ leading the criminal division under President George W. Bush.

Sen. David Perdue:

“Today President Trump chose former Atlanta federal prosecutor, Christopher Wray, to lead our nation’s highest law enforcement agency. Mr. Wray has proven he is dedicated to upholding our nation’s laws and seeking justice. His work with DOJ on major cases like the Enron scandal and September 11th terrorist attacks make him an ideal candidate for this very important job.”

Sen. Johnny Isakson:

“Chris Wray has exceptional experience, including as a former federal prosecutor in Atlanta and assistant attorney general, that I believe will serve him well as head of the FBI. Ultimately, we need an FBI director who is dedicated to upholding the rule of law and honoring the trust that the American people place in our justice system.”

King & Spalding? Obviously a true public servant to take a pay cut of that magnitude.
