FBI Director Nominee Christopher Wray Appears Before Senate Panel

President Trump’s pick as head of the FBI is facing questions about the Trump campaign’s possible ties to the Russian government.

In the first day of his confirmation hearing, Christopher Wray went before a Senate panel Wednesday.

He pledged his independence, promising to lead the agency under the confines of the law and quote ‘the impartial pursuit of justice.’

Wray also told senators he won’t face the kind of presidential pressure his predecessor James Comey outlined in a series of memos last month.

With Republicans in control of the Senate, many expect Wray will be confirmed as the next FBI director.
