The president will nominate Christopher A. Wray to the position. Here is what the president wrote: “I will be nominating Christopher A. Wray, a man of impeccable credentials, to be the new Director of the FBI. Details to follow.”
Wray is a former assistant attorney general who oversaw the DOJ criminal division under President George W. Bush.
