A Wray of Sunshine During a Challenging Time for the FBI

Making the huge intellectual leap that Mr. Wray’s nomination won’t be held up for too long by the useless members that call themselves Democrats ; who are in fact obstructionists and would rather see our country go down than do the right thing.

 

It’s a safe bet that near the war on Islamic terrorism here and abroad he will be  over, before he is approved. -:)

In the event that he is approved, his strong credentials may help in restoring the image of another Washington Bureau whose name and reputation have been sullied.

The FBI’s logo reads Fidelity, Bravery, and Integrity.

Did the former director, Comey meet those standards?

 

Voting for a Democrat is the same as voting for taxation without representation.

Big news from President Trump today: “I will be nominating Christopher A. Wray, a man of impeccable credentials, to be the new Director of the FBI. Details to follow.”

Meet the new nominee:

He graduated from Yale University in 1989 and received his law degree from Yale Law School in 1992.

He then clerked for Judge J. Michael Luttig of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

In 1993, Mr. Wray started working in private practice in Atlanta, Georgia.

In 1997, he joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia.

In 2001, he served at Main Justice as an Associate Deputy Attorney General and, later, as Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General.

In 2003, Mr. Wray was nominated by President George W. Bush as Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Criminal Division. He served in that position until 2005.

From his private-practice biography:

Christopher Wray is a litigation partner in the firm’s Washington, D.C., and Atlanta offices.

Mr. Wray chairs the King & Spalding Special Matters and Government Investigations Practice Group, which represents companies, audit, and special committees, and individuals in a variety of white-collar criminal and regulatory enforcement matters, parallel civil litigation, and internal corporate investigations.

The group has been twice recognized by Law 360 as “White-Collar Group of the Year” and described as “the premier firm in this practice area” by the U.S. News & World Report/Best Lawyers’ “Best Law Firms” survey.

As the Criminal Division’s head, Mr. Wray led investigations, prosecutions, and policy development in nearly all areas of federal criminal law, including securities fraud, health care fraud, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and trade sanctions violations, bank secrecy and money laundering offenses, public corruption, intellectual property piracy and cyber crime, and RICO.

Mr. Wray was also integral to the DOJ’s response to the 9/11 attacks and played a key role in the oversight of legal and operational actions in the continuing war on terrorism.

At the conclusion of his tenure in 2005, Mr. Wray received the Edmund J. Randolph Award, the Department’s highest award for public service and leadership.

One of Wray’s most recent jobs?

Defending Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey in connection with investigations relating to the George Washington Bridge toll lane closings.
