Senate Confirms Christopher Wray as FBI Director

The U.S. Senate confirmed Christopher Wray on Tuesday as the new director of the FBI in a 92-5 vote.

Previously, Wray served as the assistant attorney general in charge of the criminal division of the Justice Department from 2003 to 2005. During that time he oversaw the Enron prosecution and played a leadership role in the DOJ’s post 9/11 response.

Since that time he has focused on white collar crime and internal investigations in the private sector including the defense of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie during the “bridge-gate” scandal.

The New York Times had called Wray a “safe, mainstream pick” now validated by only 5 Senators voting against his confirmation.
