Wray is a former U.S. assistant attorney general who oversaw the Department of Justice’s criminal division under former President George W. Bush.

He also has ties to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), whom he represented in the Bridgegate scandal.

Trump last month fired former FBI Director James Comey. The president’s announcement comes just a day before Comey’s highly anticipated appearance before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
