US President D. Trump handed over to the US Senate for approval the candidacy for the post of FBI Director instead of retired James Comi. The US President retired the former head of the FBI James Comi on May 9, stressing that he was not happy with the latter’s work. After J. Komi was suddenly dismissed by the decision of US President Donald Trump, the White House communique said that the search for a candidate for a new FBI director would begin immediately. In the end, the White House Press Office circulated a list of nominations from the D. Trump administration for the Senate, including Christopher Rey from Georgia, who previously served as Assistant Justice Minister, US Attorney General in criminal cases. Mr. Trump himself called Wray as a qualified specialist and stressed that this candidate in the past coordinated the actions of the US Department of Justice in the war on terror after the September 11, 2001 attacks. D. Trump expressed confidence that Wray, in case of approval of his candidacy by the Senate, would become “an inviolable guardian of the law.”
For his part, Wray stated that for him, D. Trump’s decision is a great honor. He promised that he would serve the law impartially if the upper house of Congress approved the appointment proposed by the President. In a written statement circulated on the occasion of the Wray’s nomination for approval by the Senate, he expressed the view that “America faces serious threats” both inside the country and abroad. At the same time, Wray assured that, in case of approval of his candidacy, he would adhere to the Constitution and laws of the United States.
