Christopher Wray, President Donald Trump's nominee to Lead the FBI, has
 been Unanimously Confirmed by the Senate Judiciary Committee. 

“Mr. Wray has an impressive legal resume, having spent many years as a 
federal prosecutor fighting violent crimes and public corruption. He’s received 
the Justice Department’s highest award for public service and leadership,
" Chairman Chuck Grassley released in a statement. "During his hearing, 
he spoke of his deep respect for the FBI in keeping Americans Safe, and 
he pledged that he ‘will never allow the FBI’s work to be driven by anything 
other than the facts, the law, and the impartial pursuit of justice.’ His 
unanimous support by the Judiciary Committee today is a strong indication
 of our faith in his abilities to lead the FBI, and I look forward to confirming 
him on the Senate floor."

Wray's confirmation was held last week. He was pressed on a number of issues, 
including how he plans to handle conflicts with the White House. He served as 
assistant attorney general to Attorney General John Ashcroft under President 
George W. Bush from 2003-2005 and was unanimously confirmed by the 
Senate for the position of assistant attorney general in 2003.

Wray's nomination now heads to the full Senate for a vote. He will replace
 former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by the President in May. 
FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has been serving as Acting FBI director.
