How to Become a Bounty Hunter



President’s Choice for FBI Director Supported Trump Foes Comey, Yates

FBI Director nominee Christopher Wray

Donald Trump’s choice for the next FBI director doesn’t see eye-to-eye with the president on two former high-ranking Justice Department officials.

Roll Call reports that Christopher Wray previously voiced support for FBI Director James Comey and acting Attorney General Sally Yates, both of whom have been fired by Trump. 

Wray, for example, was among 10 former DOJ officials who expressed support in a letter to the Senate for Comey’s nomination to lead the FBI in 2013. The letter lauded Comey for his “integrity and independence.”

In another letter, Wray was among 12 former DOJ officials who recommended Yate’s nomination to the No. 2 post in the Justice Department, saying she garnered the respect of her peers “both in the Department and out.”

The recommendations are inconvenient for a president who has claimed Comey and Yates are partisan hacks bent on taking down Trump.
