Trump to nominate ex-Justice Department official to lead Federal Bureau of Investigation

President Trump's pick to be the next FBI director is a former Justice Department official who oversaw major investigations into corporate fraud and headed a multi-agency task force that helped convict almost all the top execs involved in the Enron stock scam.

Trump made the announcement on Twitter early Wednesday morning.

Wray formerly oversaw the Justice Department's criminal division in the George W. Bush administration. That word came one day before the Federal Bureau of Investigation director that Trump fired last month, James Comey, was to testify in public on Capitol Hill for the first time since his dismissal. She served as acting attorney general during the transition period and beginning of Trump's administration, while Trump's nominee for the role, then-Sen. After that ruling, Christie's office revealed that Wray had the phone. Mr Wray works at the King & Spalding law firm.

Swaraj speaks to Iranian foreign minister, condemns attacks
In a message released by the Kremlin after Wednesday's attacks, Putin said Russian Federation "resolutely condemns" the violence. He said the men spoke Arabic in the video released by IS from inside the building, but that their nationality was not yet known.

Wray said, "We're more known for calmly and quietly diffusing a crisis or making matters go quietly away and keeping things in the middle of the road". He represented Christie in the lane-closing investigation, in which two former aides to the Republican governor were convicted of plotting to close bridge lanes to punish a Democratic mayor who wouldn't endorse Christie.

Wray graduated from Yale University in 1989 and received his law degree from Yale Law School in 1992.

Delaware Sen. Chris Coons, a Democrat on the Judiciary panel, said he, too, was encouraged that Trump's pick is a veteran of law enforcement "rather than a career in partisan politics, as was rumored over the past several weeks".

Apple's new iMacs get a big horsepower boost
He said the new iMacs have the "best Mac displays ever made" with the faster ever processor, higher memory and superfast storage. Graphics on iMac are much more powerful across the line with the new Radeon Pro 500-series graphics with up to 8GB of vRAM.

Ken Wainstein, former chief of the Justice Department's National Security Division, described Wray as "an exceptionally strong choice". Wray had served under George W Bush as an assistant attorney general from 2003 to 2005. Some Democratic lawmakers said the president's timing seemed created to distract from Comey's testimony and other congressional testimony on Wednesday.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Wray seemed like "the flawless kind of person" for the important job.

After some of the names floated for the Federal Bureau of Investigation job, the likes of Mr Christie himself and former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, Mr Wray will be regarded as a less partisan choice. Trump had tweeted regarding the new appointment where he called Wray "a man of impeccable credentials" and said details of the nomination will follow. In his first public remarks since Trump fired him on May 9, Comey is expected to be questioned about whether the president asked him during an Oval Office meeting to end the FBI's probe into ties between former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russia - part of its investigation into possible collusion between Trump's 2016 election campaign team and Russian officials.
