Graham Gets Testy With Wray Over Trump Jr. Emails

Graham Gets Testy With Wray Over Trump Jr. Emails”

"And there certainly shouldn't be any one-on-one discussion between the FBI director and any president about how to conduct particular investigations or cases". Ben Sasse (R-Neb.).

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Wednesday got the Federal Bureau of Investigation director nominee to say that people should call the Federal Bureau of Investigation if they are approached by a foreign country promising damaging information about a political opponent; and Graham also got Wray to state that the ongoing inquiry into all things Trump/Russia is not a witch hunt.

"It strikes me as just good sense law enforcement to come up with a way to make that tool readily available and more rapidly available", he said.

Trump fired Comey on May 9, igniting a political firestorm, and later cited the "Russia thing" as his reason.

Wray also represented Chris Christie in the Bridgegate scandal in which the New Jersey governor's aides purposefully closed lanes on the George Washington Bridge out of spite for a local mayor and played a major role in the U.S.'s response to 9/11, Politico reported.

Wray told Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., that no one had asked him for "any kind loyalty oath at any point in the process, and I sure as heck didn't offer one".

Wray was at the department in 2004 when Comey, temporarily serving as acting attorney general in place of the ailing John Ashcroft, was prepared to resign during a dispute with the White House over the reauthorization of a domestic surveillance program.

Wray may also face questions about his relationships with Comey and Robert Mueller, a former FBI director who was appointed by the Justice Department to serve as special counsel in charge of the Russian Federation investigation.

Mr. Way said the compliment meant a lot to him.

Wray said he had "no reason" to doubt the USA intelligence agencies' conclusion that Russian Federation meddled in the US electoral process.

Christopher Wray said in his confirmation hearing that he does not consider the investigation into whether Trump's team colluded with Russian Federation during the campaign a "witch hunt".

In addition, once confirmed as the man to succeed the fired James Comey, in accordance with ethical standards, Mr Wray will have 90 days to dispose of stock he owns in an array of firms including Apple, American Airlines, Wal-Mart and Exxon Mobil -estimated to amount to millions of dollars. Prior to Wray's nomination, Trump considered a number of candidates for the director position, among them McCabe, Sen.

President Trump's pick to head the FBI said he disagreed with the President on whether the investigation into possible collusion between his team and Russian Federation is a "witch hunt", one of many comments where he promised his independence from the administration if confirmed.

Graham asked Wray whether "witch hunt" was a fair description of the probe by Mueller. It's a question Democrats in particular are likely to ask. Al Franken (Minn.), said what seemed as though even the most skeptical Democrats were thinking: Wray passed the test.

Wray testified that "torture is wrong, it's unacceptable, it's illegal and I think it's ineffective".
