President Donald Trump recently announced who he would be nominating to replace the failed former FBI Director James Comey.
In a tweet, Trump announced that he would be nominating Christopher A. Wray as the head of the FBI.
Wray previously serviced as an Atlanta-based attorney who has worked in white-collar criminal defense and served in the Department of Justice under former President George W. Bush as the head of the Criminal Division.
“I will be nominating Christopher A. Wray, a man of impeccable credentials, to be the new Director of the FBI. Details to follow,” Trump tweeted early Wednesday morning.

Conservative Tribune reports:
Trump is certainly correct about Wray’s “impeccable credentials.” Wray is a graduate of Yale Law School, and clerked for a justice on the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. In 2003, he was nominated by former President Bush as assistant attorney general in charge of the Criminal Division, where he served until 2005.
During his 2003 to 2005 tenure at the Justice Department, Wray oversaw efforts to take on corporate fraud and clean up the U.S. financial markets, including a task force focused on the scandalous financial debacle that arose from the massive bankruptcy of the Enron Corporation.
His work heading the Criminal Division also included going after drug traffickers, intellectual property thieves and distributors of child pornography, as well as corporate fraud and other white collar crimes.
Wray also coordinated the investigation of the snipers who terrorized the D.C.-area capitol shortly after 9/11 and brought indictments that broke up several suspected terror cells operating within the U.S.
One thing we can hope for with Wray is that he will go after Hillary Clinton and charge her for all the laws she has broken over the years.
The witching hour has come for Clinton and it is about time that she ends up in a jail cell.
