Senate Judiciary Committee approves FBI nominee Christopher Wray

July 20, 2017

fbiThe Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously confirmed Christopher Wray to be the next director of the FBI.

Wray’s nomination sailed through the committee, 20-0, winning the support of some unlikely Democrats, including Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.

Republicans could have advanced Wray’s nomination even without the support of Democrats, but they will need the minority party when they hold a final vote on the nominee before the full Senate.

Ahead of Thursday’s vote, both Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and ranking member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., expressed their support for Wray’s nomination.

    Christopher Wray’s demeanor when speaking reminds me of Forest Gump. I’m not enthusiastic about his nomination for FBI head honcho.

    Geez, President Trump could you not have chosen someone with a stronger and aggressive manner than this weak looking and weak sounding guy. Oh, yuck!!

    Why do some of these people seem to think when Trump puts them into a job they are supposed to ignore the person who put them there and remember they are not the president or owner running their own gov’t agency, they still need to answer to Trump who is the one elected by the people, not those put in charge of agencies by Trump. They were not elected, they were appointed by Trump. One thing you can say about Obama, when he appointed someone they did exactly as he asked, screwed the people any way Obama said to screw the people. Trump, his appointees seem to just go and do their own thing, no loyalty to Trump, it seems like.

    When he said he would run the bureau independently he lost me, when did any agency become independent of the Executive Branch? They need to be taken to the woodshed for a lashing and a damned good one.
