The Senate has confirmed Christopher Wray to lead the FBI, replacing James Comey. The vote was 92-5 for Wray, a former high-ranking official in President George W Bush’s Justice Department who has worked on white-collar crime and regulatory cases as a partner at the King & Spalding law firm. Wray inherits FBI at a challenging time given Trump’s ousting of Comey, who was admired within the bureau. Wray had won unanimous support from the Senate Judiciary Committee last month.
