Early this morning President Trump announced, via twitter, his pick for head of the FBI. One day before former FBI director James Comey’s highly anticipated testimony  before Congress, President Trump named Christopher Wray to the top post. Wray was  formerly the assistant attorney general in charge of the Justice Department’s criminal division. He most recently represented Governor Chris Christie in the so-called Bridgegate scandal.
