Just watched the vote so news may not be out yet. Not sure when he will be sworn in but it can't be too soon. No longer relying on a biased McCabe should be a relief to all who support the President. If he actually puts the rule of law first, without bias, maybe actual work will get done.

In three weeks when he says something even slightly negative about trump, the house judiciary will call for a full an recusal before he is fired on twitter. Calling it now.

Nice...

Lets wager on how long it takes before McCabe is out of a job / position. Considering he is under 2 investigations himself I will say withing the next 2 weeks.

I agree, McGabe is embroiled in some other stuff.

Wray looks to apply his experience in cleaning up the agency and hopefully focus on some of the other BS as well.

I for one will be keeping track of this man. Never heard of him until today.

The fact the vote didn't go down party lines speaks volumes in our current environment.

Yep, all we can do is watch and see.

He worked with Comey in NY

Still not sure why Trump selected him!

Time will tell!

But since most of the Government is corrupt, isn't it a little concerning/suspicious that they overwhelmingly picked this guy?

Probably a work relationship, nothing of real value. I'm sure many career folks have crossed paths once or twice.

Yeah, but not all government is corrupt. It isn't doom and gloom, yes there are some dirtbags out there.

Wray worked under Comey for two years, during which they were both working fraud and securities crimes.

Not that that means they were best buddies or anything, but I think it's worth mentioning. Not really sure when they "worked together" in New York, though, as I think Wray was already at DoJ in DC while Comey was still the US Attorney for southern New York.

OMG. Really??????????????????????????????????????????

He's got Russian ties????



Is everyone tied to the Russians in one way or another? They couldn't find one uncontaminated American to head the FBI? And yes, he worked closely with both Comey and Muehler regarding Enron and wall Street


“The most troubling issue that Wray may face is the fact that his law firm — King & Spalding — represents Rosneft and Gazprom, two of Russia’s largest state-controlled oil companies.

“Rosneft was prominently mentioned in the now infamous 35-page dossier prepared by former British MI6 agent Christopher Steele. The dossier claims that the CEO of Rosneft, Igor Sechin, offered candidate Donald Trump, through Trump’s campaign manager Carter Page, a 19% stake in the company in exchange for lifting U.S. sanctions on Russia. The dossier claims that the offer was made in July while Page was in Moscow.”

Is it me or does it seem there is a 100 investigations going on in every direction. It also seems that there is truly a lack of confidentiality at all levels too.

Agreed.

This past week, I've been very disappointed with republicans, we own EVERYTHING yet we couldn't repeal. Good, the American people can see who needs to be clipped.

Repealing entitlements is political suicide. ACA put tens of millions of poor people on insurance through subsidies paid by taxpayers.

Amazing, Congress and the fbi have several investigations going on.

I guess usually they do one at a time?

When they expanded the Intel community by nearly double under bush and had to hire lots of young subcontractors basically right of college to fill these new positions, what did you expect to happen.....leaks...

This is why the libertarians have been so against the invasion of privacy. 25 year old college grads as nsa analysts is a bad idea.
