Live video: Senate confirmation hearing of new FBI director Christopher Wray

Jul 12, 2017

Christopher Wray, President Trump’s nominee for FBI Director, faces the Senate Judiciary Committee today for his confirmation hearing. Wray would replace James Comey, whom Trump fired in May.

Wray served in the Justice Department under President George W. Bush and currently works on white-collar crime at an international law firm. Given Comey's dismissal and ongoing investigations into Russian interference in the U.S. election and potential ties to the Trump campaign, senators are expected to press Wray on his independence and integrity.
