On May 9th, 2017, President Trump fired F.B.I. director James Comey. Since then, Andrew McCabe has been serving as acting F.B.I. director.
On Tuesday, August 1st, the Senate voted 92-5 to confirm Christopher Wray as the new F.B.I. Director. Wray will take over the investigation into whether or not President Trump's associates worked with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 Presidential election.
Wray served as assistant attorney general from 2003-2005. Since 2005, he has worked with the law firm "King and Spalding," where he represented New Jersey Governor Chris Christie over the "Bridgegate" scandal.
During Wray's confirmation hearing, he promised to remain independent in the face of any political pressure from the White House.
