Sen. Grassley on confirmation of FBI Director Christopher Wray

Posted: Updated:

Washington, D.C. -- Sen. Chuck Grassley issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate confirmed Christopher Wray by a vote of 92-5.

“I congratulate Mr. Wray on his confirmation to head the nation’s top investigative agency and am proud to have led his nomination through the Judiciary Committee, where he earned unanimous support.  As I have said before, Mr. Wray’s impressive legal resume and extensive experience fighting crime and corruption as a prosecutor will serve him and the American people well in his new capacity.

 "As important, though, are his commitments to political independence, to cooperation with Congress’ constitutional duty of oversight and to the men and women of the FBI.  He pledged that he ‘will never allow the FBI’s work to be driven by anything other than the facts, the law, and the impartial pursuit of justice.’ The good work of the FBI has been overshadowed recently by controversies, but I hope this confirmation turns the page and begins a new, shining chapter for our nation’s leading law enforcement agency.”
