While little has been said about Trump’s new pick to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) due to Fake News shouting “Russia”, the Republican baseball shooting leaving Scalise in critical condition, and the Dems pouring mega millions into congressional races only to lose… meet Christopher Wray, Partner, King & Spalding.
Trump had been looking at several candidates but never let anyone know who he picked as his nominee. They found out when he tweeted. Even Senator Grassley (R) Iowa and chairman of the Judiciary Committee said, “I learned about it from Twitter. But then, I learn a lot of things about the president from Twitter.”
Wray’s law firm, King & Spalding, is an American law firm with 129 years of service, founded in Atlanta, Georgia in 1885 by Alexander C. King and Jack Spalding. Today, the firm holds offices in Austin, Charlotte, Houston, New York, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and Washington, D.C. The firm has a London-based international arm, King & Spalding International LLP, which opened in 2003, and office or affiliates in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Frankfurt, Geneva, Moscow, Paris, Riyadh, Singapore and Tokyo.
In 2002 and 2003, Corporate Board Member magazine named King & Spalding Atlanta’s best corporate law firm, and in 2008, ranked the company among the top 20 law firms in the United States preferred by corporate general counsel to represent their companies on national matters.
Christopher Wray played a pivotal role in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, providing oversight of Justice Department operations. As head of the criminal division from 2003 to 2005, Mr. Wray directed efforts to deal with fraud scandals plaguing the corporate world. He is a well seasoned and highly regarded criminal lawyer and represented Mr. Christie in the aftermath of the scandal over traffic jams that rocked his governorship.
“I know that he will again serve his country as a fierce guardian of the law and model of integrity once the Senate confirms him to lead the F.B.I.,” stated President Trump in a statement.
Hopefully, Christopher Wray will get senate approval quickly.
