During his confirmation hearing in July before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, Wray said he would not let politics influence his decisions.

Wray, 50, is a white-collar lawyer who served as assistant attorney general during the George W. Bush administration.

He will take charge of the country's top domestic law enforcement agency during a federal probe into allegations of collusion between the Trump presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

Wray replaces James Comey, who was sacked from his position in May. "Period." And he added that anyone who thought he would pull any punches as Federal Bureau of Investigation director "sure doesn't know me very well". "Those have been my guideposts throughout my career, and I will continue to adhere to them no matter the test". From May 2001 to May 2005, he held various high-ranking positions in the Justice Department, rising to the head of the criminal division in September 2003.

He was a federal prosecutor in the US attorney's office for the Northern District of Georgia from May 1997 to May 2001.

He also worked with Comey on the government's case in the Enron Corp fraud scandal in the early 2000s.
