A month after he fired James Comey, President Trump says he intends to nominate lawyer Christopher Wray to be head of the FBI.

FOX’s Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

Christopher Wray is a former Justice Department official who served under President George W. Bush and is currently a partner in the law firm of King & Spalding in Washington.

The President’s announcement that he intends to nominate Wray comes a day before ousted FBI Director James Comey testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

If confirmed by the Senate, Wray will replace acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who stepped in after Comey was fired last month.
