Trump the President of Washington DC lately announced the selection of Christopher Wray as the F.B.I Director. The decision was revealed by the president through a morning tweet without even alerting other members in advance. This sudden decision just came before congressional hearing scheduled on Thursday wherein James. B. Comey was to be herd for abrupt ousted last month.
The twitter announcement was then followed with an official statement wherein Mr. Trump announced Wray to be a qualified individual, who has been actively participating in fraud investigations and also has taken consistent antiterrorism efforts. He further stated that “Christopher will again take best efforts to serve the country as free guardian of law and model of integrity once he has been confirmed as F.B.I director by Senate.”
Christopher Wray is one of the safest picks especially in comparison to politicians who have always been kept outside the purview of such partnerships. With the appointment of Mr. Wray, people would be able to calm down on their fears who thought that Trump is trying to weaken or politicize the system of F.B.I.
Further Senator released in his statement that “Christopher is not a politician and also has sufficient background to be appointed in Federal law enforcement.” While specifying such facts, he further stated that these are the minimum qualifications, and above all Wray will have to show his commitment towards bureau’s independence. This independence is above all the things and should be given due importance in the entire career of F.B.I Director.”
During all this, Mr. Comey further questioned the appointment of Mr. Wray and shared his experience with Trump wherein he was forced by Mr. President to shut down bureau’s investigation of Michael T. Flynn the former national security adviser. In view of President’s constant efforts to block the truth, representative Nancy Pelosi of California said that “Nomination of Christopher should be subject to utmost scrutiny” such that right appointment can be made and no harm should be done to the ministry and general public.
To all this Faiz Shakir, national political director of American Civil Liberties Union came forward and commented “Wray’s potential with respect to independence, judgement and commitment is still questionable especially after considering facts that he and his firm is still handling legal work of Trump family, and also has the history of defending Trump’s transition during criminal scandal.”
With so many questions arising on the appointment of Chris, Alice Fisher came out with something positive about the man. According to him, Chris background of criminal division offers him excellent experience of working on national security, white collar crime and range of federal crimes.”
Undoubtedly the move made by Mr. Trump would be under the close watch of officials and every attempt would be made to scrutinize and authenticate the same. Some authorities have even demanded of beginning of impeachment proceedings such that truth can be found out and appointment of right professional can be made for the post.
