President Trump nominates Christopher Wray as FBI director

President Trump has announced he will nominate former Justice Department official Christopher Wray as his pick for FBI director.
Mr Wray, a litigation lawyer with King & Spalding in Washington and Atlanta, previously served as assistant attorney general in charge of the Justice Department's Criminal Division from 2003 to 2005 under President George W Bush.

He was also New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's lawyer during the investigation into the George Washington Bridge lane-closure case.

Two former aides of Mr Christie were convicted of plotting to close bridge lanes to punish a Democratic mayor who would not endorse the Republican governor.
Writing on Twitter, Mr Trump said: "I will be nominating Christopher A Wray, a man of impeccable credentials, to be the new director of the FBI. Details to follow."
