House Speaker Ryan calls FBI nominee ‘perfect kind of guy’

House Speaker Paul Ryan sort of endorsed President Trump’s proposed FBI director.

Ryan admitted he wasn’t familiar with Christopher Wray.

“Wray right? I don’t know the guy, but I’ve looked at his résumé ” Ryan said at a press conference. “He seems like, to me, he’s the perfect kind of person. I thought we should have a career person take over the FBI, someone with a deep bench of experience. He certainly seems to fit that bill.”

Christopher Wray served as an assistant attorney general from 2003 to 2005 under President George W. Bush.

He was the assistant attorney general of the department’s criminal division.

Wray was a member of President Bush’s corporate fraud task force, and led the task force charged with investigating the Enron scandal.

Wray is currently a partner at the law firm King & Spalding. He acted as Gov. Chris Christie’s personal attorney during the Bridgegate scandal.

Wray will likely have no problem getting confirmed by the House of Representatives.
