U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after the Senate’s vote to confirm Christopher Wray as the new FBI director.

"Chris Wray will bring character and competence to a city that is hemorrhaging public trust. Instead of more Washington partisan blood feuds and lazy hot takes, I expect that Director Wray will buckle down and get to work. This is good news for the American people and for the men and women who faithfully serve our country at the FBI."
