Biden to keep Wray as FBI director

Biden signs 17 executive actions, orders to reverse Trump policies

Fox News correspondent Doug Luzader reports on the latest.

President Biden is expected to keep FBI Director Christopher Wray in his post during his administration, Fox News has learned.

Biden signaled last month that he intended to keep Wray at the helm at the FBI.

Wray has less than seven years left on his 10-year term, which he began on Aug. 2, 2017. Former President Donald Trump, who tapped Wray to lead the bureau, had a contentious relationship with him throughout his tenure.

In October, senior officials told Fox News that Trump was considering removing Wray from his post should he win re-election.


Wray does not consider himself a political person, and has widespread support within the bureau.

In October, the FBI agents Association sent letters to both Biden and Trump in support of Wray finishing out his term.

“Collectively, our members strongly support Director Wray continuing his 10-year term,” the association wrote. “FBI special agents respect Director Wray’s leadership and look forward to continuing to work with him to protect this great country from national security and criminal threats.”

The association also defended Wray, saying he “operates independently from partisan activities,” and warned that any changes to bureau leadership could pose a risk to national security.
