Trump Regrets Appointing Christopher Wray as FBI Director?

Donald Trump, the former president, reportedly expressed sorrow over choosing Christopher Wray to lead the FBI in 2017. In a private chat, Trump reportedly called Wray “the worst member of my government,” according to a book by the former governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie.

In the wake of several allegations regarding the behavior of FBI Director Christopher Wray, President Donald Trump stated that it was “probably” a mistake to appoint Wray to his current position.

Trump chose Mr. Wray for the position after he decided to fire former FBI Director James Comey in May 2017 due to the way he handled an investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

With the termination of James Comey, the previous FBI director, in May 2017, Trump decided to name Christopher Wray. Wray was perceived as a more established member of the law enforcement community than Comey, and Trump believed that he would support his policies more.

Notwithstanding the fact that Mr. Wray’s appointment was easily approved by the Senate (92-5), the bureau director is now a prominent target for Republicans due to accusations that he assisted in “weaponizing” the department.

Putting Mr. Wray in charge of the agency was “probably” a mistake, Mr. Trump said in a July 16 interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo. He attributed the selection to his erstwhile buddy turned adversary, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

“Was it a mistake to put Christopher Wray there?” Ms. Bartiromo asked.

“Sadly, it probably was,” Mr. Trump replied. “You know, he was recommended very strongly by Chris Christie.” Mr. Trump has previously called Mr. Christie a RINO (Republican in name only).

Following a number of claims of abuse and overreach by his organization, Mr. Wray and his team have come under scrutiny. As the FBI raided Mr. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida to recover what officials considered to be secret records in Mr. Trump’s possession, criticism of the agency only increased.

In a heated appearance before the House Judiciary Committee last week, Mr. Wray defended the raid as the “lawful execution of a search warrant.” Mr. Trump has publicly disagreed, saying that his conduct is protected by the Presidential Records Act and that the case against him, authorized by President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ), amounts to little more than a political “witch hunt.”
