FBI Directory Lays Out His Approach

Oct 23, 2017

FBI Director Christopher Wray gave a speech on Sunday in which he laid out his top priority. He said that he is seeking to “usher in ‘a sense of calm and stability’ into the agency. Under former Director Comey, the FBI had a few tumultuous years with the investigation of Hillary Clinton and the subsequent investigation of Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential campaign. In his speech, Wray said, "In a society sometimes fixated to a fault on results, I'm somebody who's a big believer in the importance of integrity of process, and that's part of how I am hoping to sort of steady the ship.” He said that his approach is to stay “laser-focused on the mission and on the work itself — day in, day out, left foot, right foot, grinding away, following the rules, following the law, following the guidelines, trying to make sure that we're doing the right thing but in the right way, treating everybody with respect.” Previously Wray worked for the Department of Justice under President George W. Bush. He headed the criminal division.
