US Senate Approves New FBI Director

The US Senate has approved a new director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Recall that the previous one - James Komi - was dismissed from his post as head of the department by US President Donald Trump. The new director of the FBI is Christopher Ray. His candidacy was supported by a 92 senator from 100.

US Senate Approves New FBI Director

Christopher Ray, President of the United States Donald Trump called a man with an "impeccable reputation." This epithet Trump applied earlier - to everyone he promoted to government positions. And this did not prevent him from parting with the appointees within a few days after their approval in office.

Ray has experience in the American state system. Thus, under Bush Jr. from 2003 to 2005, he served as Assistant US Attorney General, holding the position of head of the criminal investigation department. Ray is a lawyer. At one time he was engaged in advocacy related to protection in the form of economic affairs. American analysts consider this very fact of the biography of Christopher Ray to be "liked by Trump".

Recall that the previous head of the FBI left his post against the background of allegations of an investigation concerning Trump’s alleged ties with Russia and “Russian intervention in the American elections.”

Previously, the intention to appoint 50-year-old Ray FBI director on his Twitter wrote US President Donald Trump.

    And when will Putin sign the appointment? smile
    Well now, the fate of the new FBI director is in the hands of the Russian ambassador to the United States, Kislyak. As soon as Sergei Ivanovich finds out the phone number of the director of the FBI and gets through to that, and the inexperienced director also, God forbid, answer - Khan's career! laughing

    Trump applied this epithet before - to all those whom he promoted to positions in government agencies

    After which he fired. Personally, I got the impression that Trump really likes to say out loud: "You are fired!" One feels the "grip" of the businessman. Have you appointed a new FBI director and what will change? Fearing our scouts immediately leave the United States, or what?

      "Poor" Scaramucci in the White House lasted only 10 days.

      Chekhard and chaos in the White House personnel policy are connected with Trump's lack of handshake in the US political establishment. Rumors and gossip from the Oval Office regularly leak into the unworthy local press, which quivers the president like a negligent donkey who does not want to go wherever it goes.
      Trump, as if he did not want to, will not be able to put loyal people to key posts - too many he crossed the road with his independence.
