WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General Jeff Sessions has sworn in Christopher Wray as the new FBI director.
Wray called the appointment the “honor of a lifetime” and said he is humbled and excited to serve.
Wray was overwhelmingly confirmed by the Senate earlier this week.
In a statement, Sessions says Wray “has the experience and the strength of character that the American people want in an FBI director.”
Wray was a high-ranking Justice Department official in the George W. Bush administration and has spent the last decade in private practice.
