The POTUS has finally named his nominee for the Fbi Director post that was vacated when Donald Trump fired James Comey last month. Earlier reports claimed the U.S. leader terminated the lawyer because of the way he handled the investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of a private e-mail server while she was still the State Secretary.

Comey was appointed as the seventh FBI director during Barrack Obama's term in 2013. He was also assigned to take the case of Russia's alleged interference during the 2016 presidential elections, which involved Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner.

In his letter to the then-FBI director, the U.S. president frankly said Comey was "not able to effectively lead the bureau" in these investigations. The POTUS added that it is important to find another leader who will perform his task in order to regain the public's trust on the agency.

Christopher Wray: who's the new FBI director?

Trump revealed he will nominate Christopher Wray to be the next bureau director. The American leader made the big announcement on his Twitter account on Wednesday. The POTUS described his bet as a "man with impeccable credentials," referring to his performance at the Justice Department's criminal division for two years under the presidency of George W. Bush.

Wray, a graduate of Yale Law School, used to lead the Enron Task Force when he was still working for the Department of Justice.

As the attorney general of the criminal division, the FBI director nominee spearheaded the investigations of securities fraud, money laundering, health care fraud, corruption, and some other federal cases.

His credentials include representing Chris Christie, governor of New Jersey, for his alleged involvement in "Bridgedate" scandal.

Before Trump could even announce his nominee for the FBI director post, the governor, in a recent interview, assured the POTUS "would not be making a mistake" if he will consider Wray to lead the bureau.

What's next for Comey?

Now that Trump has revealed his FBI director, Comey, on the other hand, is ready to defend himself from the president's previous claims about their conversation.

Upon terminating him from the post, the U.S. leader said the former FBI head assured him that he is not under investigation. Trump even insisted Comey has told him this not only once, but thrice.

Sources affiliated with the ex-FBI boss said the president may have misunderstood Comey's statements which led him to conclude that he is not under investigation.
