Senate confirms Christopher Wray, Trump’s choice for FBI

The vote was 92-5 for Wray, a former high-ranking official in President George W. Bush’s Justice Department who oversaw investigations into corporate fraud. Wray, 50, inherits the FBI at a particularly challenging time given Trump’s ousting of Comey, who was admired within the bureau. Wray won unanimous support from the Senate Judiciary Committee last month, with Republicans and Democrats praising his promise never to let politics get in get in the way of the bureau’s mission.

Asserting his independence at his confirmation hearing, Wray said: “My loyalty is to the Constitution and the rule of law. Those have been my guideposts throughout my career, and I will continue to adhere to them no matter the test.”

Trump’s firing of Priebus sent Twitter into frenzy

President Donald Trump’s firing of White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus on Friday and on Twitter sent the Twitterverse into a hilarious meme frenzy.
Surprisingly Trump chose DHS Secretary John Kelly as the new Chief of Staff to replace Reince Priebus. Many believe Trump plans to replace DHS Secretary Kelly with current Attorney General Jeff Sessions, since he recused himself on the Russia investigation. Some pundits believe Trump will replace Sessions with someone more loyal to him, like Rudy Giuliani. In the end, Reince is the third top official to resign or be fired in the Trump administration. First, Michael Flynn was fired, then Sean Spicer was replaced by Anthony Scaramucci and now Reince Preibus was replaced by retired general John Kelly. Who will be next to go in this game of thrones and political musical chairs?
