ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Donald Trump's nominee to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation Christopher Wray told a Senate panel on Wednesday that he will "never allow the FBI's work to be driven by anything other than the facts." Wray, a former Justice Department lawyer under former President George W. Bush, was nominated by President Donald Trump to replace James Comey, who Trump fired in May amid a probe into potential ties between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russia. "If I am given the honor of leading this agency, I will never allow the FBI's work to be driven by anything other than the facts, the law, and the impartial pursuit of justice. Period," Wray said in his opening statement during his confirmation hearing. He said he would "lead an independent bureau that will make every American proud."
