The Senate sets up a final vote on the confirmation of President Trump’s pick to lead the FBI.
Tuesday morning Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the full Senate would vote to confirm Christopher Wray later this evening after only four hours of debate.
McConnell added with all the threats facing the country he hopes his democratic colleagues will not launch a filibuster on an FBI director nominee.
Wray’s nominations easily passed through the Senate Judiciary Committee late last month after he vowed to remain independent from any political pressure.
He is expected to be confirmed sometime Tuesday with support from both sides of the aisle.
