The Senate on Tuesday confirmed President Trump's choice to replace James Comey at the FBI.
Christopher Wray, a former high-ranking official in George W. Bush's Justice Department, was confirmed to a 10-year term. His confirmation wasn't in doubt: Democrats changed Senate rules in 2013 to only require a simple majority vote, which Republicans have with their 52 seats.
Ahead of Tuesday night's vote, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley praised Wray for having what he called "the skill, the character and the unwavering commitment to impartial enforcement of the law" needed in an FBI director.
"He has shown that he has the expertise needed to address the wide range of policy issues currently facing the FBI," the Iowa Republican said from the Senate floor.
