President Trump says he will nominate Christopher Wray as the new director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to fill the vacant spot left by former director James Comey, who was sacked by Mr. Trump last month.

Wray has worked in private practice at King & Spalding for the past 12 years, but prior to that, he served as assistant attorney general from 2003 to 2005 under President George W. Bush.

An assistant attorney general from Georgia, Wray was nominated by George W. Bush to be USA assistant attorney general in 2003.

At the Justice Department, Mr Wray worked on corporate fraud scandals and cases involving U.S. financial markets, according to his biography on the law firm's website.

If confirmed by the Senate, he will join the USA federal investigation agency from King & Spalding, a top white collar law firm based in Washington DC and Atlanta, where he works as a criminal defence lawyer.

-Wray, 48, now works at the powerhouse law firm King & Spalding, where he connected with Christie during the investigation into allegations that the governor closed lanes on the George Washington Bridge as payback against a political foe.

He represented Christie in the Bridgegate political scandal that resulted in two of the governor's aides being convicted.

Before he was removed from the post, Comey was leading the FBI's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump posted the announcement on Twitter, declaring Wray a "man of impeccable credentials" and saying more details would follow.

Trump's pick of Wray - now a Washington-based criminal defense lawyer - came as a surprise: he did not figure on the initial shortlist of candidates, including several Republican heavyweights, being considered for the key role. Trump tweeted that his choice, lawyer Christopher Wray, is "a man of impeccable credentials".

Christie had previously said he "gave it to the government" a while earlier, but the USA attorney's office said it never had the phone. Over the past 12 years as a private attorney, Wray "has led investigation matters involving U.S. Attorneys' Offices in over 20 different districts around the country and almost every litigating division of the Justice Department", continuing Wray's governmental ties.

"I think a lot of people thought all the focus would be on terrorism and everything else would go into the ditch", Wray said. "He's an outstanding lawyer". Meanwhile, Mr Sessions's relations with the president are also said to have grown testy, in part because of his own recusal from Russia-related inquiries following the misleading testimony he gave in Congress about his own contacts with the Russian ambassador.

Wray graduated from Yale University in 1989 and also attended law school there, serving as an executive editor of the Yale Law Journal and earning his law degree in 1992.
