So we’re left wondering. Indeed, Wray is not as controversial as Trump’s pick could have been. He’s not a stranger to controversy, either. After serving as assistant attorney general overseeing the criminal division under George W. Bush, Wray practiced law with the Washington firm King & Spalding. He also served as Christie’s lawyer when the former New Jersey governor faced backlash over closing a lane on the George Washington Bridge in an alleged revenge plot to get back at a Democrat mayor. Two of Christie’s former aides ended up going to jail in the scandal, though Christie was never charged. The Senate still needs to confirm Wray, so it remains unclear if the lawyer will get the job.
