There's no more information in the two-sentence tweet that ends, "Details to follow".

Wray, who must be confirmed to the post by the Senate, and Comey served together in the Justice Department under former President George Bush, and both worked on the government's case in the Enron Corp fraud scandal in the early to mid-2000s. The New Jersey governor praised Wray during a news conference last week, calling him an "outstanding lawyer" with "absolute integrity and honesty".

Mr Ryan said he favoured a "career person" and that Mr Wray "certainly seems to fit that bill".

The American Civil Liberties Union says it has concerns about President Donald Trump's pick for Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

Comey grew so uncomfortable with Trump's meddling, the New York Times reports, he once asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions if he could accompany him to all future meetings with the president, or at least not be left alone with Trump.

The timing could also be aimed at blunting the impact of Comey's testimony before the Senate intelligence committee on Thursday.

During his appearance before the Senate intelligence committee, Mr Comey is expected to describe his encounters with the president in the weeks before he was sacked on May 9.

Reports say Comey infuriated Trump by refusing the President's demand to preview his recent testimony before a Senate committee, and by not exonerating him in the continuing Russian Federation probe.

A Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee says he's encouraged that President Donald Trump's pick to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation has law enforcement experience. "There will be a time and place to review him".

"I think it's more than a little curious that it appears obviously the president is trying to change the topic because we've got two days of hearings here that could be explosive", Warner said.

Now a litigation partner at King & Spalding law firm, Wray is perhaps best known today as the lawyer who defended New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie in the so-called "Bridgegate" scandal. The panel's top Democrat, California Sen.

Wray specializes in white collar law and internal investigations, according to the Justice Department site.

"All of us strongly believe Sally possesses the necessary qualities to make her an effective leader of the Justice Department, and we are honored to support her nomination to be the next deputy attorney general", the letter stated. "He is not well-known in national circles but he is someone well known in Republican circles". There are no records of any contributions to Trump. It was not clear if Wray personally represented all of the companies listed. The Justice Department later released an endorsement of the nomination by several former department officials.

James Comey, dismissed as Federal Bureau of Investigation director on May 9, is slated to testify before a Senate panel on Thursday about investigations of possible ties between Russian meddling in the 2016 US elections and the Trump campaign. Joseph Lieberman and Texas Republican Sen.

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.

"Wray comes with the right legal and law enforcement credentials for the job", Grassley said.
