FBI Director Heads To Hill After Trump’s Attacks On Agency

[ad_1] WASHINGTON (AP) — Christopher Wray faces a tough test four months into his leadership of the FBI: He must defend America’s top law enforcement agency against blistering attacks from President Donald Trump without putting his own job at risk.
