BUREAU DRAMA

White House Concerned FBI Director Wray Will Quit Over Memo Release

White House aides are worries that FBI Director Christopher Wray may quit over the release of the controversial GOP-authored memo which the bureau denounced, according to a CNN report. Wray’s concerns over the memo’s release are “being disregarded and cast as part of the purported partisan leadership of the FBI” and he will “rais[e] hell” in response, according to one source. The FBI Agents Association publicly stood by Wray in a released statement, saying they appreciate him “standing shoulder to shoulder” with the bureau’s agents and that “the American public continues to be well-served” by the FBI. The Daily Beast additionally reported that former FBI agents are warning that Wray must be prepared to leave his post if the memo is released.
