At times slightly awkward, the performance demanded fully four and a half hours. During the recent comments made by President Trump on the ongoing Russian investigations, Mr. Wray told senators that he will not pledge loyalty to the president and has vowed to quit if the president would ask him to indulge into any illegal business.

People get too busy to follow what's happening in the news all the time, of course, and there are plenty of Americans who say they have deliberately stopped watching political news in recent months.

"Any threat or effort to interfere with our election from any nation-state, or any non-state actor, is the kind of thing the FBI would want to know", Wray said.

Wray said he would want Graham to consult with "some good legal advisers before you did that". "They have been my guideposts throughout my career, and I will continue to adhere to them no matter the test".

His responses to questions seemed to satisfy both sides of the aisle on the Senate Judiciary Committee, with many signaling their support for him.

Christopher Wray, President Trump's nominee to head the FBI, arrived at his Senate confirmation hearing on Wednesday. Should Trump Jr have taken the meeting, Graham asked?

"But I don't see any reason to call it a witch hunt - and I think it was incumbent on Mr. Wray to acknowledge that". "I view him as the consummate straight shooter", Wray told the committee.

"I want you to be Dirty Harry with the bad guys", Kennedy said, referring to a famous fictional police officer played by Clint Eastwood.

Graham then asked if foreign interference in U.S. elections warranted the FBI's attention. After a highly public firing, Comey revealed in June his belief that Trump wanted to create some "create some sort of patronage relationship".

"I don't want you to exhaust yourself trying to make political friends up here", Kennedy continued.

But some senators said Wray still has a long road ahead.

The position, including today's testimony, has an interesting undercurrent after former F.B.I. He said that when he was assistant attorney general for the criminal division, he investigated and prosecuted a CIA contractor who went "overboard and abused a detainee that he was interrogating".

Durbin said the emails contradict the narrative that the Trump administration has been pushing, regarding alleged collusion with Russia.

Wray, if confirmed, would be tasked with overseeing the Bureau in a tumultuous atmosphere. The president's eldest son tweeted out the exchange on Tuesday. Several high-profile candidates for the job did not want it. Merrick Garland, a judge who had been Barack Obama's pick for the Supreme Court seat left vacant after Antonin Scalia's death, was one of them, as was John Cornyn, a Republican senator from Texas.
