acting attorney general. sally yates and christopher wray were assistant u.s. attorneys together in atlanta in the '90s. when you look at the possibilities who were raised as fbi directors, john cornyn, the republican senator from texas -- he's right there. coincidence! and joe lieberman, the sort of democratic senator from connecticut. christopher wray is a much less political choice, and i think many people in the senate will find that a relief barring any surprising disclosures in the vetting process. it seems like he's very likely to be confirmed. he was head of the criminal division in the george w. bush administration and the justice department. that's a job that is a highly respected job, but not an especially political job. so i think that's something that this choice is likely to be very popular on both sides. >> we're looking at the hearing room right now for the senate intelligence committee and there's marco rubio right there and we were discussing him.
