Time reports that the vote was 92-5 in favor of Wray, who formerly oversaw investigations into corporate fraud under President Bush.

Senator Amy Klobuchar had this to say during her introduction of Wray as the new director of the FBI:

“This is a tough time to take this tough job,” she said during Senate debate of the nomination. “The previous FBI director, as we know, was fired because of the Russia investigation. The former acting attorney general was fired. And we’ve had a slew of other firings throughout the government over the last few months.”
