"I do not consider Director Mueller to be on a witch hunt," Wray told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

President Trump’s nominee to serve as FBI Director, Christopher Wray, told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that he did not consider Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign and administration to be a witch hunt.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) asked Wray, in light of the revelations about Donald Trump, Jr.’s meeting with a Russian attorney about information concerning Hilary Clinton, if Wray thought Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia was a “witch hunt” in his opinion.

“I do not consider Director Mueller to be on a witch hunt,” Wray told Graham.

As recently as Wednesday morning, President Trump tweeted that the Russia investigation is “the greatest Witch Hunt in political history.” He concluded the tweet, “Sad!”
