“I’ve got confidence in the FBI director,” said Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.). “Chris Wray’s processed what I think is very legitimate concerns about the way the bureau handled things and I think he’s in the process of realigning procedural changes that will assure everybody it shouldn’t happen in the future.”

“He’s great,” concurred Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) “I have nothing negative to say about him. I don’t think the president should be dumping on him. I think he’s excellent.”…

It’s “not all that different from other members of the administration who sometimes have had differences of opinion with the White House on a particular matter,” said Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.), who described Wray as “a very capable public servant.”

“I hope they can resolve whatever differences they have and both people can continue to do their jobs,” he added.
