FBI Director Christopher Wray has tapped a former law partner to be the bureau’s next top lawyer as he tries to steady the agency after a series of controversies according to the Wall Street Journal.
Jason Jones, a partner at law firm King & Spalding LLP will become the agency’s next general counsel in August. Jones worked with Chris Wray when he left the DOJ to work at King & Spalding.
Jones will replace corrupt operative Dana Boente who faced criticism for his role in Spygate.
Rod Rosenstein is a partner at King and Spalding.
