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.

Following the release of a four-page memo detailing rampant FISA warrant abuse by the FBI and DOJ, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) announced that he will seek the criminal prosecution of FBI and DOJ officials for the “full throated adoption of this illegal misconduct and abuse of FISA by James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates and Rod Rosenstein” who Gosar called “traitors to our nation.”
Gosar focuses on the memo’s claim that the FBI and DOJ did not mention that Christopher Steele, the ex-MI6 spy who compiled the dossier, was partially funded by the Clinton campaign and the DNC.
“This is third world politics where the official government agencies are used as campaign attack dogs,” Gosar said.
The letter reads in part:
“The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence memorandum on the FBI abuse of FISA warrants and targeting a sitting President is not just evidence of incompetence but clear and convincing evidence of treason….”
“I will be leading a letter to the Attorney General seeking criminal prosecution against these traitors to our nation.”
