McCloskey Speaker Series: A Chat with the Director of the FBI

In collaboration with the Aspen Security Forum

The FBI Director describes the Bureau’s role in national security generally and cyberterrorism and counterintelligence specifically. Director Wray began his career at the Department of Justice in 1997 as an assistant US attorney for the Northern District of Georgia and joined the Office of the Deputy Attorney General in 2001. He was nominated by President George W. Bush to serve as an assistant attorney general for the Criminal Division and played a key role in the Department’s evolving national security mission. After leaving the Department of Justice in 2005, Wray returned to private practice at the law firm King & Spalding until he was sworn in as the eighth Director of the FBI on August 2, 2017. Moderated by NBC Nightly News Anchor Lester Holt.
