White House aides are worried that FBI director Christopher Wray may quit over the release of the controversial GOP-authored memo which the bureau denounced, according to a CNN report. Wray’s concerns over the memo’s release are “being disregarded and cast as part of the purported partisan leadership of the FBI” and he will “rais[e] hell” in response, according to one source. The FBI Agents Association publicly stood by Wray in a released statement, saying they appreciate him “standing shoulder to shoulder” with the bureau’s agents and that “the American public continues to be well-served” by the FBI. The Daily Beast additionally reported that former FBI agents are warning that Wray must be prepared to leave his post if the memo is released.
