New FBI Director: I will resign before caving to demands from Sessions

Reportedly, Trump and Sessions put pressure on the FBI director and want all of Comey's friends out of the bureau.

According to a new report from Axios, Jeff Sessions has been pressuring the Director of the FBI to fire Andrew McCabe,…

If Wray were to resign due to a McCabe firing it would create a “media firestorm,” and the White House isn’t ready for another Comey-type scene. Also, according to an unnamed source, White House Counsel Don McGahn warned Sessions that the McCabe issue wasn’t worth losing the new FBI director over. Although McGahn has not spoken to Wray regarding FBI personnel, he is well informed about the pressure being applied to the Director.
