  President Trump's pick to lead the FBI, Chris Wray, told a Senate committee on Wednesday that he would not be influenced by political pressure, pledging loyalty to the rule of law and insisting his investigations would be "only driven by the facts." Trump's previous FBI director, James Comey, has testified that the president pressed him to drop parts of the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia - and unsuccessfully demanded that Comey pledge him his personal loyalty. Wray said that "no one asked me for any kind of loyalty oath during any part of this process," and that he would not provide one if asked.
