President Trump nominated lifetime prosecutor Christopher Wray to replace James Comey as director of the FBI.

Wray received widespread praise from people like Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) for his resume and apolitical character.

"The Fox News Specialists" discussed one of Wray's connections that may or may not cause trouble for his nomination.

Wray has ties to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who is unpopular in the Garden State and elsewhere.

Wray defended Christie in his "BridgeGate" case, wherein Chrisite was accused of using his power to shut down several lanes of the George Washington Bridge.

The shutdown was allegedly in response to Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich's (D) refusal to endorse Christie for reelection.

Christie was not charged in the case, but a former aide was. Rev. Darrell Scott said Wray's Christie connections should not be a setback.

"Anyone is an upgrade over Comey," he said, adding that Don Knotts' "Barney Fife" would be better than the Yonkers, N.Y. native.
