FBI Director Wray Email: 'Truly an Honor to Represent You'”

On Sunday Trump said that the reputation of the FBI was 'in tatters' and 'the worst in History [sic]'.

The letter went on to say Wray is "inspired by example after example of professionalism and dedication to justice demonstrated around the bureau". 'It is truly an honor to represent you'.

The FBI did not respond to a request for comment on Trump's "tatters" remark on Monday. Trump has denied that he tried to impede the F.B.I. investigation into Flynn, portraying Comey, who wrote contemporaneous memos about his talks with Trump before the president fired him, as a liar.

Wray did not mention Trump in the message. No. The only thing in tatters is the President's respect for the rule of law.

He continued: 'We find ourselves under the microscope each and every day - and rightfully so'.

The two drafted an op-ed article last week about Mr. Manafort's work for Russian-aligned interests in Ukraine, according to court papers filed by Mr. Mueller's prosecutors in arguing for tougher bail restrictions for Mr. Manafort. Yet its law enforcement arm, the FBI, seems to think that it can be trusted with the "magic keys" of access to encryption.

He added that the agency needed to "continue to keep focused on our critical mission". "That goes with this job and always has".

He signed off from the email sharing one of his "favorite work ethic maxims: 'Keep calm and tackle hard'". The failure to protect and defend the department engenders anger, suffering, and resentment by the men and women they are charged with leading.

The FBI director told his staff in an agency-wide email Monday that the bureau should "expect - and welcome - people asking tough questions", the day after President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter that the reputation of the FBI was in "tatters".

The president's longstanding claim that no connections exist between his associates and Russia also suffered a blow on Monday evening when prosecutors revealed in court documents that his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, had been in contact with "a longtime Russian colleague" believed to have ties to Russian intelligence. Even the appearance of bias here is deadly because, as I once wrote in an analogous context, Mueller's work "will be judged not just through the legal lens, but also through the political lens", and its success "will stand in part on political factors". But they must do so in ways that do not compromise the Mueller investigation or their role in it. The President deepens their dilemma every time he attacks the Justice Department and the FBI.
