FBI agents back Christopher Wray

FBI agents voiced their support Wednesday for embattled Director Christopher Wray, warning President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden that his untimely removal could "undermine stability" within the federal government's premier law enforcement agency.

The action by the FBI Agents Association, representing 14,000 active and retired agents, comes as Trump is weighing a number of key staff changes after the election, including the dismissal of Wray, who has served just more than three years of 10-year term following the abrupt removal of James Comey in 2017.

"Unanticipated changes in bureau leadership are challenging and can undermine stability," the association said in separate letters to the president and the Democratic nominee. "Right now, the FBI is confronting an even more daunting threat environment... This country needs stability in leadership of the bureau during these challenging times, and creating upheavals...after the elections can only undermine the goal of protecting the safety and security of our country."
