Almost three months after the firing of James Comey, the Senate finally voted Tuesday to confirm Christopher Wray—a former senior Justice Department official with a reputation for having a “low-key demeanor”—as the next FBI director. “He told the committee that he won’t condone tampering with investigations, and that he would resign rather than be unduly influenced in any manner,” panel chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) said. “Mr. Wray’s record of service, and his reputation, give us no reason to doubt him. He made no loyalty pledges then, and I expect him never to make such a pledge moving forward.” The vote was an overwhelming 92 to 5.
CYMI (like we did), Drake‘s dad finally released a music video for his debut single last week, and it’s really not half bad (Aubrey had to get it from somewhere, right?). Are you one of those folks who regularly complain about R&B just not being what it used to be? Then this one is for you. “Kinda Crazy”—which you may recall dropping last year—finds Champagne Grandpapi (good one, HuffPost) crooning about over a smooth and soulful backdrop. Record sales weren’t so hot for Graham last year, prompting him to cancel the release party he had originally planned for the video, but it doesn’t seem as if he’s giving up on music just yet. XXL, reports he also surprise-released his project on Tuesday. Watch “Kinda Crazy” below.
TeeTee Dangerfield, a 32-year-old trans woman, was reportedly found murdered outside an Atlanta apartment complex on Monday.
