Besides, Wray said Trump has not asked him to pledge his loyalty to him nor spoken to him about Mueller's investigation. The director's comments came days after Trump slammed the agency as a biased institution whose reputation is in "tatters" and "worst in history".
Strzok was moved off Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation over the summer after the text messages were discovered. There also have been attempts by the president's allies to change the subject, such as the claim that the real scandal was improper "unmasking" of members of the Trump transition team whose communications with foreign governments were intercepted by USA intelligence.

"The FBI that I see is tens of thousands of fearless men and women who are working as hard as they can to keep people that they will never know safe from harm".
Mr. Wray said he was limited in what he could say about Mr. Strzok because of the investigation, but he told lawmakers he would "take appropriate action if necessary" after the internal watchdog completes its review. But FBI directors traditionally have been low-key and stoic - with Wray's predecessor, James Comey, a notable exception.
"I don't believe anybody's above the law", Wray said.
