FBI Director Christopher Wray on Thursday rejected President Donald Trump’s claim that the law enforcement agency’s reputation is “in tatters.”

“There is no shortage of opinions out there,” Wray said, without mentioning the president, during a House Judiciary Committee hearing after he was asked about Trump’s statement. “The FBI that I see is people, decent people, committed to the highest principles of dignity and professionalism and respect.”

Trump has complained about the ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, firing former FBI Director James Comey over his handling of it and more recently complaining of bias after it was reported that special counsel Robert Mueller removed an FBI agent from the investigation for sending anti-Trump texts. "After years of Comey...running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters — worst in History!" Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday. "But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness."

Trump's allegations of political bias put Wray, Comey's replacement at the FBI, in the crossfire on Capitol Hill, with Republicans demanding he clean up the agency and Democrats insisting he do more to stand up to the president.
