Joe Biden will not remove Christopher Wray as FBI director if he is still in the job when Biden expects to take office in January, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

Biden’s team was "not removing the FBI director unless Trump fired him," the Times quoted an unnamed senior Biden official as saying. The Biden campaign did not immediately return a request for comment on the report.

Such a decision would be a return to tradition for the FBI. Directors are confirmed by the Senate for 10-year terms, and rarely are fired. Trump fired Wray's predecessor,  James Comey, who was appointed by President Barack Obama, in May 2017.

Comey's firing triggered the appointment of the special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate possible conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian officials in 2016.
