FBI Director: We Reported To WH Multiple Times On Porter Before Ouster

Source: TPM



By Matt Shuham | February 13, 2018 11:09 am


FBI Director Christopher Wray told senators Tuesday that the FBI submitted reports on Rob Porter multiple times before the former White House staffer left the administration last week amid allegations of domestic violence.
..........................................

“Was the White House informed this could affect his security clearance?” Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) asked Wray at a hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday, referring to Porter’s lack of a security clearance during his time at the White House.


...............................................

“What I can tell you is that the FBI submitted a partial report on the investigation in question in March, and then a completed background investigation in late July,” Wray continued. “Soon thereafter we received requests for follow-up inquiry and we did the follow-up and provided that information in November. And then we administratively closed the file in January.”

“And then earlier this month we received some additional information and we passed that on as well,” he added.

Rob Porter Background Investigation...

Sarah Sanders: “It was ongoing, hadn’t been completed.”


FBI Director Wray: “We administratively CLOSED THE FILE in January.”

In other words, the White House is covering up domestic violence AND Trump’s conspiracy with Russia.

1. "Soon thereafter we received requests for follow-up inquiry .... "

AKA the white house read the "dirt" on Porter, asked for more info, and still kept him on?

13. Black eye photo sent? And Shitler not informed so as to be given plausible deniability?

This one has legs only because Shitler refuses to mouth the words of concern he seems incapable of spewing from his pinhole pie hole.

14. "Soon thereafter we received requests for follow-up inquiry .... "

That puts the ball squarely into the White House's court because that tells me that
the White House was told a long time ago about Porter's abuse and either

A) Trump was told and he did not care

2) The White House was told about Porter and a person or persons did not
pass the information onto Trump.

15. Yes. Kelly. Who else? Kelly, for starters, not resigning is beyond the pale. Credibility...Kelly has

burned it all on this. But for Shitler it is loyalty over credibility.

without a security clearance. This WH is just making shit up everyday to cover their ignorance and incompetence.

And the GOP in Congress just doesn't give AF.

3. "A completed background investigation in July"

That's the key line. It was completed in July and the Trump administration was told that Porter could not receive permanent clearance.

"Soon thereafter we received requests for a follow-up investigation."

I take that to mean that the Trump administration knew in July Rob Porter could not pass an FBI background investigation. They tried to get a different outcome by asking for a "Mulligan"

Ted Lieu Retweeted Jim Acosta

The testimony of FBI Director Wray directly contradicts both @PressSec & @RajShah45. So did both Sanders and Shah decide independently to lie to the American people? Or did someone higher up in the White House tell them a lie that they then repeated?

Ted Lieu added,

Wray just contradicted WH timeline on Porter saying FBI “completed background investigation in late July.” WH spox Shah said last week background investigation was “ongoing.”

Dear @realDonaldTrump: In light of your statements defending and praising Rob Porter, you should read this article by Colbie Holderness. (If it's too long to read for you, have someone summarize it).

Credibility as the late and unlamented Dr Goebbels, I know which of the two sides I believe.

8. Of course the FBI reported their results; Trump/his admin just decided to ignore the results

so they could have their "good guy" in that position. Trump/admin think they are ABOVE the law.

Criminals covering up for themselves and other rw criminals, stealing from the working class/poor to enrich themselves and helping russia is what this WH and repugs all across congress do and that's pretty much it.

So -- Chris Wray is disputing the White House account? How can that be? Trump wouldn't appoint a disloyal FBI Director, now, would he??

This administration will eventually be run solely by people who are as vain, corrupted, and ignorant as DOTUS.

23. Sarah blamed it on the Office of the Black Hole that gets the FBI report.

The mysterious OBH loses memos, reports, all kinds of paperwork. Trump would defund that group, but their budget is unknown and doesn't show up anywhere. But it is their fault! Everything is always their fault!
