FBI Director Wray Breaks With Barr, Backs DOJ IG's Findings On FBI Probe

Source: TPM





December 9, 2019 5:26 p.m.


FBI Director Christopher Wray affirmed Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on Monday that found the FBI did not improperly open its investigation into the Trump campaign and Russian election interference.


Wray told ABC News correspondent Pierre Thomas that one of the most important takeaways from the report is that he and his agency “fully accept its findings and recommendations.”

One of the other big takeaways, Wray said, was that “the inspector general did not find political bias or improper motivations impacting the opening of the investigation or the decision to use certain investigative tools during the investigations.”

“Including FISA?” Thomas asked.

“Including FISA,” the FBI director replied.

Wray’s acceptance of the report’s conclusions puts him at odds with Attorney General Bill Barr, who spun the report as proof the FBI’s investigation was launched “on the thinnest of suspicions” that were “insufficient to justify the steps taken.”

6. Since he wont be convicted in the Senate by the Republicans perhaps the way to go

after him would be via the various state bar associations he is a member of to get him disbarred?

5. Wray has been conspicuous by his reticence

I imagine being head of the FBI as one of the weightiest jobs in the whole world because the FBI is a standard.

and aren't getting on their knees to lick Trump's ass.

14. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court

It's a federal court set up by the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to oversee law enforcement requests for surveillance warrants against foreign spies inside the United States. It's supposed to ensure U.S. citizens are not spied on without probable cause.

19. So, basically we have the DOJ and FBI at odds with each other.

Trump not only negated his vow to defend the Constitution long ago, he is now willfully shattering the Executive branch of government into warring factions.

Trump: doing God's work (Trump's "God"...Putin, that is)

22. Is our top law enforcement officer in OUR country

Compromised by Putin and trump? Will he see prison ? Is he being forced to do this now? I think yes, yes, and yes. trump will be attacking FBI director Wray and the FBI very soon , and suggest it be eliminated, and a new agency to replace it , and with a name he wants, or like Putin has done in russia too. Barr will be held accountable for many crimes he's been involved in .
