Chris Wray Gets Grilled Over FBI Criminal Activity

Protecting the Bidens, Fed Jan 6 infiltrators, getting gun purchase records without a warrant…….

New York Post

Sparks flew Wednesday as Rep. Matt Gaetz asked FBI Director Christopher Wray about whether the bureau is running interference for the first family.

Gaetz (R-Fla.) opened his questioning by reading WhatsApp messages from July and August 2017 in which Hunter Biden demanded money from a Chinese business associate.

“Sounds like a shakedown, doesn’t it, Director?” Gaetz asked.

When Wray declined to opine on the matter, Gaetz lit into him.

“You seem deeply uncurious about it, don’t you? Almost suspiciously uncurious. Are you protecting the Bidens?” the Republican shot back without missing a beat.

“Absolutely not,” Wray countered.

“You won’t answer the question about whether or not that’s a shakedown, and everybody knows why you won’t answer it. Because to the millions of people who will see this, they know it is, and your inability to acknowledge that is deeply revealing about you,” Gaetz rebutted, cutting Wray off.

The message Gaetz highlighted was released last month by Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee

“I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled,” Hunter Biden wrote to CEFC China Energy translator Raymond Zhao.

“Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand. And now means tonight,” the now-first son continued. “I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction. I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father.”

Rep. Wesley Hunt (R-Texas) also weighed in on the apparent “double standard” of the federal justice system when comparing classified documents investigations involving President Biden and former President Donald Trump.

Special counsel Jack Smith indicted last month Trump on 37 counts of improperly retaining sensitive intelligence material and lying about having done so to federal officials. Special counsel Robert Hur has yet to announce charges in his probe.

“Here’s what the American people know and believe about the FBI today, sir,” Hunt told Wray. “If you are a Trump, you will be prosecuted. If you are a Biden, you will be protected.”

…….Hunt pointed out that some critics have seized on Trump’s indictment as proof of the notion that “no one is above the law,” but remained silent about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s retention of classified material on a private email server.

“What about Hillary Clinton? And what about Joe Biden? And what about Hunter Biden, who is America’s favorite son?” he said. “Let me tell you something: I got a four-year-old daughter and a two-year-old daughter at my house. Hunter Biden, to me, is like glitter. He is on everything and you cannot get rid of him. And yet nothing is going to be done about this.”

Whistleblowers have come forward to say Christopher Wray has lost control of the agency; that the same FBI boss who shut down the probe into Hunter Biden’s laptop also pressured agents to inflate the number of “domestic extremists”, and how the agency suppresses evidence of Biden family crimes.

Wray admits there were multiple FBI agitators in Jan 6 protest.

Daily Caller

FBI Director Christopher Wray repeatedly refused to answer questions from Republican California Rep. Darrell Issa, who asked during a Wednesday hearing whether the bureau had informants among the Jan. 6 rioters.

Wray has repeatedly declined to say whether or not the bureau had sources among the Jan. 6 protesters and rioters, although defense attorneys have alleged in court filings that federal assets had embedded in the crowd. Jan. 6 defendants with connections to the Proud Boys have asserted that law enforcement had as many as 40 informants in the group. The FBI generally declines to say whether and when it uses informants.

“How many individuals were either FBI employees or people that the FBI had made contact with were in the Jan. 6 entry of the Capitol and surrounding area?” Issa asked.

“I really need to be careful here talking about where we have or have not used confidential human sources…” Wray began before Issa cut him off.

“Was there one or more individuals that would fit that description on Jan. 6 that were in or around the Capitol?” the congressman doubled down.

“I believe there is a filing in one of the Jan. 6 cases that can provide a little more information about this, and I’m happy to see if we can follow back up with you on that,” Wray said.

“I just want an answer. Was there one or more? I mean you would know if there was at least one individual who worked for the FBI who entered the Capitol on that day,” Issa pressed.

“I just can’t speak to that here, but I’m happy to get you the court filing,” Wray again demurred.

“It’s been two years, and you’re now come before us. The gentleman asks these questions, makes all kinds of insinuations, and you nod your head, yes, and then I ask you simply, ‘Was there one or more?’ and you won’t answer that,” Issa responded. “So I’m going to make the assumption that there was more than one, more than five, more than ten, and that you’re ducking the question, because you don’t want to answer for the fact that you had at least one and somehow missed understanding that some of the individuals were very dangerous and that there were others inciting individuals to enter the Capitol after others broke windows.”

The FBI framed the 6 January MAGA protesters by inserting undercover agents and informants in the crowd to encourage violence. It backfired, but that’s not stopping the Feds from persecuting people who simply wandered the hallways, stood outside the building, and peacefully protested. The FBI’s role was intended to be subversive and to gather as much intelligence on the participants as possible.

Why aren’t Tim GionetLuke Phillip Robinson and Ray Epps in solitary confinement with the rest of the political prisoners in their gulag?

The corrupt FBI sewer rats have committed egregious crimes against civil liberties to intimidate and suppress dissent. Since 6 January, FBI gestapo targeted an innocent man for attending President Trump’s 6 January rally, raided the wrong home in Alaska looking for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop, arrested a man for standing inside the capitol and waving a Trump banner, confiscated a Lego set from an “insurrectionist” and asked that citizens turn in their “extremist friends and relatives“.

Jan 6 protesters are being held without due process in Biden’s gulag while Antifa and BLM thugs walk free. They have been beaten and isolated by the guards.  Lawyers for one, a man called Ryan Samsel, say he was beaten so badly he has a skull fracture and is now blind in one eye.

One of them died awaiting trial. 

The FBI obtained gun purchase records from Bank of America, without a warrant, to target the lawful activity of American citizens.

Townhall

Testifying in front of the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday morning, FBI Director Christopher Wray was pressed on how often the Bureau receives private bank records, specific to firearm and ammunition purchases, without a warrant.

Under questioning from Republican Congressman Thomas Massie, Wray revealed the FBI receives private banking information “all of the time.”

“Bank of America, with no legal process, gave to the FBI gun purchase records with no geographical boundaries for anyone who was a customer. We’ve got an email where it says the FBI gave the search queries to Bank of America,” Massie explained.

Wray tried to explain the information is turned over when criminal activity is suspected, but firearm and ammunition purchases by lawful Americans are not illegal or suspicious. In fact, they’re constitutionally protected by the Second Amendment.

Last month Massie, in partnership with Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, sent a letter to number of bank CEOs asking if they were also engaged in the same information partnership with the FBI.

 

New York Post

…….An inspector general’s report that found millions of warrantless searches via Section 702 authorization were conducted on Americans in 2021. A Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ruling from last year that was unsealed in May identified 278,000 incidents of improper FBI searches on Jan. 6 riot attendees….

……Wray declined to answer the charge.

“Seems like a number you should know, how many times the FBI is breaking the law under your watch,” Gaetz said before showing testimony Wray gave last year to Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), in which the director denied knowledge of FISA authority being granted for Jan. 6 investigations.

“Did you not know when you were answering these questions that the FBI was engaging in these illegal searches? Or did you perjure yourself to Senator Lee?” Gaetz asked again.

“I certainly didn’t perjure myself at the time that I testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee,” Wray replied. “I didn’t have that piece of information.”

“It was a court order,” Gaetz cut in. “You didn’t have that piece of information because the court hadn’t yet rendered a judgment. Did you not know when you gave the untruthful answer before Senator Lee that this was going on?”

“It was a truthful answer. I did not believe FISA had been involved in January 6,” Wray said.

“But it was,” Gaetz responded, adding that Wray had also refused to answer an earlier question about a WhatsApp message first son Hunter Biden sent to a Chinese businessman that used his father’s political status to close a lucrative overseas deal, according to IRS whistleblower testimony revealed last month.

Jim Jordan blasted Wray for targeting Catholics.

Gateway Pundit

The Richmond, Virginia, FBI field office memo was leaked in February and detailed plans to investigate “radical traditionalist” Catholics. It relied heavily on criteria from the far-left extremist organization, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and detailed plans to place “informants” inside of churches.

During the hearing, Rep. Jordan asked Wray to define “radical, traditional Catholics.”

In response, Wray claimed that he was “aghast” when he heard about the memo “and ordered it withdrawn and removed from FBI systems,” adding that it “was a single product by a single field office.”

Rep. Jordan then demanded that Congress be allowed to interview the FBI employees who drafted the memo, but Wray said that it the incident is currently “working on finishing an internal review” and will provide a brief of their findings. He would not agree to provide the committee with the names of those who were involved.

Jordan then read from the memo directly, “Let me just read from page four, ‘Provide new opportunities to mitigate extremist threat through outreach to traditional Catholic parishes and the development of sources with the placement and access to report on places of worship.’ That’s pretty fancy language for they’re trying to put informants in the parish, in the church. That’s what this memorandum said, director, from one of your field offices, and you won’t let us talk to the people who did.”

“Do you think priests should be informants inside the church, director?” Rep. Jordan asked.

“We do not recruit, open, or operate confidential human sources to infiltrate, target, report on religious organizations,” Wray claimed.

“It sounds like you were trying to do it in Richmond, Virginia,” the congressman snapped back.

The FBI director claimed that, “That product did not, to as best as we can tell, result in any investigative action as a result of it. None.”

Rep. Jordan read more from the memo, “Richmond assesses extremist interests in radical traditional Catholics is likely to increase over the next 12 to 24 months in the run up to the next general election.”

The congressman then read from the same paragraph, “Events in which extremists and radical traditional Catholics might have common cause include legislation, judicial decisions in such areas as abortion rights, immigration, affirmative action, and LGBTQ protections.”

“It’s politics. That’s the motivation in the run-up to the next election and they talk about the border, affirmative action and abortion rights. It’s total politics. I mean, I think it’s interesting, that … we just got a decision from a bunch of Catholics who sit on the United States Supreme Court relative to affirmative action. Politics was the total motivation here and that’s what’s scary. That’s what I think is so frightening.”

Jordan pointed out that “Five people signed off on it, including the chief division counsel at the Richmond field office.”

The congressman also asked for an unredacted copy, which Wray did not agree to provide.

“I will find out if there’s more of the document that can be shared with you,” Wray said. “We’ve tried to be very careful in what we redact, and there’s always a basis for it.”

This:

 

And this:

 

The FBI has a lengthy history of corruption. They’ve broken the law and violated the Constitution. Wray commits perjury every time he testifies. We’re still waiting for the GOP to impeach, charge contempt, and force Garland to do his job and indict the Biden crime family.

The FBI and the DOJ need to be dismantled from the top down. The criminal malfeasants in both agencies should be indicted and prosecuted. We know that won’t happen because agencies weaponized by Dem regimes trample all over the Constitution while Congress does nothing.

All the hot air and indignation during oversight hearings are a dog and pony show.
