Given what was being disclosed, Democrats must have been alarmed. Although he stated in the letter that whistleblowers were not hampered by his letter, Attorney General Merrick Garland addressed a letter to Justice Department staff instructing them they shouldn’t be speaking to Congress. If that’s the case, why are you sending this letter now? It virtually screams cover-up and the notion that he’s attempting to stop individuals from speaking out.
But if he truly believed it would halt things, it doesn’t appear that it will.
Kurt Siuzdak, a lawyer for Bureau whistleblowers, said that FBI agents are currently informing him that Wray has lost control and should resign.
“According to FBI employees, the director has lost control of the organization, he stated.”
“How does this person survive, they ask. He’s going out. He must leave.”
“Mr. Wray was frequently informed of the issues within the organization but never took steps to address them, according to FBI whistleblowers who spoke to Congress about corruption and retribution.”
“This includes current allegations of sexual harassment and stalking, as well as previous whistleblower disclosures to Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee. As The Times uncovered last month, it apparently includes manufactured terrorism instances to boost performance numbers.”
“The FBI officers said they no longer have faith in Wray. All Wray does, according to Mr. Siuzdak, is enter the room and declare that we need additional training and that we are taking action to address the situation.”
The Republican members of Congress have been dissatisfied with Wray’s responses to all of their inquiries. The Special Agent in Charge of the Washington Field Office, Timothy Thibault, was one of the individuals mentioned in all of these allegations. Both the Hunter Biden and the Trump investigations have him engaged. He recently received the sack this week and was escorted out of the workplace. But when Congressmen interrogated Wray as part of their oversight duties, Wray was non-responsive. These were “ongoing personnel concerns,” he claimed.
Wray stated that he had to “catch a plane” when they wanted to continue questioning him for another 21 minutes. However, as we mentioned, he was using his private aircraft to travel to his holiday residence. Despite lying to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and saying he had other “business,” this is the case.
There are simply too many issues to be able to put an end to everything by dismissing Thibault and maybe trying to shift the responsibility to him. Republicans have vowed to clean up the FBI if they get control of Congress and have already promised to attack this like a hound after a bone. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) stated that the FBI is “institutionally tainted to their very core” if they buried proven material against Hunter Biden by classifying it as disinformation. The GOP needs to purge its ranks.
