Just a few comments on the hearings with FBI Director Chris Wray.
At one point he said the FBI focuses on the violence not the particular ideology or motivations. He repeated that doctrine a few times.
So why does he make an intentional point of always mentioning white supremacists and right-wing extremists as a number one threat? Seems like that is all he cares about.
On two occasions, by Cruz and Blackburn, Chris Wray was asked about the threat information they had prior to Jan 6th, and who called for the National Guard or didn’t? He was reluctant to answer but did admit that a “local authority,” meaning mayor, declined or didn’t want the guard activated.
So if he is investigating this January 6th event, in the numbers he is saying, then wouldn’t he also establish the chain of who didn’t or refused to call the Guard? But he acts like he doesn’t really know such an important detail about the defense of the capitol. How could you investigate without knowing that?
Asked about the death of the Capitol officer, he did not know the cause or details of cause of death. Why not? And why were they telling us he was hit or beaten with a fire extinguisher? Suddenly he is now Sgt. Schultz and knows nothing.
About stonewalling Congress or not answering specific questions over the last four years, he has no answer. Then he is asked about FBI’s referrals or actions taken against anyone from the Horowitz report. His answer is that along came the Durham investigation which caused FBI to pause any disciplinary action in the matters. We must wait.
Chris Wray has proved himself just as competent as Comey and McCabe were. But he can tell you he made two significant minority appointments among 6 top-floor department heads.One Asian and one black. That’s a relief to know.
As to who knew what when at the Capitol, who can really know? Come on, man!
I don’t know why this would belong here but…..
