Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson went nuclear on FBI Director Christopher Wray concerning the way the bureau handled the investigation into President Joe Biden’s wayward child, Hunter Biden, and it was truly a sight to behold. I mean, can you think of many people more deserving of a brutal rebuke than Wray? Sure, there’s Biden, Harris, and Garland, but hey, Wray is still sitting in the top five at least, right?
According to the Daily Caller: “Johnson read excerpts of a letter Republican Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley wrote to Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland, which alleged the FBI engaged in “political bias” related to the investigation into Hunter Biden.”
“The problem I have is I simply cannot trust what the FBI is providing me, and I don’t say that with any joy in my heart,” Johnson went on to say. “That’s a travesty. The American people want to believe and have trust in the FBI. We want credibility, integrity restored to the institution, but Director Wray, you have not done that since assuming office, and I can go through a long laundry list of the reasons why that trust has been violated. I don’t have it right now.”
Man, that’s so brutal. I love it. The left needs to be scorched like this and held accountable for their refusal to do the right thing. Our nation was established on many principles, one of which was that all people should be equal under the law. No one, regardless of how much money they make or how many connections they have with individuals in high places, should have more favor in the justice system than those who don’t have those privileges.
And yet, Wray and his goons at the FBI seem to consistently look the other way when it comes to Hunter Biden. It’s almost as if they are doing the president a political favor.
“I’m happy to sit down and meet with you and go over these things in detail, but I would say, because ask me, ‘What can we do to restore trust?’ Start being transparent,” the Wisconsin senator added.
Here’s more from the report:
Wray disputed Johnson’s claim regarding the public’s distrust of the agency by arguing there has been a large increase in those applying to be special agents. He said the agency carries itself with “integrity and professionalism,” as well as “selflessness and rigor.”
“I do not accept the characterization of our performance in this particular case —” Wray said.
“That’s not how I characterized it,” Johnson said. “I’m talking about partisanship at the top with some specific partisan actors,” Johnson interrupted. “I said the vast majority of the 33,000 are people with integrity.”
“And the idea that I, as a Republican appointee, I’m a lifelong Republican, am biased in the way that you are describing makes absolutely no sense,” Wray said.
Having an “R” next to your name does not a Republican make. It’s about your record. Have you always supported conservative principles? Are you consistent in that support? Or are you an opportunist who simply sees a means of getting rich and powerful by rising up the ranks of the GOP?
“I’m happy to read you chapter and verse of all the reasons why that credibility has been destroyed,” Johnson finished. Mic. Drop. Man, that last line. Whew. There’s no coming back from that one.
The reason for this hearing with Wray goes back to two whistleblowers working for the Internal Revenue Service, the dreaded IRS, who have claimed the Justice Department dragged their feet in the criminal investigations into Hunter Biden which were connected to his failure to pay his taxes in both 2017 and 2018.
