FBI Director Christopher Wray sat before the House Judiciary Committee to answer questions about the apparent unbalanced investigatory efforts within his agency. As expected, while Republican lawmakers grilled Wray about how the law enforcement agency he took over was conducting investigations like the apparent biased practices in favor of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, all Democrats did was harp on the Trump/Russian collusion narrative, as well as talk about protecting the special counsel.The members, including Reps. Sheila Jackson-Lee, Hank Johnson, and Ted Deutch, all tried to make the hearing about President Trump and his alleged Russia ties.
Rep. Deutch tried to bait the Wray into talking about hypothetical situations, prompting Wray to respond, telling Deutch that he was not “going to engage in hypothetical” scenerios regarding the President, or anything regarding how the FBI worked or works.
Deutch and others are desperately trying to protect a compromised Special Counsel Muehler from removal by President Trump, even as more ties between Mueller and Hillary Clinton are coming to light.
One of Mueller’s attorneys working on the Russia probe is Jeannie Rhee, a former partner of his at the WilmerHale law firm. Rhee has represented the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton during her private email scandal, where she somehow deleted thousands of emails off her private home server.
