“You reviewed them for purposes of separating from tip line traffic but did not further investigate the ones that related to Kavanaugh, correct?” Whitehouse asked in reference to the more than 4,500 tips collected by the FBI.
Director Wray responded, “Correct.”
When asked by Whitehouse whether the FBI took direction from the Trump White House as to whom the FBI could question, Wray responded that the agency did take direction from the White House since it was the requesting entity.
Following the exchange, Whitehouse posted to Twitter, “Here’s a thought: nothing prevented Trump White House from using FBI tip line information to direct FBI investigation away from percipient or corroborating witnesses.”
Thee is no specific date it began. But from roughly the lead-up to the first impeachment hearings against President Trump, Republicans have run a scam in which they continually whine about non-existent persecution form federal law enforcement agencies. In return, Democrats have defended the Department of Justice and FBI, the Capitol police, federal courts, and.... well, you get the idea.
It has gotten so out-of-hand that Democrats and the mainstream media even have defended Christopher Wray, who by almost any measure, has not been a effective head of the FBI. The charge from Republican officials and conservatives in social media that Wray has discriminated on behalf of Democrats against them is farcical and a prime example of the disinformation undergirding the Republican Party of today.
