Rep. Matt Gaetz ripped FBI Director Chris Wray during his Wednesday testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, excoriating the law enforcement chief and demanding to know if he was protecting the Biden family.
Wray was questioned regarding the alleged two-tiered American justice system and the use of federal law enforcement against conservatives. Hunter Biden allegedly threatened his father in a WhatsApp message and demanded money from a Chinese business contact in order to initiate the interrogation, according to Gaetz.
“Doesn’t sound like a shakedown, Director?” Gaetz queried.
Wray answered, “I’m not going to get into commenting on that,” to which Gaetz remarked, “You seem deeply uncurious about it, don’t you? Almost suspiciously uncurious. Are you protecting the Bidens?”
Wray said, “Absolutely not,” to which Gaetz again interrupted, saying, “You won’t answer the question about whether or not that’s a shakedown, and everybody knows why you won’t answer it. Because to the millions of people who will see this, they know it is, and your inability to acknowledge that is deeply revealing about you.”
Before claiming that “The FBI has broken so bad that people can go and engage in queries that when you come before the Congress to answer questions, you’re, like, you’re blissfully ignorant” Gaetz leveled perjury charges against Wray and claimed that the FBI was “using the FISA process as their creepy personal snoop machine.”
“You preside over the FBI that has the lowest level of trust in the FBI’s history. People trusted the FBI more when J. Edgar Hoover was running the place than when you are, and the reason is because you don’t give straight answers. You give answers that later a court deems aren’t true and then at the end of the day, you won’t criticize an obvious shakedown when it is directly in front of us, and it appears you’re whitewashing the conduct of corrupt people,” Gaetz accused.

More presumably incriminating emails have surfaced connecting Hunter Biden to several high-ranking employees in his father Joe Biden’s administration.
Fox News reported on Monday that “nearly a dozen current and former White House and Biden administration officials, including the president’s national security adviser and the secretary of state, have extensive ties to Hunter Biden, who is accused by Republicans of selling access to his father over a decade ago.”
The potential influence of Hunter within the White House is becoming more apparent, according to a new Fox investigation, as Hunter is scheduled to make his first court appearance on July 26. Hunter has been experiencing numerous difficulties. Besides a felony weapons allegation, he is also accused of two misdemeanor tax violations.
Both Hunter and Jake Sullivan, Joe Biden’s national security advisor, were affiliated with the left-leaning research organization Truman National Security Project for nearly two years. Fox reported that their relationship had ended when Sullivan joined Biden’s 2020 campaign.
