(TruthAndLiberty.com) – On July 12, FBI Director Christopher Wray is going to be testifying before the House Judiciary Committee. The hearing is going to take place exactly one week after the House returns from the July 4 recess and will force Wray to face some of his toughest GOP critics on Capitol Hill.
In recent weeks Wray has come under a lot of fire as the GOP has requested information regarding his agency and a number of investigations. Those criticizing the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBIA, have also argued that the two federal law enforcement agencies have been politicized, with some claiming there was a two-tiered justice system against the Republicans.
Within the last month, the criticisms of the FBI increased as special counsel John Durham released his final report following a four-year investigation into the origins of the “Crossfire Hurricane” probe, which was looking into the collusion allegations between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia. Durham in his report determined that authorities did not have the evidence necessary to open this case.
Earlier this month Durham was also called in to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. Last week, the tension between the Justice Department and House Republicans was also heightened by the revelation that Hunter Biden had entered a plea agreement with federal prosecutors, which GOP lawmakers characterized as a sweetheart deal.
Wray’s hearing could address several topics including the Durham Report, the alleged weaponization of the agency, the leaked memo which referred to the agency targeting Catholics, and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
