(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Sunday, during an appearance on “Sunday Night in America” Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La., argued that FBI Director Chris Wray should make sure to correct the statements he made during his congressional testimony. As Johnson claimed, during the testimony, Wray had made “demonstrably untrue” statements during the House Judiciary Committee hearing that took place last week.
Johnson revealed that along with the committee chairman, Jim Jordan, they were creating a letter that would be issued either on Monday or Tuesday and would request the director to correct his previous statements. He added that they would specifically note which contradictions existed in his statements.
As Johnson argued many of the answers that Wray had supplied during the hearing were untrue, and this is part of an ongoing problem relating to the scandals that continue to be piling on top of each other. Last Wednesday, during the House Committee Hearing, Republican lawmakers questioned Wray about whether the FBI is politicized and pointed out the recent federal court ruling which referred to the bureau’s alleged attempt to suppress conservative free speech in connection to Hunter Biden’s laptop story, the COVID-19 pandemic and several other issues.
Johnson argued that he found it “stunning” how Wray had never mentioned the U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty’s injunction which limited the communication between the White House, the FBI, and the Department with social media companies over concerns about them trying to limit free expression. However, Wray avoided that question by arguing that his bureau was dealing with “disinformation” and was not concerned with protecting the Biden family following the allegations against Hunter Biden.
