Skip to comments.Revealed: The Criminal Chris Wray Gave the Senate the Finger Claiming He Had an Unmissable Plane He Had to Catch.That Plane -- Paid for By the Taxpayers -- Was Taking Him To His Weekend Vacation Venue, Of Course.

The luxury FBI Gulfstream Wray uses was recorded on Flightradar24 making the one hour and 12 minute flight later that afternoon to bucolic Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks, which happens to be a favorite summer destination since his childhood."
Chris Wray cut off U.S. Senators to "catch a flight" which turned out to be taking his taxpayer-paid G5 to a weekend vacation.
When is enough finally enough?
Christopher Wray's disingenuous testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday, before he left early on the FBI's private Gulfstream 550 jet, speaks volumes about the need to defund the FBI -- or at least dump its unctuous director. Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and his team of Republicans expected to have the chance to ask a second round of questions.
Grassley pleaded for just an extra 21 minutes.
But Wray took an early mark, dismissing the committee's constitutional obligation to ensure he answers questions under oath to ensure the FBI complies with the law and is accountable to the American people.
What was so urgent that he had to leave after just three and a half hours?
Was he taking a long weekend in the Adirondacks where his family has a summer home?
It's worth examining the exchange with Grassley in detail.
"We just heard a half hour ago about you having to leave at 1:30," Grassley grizzled. "We were going to have seven minutes [each] for first round [questions and] three-minute second rounds. I've got seven people on my side of the aisle want their additional three minutes. Is there any reason we couldn't accommodate them for 21 minutes?"
Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Sen. Chuck Grassley Grassley pointed out that Wray has a private jet and can leave any time.
Wray replied smoothly: "Senator, I had a flight that I'm supposed to be high-tailing it to outta here, and I had understood that we were going to be done at 1:30, so that's how we ended up where we are."
"If it's your business trip you've got your own plane. Can't it wait a while?" he asked Wray replied, "To be honest, I tried to make my break as fast I could to get right back out here."
Grassley, "You took more than five minutes."
Wray laughed and the silence that followed only emphasized the disrespect to all senators, but especially to Grassley, the president pro tempore emeritus of the Senate.
Note the Criminal Wray refused the specify the purpose of the flight, and refused to deny that it was for "business" purposes, as Grassley wrongly assumed.
He let a Senator continue believing a falsehood, so that no one questioned him about his insistence on leaving work early on a Friday again to go on vacation.
Wrong! He left early for the weekend on a Thursday. Had to be wheels up by 1:30 pm, he insisted.
And every appearance a waste of time, that simply showcased that Wray is a master of evasion. On some of the most serious questions of national security and the politicization of the FBI, Wray had nothing to say. Like Mister Magoo, he sees nothing.
Devine cites may examples of that, but here are a couple:
Wray also refused to agree with one senator's assertion that Hunter Biden's laptop was not "Russian disinformation."
He refused to admit that the Russia collusion hoax -- in which the FBI treated seriously palpably false allegations that then-candidate Donald Trump was a Russian agent -- was in fact a "hoax".
He refused to agree with Sen. Blackburn that Hunter Biden's laptop was not "Russian disinformation," and didn't respond to whistleblower allegations of an FBI coverup of derogatory information related to the Bidens in October 2020.
He refused to explain to Sen. Ted Cruz why the FBI had blacklisted patriotic historical American symbols such as the Betsy Ross flag, the Gadsden Flag and the Gonzales battle flag as "militia violent extremism" in training documents.
When Sen. Josh Hawley asked why the FBI was "snooping around the concealed carry permit records" of Missourians, he had nothing. Devine's evidence for the Criminal Wray's use of a government plane to fly him to a vacation destination? She pulled the flight records and reports it went to Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks, the Criminal Wray's childhood vacation spot.
The Gulfstream 5 took a similar weekend jaunt to the Adirondacks in June, again ferrying the Criminal Wray to a weekend getaway in the hills.
Wray ensured his testimony was useless, but if he did cut short his testimony to go on vacation at a time when his agency is under fire from all sides, then that is an act of disrespect and insubordination which requires a firm rebuke, or what is the point of Senate oversight?
Lake Saranac is beautiful this time of year, I’d want to be there, too, instead of covering up the crimes of the American Stasi.
There is a reason Biden kept this prick and it is the same reason almost every rat voted to confirm this treasonous scumbag.
Not to worry. Grassley will send Wray a “stern” letter of reprimand.
I am sure he needed to prepare for his transgender surgery.
His contempt of Congress is breathtaking.
These people had Steve Bannon charged and arrested for a legitimate assertion of Executive Privilege when illegally “subpoenaed” by an illegal committee.
Now the director of the arguably single most powerful federal agency laughs in the face of the Senate because he sneers at their questions, and...nothing. He gets away with it.
How long do they put up with this SOB?
Him, Comey, Mueller...all of them have abused power at a breathtaking level. Yet they walk, while the Little People rot in prison cells.
what is the point of Senate oversight?
For the sound bites and video clips so the Republicans can look like they’re doing something.
Good! Grass key and the other senators deserve this kind of treatment. I’d do it too. They refuse to zero out the FBI budget. They fixed a multibillion dose headquarters building at the height of their crimes being exposed, etc. When grassley has had the chance he has never done a single thing.
They deserve the finger until they exercise the power they possess.
Typos.., Grassley and a new FBI headquarters.
Explains the earlier news article about "elites" whining about the peasants tracking their flights.
Another example of why America is done for. I hate to say that.
Probably headed for a swim in Lake Clear, a taxpayer subsidized park. The locals take the entrance sign down so nobody else (the taxpayers that fund these parks) can enjoy their taxpayer dollars at work.
“Wray ensured his testimony was useless, but if he did cut short his testimony to go on vacation at a time when his agency is under fire from all sides, then that is an act of disrespect and insubordination which requires a firm rebuke, or what is the point of Senate oversight?”
Abusing victims brings narcissistic supply.
Doing so with impunity brings even more narcissistic supply.
Blatantly and publicly rubbing your victims noses in both your blatant abuse, and your famously impunitious untouchability? That’s “Narcissism Hall of Fame”-quality ballplaying, right there.
Gotta tip your cap to Wray in this instance. He’s setting a standard for deep state/Executive Service misbehavior that his colleagues will be working decades to match, if they ever manage to do so.
These parasites see the American people as blood bags to feed upon.
Ruby Ridge Remembered..
Why couldn’t about 500 freepers in the area show up with signs and chanting (place holders for torches and pitchforks) and make the fine folks up there quite miserable.
Senate doesn’t hold the purse strings, that’s the house.
When we take over we need to put restrictions on NGOs receiving funds to relocate people. They should not be relocating people who are not here illegally, they should have government funds cut off permanently if they are caught.
We also need to cut personal use of government assets.
