Skip to comments.‘It Should Be A No!’: Congressman Explodes After Wray Refuses Question On FBI, January 6
Posted on 11/16/2022 6:28:15 AM PST by Twotone
FBI Director Chris Wray refused to say Tuesday whether FBI sources had dressed as Trump supporters and entered the U.S. Capitol ahead of protesters on January 6, 2021.
Wray testified in front of the House Homeland Security Committee alongside Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and National Counterterrorism Center Director Christine Abizaid. During the hearing, Louisiana Rep. Clay Higgins (R) questioned Wray on the extent of the FBI’s involvement in the January 6 riot.
“Did the FBI have confidential human sources embedded within the January 6 protesters on January 6 2021?” the Louisiana congressman asked. Confidential human sources are not FBI agents; they are typically insiders in a group or well-connected individuals who have agreed to feed information to the FBI through handlers.
The FBI director said he has to be “very careful” about “when we do and do not and where we have and have not used confidential human sources.”
“To the extent that there’s a suggestion for example that the FBI’s confidential human sources or FBI employees in some way instigated or orchestrated Jan 6, that’s categorically false,” Wray said.
Higgins pressed Wray on if any FBI confidential human sources were dressed as supporters of former President Donald Trump and positioned in the U.S. Capitol “prior to the doors being open[ed].”
Wray began his response reiterating his previous answer when Higgins exploded: “It should be a no! Can you not tell the American people, no, we did not have confidential human sources dressed as Trump supporters positioned inside the Capitol on January 6?”
Wray responded as Higgins time for questioning expired, saying, “You should not read anything into my decision to not to share information related to confidential human sources.”

One thing about Wray. He doesn’t need to spend money on suits. He just buys XXLarge size condoms to wear.
“What are you wearing ‘Jake’ from the fbi?” “Uh, LL Bean classic khakis?”.
Wray is a snake just like Chris Christie who recommended him
Roger that. You can tell by the foreskin around his neck....
A Republican House majority should think about how to cause the FBI to be more responsive.
They’ll simply do the usual demokkkommie routine and ignore subpoenas, congressional demands and court orders. Weird how they can get away with that and nobody says 💩.
Maybe Wray should be asked about the Maricopa county FBI lawyer that represented Ray epps during his jan 6 committee testimony
Yeah, right. Because the Assistant Democrats will be all over this like white on rice.
Clay Higgins. Former sheriff in Louisiana.
Famous for his video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KjtGkrxnKA8
He’s forgotten more about law enforcement than Wray could ever imagine knowing.
If i were President tomorrow, Higgins is in the top 2 for potential FBI Directors with one main directive, reform it or get rid of it if it can’t be reformed.
Knowing some agents and being honest in that it would take a miracle to reform, many agents would welcome someone like Higgins. Those agents would be the ones that were former cops and in the military. The rest are your McCabe types that look down their noses at the folks that don’t mind getting their hands dirty.
The FBI gets a discount at Brooks Brothers. No BS.
That says it all.
What a weasel and he’s announcing that to the world with neon signs.
Another bad appointment by Trump. He’s a great campaigner, not such a great executive.
Revive the guillotine for Wray and Fauci.
So now we know that fbi operatives were in the crowd, urging it on to break into the capitol.
Quite right. And where the witness is a government official who will not be responsive the House member ought to cut through the word salad and be sure to get that on the record for obvious reasons.
WRAY: We have to be “very careful” about “where we...have not used confidential human sources.”
MEMBER; Quite right sir, and where you have not used a CHS in a circumstance that to do so would be illegal you would want to make that clear to this committee, is that correct?
MEMBER: Why will you not make that clear in this instance?
I’d like to ask him why few to none of the violent anti-Fa or BLM criminals who looted and burned American cities night after night were ever prosecuted, jailed or why all charges against them were dropped again and again.
