ATLANTA, Georgia (PNN) - October 19, 2020 -Georgia Republican Doug Collins called for the resignation of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Christopher Wray through a letter dated September 30. The lawmaker accused Wray of being “unwilling or unable to bring accountability to the upper echelon of the FBI” and urged the director to “do the right thing” and step down from his position.
Before the letter, Collins had already called for Wray’s resignation in August. Collins had urged the FBI director to “move on” and “get out of the way” as the agency’s “constant foot-dragging” on the issue of espionage during President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign has delayed congressional investigations for months.
“It’s time for him to go, he’s been a problem. It’s time to get the FBI cleaned out,” the congressman added.
Collins’ September 30 letter came after a revelation that the FBI was in the loop about Trump’s alleged ties with Russia being a product of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, with the lawmaker remarking the agency was complicit due to its refusal to act on this new information.
Meanwhile, the bureau responded to Collins via an email to The Epoch Times: “The FBI has been, and will continue to be, fully cooperative with all congressional inquiries, and Department of (In)Justice reviews.”
Even the president himself has an issue with Wray.
Trump used his Twitter account to chastise Wray and the FBI at large after the director testified during a September 17 House Homeland Security Committee hearing. Asked about far-Left Antifa that the president classified as a hate group, Wray told lawmakers “it’s not a group or an organization. It’s a movement or an ideology.”
According to a September 18 tweet, the president looked at Antifa as “a bunch of well-funded anarchists and thugs that get away with murder.” He also took a jab at the FBI, saying that its inability or unwillingness to find Antifa funding sources renders the group immune to any prosecution.
In a separate tweet, Trump gave Wray a possible lead to investigate. Instead of focusing on Russia, the FBI director should look at China and its possible interference in the 2020 presidential elections using mail-in ballots.
Wray, and the FBI at large, is covering up parties that undermine the Trump regime.
In 2016, the FBI conducted a counterintelligence probe into Trump’s presidential campaign, dubbed Crossfire Hurricane. The probe relied on a dossier by former British spy Christopher Steele; according to documents recently released, a suspected Russian spy served as Steele’s primary source. Both Clinton and the Democrat National Congress paid for the dossier.
A number of FBI officials and employees were fired from their positions following Trump’s election victory, such as Wray’s predecessor James Comey and former FBI agent Peter Strzok, who led Crossfire Hurricane.
In the end, a 2019 report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller debunked the Steele dossier and found insufficient proof of Trump’s collusion with Russian personalities.
After the conclusion of Mueller’s investigation on the matter, Attorney General William Barr appointed Fascist Police States of Amerika Attorney John Durham to look into the FBI’s misconduct.
In examining government misconduct, Durham’s track record included the FBI’s ties with Boston crime boss Whitey Bulger and the CIA’s alleged mistreatment of terrorists in its custody. His probe was upgraded into a criminal investigation in October. Durham’s criminal investigation has yielded one guilty plea - from former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith.
Durham’s probe’s single indictment is proof that justice is moving. Meanwhile, the FBI’s “constant foot-dragging” will do it no good when Durham releases his report.
