While speaking at a Senate Judiciary Committee oversight hearing on Thursday, FBI Director Christopher Wray did something that would have been absolutely unthinkable just one year ago: he admitted that there’s dirt on Hunter Biden and there’s an effort to suppress it.
That’s a clear indication of a bias within one of America’s highest intelligence organizations.
So where are we? We know the mainstream media buried the Hunter Biden Laptop From Hell™ story, failing to dedicate any meaningful airtime to one of the biggest political scandals in the last decade. And, now we know that an FBI Agent was labeling negative Hunter Biden intel as…
The Ministry of Truth strikes again.
Circling back to Wray for a moment, who finds the whistleblower allegations of partisan social media posts and efforts to suppress information on Hunter Biden “deeply concerning” —you’re late to the party, Chris. The damage is done and so is the bureau’s credibility.
Two names that popped up at the hearing, Tim Thibault, assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s DC field office, and FBI supervisory intelligence analyst Brian Auten, drew the ire of Senator John Kennedy (R-LA), who dragged them out into the light, laying their bias bare.
“Isn’t it true that Mr. Thibault — Agent Thibault, excuse me — and [Auten] covered up derogatory information about Mr. Hunter Biden while working for the FBI?” Kennedy asked Wray point-blank Thursday.
“I want to be very careful not to interfere with ongoing personnel matters,” Wray replied. “I should say that when I read the letter that describes the kinds of things that you’re talking about, I found it deeply troubling.”
Deeply troubling doesn’t even begin to cover it.
“I feel very strongly, and I have communicated consistently since I started as director, that our folks need to make sure that they’re not just doing the right thing, that they’re doing it in the right way and that they avoid even the appearance of bias or lack of objectivity,” Wray said.
While Kennedy acknowledged that most G Men are upstanding, Thibault is doing nothing to help the narrative that the FBI runs a tight ship —without bias.
“You’re killing yourselves with this stuff,” Kennedy said. “And this investigation needs to be completed on this gentleman and the results need to be reported to the American people.”
It’s starting to sound like we’ll never know.
