President Trump has strongly criticized FBI Director Christopher Wray in response to the release of a Department of Justice report. He did so on the basis that the conclusions of the report are politically biased. The rapport showed that there was no political bias on the part of the FBI in its investigation into the conspiracy of the Trump election campaign with Russia. The report was released on Monday.
The President said that ´He[Christopher Wray] will never be able to make the FBI function properly again, despite the fact that great men and women work there.´. Trump also said that ´you have to look at the 17 instances of misconduct cited in the Report, they are very bad. The FISA Court was clearly taken for a ride on this, a failure of the FBI up and fown the chain of command. It’s about as strong a medicine as I’ve seen in a report of this kind.´
On Tuesday, President Trump tweeted: “I don’t know what report current Director of the FBI Christopher Wray was reading, but it sure wasn’t the one given to me. With that kind of attitude, he will never be able to fix the FBI, which is badly broken despite having some of the greatest men & women working there!”
President Trump also tweeted: “You have to look at the 17 instances of misconduct cited in the Report, they are very bad. The FISA Court was clearly taken for a ride on this, a failure of the FBI up and fown the chain of command. It’s about as strong a medicine as I’ve seen in a report of this kind…”….in a very long time.
In another tweet the President said that ´the FBI has had some dark day in its past, but nothing like this. This was VERY SERIOUS MISCONDUCT ON THE PART OF THE FBI.” @brithume @BretBaier Are you listening Comey, McCabe, lovers Lisa & Peter, the beautiful Ohr family, Brennan, Clapper & many more?´
Wray acknowledged the bureau errors cited in the IG report.
In an interview with The AP, Wray said the report ´identified problems´ that are ´unacceptable and unrepresentative of who we are as an institution.´ Wray also said that the FBI would ´make changes´ to how it conducts briefings on foreign influence for presidential nominees and how it structures investigations alike the 2016 Russia probe.
