FBI chief Wray admits ditching hearing for vacay on bureau jet

Source: New York Post

“FBI Director Christopher Wray confessed Thursday that he cut short his appearance at a Senate oversight hearing in August to take a break in the Adirondacks using the official FBI jet — confirming The Post’s initial scoop despite initially indicating it was a ‘business’ obligation. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) tore into Wray at a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing for his ‘indefensible’ conduct and noted that Wray had implied to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) he had to leave as part of his official duties. Wray’s hurried Aug. 4 departure — over Grassley’s protests — denied Republicans the chance to grill him over whistleblower allegations of a coverup in the FBI’s investigation into first son Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.” (11/17/22)
