FBI Director Wray Covers for Deep State, Alleges No Evidence of Illicit Spying
FBI Director Chris Wray claimed earlier today that there is no proof any illegal spying occurred against President Trump, as he attempts to protect the deep state amidst an unprecedented level of scandal.
Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) posed a question to Wray while he appeared before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee about the FBI’s spying capabilities.
“I believe that the FBI is engaged in investigative activity, and part of investigative activity includes surveillance activity of different shapes and sizes. And to me, the key question is making sure that it’s done by the book, consistent with our lawful authorities. That’s the key question. Different people use different colloquial phrases,” Wray said in response.
Regarding the illicit spying allegations, Wray said, “I don’t think I personally have any evidence of that sort.”
Wray’s insubordinate comments seem to contradict statements made by Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr, who have not been shy about exposing the FBI’s spying apparatus.
“I think spying is a good English word that in fact doesn’t have synonyms because it is the broadest word incorporating really all forms of covert intelligence collections. So I’m not going to back off the word,” Barr said last week when being grilled by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

More attention is on the corruption of the deep state than ever before, and Wray’s unwillingness to admit the truth provides cover for them so that deeply corrupt individuals working to subvert the President can skirt accountability.
“The attorney general is seeking to understand better the circumstances at the department and the FBI relating to how this investigation started, and we’re working to help him get that understanding,” Wray said about the review conducted by the Justice Department. “I think that’s part of his job and part of mine.”
Wray is playing dumb, but the conspiracy continues to unravel in broad daylight. The New York Times revealed last week that a honeypot operating under the alias Azra Turk was used by the FBI in an attempt to ensnare former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos.
If Wray is unwilling to own up to the corruption within his own agency, it may be time for Trump to replace him with someone who will.
