FBI Director Christopher Wray expressed he has “total confidence” in the team investigating the pipe bombs discovered by the Republican and Democrat national headquarters on Jan. 6, 2021, with no arrests as of now.
Fox News host Bret Baier pressed Wray on Tuesday, pondering how the FBI, which has been probing the case for more than two years, has not made any arrests on the matter. He also asked Wray if he thinks an arrest related to the planted bombs will ever happen.
Wray reportedly dodged the question, instead electing to answer that the FBI is continuing its investigation on the troubling matter.
“I will say that I have enormous confidence in the team, the dedicated team that is focused exclusively on that investigation, and we have devoted loads and loads of effort into that specific investigation,” responded Wray. “We have done publicity and calling for the public’s help. Our folks are working very, very hard on that investigation. And those folks, those FBI agents, analysts, and professional staff, I have total confidence in them.”
Baier also questioned Wray on if the FBI worked with informants or undercover agents during the protests that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Wray indicated there was “nothing” he could comment on in regard to the accusations but that his lack of an answer should not be interpreted as a “clue or hint in any way about how accurate your reader’s tweet is.”
During the same interview, the FBI director falsely claimed the FBI has not told social media companies to engage in censorship. Baier quickly called Wray out for the lie, noting that Elon Musk’s ‘Twitter Files’ has revealed that FBI agents have called for numerous accounts to be banned off the platform.
Joining the FBI was another well-known body, the Central Intelligence Agency.
