There are a lot of questions many of us would like answered about the events of January 6, 2021. Questions like, “Who is and what happened to Ray Epps?” But that’s for a different time and a different article.
During testimony in front of the House Homeland Security Committee on Tuesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray was questioned by Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.) about his agency’s possible involvement in the events of January 6.
“Director Wray, did the FBI have confidential human sources embedded within the January 6 protesters on January 6, 2021?” Higgins asked Wray.
Wray evaded actually answering the question under the camouflage of protecting an ongoing investigation.
“Congressman, as I’m sure you can appreciate, I have to be very careful about what I can say about when we do and do not and where we have and have not used confidential human sources. But, to the extent that there’s a suggestion — for example — that the FBI’s confidential human sources or FBI employees in some way instigated or orchestrated January 6th, that’s categorically false.”
Higgins didn’t let up, however, and put the pressure on Wray to answer a more direct question, to which he evaded answering again.
“Did you have confidential human sources dressed as Trump supporters inside the Capitol on January 6th, prior to the doors being opened?” Higgins followed up.
“Again, I have to be very careful…” Wray began to respond before being interrupted by Higgins with a very good counter.
“It should be a no!” Higgins interjected. Can you not tell the American people, ‘No, we did not have confidential human sources dressed as Trump supporters positioned inside the Capitol on January 6th?’”
Wray attempted to play defense, but that dog left the yard already.
“You should not read anything into my decision not to share information on confidential human sources,” Wray explained.
No, not at all. Don’t read anything into the fact that the director of the FBI won’t answer if they played a part in orchestrating January 6th.
