Trump Slams ‘current’ FBI Director Wray Response Over Inspector General Report

President Trump slammed FBI Director Christopher Wray’s comments following the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on how the FBI handled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant applications to initiate surveillance on the Trump campaign.

The inspector general’s report, over 400 pages long, concluded there was “no evidence of political bias or intentional misconduct.”

However, the inspector general’s report did find there were “17 serious omissions, inaccuracies and failures.”

Wray called for the need for “remedial action.”

The New York Post reports:

“Accordingly, the FBI accepts the Report’s findings and embraces the need for thoughtful, meaningful remedial action,” Wray said. “Because our credibility and brand are central to fulfilling our mission, we are also making improvements beyond those recommended by the OIG.”

Wray discussed the inspector general’s report on ABC News where he emphasized there was no political bias found in the report.

President Trump hit back at Wray calling him the “current Director of the FBI,” and referenced the seriousness of FBI misconduct.

President Trump also expressed his disappointment in what the country has gone through under the FBI, calling it “a disgrace” and “embarrassment.”

President Trump was right to call out Wray over downplaying the significance of the inspector general report.
