FBI Director Wray to be Held in Contempt of Congress For Withholding Subpoenaed Document

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

FBI Director Christopher Wray has missed the deadline of May 30 to provide a subpoenaed unclassified document that allegedly contains details of a criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden and a foreign national. House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) will now take steps to hold Wray in contempt of Congress.  Comer said, “Today, the FBI informed the committee that it will not provide the unclassified documents subpoenaed by the committee. The FBI’s decision to stiff-arm Congress and hide this information from the American people is obstructionist and unacceptable.”  Comer has scheduled a call to Wray on May 31 to discuss his response.  House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said earlier on May 30 that the House will hold Wray in contempt of Congress if the document is not turned over.
