Wray's grilling by the Senate Judiciary Committee was deeply frustrating. His often obtuse answers confirmed GOP concerns about a hyper-politicized agency that lacks transparency. He was vague about Afghanistan, border security, pro-abortion domestic terrorism, nebulous definitions of "extremism" and "domestic terrorism," and allegations against Hunter Biden. Not a good performance.
Despite the GOP's pomp and circumstance on "red herrings" such as Hunter Biden, what should concern us all is that the FBI has its hands full with investigations into domestic terrorism, including those related to the abortion issue, and threats inspired by Trump supporters against election workers. What was clear was that Director Wray has his work cut out for him across a portfolio of pressing and dangerous issues.
There is a 49% chance that Hunter Biden will be indicted before November 5, 2024, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
