FBI Director Christopher Wray on Thursday rejected President Trump’s assessment that the FBI is “in tatters,” and defended the agency he was confirmed to lead in August.
“There’s no finer institution than the FBI and no finer people than those who work there and are its beating heart,” Wray said during an oversight hearing before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
The FBI is composed of “hard-charging, high integrity people,” Wray said. “The FBI that I see is appreciated and respected.”
On Sunday, Trump tweeted out that the agency’s standing is the “worst in history” and that its reputation is in “tatters.” He sent that tweet after news broke that one FBI official, Peter Strzok, was removed from the special counsel’s team looking at Russia’s influence in the election after it became clear he favored Hillary Clinton.
