FBI Director Christopher Wray said during a recent interview that he has serious concerns over how the FBI and FBI director James Comey handled the Michael Flynn investigation.
According to The Daily Caller:
FBI Director Christopher Wray said in an interview aired Wednesday that he has “serious concerns” about how the bureau handled the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
“I will say….the Flynn investigation, which took place before I started, and by the time I started was in the hands of the special counsel’s office, is something that has in my view raised serious concerns and questions,” Wray told Fox News anchor Bret Baier.
Wray noted that he has appointed the FBI’s inspection division to “take a look at whether or not the FBI’s policies and procedures need to be changed and if there are any current employees left to may bear any responsibility for misconduct.”
Wray’s remarks are his most pointed criticism to date of the FBI’s investigation of Flynn, which started when Jim Comey served as director.
The interview came before the judge in the case was directed by the appeals court to comply with the Justice Department’s request to drops the charges against Flynn.
