Joe Biden’s FBI Director Christopher Wray ripped people opposed to the Bureau’s overstepping as “deplorable.”
Breitbart News reports:
On Wednesday, Wray called such threats, which have appeared on social media, “deplorable and dangerous.” (The apparent irony of the use of the word “deplorable” — once used by Hillary Clinton to mock Trump supporters — was evident lost.)
However, when faced with criticism from Republicans that the FBI was not doing enough to protect conservative Supreme Court justices from protests outside their private homes — which are illegal under federal law — Wray shrugged at the risk.
The protests began appearing earlier this year, when a draft decision overturning Roe v. Wade was leaked. The protests are aimed at conservative justices who joined the majority opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case.
Earlier this month, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) questioned Wray at the Senate Judiciary Committee about the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI’s refusal to enforce the relevant statute, Title 18 of the U.S. Code, section 1507.
Previously, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ripped Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables,” which was conversely thrown in Clinton’s face when Republicans owned the term.
