FBI briefs lawmakers on Texas, Ohio mass shootings
By John Bowden - 08/07/19 06:11 PM EDT

FBI Director Christopher Wray has briefed members of Congress on the two mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, that occurred over the weekend.

Sources on the Democratic caucus call confirmed that Wray had spoken with House Democrats about the issue earlier Wednesday, a day after the House GOP received a similar briefing from the FBI chief.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and other Senate Republicans were briefed on the shootings Wednesday as well, according to congressional sources, while it was initially unclear whether Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Senate Democrats had received a briefing.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who was on Wednesday's call with Wray, tweeted that he had thanked the agency "for the support they're giving El Paso + Dayton law enforcement" and pledged to continue to monitor developments in the investigations.
