Sen. John Kennedy Reads FBI Agent’s Anti-GOP Tweets Into The Congressional Record

Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy punctuated a Judiciary Committee hearing in which Republicans focused on the FBI’s alleged politicization by reading an agent’s anti-GOP tweets into the congressional record.

Kennedy was one of several Republican senators to suggest that FBI agents are too pro-Democrat to impartially investigate crimes. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas questioned FBI Director Christopher Wray on a leaked document purporting to show that the bureau considers the Betsy Ross and Gadsden flags to potentially be extremist symbols, while Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee suggested that the U.S. has a “two-tiered system of justice” based on political ideology. Wray pushed back on their assessments, saying that the vast majority of FBI agents remain appropriately apolitical.

Kennedy asked Wray about several tweets from Timothy Thibault, former Washington Field Office assistant special agent in charge. Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley has alleged Thibault shut down an investigation into Hunter Biden. Wray declined to directly address Thibault’s tweets, saying that he could not comment on an “on-going personnel matter,” although he did acknowledge that Thibault held the position “until fairly recently.”

Grassley called the FBI’s attention to Thibault’s tweets in a May 31 letter, claiming that they were “likely a violation of his ethical obligations” and “present a grave risk of political infection and bias in his official decision-making process.”

Guy's cornpone style kind of grates on me, but every once in a while he slips the daggers in, in a pretty effective manner.
