House GOP leadership is now convinced FBI Director Christopher Wray is not cooperating with Bill Barr and John Durham’s investigation into the origins of Spygate.
According to investigative reporter Paul Sperry, GOP Reps believe Wray is part of the cover-up of Spygate after burying documents and refusing to make people available for interviews.

Swamp creature FBI Director Wray and FBI brass have yet to condemn the Obama administration spying on the opposition party during the 2016 election.
Last month Wray told the Senate Appropriations Committee that Bill Barr’s use of the word “spying” to describe the spying on the Trump campaign and administration was “not the term I would use.
Wray also told the committee he has no evidence the Obama administration was spying on Trump.
President Trump has had enough.
I should fucking well hope so. I should also hope he’s finally learned the long-overdue lesson about what appointing Obama stay-behinds and Deep State crawly things to high administration positions will get him. He’s done way too much of that already, and it’s never failed yet to bite him in the ass. As Bill puts it:
And right here is a perfect example of Trump’s oft-repeated error of shooting himself in the foot when it comes to his appointments.
FBI Director Wray was appointed to the position by President Donald Trump.
Worse, he did so after his terrible experience with FBI Director Comey, which should have led him to take extra care in choosing with whom to replace Comey. PB had it nailed early on. I didn’t post much on it, because I mistakenly assumed Trump knew what he was doing with the appointment. But he didn’t. And so here we are.
Now, I know the Local Fan Club will tell me how Donald had no choice, or there was no way to know, or any of a host of excuses for this, but the fact remains: Wray had a track record, it was indicative, and it was ignored. And so now we have Trump in the weird position of having appointed Wray to a ten year position which was confirmed by Congress, being faced with the prospect of firing his own guy (who will be cheered on as a hero of the Resistance by all the usual suspects, and who will claim that any such firing would be obstruction of justice worthy of immediate impeachment).
Now, I don’t necessarily fear impeachment, but I think it is possible to be a bit too blithe about it. Once something like that is set in train, nobody really knows how it might turn out, and I’m not thrilled about taking too many chances with it.
I do understand that the pool of actual conservatives able and willing to run a large department like the FBI is a bit thin on the ground, but there are hazards to going back to the same corrupt Deep State well over and over again.
There certainly are. You made much of your intention to “hire the best people” during your campaign, Mr President. These Swamp shitweasels are NOT them. And, with all due respect, allowing them to continue festering in place is NOT what the American people hired you to do.
