Fox News’ Sean Hannity lashed out at FBI Director Christopher Wray Monday night accusing the director of not doing his job.
Hannity started off by noting President Donald Trump does not think Wray is up to snuff.
“The president is also calling out the current FBI director Christopher Wray accusing him of protecting the same gang who tried to overthrow the duly elected president of the United States,” Hannity said.
“You know, we smelly Walmart people, irredeemable deplorables that cling to God and guns and Bibles and religion. That’s us,” the Fox host continued on. “So far I don’t see Director Wray doing a darn thing to clean up the upper echelon of this FBI. That’s his job.”
Then speaking directly to Wray, he said: “For the 99% of FBI special agents that put their lives at risk for us every single day, you owe it to them to get this department, this premier law enforcement agency right with the American people. What has Wray done to hold Comey accountable? Nothing. What about McCabe? What about Baker? What about Strzok? What about Page? Mr. Wray, it’s time for you to do your job.”
Hannity concluded: “The former highest ranking employees in his bureau committed real crimes, and yet no signs that Wray seems to care one bit to bring them to justice, or working to prevent this abuse of power hyperpartisan conduct from ever, ever happening again. But in the coming months, justice will be served. We have promised you that. With or without, well, Director Wray’s help.”
Hannity was referring to and echoing a pair of tweets by Trump on Sunday taking a jab at Wray for “protecting” those Trump sees as trying to overthrow him. Trump’s tweet quoted Judicial Watch Tom Fitton‘s remarks made on Lou Dobbs‘ Fox Business show claiming FBI has “no leadership.”
