FBI director defends agency amid Trump criticism — The Latest

Trump on Sunday tweeted that the FBI's reputation was "in tatters" and the "worst in history", seizing on reports about possible bias from a former top bureau official.

"Grossly negligent" is a phrase that would have allowed officials to charge Clinton.

Mueller's team might have more in store for Manafort and his former business partner, Rick Gates. Yates was also fired for disagreeing with the president over policy and publicly voicing her dissent. This follows fresh reports of strong links between members of the investigating team and Hillary Clinton and her aides.

Republican congressman Bob Goodlatte (GUD'-lat) of Virginia chairs the House Judiciary Committee. He was present during the FBI's 2016 interview with Clinton at the end of the email investigation. That is according to Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, who cited the account of an anonymous whistleblower. "Now do we make mistakes?"

"Gross negligence is the language in the statute I believe", Wray said.

Wray's start as FBI head would have been difficult enough, even without the intense scrutiny of the Russia investigation. "I sympathize with them".

Yes, the FBI probe of whether then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had broken the law by using a private email server while secretary of state.

The simultaneous political and media campaign against Mueller, meanwhile, is raising concerns that the President has embarked on an attempt to solidify his political base and frame a political rationale for supporters in Congress to oppose any eventual move toward impeachment. And Trump's firing of Comey while he led the Russia probe shows the risk of antagonizing the president.

One must ask why it is assumed that the logical candidate to replace a conservative office holder, must be a Democrat?

As to the reputation of the FBI, it's only as good as its last picture. "We haven't heard from you". Republicans will follow their natural inclination to line up behind their party, insulating Trump and his administration from any kind of accountability. "Is the FBI's reputation in tatters?" "But that didn't occur, and that's troubling".

"There is no shortage of opinions out there", Wray said.

Veteran FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok has been pulled out of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of alleged Russian meddling in our election, it was revealed during the weekend.

LUCAS: About halfway into the five-hour hearing, Wray took a step back and appeared almost philosophical.

Currently, "vicious attacks" are aimed at the "integrity of federal law enforcement officials", Tapper added. He also raised questions about the number of Democratic-campaign donors serving as prosecutors on Mueller's team.

Former US attorney Preet Bharara maintained this week that it is already clearly established that the President "does not shrink from exercising his full constitutional authority".

We had an FBI director write two politically volatile letters weeks before an election. But FBI directors traditionally have been low-key and stoic - with Wray's predecessor, James Comey, a notable exception. Their message is the same one they've used for decades and it still rings hollow! We've had an FBI director fired.

"We find ourselves under the microscope each and every day - and rightfully so". Republicans in Congress won't feel pressure to follow up with further investigations, let alone impeach the president.

The results of that review are expected next year.

"When those findings come to me, I will take appropriate action if necessary", Wray said.
