Over the course of the next several days, the FBI will be bearing the brunt of some very serious and salacious criticism, after the agency laid siege to former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate on an errand for the National Archives.
The move has already sent shockwaves through the American political world, with a vast number of pundits and politicians raging at this blatant weaponization of the Bureau.
Now, in yet another black eye for the already troubled agency, the FBI Director recently cut a congressional hearing short to take a government jet to his vacation spot.
FBI Director Christopher Wray cut his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee short on Thursday, saying he had a plane to catch. Flight logs shows the FBI Gulfstream jet Wray often uses for personal travel flew later that afternoon to the director’s favorite vacation spot in the Adirondacks, according to a new report.
The New York Post reports that Wray left on the FBI’s luxury Gulfstream 550 jet, which was later seen on Flightradar24 making the one hour and 12 minute journey to Saranac Lake, N.Y. The paper reports that the Wray family has a summer home in the area, which has been the director’s favorite summer spot since his childhood.
This looks to be becoming a habit for Wray.
The plane also traveled to Saranac Lake on June 2 and returned to Washington, D.C., on June 5, according to the report.
At a time like this, with the FBI’s reputation rapidly deteriorating, Wray’s actions are unconscionable at best.
