House Speaker Kevin McCarthy Tuesday morning said FBI Director Wray has until today to turn over the Joe Biden bribery scheme document or face contempt charges.
“I have a message for FBI Director Christopher Wray: If he misses today’s deadline to turn over subpoenaed documents to Congress, I am prepared to move contempt charges against him.” McCarthy said on Tuesday morning.
“He can send us the document. We have a right to look at that. Republicans and Democrats alike in that committee and if he does not follow through with the law, we will move contempt charges against Christopher Wray and the FBI. They are not above the law,” he said.
