Steve Bannon: FBI Director Wray “Will Be Prosecuted”
Steve Bannon didn’t hold back.
During an episode of the War Room Steve Bannon blasted FBI Director Christoper Wray predicting Wray will be “will be prosecuted and imprisoned.”
Right-wing strategist and podcaster Steve Bannon blasted Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Christopher Wray, who was nominated by former President Donald Trump, contending that he would face prosecution and prison.
Bannon, however, expressed outrage at the FBI director in an early Saturday morning Gettr post. “The FBI is out of control—a danger to a free citizenry—Chris Wray is just one of many criminals in leadership that will be prosecuted and imprisoned,” the staunch Trump ally wrote.
Bannon was discussing the finding that the FBI has been snooping on Americans at a record pace.
The FBI may have conducted millions of warrantless searches of Americans’ electronic data last year, U.S. intelligence officials acknowledged in a report released Friday.
The report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence revealed that the bureau conducted up to 3.4 million searches of U.S. data drawn from the National Security Agency. Senior Biden administration officials told The Wall Street Journal the number is likely inflated due to the way individual queries are tabulated, but the number was still nearly triple that of the prior year.
