FBI Agents Issue Unusual Public Statement Backing FBI Director As Trump Vows To Release Classified Memo




The FBI Agents Association has taken the unusual step of issuing a public statement defending FBI Director Christopher Wray ahead of the expected release of an explosive congressional memo that allegedly accuses the agency of anti-Trump bias among its top officials.

“The FBI Agents Association appreciates FBI Director Chris Wray standing shoulder to shoulder with the men and women of the FBI as we work together to protect our country from criminal and national security threats,” the FBIAA said in a Thursday statement. “As Director Wray noted, FBI Special Agents have remained steadfast in their dedication to professionalism, and we remain focused on our important work to protect the country from terrorists and criminals — both domestic and international.”



Trump is expected to allow the release of a memo crafted by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, ignoring a rare public statement by the FBI this week saying it had “grave concerns” about the memo, adding that some information in the document was inaccurate.

Wray, who was appointed by Trump to the position last year after he fired former FBI Director James Comey, reportedly expressed those concerns directly to the White House.
