FBI Director Christopher Wray has lost the trust of FBI agents after an official accused of protecting the laptop of Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son, dropped out of a criminal investigation.
Curt Suzdak, a lawyer representing the FBI whistleblower, told the Washington Times that “a number of FBI officials believe their manager has lost control of the running of the FBI and that he should leave his post.”
He added: “FBI agents have assured me that they have lost faith in their manager … and they tell me that everything Christopher Ray does for him is saying that we need more training and we need to do something about it.” otherwise we won’t tolerate it.”
His comments follow the resignation of Timothy Thiebaud, the top agent in charge of the FBI’s Washington field office, amid allegations that he blocked an investigation into President Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Thibaut’s lawyer said his resignation had nothing to do with the allegations and that he did not seek to close the laptop investigation.
However, Syuzdak stressed that “Thiebaud left the office in March after 25 years in office because the administration had failed to hold executives to account, which is due to the politicization that exists at the highest levels of the agency”, noting that “Whistleblowers claimed that Ray , who was appointed by former President Donald Trump in 2017, took no action when he faced problems in the office that ranged from forcing clients to sign false statements to allegations of sexual harassment.
