FBI Director Christopher Wray chided the media Tuesday for covering only two of the agency’s ongoing high-profile investigations.
“Although you would never know it from watching the news, we actually have more than two investigations,” Wray said before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Wray was referring to the FBI’s ongoing probes into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election.
Wray was answering a question from Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who asked him to respond to allegations of political bias atop the FBI from President Trump.
"Every day — many, many, many times a day — I'm confronted with unbelievable examples of integrity and professionalism and grit," Wray said. “There's 37,000 people in the FBI who do unbelievable things all around the world."
Trump and some Republican lawmakers have been critical of the FBI, accusing its top leaders of being politically biased and motivated, as well as mishandling the Clinton and Russia investigations.
