Marjorie Taylor Greene introduces articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray
Rep. Greene filed articles of impeachment against U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland after the FBI raided former President Trump's home in August 2022
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., on Tuesday introduced articles of impeachment against FBI Director Christopher Wray.
In the articles of impeachment, obtained by Fox News Digital, Greene claims that, under Wray’s watch, he has facilitated “the development of a Federal police force to intimidate, harass, and entrap American citizens that are deemed enemies of the Biden regime.”
Greene highlighted instances of what she regarded as abuse of the bureau’s authority. These instances included, among others, the FBI’s “unprecedented raid” on the home of former President Donald Trump on Aug. 8, 2022, and the bureau’s creation of a “terrorist threat tag” following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade earlier that summer.
After the FBI raid, Greene filed articles of impeachment against U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland. Green also said Tuesday she would move to introduce articles of impeachment against Matthew Graves, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.
“Both FBI Director Christopher Wray and U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves are dedicated public servants who have committed their careers to keeping our country,” a DOJ spokesperson told Fox News Digital in a statement.
“Every day, Director Wray and U.S. Attorney Graves lead teams of career officials, many of whom put themselves in harm’s way, to counter threats to our national security and fight violent crime. Their work and their service are critical to the safety and security of our country and our nation’s capital.”
President Trump nominated Wray in 2017 after firing then-director James Comey. Wray was sworn into the FBI on Aug. 2, 2017.
Greene’s introduction of articles of impeachment comes after Special Counsel John Durham released his final report on the FBI’s investigation of alleged collusion between Russia and Donald Trump in the 2016 campaign.
Durham’s report concluded that the FBI and DOJ jumped too hastily into the investigation and relied too much on raw and unconfirmed intelligence.
The FBI declined to comment.
