FBI Director Wray Hit Hard for Bureau’s Targeting of Catholics and Pro-Lifers
On Wednesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray appeared before the House Judiciary Committee, during which the targeting of Catholics and pro-lifers was addressed, and the exchanges about the matter made for particularly passionate moments.
Early on, Wray brought up the targeting of pro-lifers, but not by his own agency. When giving examples of domestic violent extremism that the FBI is focused on, Wray mentioned, “Of course, recently we’ve had a lot of violent extremism against pro-life facilities, and we’re investigating those.”
These acts of violence came up later, as well, when Wray offered, “I’d be remiss if I didn’t also point out that there has been a pretty significant uptick in violence on the other way, uh, since the Dobbs decision, and, in fact, most of the investigations that we’ve opened since the Dobbs decision, probably about 70 percent of them, have been against pro-life facilities.”
Wray’s flailing on the damning memo isn’t unique to him or Wednesday’s hearing. Attorney General Merrick Garland had also tried to downplay the matter.
The DOJ has been overall cagey and is now facing a lawsuit from CatholicVote and Judicial Watch.
