FBI Director Chris Wray evades the question about the Bureau’s involvement with the January 6th protest.
During a Congressional hearing Tuesday, Wray claimed it is false to assume FBI informants instigated violence during the protest.
However, he did not confirm or deny whether the FBI was involved in any other capacity.
Republican lawmakers also focused on Ray Epps and other suspected FBI informants who called for violence on January 6th.
Republicans are ramping up pressure to expose political bias at the FBI and its alleged role in U.S. politics touting investigations after forming a House majority in January 2023.
