Did the FBI set up two Members of Congress for political attack under the guise of a defensive briefing? Its possible, and Senators Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley are rightly demanding answers.
On Monday the Republicans sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines asking how the Washington Post came to know about an FBI briefing to both Senators on Aug. 6, 2020. A Post story last week used the info to smear Mr. Johnson and his report on Hunter Bidens foreign business dealings, suggesting that hed ignored FBI warnings and thus may have been manipulated by the Kremlin. The newspaper cited only anonymous current and former U.S. officials.
