Did FBI Director Use FBI Resources for Personal Travel?

During a Senate Judiciary hearing last week, questioning with Director Wray was cut short.

At the time, he stated that he had a plane to catch.

In real-time, it sounded as though it was a matter of urgency.

Well, it wasn’t.

More Abuses

During the hearing, Wray was asked why he could not accommodate the committee for an additional 21 minutes.

He responded, “Senator, I had a flight that I’m supposed to be high-tailing it to outta here, and I had understood that we were going to be done at 1:30, so that’s how we ended up where we are.”

Wray left at 1:30 as he had planned.

It turns out, he was using the FBI Gulfstream to fly to his vacation home, NOT urgent FBI business.

So, a group of GOP House members led by Rep. Stefanik (R-N.Y.) wants answers.

They sent a letter asking for more clarification on the matter.

The letter stated, “We write to conduct oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) use of Government aircraft and compliance with the applicable Federal regulations and requirements.

“We have questions about whether you are properly reimbursing federal taxpayers for your personal travel aboard government aircraft.”

It continued, “You reportedly departed on the FBI’s Gulfstream 550 jet, an agency aircraft initially intended for counterterrorism use, to make the one hour and 12-minute journey to Saranac Lake.

“Further, it has been reported that you made a similar personal trip on a government aircraft on June 2 and June 5, 2022.

“Although certain federal officials are permitted to use government aircraft for personal or political use, these expenses must be reimbursed. According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO), past FBI directors have used government aircraft for personal use as is permissible.

“These former officials reimbursed federal taxpayers at the commercial rate, which can be thousands of dollars less than the actual cost of operating the government aircraft.

“Reimbursement payments for personal travel are made to the FBI Finance Division, which in turn deposits the funds to the Department of the Treasury.”

Now, a private flight such as that would cost you or me about $10,000 if we booked with a jet leasing company.

Wray makes less than $200,000/year, so you have to wonder how someone like that can afford to pay for a $10,000 flight.

Well, that would be because Wray has a net worth of about $23 million.

Wray is just another elitist thumbing his nose at the little people.

But, let me ask one more question… if this administration is so concerned about climate change, why is it permitting its director to fly its Gulfstream for personal use in the first place?

Rules for thee…

    1. We need real PATRIOT AMERICANS TO BE WORKING IN THE FBI. NOT ALL THESE EVIL RADICAL MARXIST, THAT ARE THE STORM TROOPERS FOR THE PROGRESSIVE RADICAL, CRIMINAL CORRUPT, ANTI-AMERICAN, RACIST, MARXIST DEMORAT PARTY.
      THEY MUST ALL BE IMPEACHED AND FIRED, BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO LOYALTY, RESPECT FOR AMERICA OR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. AMERICANS HAVE LOST TRUST IN THE FBI AND OTHER CORRUPT DEPARTMENTS.

      GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

      1. Totally agree with you, us poor citizen of this country deserve honest FBI agents, this is why we don’t believe any thing they do or say. Now President Trump is getting raised in his home!!! Don’t think they want do it to us.

        1. Like I’ve said before, in my 25+ years as a police officer and detective, the FBI is a legend in it’s own mind. There were only 2 agents that I wanted to be anywhere around, or have them anywhere around me. I know I am not alone.

      2. The FBI and CIA have gotten MORE corrupt every year SINCE Clinton was in office. And it is the DEMOCRATS who have let them get away with it for years, more quietly when a Republican was President, but totally out of control when a Democrat was President and NOW under OBAMA and NOW BIDEN they are FIXING THE GAME AGAINST every Replublican in DC. We have to FIRE “all” of them at the TOP and VET all the rest! PRISON FOR MANY!

        1. Time for a Convention of States as given in article 5 of our Constitution. The elites are completely out of control! Term limits, age limits and no playing the markets!

        2. THIS IS THE PROBLEM, THE LIAR TERRORIST DEMOCRATS like OBAMA,HILARY C.,PELOSI,KAMALA H AND THE IDIOT BIDEN HO ALL HIS LIFE WAS A,THIEF ,LIAR AND NOW TO.ONLY DIFFERENCE THE LIAR DEMOCRATS PUT THE IDIOT TO BE A PRESIDENT AND WHERE THEY PUT TO SEAT DOWN AND SHUT HE”S MOUTH AND THIS CRIMINALS DOING THE DIRTY WORK UNDER THE IDIOT NAME !!!!!! THIS IS THE DEMOCRATIC JUSTIS !!!!! LIE,LIE AND MORE LIE !!! STEAL FROM THE NATION EVERYTHING !!!!!

  1. The Russians did this also, while Russians were stacked with 10 families stuck in one apartment. Probably still crammed today with the same families!

  2. Where did FBI Director Christopher Wray get/earn that $23 million in net worth he’s supposed to have? Did he pay taxes on it? What’s good for the goose…..

    While we’re at it, has an audit been conducted on Hunter Biden and, since President Biden was most likely the BIG Guy who allegedly got half, did President Biden pay taxes on the half he received from his ner do well son?

    1. EXACTLY! And will he be prosecuted for this last theft of services? You or I would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and more than likely even more!

  3. Wray and Garland are both partisan and treasonous swamp creatures.
    Neither of them has done anything at all to earn the trust of American citizens.

  4. THEY WOULD HAVE BILLED US AND THEN FROZEN OUR ACCOUNTS … The fbi can “pleasure trip” where ever when ever free .. let one of us try it ,,,

  5. To bad he wasn’t targeted by terrorists and shot down. That would be a terrible loss for the corrupt agencies and a tremendous victory for the American people.

  6. How nice that these people are all enjoying the high life while us normal everyday Americans are having to watch every penny because of the brainless twits who sit at the helm. Let’s face it, we are being unjustly persecuted by this administration but they are all allowed to do as they please with no consequences. No wonder they are panting at the bit to “Get Trump”. It gets worse by the day and just waiting for their house of cards to come tumbling down.

  7. So, a vacation is more important than answering our Representatives? Was the vacation scheduled before or AFTER to report to Representatives to answer these questions? There is no concern from him. He’s beyond their level and unanswering to them. He has to talk with his handlers in private to get his instructions.

  8. OK, look, this is not unusual for people of power to take advantage of the perks available to them. Because they serve without regard to their own gains. That is the idea that our predecessors (both voters and politicians) had. Now that is an idea of yesteryear. These men (and women) of power today are scoundrels. Not honorable people. Should they be scrutinized for their taking advantage of their position? I say Yes. Should they be attacked by law enforcement, I say Yes. If we could quit trying to tear these folks down with petty BS accusations and take a hard look at what they are actually doing (i.e. Hunter, Pelosi, Cheney, the Clinton crowd, Obama, etc….) and stop looking at the monkey that they keep throwing up on the screen; perhaps then we can move forward. Otherwise, we are doomed to the mess they have created for us and have no intention of cleaning up themselves. And guess what, they will all be living high on the hog, somewhere they cannot be touched by the time we figure this out. Sound familiar?

  9. The dem criminals NEED to be stopped…..They are using ALL Americans money, dems republicans, independants for themselves…..while ALL Americans suffer with ALL the high costs of living.

  10. Trump was right the corruption is simply unbelievable, they are all “milking the cow” and getting rich at the taxpayers expense. They will all burn in Hell!

  11. Please remember that President Trump donated his salary to various legitimate organizations. Refreshing, isn’t it? He also left office with his personal wealth lower than when he began his term. Remember, too, that the “Big Guy” never spoke with Biden about his nefarious adventures. What were the enemies of our country given in return for Hunter’s unearned $$$$$? Here is what President Trump’s first day in office should include:
    1. All ex-military service people were fired for not taking the JAB should be reinstated with a one step up in pay grade. At the same time the officers who refused their exemption requests should be terminated with a dishonorable discharge.
    2. All the people thrown in prison because of Jan 6 should be released immediately, with monetary compensation for the injustice inflicted upon them. After all, we need some place to house all the people (in Congress, the white House, FBI, IRS DOJ Pentagon) intent on persecuting them without charges, or their right to a speedy trial. I think there is an important legal Document that promises that to the American people.
    3. CLOSE the border tighter than a drum and round up illegals and send them home.
    4. When Social Security goes broke (because Congress for years has been its diverting funds to their pet projects,
    the outrageous pensions they are getting should be stopped immediately. Buy, wouldn’t that be a switcheroo. Help the everyday American at the expense of the political elite.
    5. Reinstate police departments wherever they have been eliminated. Have an administrative review of the judiciary, particularly those who are at the beck and call of the extremist left with phony warrants,.
    6. Reestablish our educational system by eliminating the woke agenda and replacing it real academic training.

    Pls add to this list, we have to keep building the agenda.
