Last week, Rep. Dan Bishop posted a Twitter thread about the many questions he had for the FBI about the plot to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. “Every step of the way, the Whitmer plot was directed and encouraged by government agents,” Bishop tweeted. “It required approval at the highest levels of the DOJ. What we still don’t know — Who approved this op? Who oversaw it?”
As Twitchy reported earlier, Sen. Ted Cruz gave FBI Director Christopher Wray a hard time Thursday at a hearing, asking him to explain why the Justice Department thinks Gadsden and Betsy Ross flags are “indicative of militia violent extremism.”
Cruz also asked Wray about the Whitmer kidnapping plot and learned that the FBI special agent who oversaw the office overseeing the Whitmer kidnapping plot is not overseeing the Washington, D.C. office that is overseeing the January 6 investigation.

Ted Cruz, FBI Director Chris Wray admits the FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Detroit Field Office who oversaw the Whitmer kidnapping entrapment and "absolute debacle" is now in charge of the Washington, D.C. Office, overseeing the J6 investigation. pic.twitter.com/85Y7QJXeyy

I think they call that “failing up”.

When I was a kid I never understood why so many movies made fun of the FBI. I am an adult and I totally get it. Embarrassing

I have to give it to Cruz, this was some useful questioning.

It's just so disgraceful what the FBI has become.

And they wonder why the public has lost its trust in institutions like the FBI.
