FBI Director Denounces Trump Supporters for Using Violent Rhetoric Following Mar-a-Lago Search https://t.co/rrImxAMh9o

The director of the FBI had strong words Wednesday for supporters of former President Donald Trump who have been using violent rhetoric in the wake of his agency’s search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.
Christopher Wray, who was appointed as the agency’s director in 2017 by Trump, called threats circulating online against federal agents and the Justice Department “deplorable and dangerous.”
“I’m always concerned about threats to law enforcement,” Wray said. “Violence against law enforcement is not the answer, no matter who you’re upset with.”
Wray made the remarks following a news conference during a long-planned visit to the agency’s field office in Omaha, Nebraska, where he discussed the FBI’s focus on cybersecurity. He declined to answer questions about the hours-long search Monday by FBI agents of Trump’s Palm Beach, Florida resort.
Because you know, the people who are pissed off about the FBI’s actions are the real problem.
These people we keep deliberately kicking in the face are threatening me. https://t.co/FLd3ElTnjq

The left used violent rhetoric and threats of violence against judges for weeks. The FBI didn’t denounce a single instance. https://t.co/eojTxK5aum

All day, every day.
I haven't used any violent rhetoric but I'll go ahead and denounce the FBI director.
He gives me "Director of the Gestapo" vibes

Did he say the same about the violent rhetoric from people protesting in front of the homes of SCOTUS Justices and vandalizing crisis pregnancy centers?
