Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) warned that FBI Director Christopher Wray's job could be eliminated by House Republicans if the agency doesn't cooperate with a Congressional probe, Breitbart reported. Wray has been holding back incriminating evidence against President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
"The FBI’s playing games," Luna told Fox News's Jesse Watters. "As you know, even if we do a contempt of Congress, it’s likely that the DOJ would not actually hold the FBI director accountable," she added.
"But what we can do as Congress is officially defund the director’s position, and that’s something we’re also looking at doing via the Holman Rule," Luna added. Watters asked for clarification on whether that means Wray will not get paid.
"That means we’ve effectively eliminated his salary and, thus, his position, yes," Luna told Watters. The Holman Rule allows Congress to lower the salary, cut an employee, or eliminate a position altogether through amendments to appropriations bills.
There's no word on how many House Republicans would be on board, but it is a solution to Wray's lack of cooperation. Last month, Wray was cagey about the existence of proof that Joe Biden was involved in a blackmail scheme when he was vice president.
After threatening Wray with contempt of Congress charges, the FBI finally allowed the members of the House Oversight Committee to view the document in question. Coincidentally, Biden's Department of Justice indicted former President Donald Trump the very day lawmakers visited the Capitol building's Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility to view the document.
The document stated how an FBI informant reported that Joe Biden received a $5 million bribe from a Ukrainian oligarch, the New York Post reported. He was the vice president at the time, and documents revealed Hunter Biden referred to a bribe for himself and the "big guy."
A reporter asked Joe Biden specifically about that moniker showing up repeatedly, including on emails from his son's abandoned laptop. "Why do you ask such a dumb question?" the president barked.
There's reason for Joe Biden to be so defensive about the situation. The documents that Wray attempted to keep from the prying eyes of Congress came from a "highly credible" FBI confidential informant.
Other revelations included the possible existence of up to 17 recordings of conversations between the businessman being targeted and the Bidens. He claims to have kept them as an "insurance policy" should things go sideways.
Besides the millions of dollars allegedly exchanging hands, the influence-peddling paid off for the younger Biden through a board position with the Ukrainian company. Hunter Biden raked in a salary of $1 million annually even though he had no experience in the energy sector.
Wray's actions certainly warrant Luna's proposal, and it's clear she means business. Recently, she pushed a resolution against Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) but was thwarted when 20 GOP lawmakers sided with Democrats to shelve the proposal.
"See you next week Adam," Luna quipped on Twitter Wednesday after pledging to rework the resolution. She also reportedly said that directly to Schiff while passing him after the vote.
At the very least, Wray deserves additional scrutiny based on his apparent attempt to cover for the Bidens. The best thing Luna could do for the nation is to fire Wray, but it's an unfortunate possibility that his successor could also be a partisan hack.
