Under fire from Republican senators, FBI Director Christopher Wray admitted allegations that FBI agents had protected his first child, Hunter Biden, from criminal investigations, were “deeply disturbing” before retiring from the question-and-answer session finished time saying he had a flight to catch. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, argued in vain that Wray delayed the departure of that government plane after pointing out that it was not flying a commercial.
