During a Congressional hearing Tuesday, Wray claimed it is false to assume that FBI informants instigated violence during the protest.

However, he did not confirm or deny whether the FBI was involved in any other capacity.

Republican lawmakers focus of Ray Epps and other suspected FBI informants who called for violence on January 6th.

Republicans are ramping up pressure to expose political bias at the FBI and its alleged role in U.S. politics touting investigations after forming a House majority in January 2023.
