Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz questioned FBI Director Christopher Wray about the bureau’s allegedly lenient conduct towards investigations of President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden at a hearing on Wednesday, asking him whether the bureau was protecting the family.

“I’m sitting here with my father. I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge, that you will regret not following my direction. I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father,” Gaetz said, quoting a WhatsApp message sent by Hunter Biden to a Chinese businessman, according to IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, which was released in June. “Sounds like a shakedown, doesn’t it, director?” (RELATED: ‘The Biden’s Are The Best’: House Oversight Releases Stunning Text Hunter Biden Apparently Sent To Chinese Executive)

Wray responded that he was not going to comment on the matter. The FBI and Department of Justice have been investigating Hunter Biden since 2020, and he recently pled guilty to tax and gun charges.

“You seem deeply uncurious about it. Almost suspiciously uncurious. Are you protecting the Bidens?,” Gaetz asked Wray.

“Absolutely not,” Wray responded.

Gaetz then commented on the difference in Wray’s answers.

“You won’t answer the question about whether or not that’s a shakedown, and everybody knows why you won’t answer it, because to the millions of people who will see this, they know it is, and your inability to acknowledge that is deeply revealing about you.”
