Director Wray, thanks for being here.

FBI Director Christopher Wray
Thank you.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
There are a lot of topics we want to talk about and cover here with you. I want to talk about first foreign influence in this country. The Justice Department recently indicted a professor at Harvard for lying about his relationship with the Chinese government. For people who don’t know about China and what they’re trying to do in the US, how much is China doing? How much is China spying in the US?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
Bret, there’s no country that presents a broader, more comprehensive threat to America’s innovation to our economic security and to our democratic ideas than China does. Just to give you some context for that, just as we’re sitting here, having this conversation, the FBI has over 2000 active investigations that trace back to the government of China.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
2000?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
Right. And that’s put a little more context on that. That’s about a 1300 percent increase in terms of economic espionage investigations with the Chinese Nexus from about a decade ago.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
Or how much is that economic espionage -how much is it government espionage?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
Well, that’s the thing that a lot of people don’t really understand about the Chinese government. This is not about the Chinese people or Chinese Americans. This is about the Chinese government and the Chinese Communist Party, and they are pursuing a campaign of intellectual property theft, economic espionage, cyber intrusions that target businesses big and small all across the country, and our academic research institutions, and they do it not just through traditional government officials, which they certainly do, but also through what we sometimes call non traditional collectors, which can be businessmen, high level scientists, high level academics, people like that, all of whom are in different ways incentivized To steal American innovation and confidential information and take it back to China.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
So in the 30s and 40s, the Soviet Union, for example, have more than 100 spies in the State Department. Is espionage a real problem in the US? What is China doing on that front?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
Well, traditional espionage is certainly, you know, the old sort of “spy versus spy” things still very much a phenomenon in today’s world. But we’re much more focused in many ways on the economic espionage which targets American businesses and hurts American jobs, American consumers. And it’s everything from fortune 100 companies to startups, it’s agriculture, it’s high tech, it’s aviation, it’s healthcare, as I said before, it’s our academic research institutions-..

Bret Baier (Fox News)
Are they taking an interest in elections?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
They certainly have a an interest in influencing our our political thought, our policies to try to shift them in a more friendly pro China pro Chinese Communist Party direction. And so sometimes that gets wrapped up in election issues.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
Is the FBI in charge of the investigation of the origins of the Coronavirus?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
We certainly have a role in looking into the origins of the Coronavirus-

Bret Baier (Fox News)
Any bit closer?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
I would say at this point, there’s nothing to add to what the intelligence community has already said publicly on that. There’s still insufficient information to really know exactly how the virus emanated from Wuhan.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
When you say that China’s active. When there was a crisis, for example, the protests after the George Floyd killing, are using foreign intervention to kind of stir up chaos inside the US?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
We have certainly seen in the past a variety of foreign adversaries looking to amplify controversy in this country and they use state media. They use social media, some that’s through propaganda. Some of that’s through disinformation. Some of that’s through just fake information. And we are looking carefully at the prospect of foreign influence, or foreign interference in all of the protests activity that’s occurred over the last few weeks.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
The President has talked to -the administration has talked about “Antifa”, yet what the Justice Department and you all have moved on is this “Boogaloo group”, that is kind of a right wing group, that is trying to stir up chaos to make it “look” like it’s left wing. I talked to the attorney general about this last time we sat down. -Are there any Antifa investigations ongoing?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
The violence that occurred during the protests of the past few weeks, is driven by a variety of different motivations and ideologies. It’s not all the work of any single ideology, movement or group. We certainly have a number of active ongoing investigations into violent anarchist extremists, some of whom self identify or otherwise linked to the Antifa movement. But I think it’s a mistake to try to put a lot of this into sort of “neat ideological buckets”, were really about the violence, not the ideology.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
So the letter you sent to your FBI family after the George Floyd killings and what that means internally, what have you been doing to change the dynamic in the wake of all this?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
So I understand completely that there are a lot of people out there in this country who are hurting, who are angry, who are upset over instances of racism, or where the justice system has failed people of color in particular. I would also say, though, that the law enforcement family is also hurting, and there are lots and lots and lots of police officers out there who are putting their lives on the line every day. Who are you know, unfairly tarred by the misconduct of a few. So what we really need is for people to come together to listen to each other and to work together to try to figure out a better way forward.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
When I talked to the Attorney General, he suggested that there’s going to be some kind of federal involvement in setting clear standards for police unions across the country.

(Attorney General)
[“I think there’s a general agreement among police agencies that we need clearer standards, we have to make sure those standards are trained to and we have to make sure that there are systems in place that hold officers accountable.”]

Bret Baier (Fox News)
-So is that a federal effort? Does that suddenly come a federal training effort?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
I think we’re going to need a strong federal participation in this effort in helping to set standards.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
-So what does that look like?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
Well, the FBI is role is a few different things. First, in terms of accountability, we pursue and have for some time, civil rights color of law investigations where excessive force violates federal law, but we also participate in doing training and setting best practices for police departments state and local around the country.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
You know, the President said about these monuments coming down-

(President Trump)
“We are looking at long term jail sentences for these vandals indeed Ludlum is Andy’s anarchism and agitators, they’re bad people. They don’t love our guts. And they’re not taking down our bodies.”

Bret Baier (Fox News)
-Is that gonna happen?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
Look equal justice is essential. But violence and destruction of federal property is not the way to get there. And if there are appropriate bases for federal investigations will pursue.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
What is the biggest threat You see? For a long time, that was radical Islamic terrorism. What’s the biggest threat that you see as FBI director?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
The biggest terrorist threat here in the us here in the homeland is what we would call sort of “homegrown violent extremists” -and these are people who are lone actors typically motivated by a variety of different ideologies, some Jihadists, some others, who go very quickly from radicalization, to attack, typically radicalized online, and they’re going after soft targets, you know, schools, shopping malls, easy to hit targets and using easily accessible weapons and those kinds of terrorists are much harder to detect and prevent in many ways. So that’s what we think of is the greatest threat to here in the homeland.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
What’s the morale here at the FBI?

Advertisement. Scroll to continue reading.

FBI Director Christopher Wray
I actually think the morale in the FBI is quite good. Our attrition rate is down to 0.4%. And there not a lot of organizations out there public or private, that can say that

Bret Baier (Fox News)
Now the investigation into the Pfizer abuse there was false information provided to the Pfizer quarter according to the big bogus information, about this, from a rival presidential campaign, the steel dossier, one of your own top attorneys fabricated evidence to suggest Carter page was a “secret Russian asset”, when in fact he had helped us build a case against Russian operatives. There are a lot of people who look at what has come out and understanding the Derm report is yet to come likely this summer. They wonder Will anybody be held accountable? Will anything come of this?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
Well, first, let me say this, I think that I.G. report describes conduct that I consider unacceptable, and unrepresentative of who the FBI is as an institution and cannot be allowed to happen again. And I’ve made that very clear to our workforce. Now, I put in place an entirely new leadership team. And even though I wasn’t director at the time of of all of this, my team and I are are fiercely committed to making sure we fix the problems of the past. We’ve accepted ever finding and recommendation in that I.G. report but then going above and beyond, put in place over 40 corrective measures that enhance our training, strengthen our processes build in more oversight and accountability. And~ -and, have referred employees current employees for discipline. Now, having said that, the most senior people involved in this activity in this report, are long gone, either terminated some during my tenure, or retired or resigned.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
Has the FBI disclosed every piece of evidence related to the Durham inquiry?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
We’ve cooperated fully with the Durham investigation. In fact, we even have a lot of people don’t know this. We actually have agents assigned to working on the Durham investigation. So we’re very much lashed up with that.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
Congress says they’d have a tough time getting documents and things from you, Senator Grassley, in particular about the Michael Flynn calls. Were you responsible for holding back from from Congress some of that stuff?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
I think we’ve tried very, very hard to be transparent and cooperative with all the relevant congressional committees. We’ve produced all sorts of information and tried to really lean forward.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
Why did it take so long for the material to come out for Horowitz, you know, publicly like with the Pfizer, the Flynn, 302s, the reports? It seemed like it took forever. Why was that? I mean, if it wasn’t court orders, and the IG’s efforts, we wouldn’t know anything about any of this.

FBI Director Christopher Wray
For the IG’s efforts. We’ve bent over backwards to be transparent and cooperative with the IG and he actually in his report talks about how fully cooperative and transparent we were with him.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
The Flynn defense attorneys, Michael Flan, former and as a national security advisor, said they were not provided the exculpatory evidence that eventually came out during In the trial they weren’t provided. Who held that back?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
Decisions about producing documents in a criminal prosecution are typically handled by the prosecutors. I will say that of course the Flynn investigation – which took place before I started and then by the time I started was in the hands of the special counsels office- is something that has, in my view raised, serious concerns and questions, which is why I ordered an after action review by our inspection division to take a look at whether or not the FBI’s policies and procedures need to be changed and if there are any current employees left, who may bear any responsibility for his conduct.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
[This interview happened before the appeals court decision on the Flynn case siding with the Justice Department. But the FBI says no matter how it’s decided the after action review will continue.]

Bret Baier (Fox News)
The President gave an interview in which he said just the other Day -what does he think about this whole process is we wait for the Durham report, and he characterized it as “treason”.

(President Trump)
(“It’s treason -look, look- when I came out a long time ago, I said they’ve been spying on my campaign turned out I was right.”)

Bret Baier (Fox News)
What are you -looking at what you know- think this is?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
On the “Crossfire Hurricane” matter, that’s the subject of the I.G. report – I think it describes conduct that is unacceptable. Period. Full stop and cannot be allowed to happen and will not be allowed to happen in the FBI.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
-But whether it’s criminal or not?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
Criminal decisions, charging decisions, prosecution decisions are not made by the FBI director. Those are made by -across the street- at the Justice Department by the prosecutors.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
But somebody here altered that Pfizer report and that would be a criminal offense. Right.

FBI Director Christopher Wray
And that individual no longer works at the FBI and I don’t want to get out in front of the Durham investigation.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
Are you worried what the impact is going to be when that all comes out? Knowing what you know,

FBI Director Christopher Wray
I think allegations of misconduct need to be taken seriously. I think there are serious questions that have been raised here. And they need to be given a serious look. And whatever the impact is the impact is.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
Have you ever one-on-one, gone to the President, the oval office, and say, “Hey, listen. This is what I know. This is what the FBI did. And here’s what it is.”

FBI Director Christopher Wray
I have not met with the president one-on-one.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
You’ve not met ever with him one-on-one?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
No.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
And this President has publicly said he wants to see the jury is still out is what he said about you.

(President Trump)
“Let’s see what happens with him. Look, the jury’s still out.”

Bret Baier (Fox News)
If you don’t meet one on one with the president, and he says the jury’s still out. Are you worried at all about how the President thinks about you and the job?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
No, I think I have a very professional relationship with the president, which is I think what every FBI director and every president should have. I’ve certainly had plenty of occasions where I’ve met with the president just with others present. Right.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
You’re on Senator Graham’s list to testify. You expect to be up there testify on in his investigation?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
I’ll say I’ve testified quite frequently in this role, it seems to be a routine part of the job.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
What’s the toughest thing you deal with every day?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
The sheer volume of the threats that face this country is remarkable. And so just to give you a flavor of it, you know, in the past few months alone, our Joint Terrorism Task Forces have thwarted potential terrorist attacks in Tampa in New York, in Cleveland, Kansas City, and then you had COVID come in, right. And we’ve probably got over 400 COVID-19 fraud investigations open. We have probably in the last year, something like 1500 kids that the FBI has recovered or rescued from child sex, sexual exploitation or human trafficking. (And) We talked about China before. The FBI is opening a new counterintelligence investigation that ties back to China every 10 hours.

So you put some of those things and that’s just sort of the tip of the iceberg.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
And your relationship with the Attorney General?

FBI Director Christopher Wray
The Attorney General and I have, I think, an excellent working relationship. I value him as a friend and a colleague.

Bret Baier (Fox News)
Director Wray we appreciate the time. Thanks very much.

FBI Director Christopher Wray
Thanks, Brett.
