During a House Homeland Security Committee hearing, GOP Rep. Clay Higgins questioned FBI Director Christopher Wray about the presence of FBI informants at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, claiming they were disguised as Trump supporters.

Despite Higgins’ persistence, Wray refused to confirm the use of confidential human sources by the FBI.

Higgins also pointed to “ghost buses” he alleged were filled with FBI informants, but was cut off before he could conclude his statement. (Trending: Jury Reaches Verdict In Paul Pelosi Hammer Case)

“I asked you, ‘Did you have confidential human sources dressed as Trump supporters positioned inside the Capitol on Jan. 6 prior to the doors being opened?’ You responded … ‘I have to be very careful of what I say.’”

“A year has passed,” Higgins stated.

“We the people still do not have a definitive answer from you or anyone else in the Biden administration regarding the FBI presence and participation in the months leading up to the November [2020] election and in the weeks and days prior to Jan. 6 and on Jan. 6 here in D.C. We can’t get a straight answer.”

“Do you confirm that the FBI had confidential human sources at the Stop the Steal rally on Jan. 6 here in D.C., sir?” Higgins pressed.

“Congressman, as we’ve discussed before, I’m not going to get into where we have or have not used confidential human sources,” Wray answered.

Referencing an FBI informant, Higgins stated, “He said he was communicating with his FBI handler while people were entering the U.S. Capitol.”

“Can you confirm that the FBI had that sort of engagement with your own agents embedded within the crowd on Jan. 6?”

“If you are asking whether the violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6 was part of some operation orchestrated by FBI sources and/or agents, the answer is emphatically not.”

“You know what a ghost vehicle is, director? You’re the director of the FBI, you certainly should. You know what a ghost bus is?”

“A ghost bus?” Wray asked. “I’m not sure I’ve used that term before.”

“Pretty common in law enforcement,” Higgins said. “It’s a vehicle that’s used for secret purposes. It’s painted over.”

“These two buses in the middle here, they were the first to arrive at Union Station on Jan. 6 [at 5 a.m.] I have all this evidence. I’m showing you the tip of this iceberg. These two buses were painted completely white,” Higgins said of a photograph.

Higgins was then cut short by Rep. Glenn Ivey of Maryland.

“May I close this statement?” Higgins asked.

“No,” Green said. “I think your time is expired.”

“This is a very significant hearing, Mr. Chairman, and these buses are nefarious in nature and were filled with FBI informants dressed as Trump supporters, deployed into our Capitol on Jan. 6.”

“Your day is coming, Mr. Wray,” Higgins said after being rejected.

The exchange highlighted ongoing concerns and accusations regarding FBI involvement in the events leading up to and during the Capitol incursion.
