CRUZ FED UP WITH FEDS: Watch the Senator Grill the FBI on January 6th Involvement

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.11.22

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) wants answers about the FBI’s involvement in the events of January 6th, but Jill Sanborn, FBI Executive Assistant Director, isn’t giving him much.

According to the Daily Wire, “Jill Sanborn, FBI Executive Assistant Director, National Security Branch, refused to answer on Tuesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing whether FBI agents or confidential informants actively participated in the events of January 6, 2021, and whether they committed any crimes of violence or actively encouraged crimes of violence.”

“Sanborn was grilled by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on the matter and repeatedly stated that she could not answer the question because she could not “go into the specifics of sources and methods.”

CRUZ: I want to turn to the FBI. How many FBI agents or confidential informants actively participated in the events of January 6th? 

SANBORN: Sir, I’m sure you can appreciate that I can’t go into the specifics of sources and methods. 

CRUZ: Did any FBI agents or confidential informants actively participate in the events of January 6th? Yes or no?

SANBORN: Sir, I can’t. I can’t answer that. 

CRUZ: Did any FBI agents or confidential informants commit crimes of violence on January 6th? 

SANBORN: I can’t answer that, sir. 

CRUZ: Did any FBI agents or FBI informants actively encourage and incite crimes of violence on January 6th? 

SANBORN: Sir, I can’t answer that.
