Breitbart reports that key whistleblower testimony will also be made available:
It will also be the first hearing since the House Ways and Means Committee released transcripts from two IRS whistleblowers who alleged that the Biden Justice Department interfered with their investigation into Hunter Biden.
Republican lawmakers took the chance to call out Wray for the irreparable damage that has occurred to the Bureau under his watch.
Congressman Ben Cline tweeted: “Under Director Christopher Wray’s leadership, the FBI has become politicized and the American people’s trust in the institution has been damaged.”

Former Governor Chris Christie attempted to take the heat off of Wray, according to Washington Examiner:
“Well, look, all those problems happened under the Jim Comey era,” Christie said, referencing John Durham’s report.
“And Christopher Wray has come in and fired every person that was in the Comey leadership team in the FBI. These whistleblowers have come out because the atmosphere has allowed it to happen now, not during the Comey era.”
“The fact is that these other folks in the race, they just are looking for a scapegoat,” Christie said.
“They want to blame anybody. I will tell them who to blame.
Blame Joe Biden and Merrick Garland, who have not provided the type of leadership in the country or at the Justice Department that you need.”
