John Kennedy got a member of the Deep State to make this shocking confession

John Kennedy is known for his colorful and quotable remarks.

But he’s also one of the most effective Senators at grilling the Left in hearings.

And John Kennedy got a member of the Deep State to make this shocking confession.

FBI Director makes a shocking confession about departing Mexican President 

FBI Director Christopher Wray appeared before the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies to demand more money for the bureau.

U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) is pushing to begin construction as soon as possible on the FBI’s sprawling new headquarters in suburban Maryland outside of Washington, D.C.

Wray and the FBI wanted the new headquarters to be built in Northern Virginia.

U.S. Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) interrupted the exchange between Wray and Van Hollen about the inside baseball politics of the new FBI headquarters to ask an important question.

“Mr. Director, welcome,” Kennedy said. “I bet you just love talking about where to put the FBI building, don’t you? Probably one of your favorite topics.”

Kennedy asked about outgoing Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s connection to his country’s Mexican drug cartels.

“If you took the major Mexican drug cartels, which also traffic people into the United States and turned them upside down and shook them, President López Obrador would fall out of their pockets,” Kennedy said. “Wouldn’t he?”

“I don’t know that I can comment on the specific individual’s corruption other than through cases that we bring,” Wray replied. “But I understand the point that you’re making for sure.”

Wray’s remark wasn’t a statement of support for the integrity of the outgoing Mexican President.

Mexico’s role in creating the border crisis 

Kennedy asked if Mexico was cooperating with the United States on border security.

Wray gave a diplomatic answer that the Mexican authorities were trying  but not doing enough.

“. . . we need a whole lot more from Mexico than we’ve gotten in terms of shutting down the cartels and stopping the flow of the precursors,” Wray said. “I mean, I could go on and on. So, I’m grateful for the successes we have had, but we need a heck of a lot more.”

“Why don’t we use leverage of what I call NAFTA 2 to try to encourage the President of Mexico to cooperate more?” Kennedy asked.

Kennedy was referring to the renegotiation of the NAFTA free trade agreement under former President Donald Trump.

“We welcome every tool in the toolbox to try to improve the relationship and the cooperation,” Wray replied.

Kennedy, in his line of questioning, got the FBI Director to suggest that Mexico’s outgoing President was corrupt and that more needed to be done to leverage the Mexican government to help with border security.

The situation with the Mexican government could be getting worse after the country’s recent Presidential election.

Left-wing academic Claudia Sheinbaum won the election to replace him and figures to be as bad or worse than Obrador on border security.
