FBI Director Wray Suggests Creating New Policy on Body Cams for Federal Task Forces

FBI Director Christopher Wray suggested the federal government will try to reverse the Justice Department’s policy that bars federal agents and local officers from wearing body cams during joint investigations.

Wray, who was speaking at the International Association of Chiefs Police conference in Chicago, said any new policy must ensure that body cams don’t reseal sensitive information or the identities of informants, the Associated Press reports.

The DOJ’s policy on body cams prompted Atlanta’s police chief to remove city police officers from federal task forces.

Wray said he’s committed to preserving the strong relationship between the FBI and local law enforcement.

“We want to make sure that we find some middle ground that we’re all comfortable with,” Wray said. “The good news is we’re talking about it. We’re getting it all out on the table, and I’m actually confident we are going to find a way forward here.”

Comey Says House ‘Has No Choice’ But to Move Forward with Impeachment Inquiry of Trump

Former FBI Director James Comey, who joked that he’d move to New Zealand if Trump was re-elected, said the House of Representatives “has no choice but to pursue an impeachment inquiry.”

Comey blasted Trump’s call with Ukraine during a wide-ranging interview at the bipartisan Politicon political convention in Nashville, Tenn., on Saturday.

If he were still in charge of the FBI, Comey said he “might” launch a criminal investigation into whether Trump’s call with Ukraine’s president constituted a quid pro quo.

“If the news accounts are accurate, the president engaged in a shocking abuse of power,” Comey said.

But, he said, he wants to “withhold judgment” on impeachment until “we have a chance as a country to see public testimony to get the transparency we deserve.”

During the interview, Comey said he believes America is held together by a “set of values.” When asked if he’d still believe that if Trump was re-elected, Comey joked, “From my new home in New Zealand, I will still believe in America.”
