On Tuesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray said that the bureau completed its background investigation of former White House staff secretary Rob Porter last year. The testimony contradicts the White House's assertion that the FBI “process” was ongoing.
Wray told lawmakers at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing that the FBI submitted a partial report to the White House in March on Porter and completed its scrub of the ex-aide’s background in late July. Porter's position involved access to the nation’s most sensitive secrets,
Wray said the FBI completed a follow-up in November after one was requested and "administratively closed the file" in January. He added that the FBI received additional information in February and passed that along, too.
