GOP Lawmakers Demand FBI Briefing on Jan. 6 Pipe Bomb Investigation -

• By Debra Heine

Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are demanding an FBI briefing on the status of their January 6 Pipe Bomb Investigation following disclosures that the feds have enough information to identify a suspect.

In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) and Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.) said the slow progression of the Bureau's investigation into the pipe bombs "raises significant concerns about the FBI's prioritization of that case in relation to other January 6 investigations."

Former FBI agent Kyle Seraphin, a whistleblower who worked on the pipe bomb investigation, told the Washington Times that after planting the bombs, the suspect used a MetroRail SmarTrip card to travel through the Washington metro system to a stop in northern Virginia.

"The FBI used security footage in the Northern Virginia to identify the license plate of the car that the individual entered," the congressmen wrote. "Still, the FBI has not identified the subject."
