FBI Director Christopher Wray is coming under increased bipartisan pressure in Congress to expose alleged Saudi ties to the 9/11 attacks as the 20-year anniversary of the terror strikes looms.

Ted Deutch, D-Fla., and Thomas Massie, R-Ky., pressed recently for the release of long-secret documents — with Wray committing publicly for the first time to “share as much information as we can.”
