From a half-glass perspective, the FBI director has not denied that they are investigating high-profile Republican Party politicians, including Trump, for their role in the attack on the Capitol.

Republicans are trying to make America forget about the January 6 attack, but elected officials like Rep. Cohen are not letting them off the hook. Trump's terrorist attack on the Capitol will not be forgotten, and the Democrats will pressure the FBI to investigate Trump and the Republican elected who may have been involved.
