On Wednesday, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer and Senator Chuck Grassley said that a whistleblower claims the FBI and Justice Department are in possession of a document detailing a criminal scheme implicating then-Vice President Joe Biden and a foreign national concerning the exchange of money for policy decisions.
Comer, R-Ky., and Grassley, R-Iowa, said the whistleblower claims the document includes a detailed description of the alleged criminal scheme’s operation and purpose.
An FBI-generated FD-1023 form allegedly outlines an arrangement involving the exchange of money for policy decisions.
Comer issued a subpoena following legally protected disclosures to Grassley’s office on Wednesday.
Grassley stated that they have reason to believe the FBI has a document that contains significant and comprehensive charges involving the current President of the United States. What the FBI has done, if anything, to confirm these claims or investigate further remains unknown. Congress must watch the FBI closely because of its recent history of botching politically motivated probes.
Comer also noted that the details of the alleged bribery plan between Biden and a foreign national raise serious concerns.
According to Comer, Americans should know if Biden betrayed the country for financial gain. Both Comer and Grassley will investigate to ensure accountability for the American people.
On Wednesday, Comer and Grassley informed FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland of the declassified highly credible whistleblower disclosures.
Comer and Grassley wrote that the disclosures led them to believe that the Justice Department and the FBI have access to an unclassified FD-1023 form detailing an alleged criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden and a foreign national involving the exchange of money for policy decisions. According to the whistleblower, the form provides a detailed description of the alleged criminal scheme.
According to Comer and Grassley, the DOJ and the FBI have adequate information to assess the truth and accuracy of the information included in the document due to the purported detail within it.
They wrote that the public has a strong interest in evaluating the FBI’s reaction to this information and that growing concerns about the DOJ and the FBI’s history of allowing political bias to infect their decision-making process necessitate stringent congressional oversight.
In addition, they informed the DOJ and FBI that Congress would conduct an independent and objective assessment of this problem, free from their influence because it appears that the agencies have valuable, verifiable evidence that they failed to provide to the American people.
They wrote that openness leads to responsibility.
Hunter Biden’s international business interests, the extent to which the Biden family has been involved, and whether or not President Biden was involved in these dealings are all subjects of an investigation by Comer’s committee. Comer says business deals with persons in China, Ukraine, and other countries threaten national security.
Grassley has been investigating Hunter Biden’s business operations and the possible involvement of Joe Biden since 2019.
According to the White House, the President has never discussed business transactions with his son and has consistently denied involvement. According to these same officials, the President has never discussed any investigations of his relatives with the DOJ.
As evidenced by White House visitor logs, more than a dozen of Hunter’s business acquaintances are documented as having visited the Obama White House while Biden was Vice President.
After discovering suspicious activity reports (SARs) in 2018 involving Chinese and other foreign monies, the federal government started investigating Hunter Biden’s tax dealings.
The FBI acknowledged receiving the correspondence but offered no more comment.
