On Wednesday, James Comer (R) KY, House Oversight Committee Chair, revealed that the FBI confirmed the existence of an informant file, that the bureau refuses to provide Congress. The file allegedly links President Joe Biden to a $5 million bribery scheme, a confirmation that the Justice Department previously did not deny.
According to NewsNation, FBI Director Christopher Wray confirmed the existence of the subpoenaed document to Comer. The FD-1023 form, alleges, then-Vice President Joe Biden, engaged in a criminal bribery scheme with a foreign national. Hoping to connect the dots between this allegation and the Biden family bank records already received, Comer has requested the file.
On Wednesday, Wray and Comer, met in a scheduled phone meeting, with Sen. Chuck Grassley (R) IA who was also on the call. At that time, the bureau chief confirmed the subpoenaed file’s existence. Grassley, who has been an integral part of these investigations, in a statement previously had said-
“The FBI has continued to tie itself in knots to ignore a legitimate subpoena from Congress, which has a constitutional duty of oversight. The Bureau’s developed a serious reputation problem through its spate of failures and overreach, and leadership is doing it no favors by attempting to stiff-arm Congress. The FBI knows exactly what document Chairman Comer and I are seeking, and if they know us at all, they know we will get it, one way or another. If FBI leadership truly cares about protecting the agency’s reputation, they’d cooperate. These needless delays only harm the Bureau,”-Sen. Chuck Grassley (R) IA
So far, in Bank records obtained by the Congressional Oversight Committee, Breitbart reported that-
“Earlier this month - In total, Biden family members and business associates designed a web of over 20 companies, many of which were formed during Joe Biden’s vice presidency, the committee revealed. In total, the Biden family, business associates, and companies received over $10 million from foreign nationals’ companies, the committee found.” …and
“Comer’s probe into the Biden family found that the Biden family business over the course of several years received at least $10 million from business schemes in Romania and China. A total of nine Biden family members received payments from the family foreign business ventures, including two of Joe Biden’s grandchildren, he revealed in May.”-Breitbart
The revelation of these funds received, for whatever reason, are in direct contradiction of President Joe Biden’s claims that his family received no money from China. The verified discovery, and now the alleged existence of the FD-1023 form, also raise questions about what the Biden family provided in terms of services or products for the monies they received. These questions require answers, because American deserved the truth.
Reportedly, Comer doubled-down on his threat to hold Wray in contempt of Congress, because Comer said the FBI still refuses to provide the subpoenaed, unclassified file to Congress. The FBI reportedly said that Comer could view the document at the FBI’s headquarters, in direct defiance of congressional oversight, a power directly established under the U.S. Constitution.
Comer said in a statement.
“Today, FBI Director Wray confirmed the existence of the FD-1023 form alleging then-Vice President Biden engaged in a criminal bribery scheme with a foreign national,”… “However, Director Wray did not commit to producing the documents subpoenaed by the House Oversight Committee.”
“While Director Wray, after a month of refusing to even acknowledge that the form existed ,has offered to allow us to see the documents in person at FBI headquarters, we have been clear that anything short of producing these documents to the House Oversight Committee is not in compliance with the subpoena,”…adding… “If the FBI fails to hand over the FD-1023 form as required by the subpoena, the House Oversight Committee will begin contempt of Congress proceedings.”-James Comer (R) KY, House Oversight Committee Chair
Additionally, backing up the committee, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) warned Wray that if he failed to provide the file, he would begin the process to hold Wray in contempt of Congress. Both Comer and McCarthy are not backing down.
It looks very much like Congress will indeed have to start contempt proceedings. The petulant Wray, does not seem inclined to do his job and comply with the congressional request before him. He apparently views his position as that above Congress, and prefers to directly oppose the peoples will in doing so. Stay tuned.
