Tuesday, Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley wrote to Attorney General Merrick Garland that the FBI had dozens of informants with evidence of Biden family malfeasance, but refused to act on the information.
“This letter is based on years of investigation, including the provision of information, records, and allegations from multiple Justice Department whistleblowers that indicate there is — and has been — an effort among certain Justice Department and FBI officials to improperly delay and stop full and complete investigative activity into the Biden family,” Grassley wrote.
“As just one initial example, I’ve been made aware that at one point in time the FBI maintained over 40 Confidential Human Sources that provided criminal information relating to Joe Biden, James Biden, and Hunter Biden,” he added. James Biden is the president’s brother.
“An essential question that must be answered is this: did the FBI investigate the information or shut it down? Indeed, if those sources were improperly shut down, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for the FBI,” Grassley argued.
The senator cited an FBI FD-1023 form from 2020 which claimed that Joe and Hunter Biden were each bribed $5 million by the proprietor of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, Mykola Zlochevsky, while Joe Biden was vice president and the designated point man for Ukraine policy during the Obama administration.
Additionally, Grassley referenced claims put forth by Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Joe Biden, which suggested that the Bidens obtained an unsecured $5 million loan from the Chinese energy company CEFC in 2017 “as payment for actions Joe Biden took during his vice presidency.”
“This financial strategy to illegally treat income as a loan is consistent with IRS whistleblower testimony that indicated Hunter Biden attempted the same with respect to other income, including payments received from Burisma,” Grassley added.
The senator further asserted that the FBI used an August 2020 assessment by FBI supervisory intelligence analyst Brian Auten to “improperly discredit negative Hunter Biden information as disinformation and [cause] investigative activity to cease.”
Senate Judiciary Committee member Grassley stated that he has obtained the identities of twenty-five DOJ and FBI personnel whom he intends to interrogate and who obstructed investigations into the Bidens, either directly or indirectly.
Grassley told Garland that he wants “all records related to derogatory information on Hunter Biden, James Biden, Joe Biden and their foreign business relationships.”
Based on Grassley’s letter, Fox News host Jesse Watters said on his program “Primetime” on Wednesday night, “For years, we’ve told you the FBI knew everything the Bidens were up to — the cash, the Chinese diamonds, American policy for sale.”

“What does it mean that the FBI hasn’t done a thing?” Watters asked.
“Well, it tells me that the FBI knows all of the president’s dirty laundry and is blackmailing him, because Sen. Grassley also revealed that multiple FBI field offices tried to run this criminal information back to headquarters and were blocked at every corner.”
The Fox anchor argued that criminal investigations into the Bidens that date back to at least the 2020 election have been terminated by the FBI.
“Grassley says FBI headquarters deliberately smeared criminal information coming from FBI informants about the Biden family as foreign disinformation, when in fact, after an exhaustive examination, there’s never been any information that any of this has been foreign,” Watters said.
He is convinced that specific FBI officials influenced the organization’s actions in 2020 so that Joe Biden could defeat Donald Trump.
“The FBI used Biden to get revenge on Trump. They got a dirty politician elected so they could defeat a politician who caught them trying to frame him and fired their director,” Watters said. “And now we have a compromised president in the White House being protected by a rogue gang of sick agents.”
Special counsel John Durham concluded that the Crossfire Hurricane investigation into the Trump campaign, which the FBI initiated in the summer of 2016, was predominately motivated by the Steele dossier, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign.
In May 2017, Trump dismissed FBI Director James Comey. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to investigate the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, approximately one week later.
Nearly two years later, Mueller’s team concluded that no evidence of collusion had been discovered.
“The American people are the real victims of this stupid inside game,” Watters said of the FBI’s apparent efforts to suppress evidence of Biden family wrongdoing.
“You’re paying more for everything, the border is wide open and crime is sky-high,” he continued. “And we have two proxy wars that Biden can’t manage. All because the FBI believes it’s more powerful than democracy.”
