Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, and Rep. James Comer, the chair of the House Oversight Committee, cite an internal FBI document as evidence of President Joe Biden’s alleged participation in “a criminal scheme” to exchange money for policy decisions. The alleged bribery occurred purportedly during Biden’s tenure as vice president.
“We have received legally protected and highly credible unclassified whistleblower disclosures, ” reads a Wednesday letter addressed to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray. “It has come to our attention that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) possess an unclassified FD-1023 form that describes an alleged criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions. It has been alleged that the document includes a precise description of how the alleged criminal scheme was employed as well as its purpose.”
Wednesday, Senators Grassley and Comer sent letters to the FBI requesting the release of an unclassified record regarding an alleged criminal conspiracy between then-vice president Joe Biden and a foreign national.
The FBI devised the FD-1023 form, which purports to illustrate a transaction in which money was exchanged for policy decisions. Wednesday, in response to “legally protected disclosures” made to Grassley’s office, Comer issued a subpoena.
“We believe the FBI possesses an unclassified internal document that includes very serious and detailed allegations implicating the current President of the United States. What we don’t know is what, if anything, the FBI has done to verify these claims or investigate further. The FBI’s recent history of botching politically charged investigations demands close congressional oversight,” Grassley said in a statement.
Comer claimed in his statement that the “information provided by a whistleblower raises concerns that then-Vice President Biden allegedly engaged in a bribery scheme with a foreign national.”
“The American people need to know if President Biden sold out the United States of America to make money for himself. Senator Grassley and I will seek the truth to ensure accountability for the American people,” Comer continued.
Grassley has long raised concerns about political bias infecting high-level investigative decisions at the FBI, including investigations related to the Biden family’s foreign business arrangements and bank records. While FBI Director Christopher Wray pledged to prevent any retaliation targeting whistleblowers, the FBI and Justice Department have thus far refused to voluntarily provide responsive records or answers to congressional inquiries related to its handling of these politically sensitive investigations.
Comer and the Oversight Committee are investigating the Biden family’s suspicious business schemes to determine if the Biden family has been targeted by foreign actors, if President Biden is compromised, and if there is a national security threat. The Oversight Committee has obtained thousands of pages of financial records related to the Biden family and their associates’ business transactions. Recently, the Committee revealed one deal that resulted in several members of the Biden family and their companies receiving over $1 million in more than 15 incremental payments from a Chinese company through a third party. -oversight.house.gov
Comer’s subpoena requires Wray to appear before the Committee on Oversight and Accountability on May 10 at noon.
