A whistleblower has come forward to Congress and said that the FBI and DOJ are in possession of a document that proves President Joe Biden's involvement in a criminal scheme with a foreign national relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said Wednesday.
The whistleblower said the document is an FBI-generated FD-1023 form that "includes a precise description of how the alleged criminal scheme was employed as well as its purpose."
Comer issued a subpoena for the form on Wednesday after the disclosure to Grassley's office.
"We believe the FBI possesses an unclassified internal document that includes very serious and detailed allegations implicating the current President of the United States," Grassley said. "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."
"The American people need to know if President Biden sold out the United States of America to make money for himself," Comer said. "Senator Grassley and I will seek the truth to ensure accountability for the American people."
"It would appear that the DOJ and the FBI have enough information to determine the truth and accuracy of the information contained within [the document]," they said. "However, it remains unclear what steps, if any, were taken to investigate the matter."
Comer and Grassley said that based on the disclosures, the FBI and DOJ may have failed to act on clear information indicating a potential criminal scheme, which would also be subject to further investigation.
"The DOJ and the FBI appear to have valuable, verifiable information that you have failed to disclose to the American people," they added, making it clear that Congress "will proceed to conduct an independent and objective review of this matter, free from those agencies’ influence."
"Transparency brings accountability," they concluded.
A spokesperson for the White House, Ian Sams, said that for "going on five years now, Republicans in Congress have been lobbing unfounded, unproven, politically-motivated attacks against the President and his family without offering evidence for their claims or evidence of decisions influenced by anything other than U.S. interests."
"That’s because they prefer floating anonymous innuendo, amplified by the megaphone of their allies in rightwing media, to get attention and try to distract and deflect from their own unpopular ideas and lack of solutions to the issues the American people actually care about," Sams said. "When it comes to President Biden’s personal finances, anybody can take a look: he has offered an unprecedented level of transparency, releasing a total of 25 years of tax returns to the American public."
The question is, do Biden's tax returns contain all of his financial transactions, as Sams suggests? The House Oversight Committee has been looking into Biden's bank records and those of about a dozen family members, and they have reported a number of suspicious transactions at this point in the investigation.
The FBI confirmed that it had the letter from Comer, but made no other comment.
This is getting interesting.
