Some top Republicans are using their newfound power of the subpoena to get to the bottom of several President Joe Biden-related scandals, including what many believe was a widespread, long-duration influence-peddling scheme spearheaded by Hunter Biden.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) is one of the Republicans fighting to obtain records, specifically regarding an FBI-generated form that allegedly details a criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Biden.
The revelation of the form's existence came via one of several FBI whistleblowers who've come forward with potentially damaging information about the Biden family's overseas dealings.
The FBI originally denied a subpoena for the form. On Friday, Comer sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray demanding the form once again.
Comer held nothing back in the letter penned to Wray, calling the agency's actions regarding the form "unacceptable."
“The FBI’s delay in producing a single, unclassified record is unacceptable,” Comer said in a statement.
“The information provided by a whistleblower raises concerns that then-Vice President Biden allegedly engaged in a bribery scheme with a foreign national. The FBI must provide this record to Congress without further delay. The American people demand the truth and accountability for any wrongdoing. That starts with getting this record."
He added: "The FBI’s well-documented failures in politically sensitive investigations have eroded public confidence over the past few years."
The document allegedly details a bribery scheme between then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national who may have influenced American policy.
Should that be the case, it could mark a death blow to Biden's 2024 presidential campaign, which is just now getting off the ground.
Late-breaking news emerged suggesting House Speaker Kevin McCarthy believes Director Wray will, in fact, comply with the request for the form. The two reportedly had a recent phone call regarding the brewing situation.

"I explained to the director that we will do everything in our power, and [that] we have jurisdiction over the FBI - that we have the right to see this document," the House speaker said. "I believe, after this call, we will get this document."
Only time will tell if McCarthy's right, but if he is, and if the document contains what the whistleblower says it does, this could mark a whole new chapter in modern presidential scandals.
