FBI director caves, agrees to let Congress see Biden 'bribery' document

This story was originally published by the WND News Center.

Shortly after a report appeared in The Federalist that Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, already has seen the FBI document, under subpoena, that purportedly documents a $5 million bribe to Joe Biden to make government decisions on behalf of a foreign interest, FBI chief Christopher Wray caved in, and agreed to let other members see it, too.

He had been refusing to submit to the congressional subpoena for the paperwork that a whistleblower confirmed was in the FBI's possession.

It apparently documents Biden's agreement to accept money from a foreign national to affect policy decisions.

It is Just the News that reported Wray, since he was "facing a potential contempt of Congress vote," agreed "to bring a subpoenaed document from the Biden family investigation to Capitol Hill for lawmakers to inspect on Monday."

Those details were announced by House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer.

It's an FBI FD-1023 that purportedly contains uncorroborated allegations that an informant provided the FBI in June 2020 "alleging that Joe Biden, when he was vice president, was engaged in a bribery scheme to change U.S. policy in return for $5 million to his family’s businesses," lawmakers have confirmed.

Only hours earlier, Wray said he would not follow the subpoena law and provide the document.

"Chairman Comer will receive a briefing from the FBI and review the document on Monday," his committee told Just the News in a statement. "Chairman Comer has been clear that anything short of producing the FD-1023 form to the House Oversight Committee is not compliance with his subpoena. This unclassified record contains pages of details that need to be investigated further by the House Oversight Committee."

Just the News noted the FBI's statement on the issue was: "Director Wray offered to provide the Committee’s Chairman and Ranking Member an opportunity to review information responsive to the subpoena in a secure manner to accommodate the committee while protecting the confidentiality and safety of sources and important investigative sensitivities. The FBI has continually demonstrated its commitment to working with the Committee to accommodate its request, from scheduling briefings and calls to now allowing the Chair to review information in person. The FBI remains committed to cooperating with the Committee in good faith."
