Republican Lawmakers Accuse President Biden of Bribery Scheme
Republican Senator Chuck Grassley and House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer wrote a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland, alleging that President Joe Biden engaged in a bribery scheme with a foreign national during his time as vice president under the Obama administration. The lawmakers claim that a credible whistleblower provided information about the scheme, which involved money in exchange for U.S. policy changes.
What Did the Letter Say?
According to the letter, the DOJ and the FBI possess an unclassified FD-1023 form that describes the alleged criminal scheme. The document reportedly includes a precise description of how the scheme was employed and its purpose. The lawmakers believe that the DOJ and the FBI have enough information to determine the truth and accuracy of the information contained within the document. However, it remains unclear what steps, if any, were taken to investigate the matter.
Why is This Significant?
The significant public interest in assessing the FBI’s response to this information, as well as growing concern about the DOJ and the FBI’s track record of allowing political bias to infect their decision-making process, necessitate exacting congressional oversight. The DOJ and the FBI appear to have valuable, verifiable information that they have failed to disclose to the American people. Therefore, Congress will proceed to conduct an independent and objective review of this matter, free from those agencies’ influence.
What is the White House’s Response?
When asked about the developing scandal during the briefing at the White House Thursday, National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby referred all questions to the Department of Justice and was quickly pulled from the lectern.
The allegations made by Republican lawmakers against President Biden are serious and require further investigation. The DOJ and the FBI must be transparent about their handling of the alleged criminal scheme and provide the American people with the truth. Congress will conduct an independent and objective review of this matter to ensure that justice is served.
