Grassley warns FBI and DOJ to cooperate with subpoena or risk credibility damage.

Sen. Chuck Grassley: DOJ and FBI Must Cooperate with Subpoena or Damage Credibility

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has warned that the Department of Justice and FBI will further damage their credibility if they do not cooperate with a subpoena from lawmakers to produce documents related to a report that they received from a whistleblower about alleged criminal activity involving then-Vice President Joe Biden.

Explosive Allegations

Grassley and House Committee on Oversight James Comer (R-KY) said in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray that “it has come to our attention that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the 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.”

Grassley repeatedly doubled down on the source that gave him the information, saying that it came from “very credible sources within the department.”

Grassley said that he was fearful that the unclassified document contains information that is so explosive that the administration could have it classified and try to keep it out of the hands of Congress.

Transparency and Credibility

Garland told Fox News’ “America Reports” that “if the Justice Department and the FBI have any hopes of redeeming their once trusted position with the American people, Garland and Wray must answer this subpoena and tell us what they’re doing with this information that we think is very credible based upon what whistleblowers are telling us.”

Grassley said that he expects the document to be “very difficult to get” because of how “explosive” it is, and that “the American people deserve transparency from the FBI.”

Grassley said that if the FBI and DOJ do not produce the records, it hurts their credibility. “I would hope they’d want to enhance their credibility by cooperating with us on this,” he added.
