After a nearly month-long battle, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has agreed to honor a Congressional subpoena. That subpoena covers documents the FBI has already admitted could put President Biden and his son in a bad light.
The FBI admits…
This subpoena specifically demanded any and all Forms FD-1023, “created or modified in June 2020,” mentioning the Biden family name. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, signed onto the subpoena. But all Rep. Comer had to go on was a whistleblower’s word concerning then-Vice-President Biden taking a bribe. The larger problem, besides bribery per se, is that a foreign national allegedly paid it. (Form FD-1023 covers documents, tips, and other information from informers, information not necessarily verified.)
But Director Wray refused to furnish any documents, alleging no such documents exist. The situation so angered Rep. Comer that he threatened to hold Director Wray in contempt of Congress. Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Speaker of the House, backed Comer on this threat.
Then on May 31, 2023, the impasse broke, according to Breitbart. In short, the FBI now admits that at least one such FD-1023 exists. The agency might not have conceded this much, except that Sen. Grasssley and Rep. Comer told Wray they had seen the form for themselves.
At first the FBI merely invited Comer to view the document at its headquarters.
That did not satisfy Rep. Comer, who shot back that if the FBI did not hand over that document, House Oversight would hold Director Wray in contempt.
No one offers any explanation for Director Wray’s sudden change of attitude, other than that “he simply caved.”
Apparently the FBI will brief the Committee and hand over the document on Monday (June 5). Whether the document will come redacted or unredacted, will not be clear until then.
