An FBI document that accuses President Biden of involvement in a criminal bribery scheme as vice president was seen on Capitol Hill Monday by a top Republican lawmaker, who said the source is legitimate and the behavior is consistent with other schemes Hunter Biden has been engaged in.
According to the Washington Times:
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said Monday FBI officials revealed that an informant file alleging President Biden engaged in a bribery scheme during his vice presidency is part of an ongoing federal investigation that involves shell companies . . .
“It suggests a pattern of bribery where payments would be made through shell accounts and multiple banks.
“There’s a term for that, it’s called money laundering,” Mr. Comer said. “So we feel that this accusation is consistent with a pattern that we’re seeing, frankly, in other countries.”
Mr. Comer said the confidential FBI source “who provided information about then-Vice President Biden being involved in a criminal bribery scheme is a trusted, highly credible informant who has been used by the FBI for over 10 years and has been paid over six figures.”
When asked how the so-called 1023 form, which was subpoenaed by the committee last month, was related to an active FBI investigation, Mr. Comer said he believes the document is tied to the years-long U.S. Attorney’s probe of the president’s son Hunter Biden in Delaware.
Looks like the modern-day Woodward and Bernsteins at the Washington Post and New York Times are sitting on the keyboards for this one.
