On Thursday President Biden criticized the Republicans for their attempts to get the FBI to hand over a document that lawmakers have alleged detailed information about a criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national.
In a press conference with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, President Biden replied to a reporter who shouted a question by asking back where the money was. He proceeded to state that he was “joking” but that the entire case is a “bunch of malarkey.”
The question about the FBI document was asked by a New York Post reporter, following Rep. Nancy Mace’s (R-S.C.) claims that President Biden “sold out his country” and that the American people had the right to know what that document contained.
Republicans, House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) have requested from the FBI a document that allegedly contains information about an unverified “alleged criminal scheme” involving Biden and a foreign national. Comer was also prepared to start the proceedings to hold FBI Director Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress after the FBI had originally refused to hand over the document. However, the process was later canceled as the FBI did give members of the panel access to review the document.
On Wednesday the White House attacked Comer’s credibility stating that he was in the practice of “laundering thin innuendo.” A memo also highlighted that none of the allegations were backed by facts and that the FBI prosecutors have so far not corroborated the allegations.
