On Monday (June 5), a member of the House Oversight Committee alleged the FBI is afraid a whistleblower who accused President Joe Biden of being involved in a criminal bribery scheme with a foreigner while he was vice president could be “killed” if they are identified.
Taking to Twitter, Republican Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (Fla.) revealed that after leaving a House Oversight closer briefing with the FBI that the bureau was “afraid their informant will be killed” because they had exposed the Biden family.
According to reporting by Fox News Digital, Luna shared that she considered the FBI’s concerns “alarming and scary.”
Last month, a whistleblower contacted Comer and Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) claiming that the FBI was in possession of a document — Form FD-1023 — dated June 30, 2020, that contained detailed information provided by a confidential informant about allegations that Biden was involved in a $5 million criminal bribery scheme with a foreign national in exchange for influencing political decisions as vice president.
The FBI’s confidential human source, which the agency used in several investigative cases during the Obama administration, has been described as “highly credible” by sources familiar with the matter.
Reports also surfaced last week that the confidential human source who shared the Biden information with the FBI was a “pre-existing” FBI source whose information was used in several investigations separate from the Biden information.
Comer subpoenaed the FBI’s FD-1023 document last month, but the bureau refused to hand it over, saying it was trying to protect its sources and methods of gathering information.
Comer then warned he would hold FBI Director Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress if the agency did not release the physical document to the Committee.
On Monday, Comer followed through with his warning, beginning the process of holding Wray in Contempt, despite receiving a briefing about the document from bureau officials.
