James Comer Cancels Contempt Vote After FBI Caves on Alleged Biden Bribery Doc

Eleven hours before the House Oversight Committee would assemble to vote on holding FBI Director Wray in Contempt of Congress, the FBI agreed to permit members of the Oversight Committee to review an unclassified informant file that allegedly links President Joe Biden to a $5 million bribery scheme.

Wednesday evening, Comer canceled the 9 a.m. Thursday vote to hold Wray in contempt. In exchange, the FBI finally agreed to allow the members to review the document, a demand on which Comer insisted from nearly the beginning of the negotiations.

“After weeks of refusing to even admit the FD-1023 record exists,” the committee stated in a press release, “the FBI has caved and is now allowing all members of the Oversight and Accountability Committee to review this unclassified record that memorializes a confidential human source’s conversations with a foreign national who claimed to have bribed then-Vice President Joe Biden.”

In May, Comer and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) levied bombshell claims after reviewing an FBI FD-1023 form that documented the informant’s allegations of an alleged bribery scheme involving an exchange of money for policy decisions between now-President Joe Biden and a foreign national.

The FBI’s informant file allegedly linked Joe Biden to the family’s business deals in Ukraine, House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) revealed Tuesday.

The FBI file originated from an interview the bureau conducted with an informant, who is reportedly a “highly credible” FBI source with a history dating back to the Barack Obama administration.

“Allowing all Oversight Committee members to review this record is an important step toward conducting oversight of the FBI and holding it accountable to the American people,” the committee added. 

On Tuesday, former Attorney General Bill Barr dispelled the White House and House Oversight Committee ranking member Jamie Raskin’s (D-MD) claim that the Justice Department ended the bribery probe. Raskin argued the Trump administration resolved an informant’s claims.

“Let’s be clear: the allegations contained within this record are not closed as the White House and Democrats would have the American people believe,” the committee wrote. “Former Attorney General Barr confirmed this information was sent to the U.S. Attorney in Delaware for further investigation and the FBI has confirmed it is being used in an ongoing investigation.”

  1. You need to clean out the FBI and charge them for their crimes along with the Biden family. Our government needs to be cleaned up, too many corrupt politicians.

  2. Do you really think that the FBI is going to let the Oversight Committee see the real document—–h— no !!!! They’ll find a way to doctor up the paper in question just to hide their corrupt a—- !!!!! Republicans have their big work ahead of them and the American people better listen up and get involved because our America is going down the old sh–hole fast—A Third World Country!!!!!

  3. The documentation provided shows what we already knew. That the Biden family are the lowest of the low, 2nd only to Shrillery KKKlinton. I’m actually shocked that Wray disobeyed Bidens regime to avoid prison time!

  4. Forget Impeachment. It’s long , long , long ,
    past time for charges of Treason ! These bastards have been,… are now betraying the American people for quite long enough. The list of politicians who should’ve been charged with Treason is an extremely long one. Try the Entire Communist/Democratic so called party and the Rinos who’ve actually helped them.

  5. I agree with Cindy. There is no way the oversight committee will see the real documents. This is probably a show for the American people; whom many still faithfully believe in a corrupt government, and I’m talking about the blurred line between dems and republican, which to me are one and the same. What a shit show America has become.


  7. Whatever the documents given to the Oversight Committee had been changed. That is why the FBI refused to submit them at the beginning until they made changes in the documents. The Democrats and Biden paid Christopher Wray and the DOJ millions of dollars to do that. I totally agreed with Cindy. Wake up James Comer and also members of the Oversight Committee!

  8. Biden is the worst president in my lifetime. The evidence will come out . Another witch hunt by the current administration. They are so afraid of Trump. They sling any kind of crap hoping something sticks. It hasn’t yet.
