High-profile congressional Republicans have managed to pile more pressure on the FBI.
They’re practically forcing the federal agency to retreat into a corner over its stubborn, outrageous refusal to give the House Oversight Committee an informant file document.
This document claims President Joe “Multiple Scandals” Biden participated in a $5 million bribery plot while he was the vice president for Barack Obama.
Three Key Results
The unclassified document that Rep. James Comer, head of the House Oversight Committee, subpoenaed over a week ago features allegations by an FBI informant that Sleepy Joe was paid off by a foreign national.
In what might as well be an attempt to cover up alleged top-level corruption in the US government, the FBI defied all morality, law, and logic. It snubbed the GOP request for handing over the unclassified record from 2020.
After Comer’s subpoena deadline expired earlier last week, he and Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa held a call with Christopher Wray, the FBI chief, to figure out first-hand how to handle the bureau’s pro-Biden “obstructionism,” Breitbart News reports.
The Comer – Grassley – Wray conversation produced three main outcomes.
The FBI boss acknowledged the Biden bribery record exists. He tried to appease House Republicans by offering Comer to view the paper at the FBI headquarters and it solidified the GOP leaders’ decision to hold Wray and his team in contempt of the United States Congress.
Today, the FBI informed @GOPoversight that it will not provide the unclassified documents subpoenaed by the Committee.
The Committee will now be taking steps to hold FBI Director Wray in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a lawful subpoena.

FBI Chief Set for Contempt of Congress Proceedings
Before the conversation last week, the FBI had not denied the existence of the informant file, but also hadn’t verified it either, the report notes.
In a statement after the meeting, Comer revealed – as a totally useless, arrogant compromise – Wray invited him and the ranking Democratic member of the House Oversight Committee to “review” the Biden file at the FBI premises.
The entire development seems to have solidified Comer’s decisiveness, also shared by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), to launch proceedings for holding the FBI chief in contempt for withdrawing from Congress a potentially vital document.

Christopher Wray could face contempt charges for refusing to hand over the memo that details then VP Biden’s bribery scheme.
He needs to answer to the FBI’s misconduct.https://t.co/xbFWiZu6PK
