Grassley: Source Behind Bribery Accusation of Biden Is "Highly Credible" and Has Been Used by FBI In the Past

So -- completely unlike the source for the "Steele Dossier," which the FBI infamously launched a full investigation into.


The individual behind the information that then-Vice President Joe Biden was involved in a criminal bribery scheme with a foreign national is a "highly credible" FBI confidential human source who has been used by the bureau in multiple investigative matters dating back to the Obama administration, Fox News Digital has learned.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer and GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley were approached by a whistleblower alleging that the FBI was in possession of a document -- an FD-1023 form, dated June 30, 2020 -- which explicitly detailed information provided by a confidential human source alleging Biden, while serving as vice president, was involved in a $5 million criminal bribery scheme with a foreign national in exchange for influence over policy decisions.


A source familiar told Fox News Digital on Friday that the confidential human source who provided the Biden information to the FBI was a "pre-existing" FBI source who has been used in multiple investigative matters separate from the Biden information.

The source told Fox News Digital that the confidential human source was used by the FBI for "at least several years" before the generation of the June 2020 FD-1023 form detailing the Biden allegations.

The source also told Fox News Digital that the confidential human source has been "consistently reviewed by the FBI" and has been "found to be highly credible."


The source said the individual participated in investigative matters during the Obama administration.

The FBI did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital's request for comment.

From Margot Cleveland at the Federalist: Grassley says that he's less interested in the actual document than in the FBI's corrupt burial of it.

Why did the FBI launch a full investigation into the Pee Pee Dossier, and yet bury this one about Biden?

Grassley suggests it's just because the FBI is a corrupt institution.

The confidential human source (CHS) behind the detailed allegations that then-Vice President Joe Biden agreed to accept money from a foreign national to affect policy decisions was reportedly "highly credible" and used by the FBI in multiple criminal investigations dating back to the Obama administration. Friday's exclusive by Fox News provides further insight into Sen. Chuck Grassley's focus on the FBI -- as opposed to the Biden family -- as the primary scandal in play.

"We aren't interested in whether or not the accusations against [then]-Vice President Biden are accurate," Grassley said during an interview last week discussing FBI Director Christopher Wray's refusal to comply with the congressional subpoena issued for the FD-1023 form. That form, dated June 30, 2020, included detailed information from a CHS to the FBI regarding an agreement by now-President Biden to deliver preferred foreign policy positions for a $5 million payment.

Um, I'd like you to be a little interested in that.

Now, for full context, Congress does not have the full power to investigate crimes. They can only investigate crimes if doing so furthers a legislative goal, or their oversight power over certain executive agencies.

So he may be anticipating the Criminal Wray's next line of bullsh!t that he can't turn over the document because Congress just doesn't have the investigatory right to see it. He's establishing that Congress certainly has oversight power over the FBI.

After Grassley revealed he had already seen the FD-1023, Fox News' Bill Hemmer queried: "How damning is this document to the sitting U.S. president?"

"I don't know," responded Grassley, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He stressed that while "there's accusations" in the FBI report, the congressional oversight committees' concern is whether "the FBI does its job." "That's what we want to know," he continued.

Friday's revelation that the CHS was "highly credible" and had served as a source in multiple prior criminal investigations -- including ones run under the Obama-Biden administration -- proves Grassley is properly focused on the FBI.

Yes, the CHS's allegations offer more evidence of a Biden family pay-to-play scandal, and unraveling any criminal conduct by the Biden family remains important. But more significant to the future of our country is uncovering government actors responsible for violating the rule of law: America can survive select injustices, but it cannot withstand a corrupt bureaucracy that obstructs justice and interferes in elections.

Yet that is precisely what occurred, according to the whistleblower. He claimed that "in August 2020, FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten opened an assessment which was used by a FBI Headquarters' team to improperly discredit negative Hunter Biden information as disinformation and caused investigative activity to cease." The whistleblower further alleged that the FBI HQ team that handled the Auten assessment, after concluding the reporting was disinformation, placed the information in a restricted access sub-file that only the particular agents who uncovered the CHS's information could access.

Now knowing the CHS behind the FD-1023 was not just "trusted," as Grassley had previously indicated, but "highly credible," and relied upon in multiple criminal cases dating back to the last time Biden worked for the executive branch, makes the whistleblower's accusations even more damning because those additional facts mean the agents had reason to believe the buried accusations were true.

Not only does this evidence suggest FBI headquarters obstructed justice, but the date of the CHS's report indicates those responsible for misbranding the intel as disinformation sought to interfere in the 2020 election.

NARA -- the records-keeping bureaucrats who worked hard to get the FBI to raid Trump's home over alleged classified papers -- is refusing to turn over emails between Hunter Biden and Joe Biden's staff, despite being demanded via a proper Congressional subpoena.

I guess these firebreathing leftwinger pencil-necks get to decide what's secret.

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) refuses to hand over requested communications between Hunter Biden and then-Vice President Joe Biden's staff.

Just The News reports that the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by America First Legal (AFL) has been rejected by NARA, which is claiming an exemption that allegedly includes communications between the president and his advisors, as well as communications between advisors.

On Wednesday, AFL released the emails that it had received from NARA, which were heavily-redacted. Despite handing over some emails, NARA confirmed the existence of additional communications that it refused to release.

One of the points of interest in AFL's request is an email from Hunter Biden's business partner at the time, Eric Schwerin, sent to the Office of the Vice President (OVP), concerning an alleged "China Lunch" that took place ahead of an official visit from Chinese President Hu Jintao in 2011. NARA claimed that releasing this particular email "would disclose confidential advice between the President and his advisors, or between such advisors."

Emails found on the controversial laptop that once belonged to Hunter Biden had already confirmed a "China Lunch," as this was the subject line of multiple emails that were exchanged between the younger Biden, Schwerin, and OVP staffer Michele Smith. The laptop communications suggested that the conversation between Hunter and Schwerin focused on who should be invited to a state event with then-Vice President Biden, with Schwerin subsequently giving Hunter's suggestions to Smith.

NARA's refusal comes as congressional Republicans have used their new majority in the House of Representatives to investigate the Biden family over allegations of corruption, influence-peddling, and abuse of power both during his vice presidency and since he took office as president in 2021.

Hunter Biden's lawyers -- who's paying for them, by the way? -- are using a court decision which Joe Biden has attacked as an argument for why he shouldn't be prosecuted for lying on his federal gun forms.

A landmark Second Amendment Supreme Court ruling that President Joe Biden called "an affront to common sense and the Constitution" has become an element in his son's legal defense, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

After the Supreme Court struck down New York state's concealed carry law in its June 2022 New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen ruling, the president said he was "deeply disappointed" and vowed to" protect Americans from gun violence." Yet his son's lawyers cited the same decision in an effort to persuade Justice Department prosecutors that a prosecution against him for one allegation--lying on a federal firearms application--would be found to be moot, two people briefed on the matter told The New York Times.

Hunter Biden's lawyers point to pending appeals court cases that use the Bruen decision to challenge aspects of the federal firearms background check system, the NYT reported.


Meanwhile, the entire Hunter Biden laptop -- minus genitals and credit card numbers -- is being posted online.

He says that Hallie Biden -- Beau's widow, who had an affair with Hunter, and possibly began that affair before Beau died -- herself was a crack addict for years.



What a shock: Wray didn't hand over the document accusing Biden of running a bribery operation.
