Source: The FBI Informed Alleged Prosecutor David Weiss That It Had Already Verified Many of the Bribery Claims Reported by the CHS



The details confirmed are not the specific allegations of bribery the CHS reported. Rather, the details concern the underlying facts, like the CHS being where he said he was, and in contact with the people he said he had spoken to.

The FBI found that, given that everything that could be fact-checked turned out to be genuine, the claims bore "indicia of credibility" and "merited further investigation."

Margot Cleveland in The Federalist:

When the Pittsburgh FBI office briefed the Delaware U.S. attorney's office on evidence implicating Hunter and Joe Biden in a bribery scheme, the agents also told the Delaware team they had already corroborated several aspects of the confidential human source's claims, an individual familiar with the briefing told The Federalist.

On Thursday, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, released the FD-1023 summary of a confidential human source's reporting that the Ukrainian oil and gas company Burisma paid Hunter and Joe Biden each $5 million in bribes so the then-Vice President would "protect" Burisma "from all kinds of problems." Those bribes were in addition to the more than $4 million in total paid to Hunter Biden and his business partner Devon Archer for sitting on Burisma's board of directors.

The Federalist has now learned that the Pittsburgh FBI office had corroborated several details contained in the FD-1023 as part of the intake process that former Attorney General William Barr established before the election under the leadership of the Western District of Pennsylvania's then-U.S. Attorney Scott Brady. Significantly, in briefing the Delaware U.S. attorney on the results of their office's screening of evidence related to Ukraine, the Pittsburgh FBI agents told the Delaware office they had corroborated multiple facts included in the FD-1023, an individual with knowledge of the briefing told The Federalist.


As The Federalist previously reported, during their briefing of the Delaware U.S. attorney's office, the Pittsburgh FBI agents said the FD-1023 bore indicia of credibility and that it merited further investigation. The person familiar with that briefing now confirms the agents also informed the Delaware office that the Pittsburgh FBI had corroborated the CHS's presence in the various cities at the times claimed.


That the Pittsburgh FBI office not only provided the Delaware office with a summary of the damning FD-1023 and its conclusion that it bore indicia of credibility but also identified several pieces of corroborating evidence is huge because, to date, it appears the Delaware office did nothing to investigate the allegations contained in the FD-1023.


[N]ot only did the Delaware office apparently ignore the allegations contained in the FD-1023, as well as the corroborating evidence already allegedly accumulated by the Pittsburgh FBI office, but U.S. Attorney David Weiss's office allegedly secreted the very existence of the FD-1023 from the whistleblowers. Both IRS whistleblowers testified last week that they did not even learn of the existence of the FD-1023 until Barr publicly confirmed he had sent the information to Delaware for further investigation.

Delaware Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf also excluded the IRS agents working the Hunter Biden investigation from the meeting at which the Pittsburgh FBI agents briefed the office on the FD-1023 and the corroborating evidence they had already uncovered. The IRS whistleblowers further testified that portions of Hunter Biden's laptop were withheld from them and they were explicitly prohibited from taking any investigative steps connected to Joe Biden -- or questioning anyone by using Joe Biden's name, "Dad," or "the Big Guy."

Read the whole thing.

One of Hunter Biden's "business partners" is ready to testify to Congress that Joe Biden spoke with Hunter's foreign paymasters over 200 times.

President (sic) Joe Biden vehemently denied ever talking business with his son, "or with anyone else" in the run-up to the 2020 election. In fact, Biden even fat-shamed an Iowa voter who approached the subject during the Democratic primaries. On the debate stage with Donald Trump, the former vice president peddled conspiracies of Russian interference when emails from Hunter Biden's laptop revealed otherwise.

On Sunday night, the New York Post reported on anticipated testimony from Hunter Biden's former business partner, Devon Archer. The 48-year-old who went golfing with the Bidens in 2014 is expected to tell the House Oversight Committee how Hunter Biden put his father in contact with foreign businessmen and potential investors at least 24 times. According to the Post, such meetings were either in person or by speakerphone, with Hunter Biden often dialing in Joe.

Beyond those meetings, there are more than 180 other episodes where the president interacted with his son's business partners, contrary to his campaign claims of "absolute" separation.

In anticipation of that testimony and contradiction of Biden's long-maintained lies, Karine Jean-Pierre has tactically shifted the White House's position on whether or not Joe Biden ever spoke to Hunter about his "businesses," or spoke to his "business" partners. Whereas the previous line was that Joe Biden never, ever spoke to Hunter about "business" or spoke to his "business" partners at all, now she will only say that Joe Biden was not "in business with" Hunter Biden.

"I've been asked this question a million times. The answer is not going to change. The answer remains the same," Jean-Pierre claimed. Joe Biden was "never in business with his son."

Yet, her answer has changed. Because that hasn't been her answer. Her answer previously was that he never spoke to his son about his business dealings, not that he was "never in business with his son." Even when she was asked by Fox's Peter Doocy if that was true, then why is there audio of Joe Biden doing exactly that, she still repeated she stood by her comment that Biden had never spoken to his son.
