FBI Fails to Turn Over Document After Rep. Comer’s 2nd Request

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

During a closed-door meeting on Monday the FBI failed to hand over a document, originally requested on May 3, that allegedly details a “criminal scheme” which involved then-Vice President Joe Biden and an unnamed “foreign national.”  The request for the document was revived on Friday through a letter by House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) to FBI Director Christopher Wray.  Comer’s Friday letter read,  “The FBI’s delay in producing a single FD-1023 form is unacceptable. The Committee has already offered a reasonable accommodation to address the FBI’s stated confidentiality concerns but the FBI to date has refused to meaningfully engage in discussions about how the Committee can obtain the information that it needs. Instead, it has sought to change the subject by offering to provide the Committee with information it has not requested.”
