“FBI Has Caved” Allowing House Oversight Members to See Requested Form; Comer Cancels Contempt of Congress Vote

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

The FBI finally agreed to allow House Oversight Committee members to review the unclassified whistleblower form that allegedly describes details of a $5 million bribery scheme involving Joe Biden and a foreign national.  The committee members were scheduled to vote at 9 a.m. on Thursday morning, but eleven hours before, Comer canceled the vote when the FBI responded. In a press release, the committee said,  “After weeks of refusing to even admit the FD-1023 record exists, 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.”  The document originated from an interview the FBI conducted with a “highly credible” bureau source whose intel has been used dating back to the Obama administration.
