The Federal Bureau of Investigations defied a legally binding subpoena issued by Congress requiring it turn over an informant file alleging Joe Biden took bribes as Vice President.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) issued the subpoena last week requiring the FBI hand over the file by Wednesday, May 10.
Instead of turning over the file, the FBI responded with a letter contending it will continue to withhold it from Congress to protect “confidential human sources.”
“Information from confidential human sources is unverified and, by definition, incomplete,” wrote FBI acting assistant director for congressional affairs Christopher Dunham.
“As is clear from the name itself, confidentiality is definitional to the FBI’s Confidential Human Source program,” Dunham wrote. “Confidential human sources often provide information to the FBI at great risk to themselves and their loved ones. The information they provide also can create significant risks to others who may be referenced in their reporting.”
“We…hope this helps you understand that keeping this kind of source information free from the perception or reality of improper influence — and preventing the redirection of this information for non-law enforcement or non-intelligence uses — is necessary for the FBI’s effective execution of our law enforcement and national security responsibilities,” he added.
Rep. Comer blasted the FBI for stonewalling on the file.
“It’s clear from the FBI’s response that the unclassified record the Oversight Committee subpoenaed exists, but they are refusing to provide it to the Committee,” Comer told the New York Post.
“We’ve asked the FBI to not only provide this record, but to also inform us what it did to investigate these allegations,” he added. “The FBI has failed to do both. The FBI’s position is ‘trust, but you aren’t allowed to verify.’ That is unacceptable. We plan to follow up with the FBI and expect compliance with the subpoena.”
This comes after the House Oversight Committee revealed a series of bank statements showing how the Biden family received $10 million in payments from foreign nationals’ companies while Joe Biden was Vice President.
“Biden family members and business associates created a web of over 20 companies—most were limited liability companies formed during Joe Biden’s vice presidency,” reads a memorandum.
“Bank records show the Biden family, their business associates, and their companies received over $10 million from foreign nationals’ companies. The Committee has identified payments to Biden family members from foreign companies while Joe Biden served as Vice President and after he left public office.”
