The FBI is refusing to cooperate with the House Oversight Committee handling the Biden family criminal scheme.
The House Oversight Committee subpoenaed an FBI document that a whistleblower says describes a criminal scheme that involved then-Vice President Joe Biden relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions.
"House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., subpoenaed the FBI for the document, which is an FBI-generated FD-1023 form after a whistleblower alleged that the FBI and Justice Department were in possession of it and claimed it detailed an 'alleged criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions,'" reported Fox News.
FBI Refuses To Comply
The whistleblower said the document "includes a precise description of how the alleged criminal scheme was employed as well as its purpose."
In the subpoena, Comer gave the FBI until Wednesday at noon to comply, but instead, the bureau sent a letter saying its "confidentiality interests" and the importance of protecting sources and methods to protect U.S. national security.
"This letter responds to your subpoena, authorized on May 3, 2023, demanding the production of documents within one week. As this was your first communication with the FBI seeking this information, please know that the FBI is committed to beginning the constitutionally mandated accommodation process. The FBI is committed to working to provide the Committee information necessary for your legitimate oversight interests, while also protecting executive branch confidentiality interests and law enforcement responsibilities," the letter states.
Comer said about the response, "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."
