Whistleblowers Detail FBI, DOJ Effort to Discredit Negative Info on Hunter Biden Starting Before 2020 Election

Whistleblowers Detail FBI, DOJ Effort to Discredit Negative Info on Hunter Biden Starting Before 2020 Election

Anyone shocked?

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) told FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland that “highly credible whistleblowers” detail efforts at the FBI and DOJ to downplay or discredit any negative information about Hunter Biden.

Hunter became a liability when Biden was the frontrunner in the Democratic primary because of his cushy position on the Burisma board when Dad was vice-president. Grassley then started a probe in August 2019 over the sale of “a sensitive U.S. technology company to the Chinese government and an investment firm run by the sons of Joe Biden and John Kerry.”

Since then, we’ve seen outstanding American citizen Hunter Biden shine in the media in videos with prostitutes while crying to Dad for money to go to drug rehab, shady deals with China, tax fraud, etc.

The effort to downplay the negative information began in 2020 before the election. It’s almost like the Biden campaign knew more information would come to light:

First, it’s been alleged that the FBI developed information in 2020 about Hunter Biden’s criminal financial and related activity. It is further alleged that in August 2020, FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten opened an assessment which was used by an FBI Headquarters (“FBI HQ”) team to improperly discredit negative Hunter Biden information as disinformation and caused investigative activity to cease. Base on allegations, verified and verifiable derogatory information on Hunter Biden was falsely labeled as disinformation.

The basis for how the FBI HQ team selected the specific information for inclusion in Auten’s assessment is unknown, but in more than one instance the focus of the FBI HQ team’s attention involved derogatory information about Hunter Biden. accordingly, the allegations provided to my office appear to indicate that there was a scheme in place among certain FBI officials to undermine derogatory information to Hunter Biden by falsely suggesting it was disinformation.

Hunter’s life fully entered the public in October 2020 when the New York Post reported a trove of information taken from his laptop he left at a computer shop.

Biden and the MSM immediately went Russia, Russia, Russia, including letters from 51 intelligence experts.

Grassley wrote:

Third, in October 2020, an avenue of additional derogatory Hunter Biden reporting was ordered closed at the discretion of ASAC [Timothy] Thibault. My office has been made aware that FBI agents responsible for this information were interviewed by the FBI HQ team in furtherance of Auten’s assessment. It’s been alleged that the FBI HQ team suggested to the FBI agents that the information was at risk of disinformation; however, according to allegations, all of the reporting was either verified or verifiable via criminal search warrants. In addition, ASAC Thibault allegedly ordered the matter closed without providing a valid reason as required by FBI guidelines. Despite the matter being closed in such a way that the investigative avenue might be opened later, it’s alleged that FBI officials, including ASAC Thibault, subsequently attempted to improperly mark the matter in FBI systems so that it could not be opened in the future.

The whistleblowers came forward after Grassley sent Garland and Wray a letter on May 31, inviting anyone with information to come forward to report “allegations of fraud, waste, abuse, and gross mismanagement by FBI and Justice Department (‘Department’) officials including, but not limited to, ASAC Thibault.”

Grassley listed many demands of Wray and Garland by Aust 8. Demands include:

The letter also singled out Justice Department official Richard Pilger, identified as the director of the Election Crimes Branch within the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section, who, along with Thibault, were alleged to be “deeply involved in the decisions to open and pursue this investigation,” an apparent reference to a probe recently opened into the Trump campaign.

Grassley told Wray and Garland “the opening memo you approved,” included media reporting citing research from a “liberal non-profit” when a full investigation of a political nature requires “a heightened factual basis.”

“If these allegations are true and accurate, the Justice Department and FBI are – and have been – institutionally corrupted to their very core to the point in which the United States Congress and the American people will have no confidence in the equal application of the law,” Grassley wrote.

The letter makes me wonder how far up the tree the plan went within the DOJ. August 2020, so it started during Trump’s administration.

I know the letter points to Pilger, but who else knew in the DOJ? Are any of them still in the DOJ?

We are in power your not. The liberal narrative for 60 years.

The 2 scumbags, Wray and Garland, will be sure to investigate who the whistle blowers are, so they can retaliate accordingly. The American Stasi doesn’t tolerate dissent from whatever the DNC says and these 2 agents are going to learn it the hard way.

Merrick Garland and Christopher Wray are jokes. Don’t depend on them for justice. I would hope that the next Republican President dissolves the FBI with the proviso that no personnel there can ever work in law enforcement for the federal government. I would do pretty much the same for DOJ.
I would be very much surprised if Hunter Biden is indicted for any serious offense.

    I had those hopes with the last Republican president, who picked Sessions, Rosenstein, Barr, and Wray. Those and listening to Fauci is IMO why the last Republican president is not the current president.

    Burn down all the FBI offices.
    Salt the remains.
    There is NO constitutional authorization for any federal law-enforcement forces whatsoever, OTHER than the Navy (foreign) and the militia (domestic).

      Use military to enforce federal law and you will become a military instead of civilian government with everything that goes with it including coups and the head of the military being the real power in the nation.

      I also prefer men like DeSantis, Trump and even a Rubio to men like Admiral Grior (sp) and Mark Milley being in charge.

        henrybowman in reply to Danny. | August 3, 2022 at 3:05 am

        I do hope you understand the difference between “military” and “militia.”
        Read again, then try again.

      No doubt your remedy for the corrupt FBI (read Stasi) is correct. There’s a reason the only federal police agency created by the Founders was the US Marshals—the enforcement and security arm of federal courts with no investigative powers except tracking bail jumpers and escaped prisoners.

      bhwms in reply to henrybowman. | July 27, 2022 at 12:53 pm

      The FBI and DoJ as they currently exist certainly need to be abolished, and the entire criminal code tossed. Rewrite from the ground up keeping federal crimes within the bounds of the Constitution (which would be very few). Reconstitute DoJ to be focused on enforcing those laws. It will be a much smaller agency, if it even needs to exist.

    Mauiobserver in reply to JackinSilverSpring. | July 26, 2022 at 3:41 pm

    And base the new DOJ and Fed law enforcement agencies in locations far from DC and not under Democrat political machine control. That way, if and when prosecutions are made for the persecution of Trump supporters and OBiden regime opponents take place, there is a far more likely chance of a real trial and punishment for violations of the law and rights of those they persecuted.

    I wish they could be called jokes, but they couldn’t be more dangerous and their competence is high they are authoritarians building a police state.

But But But We had to defend the integrity of our elections against Russian interference and the American people from “mean tweets”

Defund the FBI!

I’d be willing to place odds before the day Obama picked Joe as a running mate, that the FBI made a team to look into any allegations related to his *known* tendencies to exploit personal relationships for governmental kickbacks, and squash them. President Obama would not have brought Joe in if there were fizzing PR bombs in his file, and the FBI considered it their job to snip all those fuses and pour water on anything that smoked. Unfortunately for them, his son could start more fires and crack smoke than they could extinguish. Thankfully (for them), the media was right there with a hose all the way to the present.

Leaving snide remarks and politics to the side, it almost brings me to tears to have my faith in the American experiment extinguished.

The FBI and DOJ have completely eroded my confidence in the American political system. It’s even more sad because they aren’t supposed to be political.

The difference between how Flynn was treated* and people in the establishment is eye-opening and demoralizing.

*I bring up Flynn because his recordings with Kislyak are online. He DIDN’T discuss Russian sanctions. When Kislyak brought it up, Flynn changed the subject. It’s all there. The DOJ/FBI accused of lying. Then they used FARA violations to threaten his family. Then the judge wanted to continue the prosecution without a prosecutor. Juxtapose his treatment with that of Clinton and now the Bidens.

Never mind, I think I will have a cry.

    “The FBI and DOJ have completely eroded my confidence in the American political system. It’s even more sad because they aren’t supposed to be political.”

    Constitutionally, they aren’t even supposed to EXIST.
    Does this restore your confidence in the American political system?
    I have confidence in it de jure. De facto, I have absolutely none.
    Words on a piece of paper will never protect you against thieves and villains.

      Danny in reply to henrybowman. | July 26, 2022 at 6:07 pm

      The FBI is without doubt in disbandment territory, and the DOJ has also become rotten but is much more likely salvageable but lets say I grant DOJ is also in disbandment territory.

      What will enforce federal law if you don’t create a non-corrupt non-partisan replacement to both organizations?

      The military? Systems that use the military for law enforcement tend to suffer regular coups. Do you know of any European country that uses the military instead of cops? I’m not even going to mention that the senior leadership of the military is woke for bringing up how bad an idea that is.

      No federal law? Then why not disband the country and become 50 separate nations? Every state without exception gives more to the federal government than they get in money from the federal government so not a single state would fail to be a viable nation.

      We must clean out the federal government but put any ideas of disbanding it out of your mind. Even New Mexico (the state that is closest to being a net taker) gives 1.5 dollars per dollar it receives from the federal government.

        Several things, in no particular order….

        Some states do get back more than their taxpayers put in. That’s an aside, not relevant to the main point of individual state viability. What individuality of states would do is create greater experimentation—a good thing. Couple that with freedom to relocate and each state can see how far it can take its social programs, if they have them.

        Federal law…there’s simply far too much of it. What we need is an amendment that requires all members of government—including their governmental employees, i.e. staff—to be subject to all laws. And, critically, for those laws to be enforced at the STATE level, specifically not by the feds. That would severely curtail cronyism.

        I’d go even farther. Enact a law and break it, you get double the penalty anyone else would.

          Danny in reply to coyote. | July 27, 2022 at 10:13 am

          If there is too much federal law start with a federal law that should be changed or removed, not with disbandment of the federal government and furthermore there are no “takers”

          https://thefederalist.com/2017/11/17/red-states-tax-takers-blue-states-tax-makers/

          Not much has changed since that article was written. The “takers” stuff was just messing around with definitions from the articles

          “Even within that limited range of figures, the results are not the open-and-shut case that critics from the Left would have us believe. For one thing: no state receives more in intergovernmental transfers than its citizens and corporations pay in federal taxes. The state that gets the most back in intergovernmental transfers is a blue state, New Mexico, at 80.27 percent. Red states West Virginia and Mississippi are the only other two that get back more than half of their taxes in this form of spending (67.30 percent and 63.12 percent, respectively).”

          The left controls all means of communication so it is easy to see why a leftwing myth could be believed even by people here but the “takers” stuff was just a first step towards them starting their cold war with us.

        The problem isn’t the existence of federal laws per se, it is that federal law now operates far outside the central government’s enumerated powers. It seems every crime scene nowadays includes the FBI, ATF, and often DHS. And this doesn’t include all the petty bureaucrats with badges from myriad regulatory bureaucracies—do you know the Department of Education has its own SWAT team? Give me a break! Are there no crimes solely within local and state jurisdiction? Federal law was meant to confine itself to enumerated federal issues, not to be a smothering blanket across all of America.

          I am 100% agreed that the FBI is in disbandment territory, and think the DOJ does need a cleaning.

          What I am fully opposed to is either replacing them with the military (if you do that the military not voters rule this nation) or not replacing them at all (which would mean no federal law).

          I also promise you that voters aren’t just listening to us when we talk about problems with the current federal system, they are listening to us when we discuss what to do about it to. We are agreed on things like the FBI, and I should hope what to do about it (which will have nothing to do with anarchism or the military).

          Not only that, but we learned yesterday that the Democrats believe the Department of Education and the USDA needs the (scare quotes) “weapons of war” they are trying to ban us from owning.

        The answer to your question seems crystal clear to me, and I’m dismayed you don’t already know it.

        Section. 8.

        The Congress shall have Power …

        To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions…

        This is the ONLY approved instrumentality the Constitution provides for enforcement of federal law.

        The Militia is US — the people of the United States, in service to the sovereign states whenever not actively called up to federal service.

        What better way to prevent tyranny than by putting all enforcement power into the hands of the people you would try to tyrannize?

The odor emanating from the FBI and DOJ smells more rotten than week-old fish carcasses piled up at a fish market.

Check out our square-jawed, corrupt Dumb-o-crat partisan, Thibault, as a featured speaker at this event hosted by American University Law School, ironically on the subject of anti-corruption, among other topics. Scroll down to see his profile. Another Dumb-o-crat zealot who is as corrupt, lawless and mendacious as Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe.

Simple logic dictates that our constitution is exceedingly strong for one must have a strong constitution to stomach Hunter Biden.

Hah! The asses bray, and the caravan takes note.

Let me know when someone leaves the building in handcuffs, rather than a lucrative book deal and $3 mil a year commentary job with one of the networks not covering this story.

Bravery twoYears too late. Yeah these people are so virtuous, a.. mccarthy

I am extremely impressed by Grassley, he is also pushing back on abuses by the military.

    henrybowman in reply to Danny. | August 3, 2022 at 3:15 am

    I am impressed by the job he did getting to the bottom of Fast and Furious. Remember all the perp walks? Good times. Mister Effective.

All we hear from Biden is “Beau this and Beau that” leaving Hunter and his sister as after-thoughts ( except maybe at shower time or retrieving the 10%). Not a very functional family and definitely not role models as anyone of them. Bleaching the black sheep of the family should have started with Joe.

I used to find the IRS the most disgusting Federal agency; now it’s unquestionably the DOJ/FBI, the clear enemy of justice in the United States. #DefundFBI

Meanwhile some hack named Will Bunch of the Philadelphia Inquirer called for disbandment of the Secret Service in an editorial yesterday. Because Trump, of course.

Not a peep about the fetid piles of excrement called FBI and DOJ.
