Grassley wants to know why the FBI constantly investigates Trump and ignores verified and legit information about Hunter Biden.
Senate Judiciary Ranking Member Chuck Grassley informed FBI Director Christopher Wray that the information given to him by a bunch of whistleblowers shows an “infection” within the department.
The information has Grassley concerned about the Washington Field Office (emphasis mine):
Starting on May 31, 2022, I’ve written three letters to you regarding political bias that has infected the FBI’s Washington Field Office. Two of those letters provided specific and credible allegations based on numerous whistleblowers that have approached my office with information that one can only conclude is indicative of a deeply rooted political infection that has spread to investigative activity into former President Trump and Hunter Biden. As I’ve noted both in my public letters and public statements, the FBI approved investigative activity into Trump based in substantial part on liberal news articles and information derived from a liberal non-profit yet shut down investigative activity and sources, which included verified and verifiable information, relating to Hunter Biden. The FBI has not refuted these serious allegations. Thus far, the FBI has failed to address the concerns that I’ve raised and failed to produce the requested records. The consistent failure to respond to Congress continues to erode trust in the FBI.
Grassley reminded Wray that he told the Iowa Republican when any valid tips or information goes to a U.S. Attorney’s office or local FBI field office, “we want to make sure those tips and leads are passed to the responsible office.”
So now Grassley wants Wray to answer a few simple questions:
- How can verified and verifiable information relating to Hunter Biden’s potential criminality be shared with U.S. Attorney Weiss if it is shut down?
- How can the Hunter Biden criminal investigation be full and complete if the FBI improperly shut down verified and verifiable information and sourcing relating to potential criminal activity?
- How can Congress and the American people trust the results?
“In light of the FBI’s failure to respond to my legitimate oversight requests, please provide a comprehensive organization chart for the Washington Field Office,” wrote Grassley. “The purpose of this request is to better understand how the Washington Field Office is staffed, who is responsible for the units and squads within the office and to prepare for future congressional interviews.”
I wonder if Wray will give Grassley the information. Then again, he might have to use the FBI plane for a weekend getaway.
But this is on the long list of problems at the FBI presented to him by Congressional Republicans.
In July, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member told Wray that whistleblowers said they’re being pressured to reclassify some cases as “domestic violent extremism.” Jordan said that “the revelation that the FBI may be padding domestic terrorism data is scandalous.”
Don’t forget that Jordan said 14 more FBI whistleblowers went to the Republicans after the raid of Mar-a-Lago: “There are lots of good people in the FBI. It’s the top that is the problem. Some of these good agents are coming to us, telling us … what’s going on—the political nature now of the Justice Department … talking about the school board issue, about a whole host of issues.”DONATE
