Feds Quietly Hid Biden Files Since 2017

In a recent interview with “Just the News, No Noise,” House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer revealed that the bribery allegations made against Joe Biden were first reported to the FBI in 2017.

On Monday, Comer and Oversight Committee ranking member Jamie Raskin (D-MD) were allowed to review the FD-1023 about the informant’s allegations.

During his interview on Tuesday, Comer told Just the News that about 10 percent of the information in the version of the FD-1023 he reviewed was redacted but it was clear from the document that the allegations were first presented to the FBI in 2017 shortly after Donald Trump took office.

Comer confirmed that the document is related to a Ukrainian “business person” who allegedly sent a “substantial bribe” to Joe Biden when he was Vice President. 

According to Chairman Comer, based on the document including the footnotes, the informant first brought the bribery allegations to the FBI in 2017. The informant then raised them a second time either in 2018 or 2019, before he raised them again in the June 2020 FD-1023.

Comer told Just the News that the core allegation from the informant is that a Ukrainian businessman was going to pay the Biden family $5 million in return for a policy decision over which then-Vice President Biden had influence.

Comer also said that he has reason to believe that the FBI never investigated the allegations properly.

On Tuesday, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) revealed that the FBI informant who provided the intelligence on the bribery scheme had been deemed such a valuable and credible source that over the years, the FBI paid him $200,000.

While speaking from the Senate floor on Tuesday, Grassley blasted the media and the “Biden FBI” for “misleadingly” claiming that the FD-1023 was information supplied by former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Grassley noted that this highly-paid source had been operating “even during the Obama administration,” and the FBI has not contradicted his findings.
