(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – The Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer, attacked the FBI for refusing to hand over to Congress a non-classified document claiming President Joe Biden was involved in a corruption scheme.

As head of the Oversight and Accountability Committee at the US House of Representatives, Rep. James Comer of Kentucky subpoenaed the document from the federal agency on May 3, with May 10 as the deadline for producing it.
The paper in question is an FD-1023 document by an FBI informant claiming that Biden was involved in bribery during his time as Barack Obama’s vice president from 2009 – 2017.
More specifically, the informant alleged a foreign adversary of the US paid the then-vice president money in exchange for specific policy decisions.
“They don’t respect anyone in Congress. They’ve been able to get away with this for a long time. The media continues to turn a blind eye,” Comer said regarding the FBI, as cited by Fox News and Newsmax.
“The Senate Republicans continue to fund the FBI. Why would you change your business model when you’re getting everything you want?” he asked further.
The FBI has refused to reveal why the subpoenaed document was kept from Congress and the American public.
“An FD-1023 form is used by FBI agents to record unverified reporting by a confidential human source. Documenting the information does not validate it, establish its credibility, or weigh it against other information verified by the FBI,” the agency told Newsmax in an email.
Its emailed statement reiterated a letter the agency sent to House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer as it refused to provide the requested document.
“Revealing unverified or possibly incomplete information could harm investigations, prejudice prosecutions or judicial proceedings, unfairly violate privacy or reputations, create misimpressions in the public, or potentially identify individuals who provide information to law enforcement, placing their physical safety at risk,” the FBI wrote.
“Information from confidential human sources and members of the public is critical to the work of the FBI and we are also committed to protecting the confidentiality of anyone who comes forward,” the federal agency added.
Earlier, on Sunday, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told Fox News in an interview that he had spoken with FBI Director Christopher Wray on Friday.
As a result, he was confident the bureau would supply the document to Congress.
“I explained to the director that we will do everything in our power, and we have the jurisdiction over the FBI, and we have the right to see this document. I believe after this call, we will get this document,” McCarthy declared.
Comer said he had discussed with the House Speaker the option of holding Wray in contempt of Congress if the FBI wouldn’t comply with the former’s subpoena.
Rep. James Comer said the FBI still hasn't responded to a subpoena to hand over an unclassified document that details allegations of a bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden when he was vice president. https://t.co/7EZt0ce0Va
