The FBI and Wray (per se) have refused to turn over an FBI report of a witness describing a bribery scheme involving pedojoe. Wray has not said the report doesn't exist, he isn't saying anything at all. So now we have DOJ, Treasury, FBI and the IC refusing to turn over requested information in this case. I'd get excited, but it's a routine if the defendant is a dim.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) threatened to bring contempt charges against FBI Director Christopher Wray if he fails to furnish a key document Tuesday.
Republicans led by Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) have long pursued a document they believe details information about an alleged exchange of money between President Joe Biden and a foreign national. Comer subpoenaed Wray roughly a month ago for the file and gave him until Tuesday as a deadline.
"If he misses the deadline today, I am prepared to move contempt charges in Congress against him. We have jurisdiction over this. He can send us that document. We have the right to look at that," McCarthy told Fox and Friends.
Comer has also threatened contempt proceedings if Wray fails to produce the file. In response to the subpoena, the FBI delivered a letter outlining background information on the situation and cited concerns that there were “programmatic issues related to confidential human source reporting,” according to Comer.
The GOP was tipped off to the existence of the FD-1023 form by a whistleblower who alleged an informant flagged those concerns, according to Republicans. Comer has publicly admitted that so far, his panel "can't track down the informant," making the file critical to the panel's inquiry into the matter.
Comer has long accused the Biden family of engaging in influence-peddling schemes abroad. White House Counsel's Office spokesman Ian Sams has previously countered that Comer has consistently "been promising then failing to deliver" a smoking gun against Biden.
Earlier this month, Comer unveiled a report featuring allegations that nine Biden family members accrued money from foreign countries such as China and Romania. More specifically, he alleged that the Biden family and their associates received over "$10 million" from companies belonging to foreign nationals, including while Joe Biden served as vice president.
