Whistleblower allegations have surfaced, claiming the FBI and the Justice Department hold a document that implicates then-Vice President Joe Biden in a criminal scheme involving a foreign national and the exchange of money for policy decisions, according to House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer and Sen. Chuck Grassley. Both Comer, a Republican from Kentucky, and Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, state that the whistleblower has asserted that the document precisely describes the alleged criminal scheme and its purpose. The document in question, an FBI-generated D-1023 form, is said to detail an arrangement wherein money was exchanged for policy decisions. Comer has issued a subpoena in response to the legally protected disclosures provided to Grassley’s office.
Grassley has voiced concerns over the severity of the allegations, which implicate the current President of the United States in criminal activity. He has questioned what the FBI has done, if anything, to verify the claims or investigate further. Citing the FBI’s tendency to bungle politically charged investigations, Grassley has called for close congressional oversight. Adding to the concerns, Comer has pointed to ‘concerns that then-Vice President Biden allegedly engaged in a bribery scheme with a foreign national’.
Nothing to see here
Just a new Congressional letter to the FBI & DOJ accusing them of covering up a “pay for play” criminal scheme where then-VP Biden took money from a foreign national in exchange for policy decisions
Only question now is was it China or Ukraine? pic.twitter.com/pkfdY29jHt

Comer has emphasized the need for the American people to know if President Biden compromised the United States in order to make money for himself. Both Comer and Grassley are committed to seeking the truth and ensuring accountability for the American people in light of these allegations. The pair has informed FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland of the ‘legally protected and highly credible unclassified whistleblower disclosures’ on Wednesday.
According to Comer and Grassley, the DOJ and the FBI are in possession of an unclassified D-1023 form detailing an alleged criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions. The form is said to contain a precise description of how the alleged criminal scheme was employed and its purpose, as per the whistleblower’s allegations.
Based on the alleged specificity of the document, Comer and Grassley believe that the DOJ and the FBI have sufficient information to ascertain the truth and accuracy of the information contained within it. However, it remains unclear what steps, if any, were taken to investigate the matter. The lawmakers argue that the significant public interest in assessing the FBI’s response to this information, as well as growing concerns about political bias influencing the DOJ and FBI’s decision-making process, necessitate exacting congressional oversight.
Comer and Grassley have accused the DOJ and the FBI of possessing valuable, verifiable information that they have failed to disclose to the American people. Accordingly, they have declared that Congress will conduct an independent and objective review of this matter, free from the influence of the two agencies. They stress the importance of transparency in achieving accountability.
Why is the DOJ and FBI sitting on a document detailing VP Biden making a deal with a foreign national to benefit the foreign national in exchange for money. What I keep saying all along. It is protecting Barack Obama. This went down in his administration.

The House Oversight Committee, led by Comer, has been investigating the foreign business dealings of Hunter Biden, the involvement of the Biden family in these dealings, and whether President Biden engaged in them. Comer has cautioned that Hunter Biden’s business ventures with individuals in China, Ukraine, and elsewhere might pose a national security risk.
In the Senate, Grassley has been probing Hunter Biden’s business dealings and any alleged involvement by Joe Biden since 2019. The White House has stood by the claim that the President never discussed his son’s business dealings with him and was never involved himself. Moreover, officials assert that the President has never discussed investigations into his family members with the Justice Department.
Despite these claims from the White House, records have revealed that over a dozen of Hunter Biden’s business associates visited the Obama White House while Joe Biden was serving as Vice President. It is important to note that Hunter Biden has been under federal investigation since 2018.
The federal investigation into Hunter Biden’s ‘tax affairs’ commenced as a result of discovering suspicious activity reports (SARs) pertaining to funds from ‘China and other foreign nations’. These latest whistleblower allegations serve to further embroil the Biden family in controversies related to their interactions with foreign entities.
The concerns raised by Comer and Grassley regarding the potential criminal behavior of then-Vice President Joe Biden are not without merit. If the allegations prove true and President Biden participated in dubious dealings for personal gain, the consequences for the United States could be severe.
It is crucial for the American people to have confidence in their leaders and know that their government is upholding the law and acting in their best interests. Transparency and objectivity are key to facilitating this trust; hence, Comer and Grassley’s call for an independent review of the matter is both warranted and necessary.
Only through diligent, unbiased investigation will the facts about these allegations come to light. Such an investigation must not be influenced by political considerations, lest it be compromised and deemed untrustworthy. The truth is of utmost importance, especially when it pertains to the highest office in the land.
The ramifications of these allegations could potentially jeopardize trust in the democratic process and shake confidence in America’s leadership. As such, the commitment of lawmakers like Comer and Grassley to hold those in power accountable, regardless of party affiliation or political leanings, is of vital importance.
Ultimately, the pursuit of truth, justice, and accountability is paramount in upholding the principles that the United States was founded upon. These whistleblower allegations against President Biden, if true, would constitute a grave breach of trust and must be thoroughly investigated to ensure that the rule of law is maintained, and the integrity of the democratic process is preserved.
