A whistleblower who reportedly provided Republicans with evidence alleging Joe Biden was involved in corrupt ‘pay-for-play’ schemes as vice president has been frequently utilized by the FBI since the Obama administration and is regarded as “highly credible.”
According to Fox News, the individual has claimed that the former vice president “was involved in a criminal bribery scheme with a foreign national” and is a “FBI confidential human source…used by the bureau in multiple investigations dating back to” Barack Obama’s two terms in office.
The outlet also reported that House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Kentucky) and Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) were recently contacted by a whistleblower who claimed the FBI possessed an FD-1023 form dated June 30, 2020, which allegedly contains explicit information provided by a confidential human source.
According to the source, the document details allegations that Biden was involved in a $5 million criminal bribery conspiracy during his tenure as vice president. According to Fox News, the conspiracy allegedly involved a foreign national and aimed to influence policy decisions.
A source with knowledge of the situation told Fox News Digital on Friday that the confidential human source who provided the information about Biden to the FBI is a “pre-existing” FBI source who has been utilized in numerous investigations unrelated to the Biden information.
The source also revealed that the FBI has utilized the confidential human source for “at least several years” prior to the creation of the June 2020 FD-1023 form detailing the Biden allegations.
Fox was also informed by the source that the confidential human source was “consistently reviewed by the FBI” and has always been “found to be extremely credible,” as well as having participated in multiple investigations conducted during the Obama administration.
“We know the FBI has very serious allegations against then-Vice President Biden. The question is, what did they do with it? Did they investigate the leads or sweep it under the rug?” said a spokesman for Grassley in an interview with Fox News.
“This is exactly why we need transparency into the document and what the FBI did with it? That’s what Sen. Grassley has sought from the start,” the spokesman added.
“We are not out to get the FBI. We’re out to change the culture of the FBI at headquarters,” Grassley said in a recent interview, in reference to various and mounting instances of political bias in the FBI’s investigations, including the email scandal involving Hillary Clinton outlined by special counsel John Durham in his recent report.
Fox News noted additionally:
According to the whistleblower, the FD-1023 form provides “a precise description of how the alleged criminal scheme was employed as well as its purpose” and describes an arrangement involving the exchange of money for policy decisions.
