This week, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene warned that evidence obtained by the House Oversight Committee that allegedly reveals a political “pay-to-play” conspiracy involving President Joe Biden and his family could “destroy” his reelection campaign.
The Georgia Republican’s statement follows House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer’s (R-Kentucky) Wednesday warning that he will hold FBI Director Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress after May 30 if the FBI continues to refuse to comply with a subpoena to provide an internal document.
The document in question, known as FD-1023, was brought to the committee’s attention by a whistleblower, and according to Greene, it allegedly contains information about an exchange in which Biden allegedly accepted money from a foreign national in exchange for foreign policy decisions during his time as vice president.
“If they hand over that form, the proof is there… It will literally show, not only to our country but the world, that [Biden] abused his powers as vice president in order to make money to enrich himself to make foreign policy decisions on behalf of the United States of America. You can not do that. That is highly illegal. I think it would lead to impeachment and also destroy his presidential campaign,” Greene, who is a member of the committee, told The Daily Caller exclusively.
The FBI stated in a statement to the outlet that releasing the document could reveal the identity of the anonymous source who provided the information. In addition, the bureau stated that the document’s information has not been verified.
“The FBI’s mission is to protect the American people. Releasing confidential source information could potentially jeopardize investigations and put lives at risk. The FBI remains committed to cooperating with Congress’s oversight requests on this matter and others as we always have,” the FBI said in the statement.
“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 bureau’s statement continued.
“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. 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 FBI added.
On May 10, the Oversight Committee published a report alleging that certain Biden family members engaged in influence peddling to enrich themselves by leveraging Romanian and Chinese assets.
In addition, the report does not implicate the president himself in the alleged activities, as noted by The Daily Caller. The report presents bank records purportedly demonstrating money transfers to family members via a variety of different LLCs, according to the report.

But the committee has subpoenaed the FD-1023 document because it may tie the president to the alleged money laundering scheme and present “direct pay-to-play evidence,” Greene told the outlet. CONTINUE READING…
