FBI Director Wray Caves to Comer – VIDEO
In a major victory for House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer (R-KY), FBI Director Christopher Wray has completely caved on the Biden administration’s refusal to turn over a form that could show whether President Biden violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
Comer has been trying to get the FD-1023 form from the FBI. An FBI whistleblower told Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) about the form which gives information about an exchange of money for policy actions by then Vice President Joe Biden. Comer subpoenaed the form and any information on what action they had done to investigate the allegations on it.
The FBI did not meet the first deadline of May 10 and gave a response indicating they thought this was just the start of discussions. Then they missed a May 30 adjusted deadline. Comer then warned FBI Director Christiopher Wray he would be filing contempt charges.
This week Wray, Comer, and Grassley had a phone call and the FBI director offered to have them come to FBI headquarters to view the document. But Comer did not accept anything but full compliance with his subpoena. He said unless they turned the document over to Congress they weren’t in compliance with his subpoena, so he would be proceeding with the contempt proceedings.
Wray seems to have simply caved. FBI officials wrote: “Chairman Comer will receive a briefing from the FBI and review the document on Monday,” his committee told Just the News in a statement. “Chairman Comer has been clear that anything short of producing the FD-1023 form to the House Oversight Committee is not compliance with his subpoena. This unclassified record contains pages of details that need to be investigated further by the House Oversight Committee.”
With all the stalling that went on about turning it over, plus all the spinning about the nature of the form, that further makes it sounds like it’s going to be big.
Just hit the wires.
