Kevin McCarthy Closing In on Hunter and Joe with FBI Files – Watch
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said on Tuesday that he expects the FBI to share its file on Hunter Biden with Congress, following reports that the FBI has been investigating the president’s son for potential corruption.
And now the Republican-led House may have reached a breakthrough in its standoff with the FBI over a file believed to contain bribery allegations concerning President Joe Biden. McCarthy revealed on Sunday that he spoke with Director Christopher Wray about the FBI failing to comply with a subpoena for information and pushed for compliance.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) issued a subpoena with a May 10 deadline seeking the information.
“It’s clear from the FBI’s response that the unclassified record the Oversight Committee subpoenaed exists, but they are refusing to provide it to the Committee,” Comer said. “We’ve asked the FBI to not only provide this record, but to also inform us what it did to investigate these allegations. The FBI has failed to do both.”
“I explained to the director that we will do everything in our power, and we have jurisdiction over the FBI, that we have the right to see this document,” McCarthy said during an appearance on Fox News. “I believe after this call we will get this document.”
In its response to the May deadline, an FBI official declined to acknowledge the existence of the record while warning against the release of “unverified or incomplete” information that could “harm investigations, prejudice prosecutions or judicial proceedings, unfairly violate privacy or reputational interests, or create misimpressions in the public.”
The American people deserve to know the truth about Hunter Biden’s business dealings, and the truth about President Joe Biden’s alleged bribery scheme. Kevin McCarthy is right to demand that the FBI release its file on the president’s son.
