The House Oversight Committee has subpoenaed the FBI for a file that a whistleblower claims links Joe Biden to a “criminal scheme” featuring “money for policy decisions.”

Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) and Senate Budget Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday.
The letter claims a whistleblower has informed lawmakers that the FBI is in possession of a “form that describes an alleged criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions. It has been alleged that the document includes a precise description of how the alleged criminal scheme was employed as well as its purpose.”
“Based on the alleged specificity within the document, it would appear that the DOJ and the FBI have enough information to determine 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 signifigant public interest in assessing the FBI's response to this information, as well as growing concern about the DOJ and the FBl's track record of allowing political bias to infect their decision-making process, necessitate exacting congressional oversight.
The DOJ and the FBI appear to have valuable, verifiable information that you have failed to disclose to the American people. Therefore, Congress will proceed to conduct an independent and objective review of this matter, free from those agencies' influence.”
Both Grassley and Comer are involved on committees investigating Biden family business dealings.
"Transparency brings accountability," the letter concluded.
I believe the FBI possesses an unclassified internal document that includes very serious & detailed allegations implicating the current President of the United States. What we don’t know is what, if anything, the FBI has done to verify these claims or investigate further— Chuck Grassley (@ChuckGrassley) May 3, 2023
Fox News reports the FBI has confirmed it has received the letter, adding, "We don’t have any additional comment."
