On Monday, House Oversight Committee Chair Rep. James Comer (R-KY) warned that, if he doesn’t take possession of the FBI document alleging a bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden, media and Democrats will deny his reports and label them crazy conspiracy theories.
On Wednesday, Comer canceled Thursday’s scheduled contempt of Congress vote against FBI Director Christopher Wray, who continues to refuse to turn over the document containing the “highly-credible,” long-time FBI source’s allegations.
But, on Monday, Rep. Comer told reporters that he wouldn’t cancel the contempt of Congress vote, unless he had the document “in hand,” because that was the only way he could get the media and Democrats to admit what it reveals.
“Mr. Chair, why do you need the document in hand?” one reporter asked Comer, questioning the need to “move forward with contempt when the FBI says they are cooperating in good faith.”
Without the physical document to show to the public, media will continue to parrot the Biden Administration’s “conspiracy theory” claims and dismiss the source as unverified, Comer explained:
“Well, let’s just look at what I’ve read in a lot of the media accounts and the statements Ian Sams has made from the White House: ‘There is no merit for this,’ ‘This is crazy,’ ‘This is a conspiracy theory.’
“And, you’re just supposed to take my word? Or the FBI’s word? I’m supposed to take the FBI’s word they’re investigating this? You’re going to write the source is unverified.”
What’s more, media aren’t reporting that Biden’s accuser is a “highly-credible source that’s been with the Bureau since the Obama Administration,” Comer said.
“The revelations of the document come after Comer and Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, were approached by a whistleblower who said the FBI was in possession of a document — an FD-1023 form dated June 30, 2020 — that explicitly detailed information provided by a confidential human source who alleged that Biden, while serving as vice president, was involved in a $5 million criminal bribery scheme with a foreign national in exchange for influence over policy decisions.”
