House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) has subpoenaed the FBI for records relating to an alleged criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden. The FBI-generated FD-1023 form reportedly details an arrangement in which Joe Biden allegedly exchanged money for policy decisions with a foreign national. Comer issued a subpoena on Wednesday following legally protected disclosures to Sen. Chuck Grassley’s (R-IA) office.
According to reports, elements of a potential bribery scheme involving Joe Biden and his family members’ overseas business interests have been out in the open for years. Other reports from earlier this year stated that there was evidence supporting the impeachment of President Biden for bribery.
Bribery is one of the many crimes mentioned in the Constitution as impeachable offenses. Joe Biden could actually be impeached retroactively. How you might ask? Well his own party, the Democrats, set a precedent for this during their failed second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in 2021. Trump was out of office before he was impeached a second time.
Chairman Comer has requested the FBI provide all records relating to the alleged scheme and will hold a hearing on this matter. In a joint letter addressed to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray, Comer and Grassley requested a briefing on the matter and expressed their concerns.
As per the subpoena obtained, the FBI is requested to provide the requested records by May 17. It remains to be seen how the FBI will respond to this subpoena and if any action will be taken regarding the allegations against President Biden.
This situation has raised questions regarding the ethics of political leaders and their business dealings. The American people have the right to know if their leaders are engaging in illegal activities and should expect transparency from their elected officials. More on this story as it develops.
