Former California representative Devin Nunes (Rep), who once chaired the House Intelligence Committee, said on Wednesday that he would in no way trust today’s FBI after the agency refused to comply with a subpoena from the House Oversight Committee.
On May 3, James Comer, the Republican House Oversight Committee Chairman of Kentucky and Republican Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley of Iow, wrote to the FBI requesting the production of a document that reportedly describes a bribery plan involving then-Vice President Joe Biden. On Tuesday, Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said on “Fox and Friends” that if FBI Director Christopher Wray didn’t turn over a document that has been subpoenaed, a contempt of Congress charge would be an option. The FBI still has not reviewed the document, even after Comer phoned Wray on Wednesday.
Nunes said Comer should look at what transpired in ’17, ’18, ’19, and ’20 with the entire Russia fake dossier, the Durham investigation, and everything that was revealed. The FBI obstructed at every turn.
According to Nunes, there is no way Wray should be able to get away with what he got away with in 2017 and 2018, and again in 2019 and 2020, and again in 2021 and 22.”
To put it mildly, “they are hopelessly corrupt.”
Comer and Senate Judiciary Ranking Member Chuck Grassley wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland in early May, stating their belief that the FBI file offers a detailed explanation of how Biden family money schemes were carried out. It was also reported at the time by Republicans that the file contained descriptions of a criminal conspiracy with then-Vice President Biden and a foreigner, which involved an exchange of money for shaping policy.
After the Comer phone call to Wray, Comer said Wray did not commit to turning over any documents. Comer says Wray will face contempt of congress charges.
