Posted on 10/08/2020 9:11:48 AM PDT by blam
The FBI is refusing to provide answers to a congressional inquiry pertaining to Hunter Bidens potentially criminal overseas business activity revealed in a Senate report last month that chronicles the Biden familys conflicts of interest abroad.
Last week, Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan, who serves as the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, demanded the federal law enforcement agency provide answers on what actions it took, if any, upon reports from the Justice Department in 2015 that the owner of the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma paid a $7 million bribe to Ukraine officials to shut down an investigation. Hunter Biden is on Burismas board despite no prior experience in the industry.
The existence of such reports from the DOJ became public in the long-anticipated findings released by a three-year Senate investigation spearheaded by Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, who lead the Finance Committee and Homeland Security Committee, respectively.
The report by Chairman Johnson and Chairman Grassley shows that the FBI has been aware of some alleged misconduct for years, wrote Jordan upon the Senate probes conclusion.
Jordan also highlighted concerns raised within the Obama State Department regarding Bidens lucrative board position with Burisma. He raked in upwards of $50,000 a month despite his lack of experience while his father, Joe Biden, served as the administrations public face of White House policy towards the Eastern European ally.
The report detailed widespread concern within the Obama-Biden Administration about Hunter Bidens role on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian company founded by Mykola Zlochevsky, Jordan wrote. The Chairmen noted that they had asked the FBI about its actions in response to these allegations, but have received no answer from you.

If you’re going to be a crook, be a good crook - with friends in high places!
LIES LIES and More LIES, CONGRESS is refusing to do their job and hold these people accountable
TITLE 2—THE CONGRESS
CHAPTER 6—CONGRESSIONAL AND COMMITTEE PROCEDURE; INVESTIGATIONS
Sec. 193. Privilege of witnesses
No witness is privileged to refuse to testify to any fact, or to produce any paper, respecting which he shall be examined by either House of Congress, or by any joint committee established by a joint or concurrent resolution of the two Houses of Congress, or by any committee of either House, upon the ground that his testimony to such fact or his production of such paper may tend to disgrace him or otherwise render him infamous.”
Simply look up Hinds Precedents, especially chapters 53 and 51, and Cannon’s Precedents, especially chapters 184-185. You’ll find numerous detailed cases of Congress asserting its power, arresting people, holding them until they agreed to answer questions, and then releasing them. Some of these people did not refuse to appear, but simply failed to satisfactorily answer questions.
They are hoping to cover it up should Biden get elected.
Of course the FBI is stonewalling. They’re trying to run out the clock until the election.
Same with the FBI ignoring Trump’s declassification order on the Russia Collusion documents. That, too, will be ignored until after the election.
Maybe Biden was kicking back favors to the crooks in the FBI..
of course they are refusing.
the FIB is above the Congress,
and the FIB is above the ELECTED PRESIDENT.
the FIB is above all courts and can LIE LIE LIE.
the FIB can imprison and burn alive the innocent.
... and get away with it.
they have HRC and CF to whom they gave their files
to sell to foreign countries.
I fully expect Hunter to leave the country to some undisclosed location, if Trump wins or looks like that Trump will win early on.
Yeah, 99% of the FBI is good, right?
BS. It’s a corrupted government department that should be scrapped.
FIRE WRAY, President Trump!!
Speaking of which: what came of the announced “national security briefing” planned for yesterday morning? I missed it and never saw reference to it after.
DC needs to be shut down. It is out of control.
When will Wray be fired. That arrogant SOB is so damn corrupt.
And did zilch................Hell, they probably facilitated it!.................
Yes the FBI is corrupt, but so is the post-17th Amendment ratification Congress.
In a better world, a Constitution-respecting Congress would impeach and remove corrupt elite bureaucrats of the constitutionally undefined FBI.
Send “Orange Man Bad” federal and state government desperate Democrats home in November!
Supporting PDJT with a new patriot Congress and state government leaders that will promise to fully support his already excellent work for MAGA and stopping SARS-CoV-2 will effectively give fast-working Trump a “third term” in office imo.
I dont see any problem with voting Republican ticket for 2020 elections.
Again, insights welcome.
Give him a couple of days to produce the documents, then fire him if he doesn’t. Wray is despicable.
I’m telling you, The FBI is a horse shit criminal organization.
Quit telling us how the vast majority of this outfit are fine upstanding lawmen and women.
Obamas illegal crap?
Frame up of The Donald?
Waco murder of how many?
Whitey Bolger let go while framing 4 innocents for murder and letting them spend decades in prison or die?
I can go on but again the FBI and its members are horse shit.
They are busy making up white supremacist conspiracy theories.
