“This comes from credible and unclassified whistleblower disclosures of this possible criminal activity when Biden was vice president.”
Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) made headlines early Wednesday, with his announcement that he has received “credible whistleblower information” about a possible criminal bribery scheme involving Joe Biden during his time as Vice President.
During an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, Sen. Grassley spoke out about the criminal bribery scheme involving then-Vice President Biden. He and his colleague, Rep. James Comer (R-KY), are demanding the FBI’s record on the scheme.
According to Grassley, “This comes from credible and unclassified whistleblower disclosures of this possible criminal activity when Biden was vice president.”
Grassley and Comer sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland, calling for an independent review of the matter, citing the DOJ and FBI’s failure to disclose certain information to the public.
“We want this information,” said Grassley. “The Justice Department, the FBI needs to come clean to the American people what they did with the document because we know the document exists from very credible whistleblower information that we got.”
Sen. Grassley, Rep. Comer Demand FBI Record Alleging ‘Criminal Scheme’ Involving Then-VP Biden
“The American people need to know if President Biden sold out the United States of America to make money for himself.”
Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Chuck Grassley and House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer sent letters Wednesday to the FBI, calling on the bureau to produce an unclassified record of an alleged criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden and a foreign national.
The document in question is an FBI-generated FD-1023 form that allegedly shows an arrangement exchanging money for policy decisions. Comer issued a subpoena Wednesday after “legally protected disclosures” to Grassley’s office.
“We believe the FBI possesses an unclassified internal document that includes very serious and 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. The FBI’s recent history of botching politically charged investigations demands close congressional oversight,” Grassley said in a statement.
In his own statement, Comer said that the “information provided by a whistleblower raises concerns that then-Vice President Biden allegedly engaged in a bribery scheme with a foreign national.”
“The American people need to know if President Biden sold out the United States of America to make money for himself. Senator Grassley and I will seek the truth to ensure accountability for the American people,” Comer continued.

‘The View’ to Continue Without Writers: ‘Gonna Hear How It Would Be When It’s Not Slicked Up’
The Writers Guild of America officially went on strike on Tuesday
Though the Writers Guild of America is now officially on strike, “The View” is one of the few talk shows that will continue for the time being.
At the top of Tuesday morning’s show, moderator Whoopi Goldberg addressed the situation, saying that the shows audiences will get for the foreseeable future will not be as polished as usual.
“So, you know how we’re always talking about how we’re very different than most other shows? Well, as you know, there is a writer’s strike on, and so we don’t have writers,” Whoopi said. “So you’re gonna hear how it would be when it’s not, you know, slicked up.”
Host Joy Behar then clarified that “we don’t have writers today,” not that the talk show never has writers. And, as the show progressed, it was indeed less polished.
Where Whoopi normally has a pre-written segue to kick off each new Hot Topic, she simply improvised as she went. Between the first segment and the second, the host actually turned to “The View” executive producer Brian Teta to ask what the next topic of discussion was.
The Writers Guild of America officially went on strike Tuesday, marking the entertainment industry’s first strike in 15 years, after the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers said it had not reached a deal with the WGA ahead of the midnight deadline.
