The revelations regarding the confidential human source (CHS) behind the allegations against then-Vice President Joe Biden have shed further light on the primary scandal at play, according to a recent exclusive report by Fox News. The CHS, described as “highly credible” and previously utilized by the FBI in multiple criminal investigations during the Obama administration, provided detailed information suggesting that Biden agreed to accept money from a foreign national to influence policy decisions. Senator Chuck Grassley, who has been focusing on the FBI’s actions rather than the Biden family, emphasized that the concern lies in ensuring the FBI carries out its duties and upholds the rule of law.
While the CHS’s allegations do provide additional evidence of a potential Biden family pay-to-play scandal, the focus must remain on holding government actors accountable for any violations of the law. Grassley believes that exposing a corrupt bureaucracy that obstructs justice and interferes in elections is of greater significance to the future of the country. The whistleblower claimed that in August 2020, FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten opened an assessment that was used to discredit negative information about Hunter Biden. The whistleblower further alleged that the FBI headquarters team, after deeming the information as disinformation, restricted access to it, hindering further investigation.
The fact that the CHS behind the FD-1023 form was not only trusted but also highly credible and had been relied upon in prior criminal cases dating back to Biden’s time in the Obama administration adds weight to the whistleblower’s accusations. It suggests that those responsible for burying the allegations had reason to believe they were true. Moreover, the timing of the CHS’s report, dated June 30, 2020, indicates potential interference in the 2020 election, raising concerns about the FBI’s conduct.
In contrast to the swift action taken by the FBI when receiving a vague tip regarding the Trump campaign, the bureau seemingly disregarded verified and verifiable information from a highly credible source when it came to the Biden allegations. This evidence underscores the FBI’s political bias and its improper handling of evidence to protect the Democratic candidate for president. Grassley is highlighting the need for a change in the FBI’s culture to address ongoing political bias and ensure accountability. However, FBI Director Christopher Wray’s resistance to the subpoena suggests a challenging road ahead for Grassley and congressional oversight committees seeking the truth.
