President Joe Biden faced questioning on Thursday regarding the FBI informant document that accused him of accepting a $5 million bribe and referred to him as the “big guy.” The document, provided to Congress by the FBI, alleged that Biden received the bribe from Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky, who supposedly kept audio recordings of his conversations with the Bidens as an “insurance policy.”
When a New York Post reporter asked Biden about being referred to as the “big guy,” he responded defensively, dismissing the question as dumb. This marks the third time Biden has been questioned about the alleged bribery scheme in recent days. Earlier, he jokingly dismissed the allegation as “malarkey” and playfully asked, “Where is the money?” This has raised concerns among voters, with 52 percent believing that the Biden family received payments from foreign nationals to influence policy.
During a Judiciary Committee hearing, FBI Deputy Director Paul Abbate refused to confirm whether the FBI possesses the alleged audio tapes. While admitting that the FBI has the informant document with details of the 17 recordings, Abbate declined to provide further information. He claimed that nobody was stonewalling but did not provide clarity on the tapes’ existence.
House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, a Republican from Kentucky, spoke to Fox News about the credibility of the FBI document. He mentioned that the informant, who has received over $200,000 from the FBI and may have connections to the CIA, has been around since the Obama administration. Comer emphasized that more bank records are forthcoming and estimated that the total funds transferred to the Biden family could exceed $10 million this week, potentially reaching between $20 and $30 million.
Conservatives view Biden’s dismissive responses and the lack of clarity from the FBI as concerning. They argue that the allegations of bribery and foreign influence must be taken seriously, given the substantial amount of money involved and the credibility of the source. As investigations continue and more information comes to light, conservatives are adamant about holding the Biden family accountable and seeking the truth behind these allegations.
