Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray after he received numerous whistleblower complaints about a coverup going on in both of their agencies.
According to The Federalist:
The FBI and Department of Justice are under scrutiny for applying a double standard of justice to their political enemies and prematurely closing investigations — specifically into Hunter Biden — that could yield information that would hurt their preferred political outcomes.
In a scathing letter addressed to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray on Monday, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley detailed how partisanship has long tainted how the FBI and DOJ conduct their investigations.
“Attorney General Garland and Director Wray, simply put, based on the allegations that I’ve received from numerous whistleblowers, you have systemic and existential problems within your agencies,” Grassley said.
Relying on reports from “highly credible” whistleblowers in both government agencies, Grassley specifically explained how the FBI sought to “improperly discredit negative Hunter Biden information as disinformation and caused investigative activity to cease.”
Because of the actions of several high-ranking federal officials, Grassley said, “verified and verifiable derogatory information on Hunter Biden was falsely labeled as disinformation.”
After Grassley called on whistleblowers to come forward about corruption, they disclosed to the senator that “Thibault declined to open or approve investigations based on partisan objectives notwithstanding the existence of proper predication,” including, as Grassley noted in his most recent letter, “an avenue of additional derogatory Hunter Biden reporting.” Thibault also allegedly tried to “improperly mark the matter in FBI systems so that it could not be opened in the future.”
Grassley’s letter gives Garland and Wray until August 8th to provide records “related to derogatory information on Hunter Biden, James Biden, and their foreign business relationships” and information about the agents who acted improperly on the Biden family’s behalf.
