As per emerging reports, a $5 million bribery scandal involving Joe Biden will shake the nation’s political landscape. An FBI informant, who is considered “highly credible” and has a track record dating back to the Obama administration, is the reported source of the allegations. The informant could expose a money-for-policy arrangement between President Biden and an unnamed foreign national.
Details of this potentially seismic scandal stem from a document generated from an FBI interview with the informant. After repeated resistance to a congressional subpoena, FBI Director Christopher Wray has consented to let Congress view the unclassified document on Monday. Nevertheless, the House Oversight Committee has said it intends to move ahead with holding the FBI Director in contempt of Congress.

The FBI source has reportedly been in the bureau’s service “at least several years” before creating the file detailing allegations against then-Vice President Biden. The informant was previously appraised as “highly credible” and was regularly reviewed by the FBI.
In pursuit of transparency, House Oversight Chair James Comer (R-KY) issued a subpoena in May to secure the document from the FBI following legally protected disclosures to the office of Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Grassley’s spokesperson posed a critical question to Fox News Digital, “We know the FBI has very serious allegations against then-Vice President Biden. The question is what did they do with it. Did they investigate the leads or sweep it under the rug?”
These new revelations could link to long-standing questions about Biden and his family members’ overseas business interests. As early as 2015, Hunter Biden’s international business dealings, especially his appointment to the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma, had raised eyebrows. However, these concerns were sidelined by the Vice President’s office and never resolved.
If the allegations stand, a retroactive impeachment for President Biden could be on the horizon, given the precedent set by Democrats during the second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in 2021.
On the other hand, the White House continues to assert that President Biden is not engaged in any foreign business transactions. It adds that he has never discussed his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings with him. Furthermore, Biden administration officials affirm that the President has not discussed investigations into family members with the Justice Department.
The White House stated last month, “Republicans in Congress have been lobbing unfounded, unproven, politically-motivated attacks against the President and his family without offering evidence for their claims or evidence of decisions influenced by anything other than U.S. interests.”
With these allegations coming to the fore, the country awaits further clarity as lawmakers are set to review the document on Monday.
