Republican leaders have been threatening to hit FBI Director Christopher Wray with a contempt of Congress charge over his refusal to turn over a document they say proves Joe Biden is corrupt.

So on Wednesday, they made good on their promise.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) introduced a resolution of contempt for Wray, and on Thursday, Republicans will consider will consider it during a business meeting, according to a press release from the committee.

“Americans have lost trust in the FBI’s ability to enforce the law impartially and demand answers, transparency, and accountability,” Comer said. “The Oversight Committee must follow the facts for the American people and ensure the federal government is held accountable.”

In a statement, the FBI said an “escalation to a contempt vote under these circumstances is unwarranted” as it “demonstrated” a commitment to accommodate the Oversight Committee’s request while also taking precautions “often employed in response to congressional requests and in court proceedings to protect important concerns, such as the physical safety of sources and the integrity of investigations.”

The document demanded by Comer is an FBI FD-1023 form, commonly utilized to document details provided by a confidential human source. Specifically, this form refers to a date of “June 30, 2020” and a monetary amount of “five million.”

The references are related to an alleged scheme involving a foreign national offering money to Biden in exchange for specific actions during his tenure as vice president.

According to Comer, the document in question is related to Ukraine, and it encompasses allegations that align with a recurring pattern observed in other countries like Romania.

These allegations involve suspicious financial transactions amounting to millions of dollars, which were routed through banks and shell companies associated with members of Biden’s family.

In the absence of the requested FD-1023 record by Comer, the committee faces challenges in assessing whether the allegations within it pose any national security risks.

The limitation also hampers the panel’s ability to gather additional evidence that could potentially contribute to the development of future legislation aimed at enhancing disclosure requirements, the Daily Wire added.
