U.S. Senator Goes NUCLEAR On The FBI And DOJ
(UnitedVoice.com) – After the 2016 presidential election, the FBI came under scrutiny for alleged bias against former President Donald Trump because of how it handled the Trump/Russia collusion scandal. While investigating the Trump campaign, Justice Department (DOJ) Inspector General Michael Horowitz said senior department leaders violated numerous protocols and crossed several ethical boundaries. Still, the watchdog report indicated no evidence surfaced to suggest political bias. Most Conservatives aren’t buying it.
In September 2020, Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) released an 87-page report alleging President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden cashed in on his father’s public service. The GOP Senator appears to have continued his probe into allegations of FBI and/or DOJ bias. On Monday, July 25, the Iowa Senator submitted a letter stating the two agencies were discrediting viable information about Hunter Biden.
Powerful Senator Suggests DOJ and FBI Downplaying Hunter Biden Investigations
Over the last several years, Grassley alleged Joe Biden allowed his son to capitalize on his name and authority as the previous vice president. He has stated on numerous occasions that the president was silently corrupt in his dealings with China, Russia, and Ukraine through Hunter. Now, the conservative alleges the FBI and DOJ are covering for them.
In a new letter forwarded to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland, Grassley said the high number of whistleblowers consistently talking to him suggests the two agencies have a severe credibility problem. The ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee claimed the informers claim the Justice Department and FBI wrongly characterized legitimate sources and information about the president’s son as disinformation and promptly closed investigations ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
The senator described how FBI agent Timothy Thibault, a senior FBI agent in the Washington, DC, field office, closed a derogatory but credible report on Hunter Biden. Grassley added the FBI agent appeared to be part of a broader scheme to undermine negative information about the Bidens ahead of the election by discrediting it wrongly as disinformation.
Whistleblower Allegations of Political Bias Against DOJ and FBI
On May 31, Grassley submitted a letter to the inspector general demanding an investigation into Thibault over political bias and allegedly flaunting the rules and regulations in place to prevent it. The senator relayed that whistleblowers claimed the two law enforcement departments failed to comply with policies outlining specific standards to initiate an investigation.
The federal agencies deny the accusations. Still, the senator said he’s skeptical and concerned about a select number of senior FBI and DOJ leaders who appear to operate with political bias. Based on the allegations, he suggested Wray and Garland have “systemic and existential problems” within the two agencies. He noted the two leaders are responsible for taking the whistleblower complaints seriously and investigating them immediately.
