Foreign national in Biden bribery scheme kept 17 recordings of phone calls with Joe and Hunter, Sen. Grassley reveals

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said that the Burisma Holdings executive who allegedly paid $5 million bribes to Joe and Hunter Biden kept 17 audio recordings of his conversations with the two as an “insurance policy,” an important detail that the FBI tried to cover up.

On Monday, the Iowa Republican took to the Senate floor where he revealed the contents of a June 30, 2020, FBI FD-1023 form alleging a criminal bribery scheme between the then-vice president and a foreign national in exchange for foreign policy influence and that the Ukrainian gas company exec had recorded the Bidens and kept the evidence in case he one day got into a “tight spot.”

Last week, FBI Director Christopher Wray and the Bureau finally gave in to Republican pressure and allowed the damning document to be viewed by members of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee in a secure setting with key portions of the unclassified interview with the confidential human source redacted, including the part about the recordings.

Grassley said that the document reveals that the Burisma executive has fifteen audio recordings of Hunter Biden, who was appointed to the company’s board, and another two with the “Big Guy” himself and he slammed the FBI for noncompliance with a congressional subpoena and that Congress “still lacks a full and complete picture with respect to what that document really says” as do the American people.

Grassley’s bombshell came on the day before former President Donald J. Trump will be arraigned in a federal courtroom on charges brought against him by the Biden regime for the mishandling of classified information.

“Two standards of justice in this country will turn our constitutional Republic upside down,’ Grassley said from the floor of the Senate. “Thanks to the political infection within the Biden Justice Department and FBI, we’re well along the road for that to happen.”

“This senator will do all that he can to fight that political infection. And you fight it by bringing transparency to what the government does. The public’s business ought to be public. Transparency brings accountability,” he said.

“With respect to the 1023 shown to that House Committee, from what I’ve been told by folks who’ve reviewed it, it’s filled with redactions. So, Director Wray placed redactions on a document that’s already unclassified,” Grassley continued.

“More than that, the FBI made Congress review a redacted unclassified document in a classified facility. That goes to show you the disrespect the FBI has for Congress. On a previous time on the Senate floor, I asked my fellow senators what’s so unusual about an unclassified document being given to the public, when on May 18 of this year, there was leaked to the New York Times a classified document and even the name of a confidential human source,” he said. “So, we’re kind of in a strange situation here. A classified document can be leaked to the New York Times, but an unclassified document can’t be made public to 300 million Americans.”

“Accordingly, Congress still lacks a full and complete picture with respect to what that document really says. That’s why it’s important that the document be made public without unnecessary redactions for the American people to see,” Grassley stated.

“The Justice Department and FBI must show their work. They no longer deserve the benefit of the doubt. It’s clear that the Justice Department and FBI will use every resource to investigate candidate Trump, President Trump and former President Trump,” he said.
