'The FBI Is Attempting A Coverup': GOP Oversight Chairman Takes Action To Hold FBI Director In Contempt

House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) announced on Twitter that he just introduced a resolution to hold FBI Director Christopher Wray in criminal contempt over his failure to abide by a lawful congressional subpoena to hand over an unclassified memo that detailed allegations of a bribery scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden. 

"Americans have lost trust in the FBI’s ability to enforce the law impartially and demand accountability. [GOP Oversight] must follow the facts and ensure the government is held accountable. I just introduced the Resolution to hold FBI Director Wray in contempt of Congress," declared the Republican chairman. 
Representative Comer also highlighted that the case against Biden's bribery was not closed by the Trump adminstration, contrary to claims by Democrats that the memo that Comer sought was old information that was closed by former Attorney General William Barr. 

"The FBI is attempting a coverup right before our eyes and Democrats are doing their bidding by lying. AG Barr handed over the FBI record that alleges a bribery scheme by then VP Biden to the US Attorney in Delaware for further investigation. This record is not closed," Comer claimed.

The Oversight Committee's press release included further statements by the chairman. "We have been clear that the FBI must produce the unclassified FD-1023 record to the custody of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability. To date, the FBI has refused to comply with our lawfully issued subpoena and even refused to admit the record’s existence up until a week ago" observed Comer. Comer further noted, "Once Director Wray confirmed the record’s existence, the FBI started their coverup by leaking a false narrative to the media. The case is not closed as the White House, Democrats, and the FBI would have the American people believe."

Representative Comer detailed that "[t]he FBI created this record based on information from a credible informant who has worked with the FBI for over a decade and paid six figures. The informant had first-hand conversations with the foreign national who claimed to have bribed then-Vice President Biden. And now, Attorney General Barr has confirmed that the record was given to the U.S. Attorney in Delaware for the purpose of that investigation."

Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Jim Jordan (R-OH) backed up Comer's claim that the case was not previously closed. Jordan wrote on Twitter that "Rep. Raskin said that Attorney General Barr closed down the investigation into the Biden bribery probe. The only problem? AG Barr says he didn’t!"
