In a stunning development, former Attorney General William Barr has called on Attorney General Merrick Garland to release a significant FBI document that allegedly exposes a criminal bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden.
In an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital, Barr emphasized the importance of transparency and equal treatment in investigations related to both former President Donald Trump and the Biden family.
Barr stressed the need for assurance that ongoing investigations concerning the Bidens are being pursued with the same rigor as the case against Trump. Recent reports of potential interference with the Delaware investigation have raised concerns, underscoring the urgency for Garland to take concrete steps.
The document in question, known as FD-1023, alleges that Joe Biden received a substantial $5 million payment from a Burisma Holdings executive as part of a bribery scheme that influenced U.S. policy decisions. The document, dated June 30, 2020, contains detailed accounts from a highly credible confidential human source who had multiple interactions with a top Burisma executive.
The investigation into Hunter Biden’s business dealings has progressed slowly, causing concern among Chairman Comer and key senators who seek a comprehensive understanding of the document. Congress still lacks vital information, leaving many questions unanswered.
Barr suggested that the AG should consider providing Chairman Comer and Senate supporters with the FD-1023 report, while ensuring the safety of confidential sources. During Barr’s tenure, the document underwent a rigorous review process to verify its credibility and relevance. It was then routed to U.S. Attorney Weiss in Delaware, who is leading the Hunter Biden probe.
While the DOJ has a policy against sharing raw reports, Barr argued that the unique circumstances of this case warrant a more proactive approach. He praised the Hill’s efforts in exposing false Russian collusion claims and suggested that allowing lawmakers to examine the document could be beneficial, provided confidential sources are protected.
The nation now awaits Attorney General Garland’s decision on whether to release the crucial FD-1023 document to Republican lawmakers. The outcome could reveal significant information about the alleged bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden.
