You won’t hear anything about it in the mainstream media, but this whole business of President Joe Biden accepting bribes from foreign nationals while he was vice president isn’t going away just yet. As you know, House Oversight Republicans subpoenaed a document allegedly outlining the bribery scheme; FBI Director Chris Wray countered with this offer: I’ll let you review the document, but you can’t have it.
In fact, after leaving a hearing with the FBI on Monday, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna said the FBI is afraid their informant will be killed if unmasked, based on the info he has brought forward about the Biden family.
Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin was also at the hearing and 100 percent stands by what he heard an FBI agent tell him.
.@RepRaskin: “I stand 100% by my statements that we were told by the FBI team that visited us on Monday, June 5, 2023, that the Department of Justice team of prosecutors and FBI agents under U.S. Attorney Scott Brady determined that there were no grounds to escalate their probe"

The Federalist, however, reports that Raskin lied about the probe being shut down in a press conference following the hearing:
“If there is a complaint, it is with Attorney General William Barr, the Trump Justice Department, and the team that the Trump administration appointed to look into it,” Raskin said. What does Barr have to say about that?
Former Attorney General Barr confirms the Biden bribery record is not closed.
In fact, it was sent to the U.S. Attorney in Delaware for further investigation.
The FBI is engaged in a coverup and Democrats are lying.https://t.co/oqGQdJJCVq

Margot Cleveland writes for The Federalist:
It’s not true. It wasn’t closed down,” William Barr told The Federalist on Tuesday in response to Democrat Rep. Jamie Raskin’s claim that the former attorney general and his “handpicked prosecutor” had ended an investigation into a confidential human source’s allegation that Joe Biden had agreed to a $5 million bribe. “On the contrary,” Barr stressed, “it was sent to Delaware for further investigation.”
Former Attorney General Barr went on the record with The Federalist following statements Raskin made to the press Monday afternoon. Soon after attending a closed-door meeting with House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer and the FBI — at which lawmakers reviewed the FD-1023 form summarizing a CHS’s detailed allegations that then-Vice President Joe Biden agreed to accept money from a foreign national to affect policy decisions — Raskin spoke to the media.
Here’s Raskin briefing the media:
Watch Jamie Raskin get busted by the press for referencing the wrong investigation during his press conference today after he was briefed by FBI Director Wray.
Raskin was either purposely misleading the public or he is an absolute moron, or most likely, both. pic.twitter.com/cJOJuldmoG

WaPo is going with the FBI’s claim:
“The allegation contained in the document was reviewed by the FBI at the time and was found to not be supported by facts, and the investigation was subsequently dropped with the Trump Justice Department’s sign-off”

As @FDRLST reported today, that’s a lie. The AG himself confirmed it was a lie on the record.

Democrats/FBI/CNN/WP ran an info op to assert Bill Barr found nothing worthwhile in Biden bribery allegation. But Barr says that's not true and in fact it was referred to DE US Attorney Weiss for further investigation. Details: https://t.co/s6q8BPOXj0

Raskin is now claiming he didn’t lie—he just peddled FBI lies about detailed evidence suggesting Biden accepted bribes as VP.
It’s the Russian collusion playbook all over again. The FBI lies for Democrats, and then their co-conspirators in media and Congress repeat the lies. https://t.co/mHZw6jk7Cv

The White House used liberal media and Raskin to spin a false narrative as seen in Sams’ dishonest tweets
The bottom line: THE FBI NEVER INVESTIGATED THIS ALLEGATION; The Oversight Committee is pic.twitter.com/b4RPb8zMCN

Raskin is a lying fraud.

Well @RepRaskin … do you see a problem there then?

I’m not a body language expert but even I could tell he was lying

I’m literally losing track of all the corruption. Biden had his hands in more foreign men’s pockets than Elizabeth Taylor. But my guess is, he’ll somehow come out okay as they pursue Trump for saying “Peaceful” only two times instead of three or Jaywalking. Hello dystopia.
