Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) slammed the FBI’s political bias and efforts to shut down the investigation into Joe Biden’s crackhead son Hunter Biden.

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday, Grassley told FBI Director Christopher Wray the Bureau’s overt political bias made it pursue an investigation into President Donald Trump’s campaign (which turned out to be unsubstantiated), while stonewalling investigations into Hunter.

Here’s a transcript of Sen. Grassley’s remarks:

Political bias has also infected the FBI’s decision-making process. As Director Wray aware, multiple Justice Department whistleblowers have approached my office about that political bias. They are patriots. They’ve got guts.

According to whistleblowers, the FBI opened an investigation on the Trump campaign and its advisors. The opening memo for this investigation is based in substantial part on liberal news reporting. It’s also based on information derived from a left-wing nonprofit. Based on allegations, Director Wray and Attorney General Garland reviewed the memo and approved a full investigation.

Now, as I’ve said in my letter, if the FBI is going to open an investigation you have to do it the right way. It appears the right way wasn’t done. So, let’s contrast this investigation with what the FBI has done with allegedly criminal information received from numerous sources relating to Hunter Biden.

Simply put, the FBI shut matters down. In August 2020, an FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst opened an assessment. This August 2020 assessment served as the vehicle by which an FBI Headquarters team falsely labeled Hunter Biden information as disinformation. As just one example to make my concerns clear, in October 2020, an avenue of reporting on Hunter Biden was ordered closed. That Hunter Biden information related to potential criminal activity.

According to whistleblowers, the reporting was either verified or verifiable via criminal search warrants. But, it was shut down on the basis of it being at risk of disinformation. Based on allegations, the evidence didn’t support that finding.

So, let’s look at both these fact patterns. On the one hand, the FBI greenlit a full investigation into Trump based on liberal news articles and information derived from a liberal nonprofit. On the other hand, the FBI closed investigative activity and sources that provided verified and verifiable reporting on Hunter Biden.

Director Wray will have to explain to the committee – and the country – how he’ll manage this mess and clean house.

In conclusion, I’m going to make one last point. In August 2020, Senator Johnson and I received an unsolicited and unnecessary briefing from the FBI. It purportedly related to our Biden investigation but it had nothing to do with it.

The briefing was done after the FBI received pressure from my Democratic colleagues to do it. The contents of that briefing were later leaked in order to falsely paint our investigation as advancing Russian disinformation. That briefing was held the same month the FBI opened the assessment that was used to label Hunter Biden information as disinformation.

The timing of these events draws serious concern. Director Wray, simply put, the FBI’s credibility is on the line, as are the principles that helped found and sustain our great nation.

Besides shady business dealings in China, Ukraine and other countries exposed in his various laptops and devices, Hunter’s also accused of lying on a federal form during the purchase of a gun.
