The FBI has not handed over the whistleblower document that alleges President Joe Biden was part of a criminal scheme during his time as vice president, and Republicans are moving forward with proceedings to hold Director Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress.
Wray let House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer view the document in a reading room at the Capital but would not release it to the committee. The FBI says that’s to protect the “physical safety of sources and the integrity of investigations.”
NTD speaks to Marc Ruskin, a retired FBI special agent and former assistant district attorney in Brooklyn, who says the FBI’s argument evaporates if the committee members agreed not to release that information if certain ground rules were set up.
Ruskin suspects the bureau is trying to minimize access to the information, but the more they try to suppress it, the more interest there is.
