FBI Director Wray Risks Contempt Charge Over Subpoena Snub Related to Biden Investigation

Knowledge Nuggets:

  • FBI Director Christopher Wray has failed to meet the deadline for a subpoena concerning a document allegedly outlining a “criminal scheme” involving President Joe Biden.
  • Rep. James Comer (R-KY), the House Oversight Committee chairman investigating Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings, accused the FBI of refusing to provide the requested record, which purportedly implicates Joe Biden and an unidentified “foreign national.”
  • Comer had previously warned Wray of potential contempt of Congress proceedings if the FBI failed to cooperate. Despite a call scheduled with Wray on Wednesday, Comer is now considering pursuing such proceedings.

FBI Director Christopher Wray is facing a potential contempt charge as he again misses a subpoena deadline, adding more tension to an ongoing investigation involving President Joe Biden. The subpoena pertains to a form allegedly describing a “criminal scheme” that implicates Biden and an as-yet-unidentified “foreign national.”

Rep. James Comer (R-KY), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, expressed his dissatisfaction on Tuesday as the FBI continued to withhold the requested document. Comer, leading the investigation into Hunter Biden’s foreign business transactions, had previously warned Wray of potential contempt of Congress proceedings should the FBI director fail to cooperate. Despite a scheduled call with Wray on Wednesday, Comer has suggested moving forward with holding Wray in contempt.

Comer expressed his disappointment on Tuesday afternoon, stating, “The FBI’s decision to stiff-arm Congress and hide this information from the American people is obstructionist and unacceptable.” He further added, “While I have a call scheduled with FBI Director Wray tomorrow to discuss his response further, the Committee has been clear in its intent to protect Congressional oversight authorities and will now be taking steps to hold the FBI Director in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a lawful subpoena.”

The FBI released a statement in response on Tuesday, calling the escalation before the planned Wednesday call “unnecessary.” The statement reads, “The FBI remains committed to cooperating with the Committee in good faith. In a letter to Chairman Comer earlier today, the FBI committed to providing access to information responsive to the Committee’s subpoena in a format and setting that maintains confidentiality and protects important security interests and the integrity of FBI investigations.”

Comer had issued the FBI a letter in early May stating that “whistleblower disclosures” suggested the FBI and Justice Department possess an FD-1023 form. This form reportedly outlines an “alleged criminal scheme” involving President Biden and a foreign national “relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions.” The FD-1023 form is utilized by the FBI to record interviews with confidential human sources.

Despite multiple meetings between Comer’s and the FBI’s staff, the FBI has repeatedly refused to hand over the document, resulting in escalating tension and threats of potential contempt proceedings. Comer’s office maintains that “Americans deserve the truth, and the Oversight Committee will continue to demand transparency from this nation’s chief law enforcement agency.”

      C. Lesaint – you hit the nail on the head! There are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of Deep State actors that need more than waterboarding to get to the truth of their malfeasance! The DOJ, FBI, CIA, and NSA are just the tip of the iceberg. They all need to “be hung from the neck until dead”.

      well…I understand your anger and we all might fantasize about choking leftists but part of being a free nation is allowing fools to express their opinion no matter how disgusting or infuriating.
      What we DO need are office holders from the right that have a spine and willing to oppose the nut case democrats.

    What Wray is doing is what those democrats politicians and Garland is telling him to do! This Biden family gone all the way back to the day BIDEN WAS A SENATE! They are telling him REPUBLICANS ALL TALK NO ACTION! Until Comer arrested him and removed him as director of the FBI. NOTHING WILL PROVE THAT REPUBLICANS ARE SERIOUS ABOUT GETTING TO BOTTOM OF THIS.

    Oh come on, nothing whatsoever will happen to Christopher Wray as he’s a career criminal. The entire FBI and CIA is corrupt & should be sacked! Let all the crooked Dem politicians such as Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton get consequences for their actions.

    It will go no place as it has to be done by the DOJ, and that currently is held by the demonRATS.

    Congress, send in the Federal Marshals to arrest the FBI Director and throw him in prison for his contempt. Make an example of him to the Country and show that Congress still has power and authority equal to the Executive Branch.
