A House committee is barreling toward a contempt vote Thursday against FBI director Christopher A. Wray, with the chairman accusing Mr. Wray of orchestrating a coverup by withholding subpoenaed documents that allege President Biden took bribes.
The House Oversight and Accountability Committee has drafted the contempt resolution and set a vote for Thursday unless Mr. Wray turns over the documents detailing an informant’s claims that Mr. Biden took bribes from foreign nationals when he was vice president in the Obama White House.
“The FBI has refused to comply with our lawfully issued subpoena and even refused to admit the record’s existence up until a week ago. Once Director Wray confirmed the record’s existence, the FBI started their coverup by leaking a false narrative to the media,” said Chairman James Comer, Kentucky Republican.
The Washington Times reached out to the FBI for comment but did not hear back. The FBI previously said that turning over the document would endanger the safety of sources and the integrity of ongoing investigations.
