Republican members of the House Oversight Committee confirmed last Thursday that the FD-1023 on an alleged bribery scheme between then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national involves payments made to the Biden family by the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings, the Washington Examiner reported.
Faced with the threat of contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena to turn over the document, FBI Director Christopher Wray agreed to let members of the Oversight Committee view the FD-1023 on Thursday.
The FD-1023 outlines allegations made by a confidential human source in 2020, whom Oversight Committee Chair James Cover referred to as a “trusted” and “high credible” paid FBI informant.
According to Chairman Comer, the document is being used in an ongoing investigation into the president’s son, Hunter Biden.
Republican committee members who spoke with reporters after viewing the document confirmed that the FD-1023 describes allegations that Burisma Holdings paid $5 million a piece to Hunter Biden and then-Vice President Biden to have Biden put pressure on the Ukrainian government to fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin who was investigating the energy company.
The money was then routed through multiple bank accounts before making it to the Bidens.
While the allegations have not been publicly verified by the FBI, the information came from a confidential human source that learned of the bribery scheme from a foreign national.
North Dakota Republican Rep. Kelly Armstrong told the Washington Examiner that the document made it “abundantly clear” that the only reason Hunter Biden was put on the Burisma board was because of his father.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) told reporters that Burisma was under pressure from Viktor Shokin, and the payments made to the Biden family were linked to shutting down the investigation by getting Shokin removed.
Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said the FD-1023 implicates Biden in a bribery scheme “to get Shokin fired” and end his investigation into Burisma.
