Constitutional lawyer Jonathan Turley, a George Washington law teacher known for his liberal views, expressed his shock that the FBI hid an FD-1023 informant document substantiating detectives’ findings that Joe and Hunter Biden appear to have taken advantage of a worldwide bribery plan.
Turley appeared on Fox News Sunday with Shannon Bream and brilliantly laid out why the FBI’s reluctance to release the lightly redacted file to the general public is so bothersome.
Records follows listed below:
BREAM: The FD-1023 form that Senator Grassley launched, the FBI was not happy about that. They said that it actually could produce danger and security problems for the human informant, the personal source that came forward. It declares a number of discussions with Burisma executives out of Ukraine, stating apparently that they were required to pay the binds a specific amount of money for assist with various problems. These are unverified allegations, however we have seen individuals in Washington, the Steele dossier comes to mind, keep up unverified claims which releasing a variety of investigations.
So this 1023 type, former Attorney general of the United States Barr, informed me on this program a few weeks ago that it was sent out to Delaware to the Weiss investigation that was already open. So I asked this newest whistleblower, Joseph Ziegler, if he ever saw that form as part of his examination as the internal revenue service representative on this case.
Here’s what he informed me: “I had actually never ever seen that document before, so I had actually never ever seen that 1023. And the reason why that 1023 might have been important is that can further confirm some other evidence that we are attempting to prove in the case. Which’s why all information is needed for especially the lead internal revenue service case agent to have.”
BREAM: Jonathan, can you examine why that didn’t land in his desk during this investigation that took five years?
TURLEY: No. They also affirmed that they were denied the ability to be debriefed on what was coming out of the FBI on this issue. And Costs Barr said that he sent this issue originally to Pittsburgh and the US Lawyer’s office, instead of the FBI, found additional details that the FBI did not. And after that they sent it to Delaware.
And it increasingly it looks like the FBI is the place where proof goes to die. I mean, individuals, you send proof to the FBI, if it has the name Biden on it dies of really rapid death. Therefore we have no concept why this was not shared.
The crucial about that 1023 is that it mirrors perfectly what the House committees have found. It describes how the Bidens chose to use a maze of accounts and banks to hide payments that no payments would go to what it refers to as ‘the huge person,’ a term we have actually seen on the laptop computer. And that this was all an effort to hide these deals.
That’s precisely what the committees have actually discovered in looking at the deals from these banks. So there’s no reason this would be kept since it confirmed independent details that they had access to.
The FBI’s withholding of compelling proof that the President of the United States might be compromised by foreign powers and stands plausibly implicated of committing high criminal offenses and misdemeanors that jeopardized U.S. national security is as mysterious as it is indefensible.
