FBI expert says evidence now justifies bribery, money laundering probe of Biden family
Brock said that President Biden could be looked into under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
Former FBI Assistant Director of Intelligence Kevin Brock said Thursday that the recent information disclosed by members of Congress on the Biden family warrants bribery and money laundering investigations.
"With the amount of money that they're uncovering-with the structured money laundering that's obviously been set up, we can conclude that Joe Biden and his family were for sale," Brock said on the "Just the News, No Noise" television show. "And that was just certainly a reasonable suspicion to investigate based on those indicators."
Congressional investigators disclosed Wednesday that firms tied to the Biden family collected more than $20 million from foreign sources, including big payments from controversial oligarchs who afterwards had private dinners with Joe Biden when he was vice president.
The memo outlined numerous foreign payments, including from from persons tied to Russia, China, Ukraine, and Romania.
Brock added that Biden could face an inquiry under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
"Absolutely. That, as well as the FARA [Foreign Agents Registration Act] violations that were never charged," he said.
Brock further suggested that investigators ought to explore the breadth of the alleged operation, saying "[a]s an investigator, I'd want to know, does this conspiracy go broader than just the Biden family?"
"Are there others in that administration at that time that were benefiting from all this activity?" he continued. "So I'd widen the scope a little bit, and start really digging and following the money wherever it leads. And I frankly, wouldn't be surprised if this has broader parameters."
