DOJ blocks FBI agent's Hill testimony on alleged suppression of Hunter Biden laptop story, report
The agent Elvis Chan has reportedly voluntarily agreed to appear before the committee and testify, according to the Daily Mail.
An FBI agent who allegedly lied about Big Tech being involved in the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story was blocked by the Justice Department from giving congressional testimony Friday, according to a news report.
The agent, Elvis Chan, has reportedly voluntarily agreed to appear before the House Judiciary Committee, represented by his personal counsel, and to testify, according to the Daily Mail.
Agency witnesses are allowed only to bring either agency counsel or personal counsel to committee interviews. They reportedly cannot bring both because the rule allows agency witnesses to be more candid in testimony with no fear of professional retribution.
Sources told the the Daily Mail the department halted the testimony because agency counsel also showed up Friday morning before the committee. Due to that circumstance, Chan's scheduled interview did not take place.
According to the outlet, an official subpoena is expected to be issued to Chan to appear for an interview next week on Sept. 21.
Chan has testified in lawsuits against the federal government in the past regarding censorship and Big Tech collusion.
