Arizona GOP Rep. Andy Biggs says the political bias of leaders in the Justice Department and the FBI is undermining trust in the agencies.

"The leadership of the FBI and DOJ seems to be hopelessly corrupted politically," Biggs said on the Thursday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show.  "There's just no reason to trust them."

Prompted by a whistleblower, House and Senate Republican investigators on Wednesday issued a subpoena for an FBI memo they say documents allegations of a pay-to-play bribery scheme involving the current president and a foreign national.

The memo, known as an FD-1023, involves allegations the FBI recorded from a confidential human source in mid-2020, just months before Joe Biden won the presidency. It involves transactions and policy tied to Ukraine that date to when Biden was Barack Obama's vice president, multiple officials said. They did not identify the informant.

"That's unbelievable corruption," Biggs said. "It is really, incredibly serious. So there's a couple of things that  we're looking at. Number one is they need to provide that to us. That's what the subpoena is all about. Let's get the information so we can go through this."

He said the second thing was to determine was the credibility of the whistleblower.  

Biggs said that a lot of Americans don't trust the federal agencies due to alleged political bias, and he has advocated to do a deep clean of agencies like the FBI.

"That's why I have advocated for either you have to dissolve the FBI and reconstitute something that's more trustworthy, or you have to just start parceling out and getting rid of some of the parts of the FBI that are that are corrupt," he stated.
