Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, is requesting FBI documents that pertain to the Biden family and their relationship with China.
"Chuck Grassley is calling on the FBI to produce specific records in its possession indicating potential criminal activity in the Biden family’s foreign business deals," Grassley said Monday. "It remains unclear whether those FBI records, which have been reviewed by Grassley’s investigative staff, have been shared with the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s Office as part of its ongoing criminal investigation into Hunter Biden."
In a previous letter, submitted on Oct. 13, Grassley said that he had written three previous letters to the FBI and DOJ regarding these deals with the Biden family and has not heard back.
"Based on recent protected disclosures to my office, the FBI has within its possession significant, impactful and voluminous evidence with respect to potential criminal conduct by Hunter Biden and James Biden," according to the letter, referring to President Biden's son and brother, respectively.
"The evidence within the FBI’s possession that I am referencing is included, in part, in a summary of Tony Bobulinski’s October 23, 2020, interview with FBI agents.
"In that interview, Mr. Bobulinski stated that the arrangement Hunter Biden and James Biden created with foreign nationals connected to the communist Chinese government included assisting them with potential business deals and investments while Joe Biden was Vice President; however, that work remained intentionally uncompensated while Joe Biden was Vice President," the letter continued.
The FBI and the DOJ have yet to respond to Grassley's requests.
