(trendingpoliticsnews) – House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) told Fox News that his team has been unable to locate an FBI informant who accused President Biden of taking bribes during his tenure as vice president. Comer’s report comes nearly a week after the FBI refused to comply with a subpoena produce a crucial FBI-generated FD-1023 form related to the Biden corruption investigation.
“Well, unfortunately, we can’t track down the informant. We’re hopeful that the informant is still there,” Comer told Maria Bartiromo of Fox News on Sunday.
“Are there whistleblowers or informants missing right now?” Bartiromo asked.
“Nine of the 10 people that we’ve identified, that have very good knowledge with respect to the Biden’s, they’re one of three things Maria: they’re either currently in court, they’re currently in prison, or they’re currently missing,” Comer stated. “So it’s of the utmost importance that the FBI work with us to be able to try to identify what research they’ve done, what investigations they’ve done, because we have people who want to come forward but honestly Maria, they fear for our lives.”
Comer went on to accuse the Biden White House of intimidating witnesses, also accusing the media of intimidation. The Kentucky Republican also pointed to a recent Rasmussen poll that found seven in ten Americans believe President Biden is involved in a foreign corruption scheme.
“Seven in ten Americans strongly support the work that our House Oversight Committee is doing, investigating the Biden influence peddling. And we just need to get some cooperation from these deep state bureaucracies that are standing in our way,” Comer said.
In addition, Comer claimed that he knows who is behind the witness intimidation but said he will reveal what he knows at a later date.
“One thing that a lot of people don’t know is when I issue a subpoena to a bank, or to an individual, the second I issue that, Jamie Raskin gets that,” he said. “And when we get information in, from the bank or from any individual, one for the majority, which are the Republicans and one for the minority, which is the Democrats. And my biggest problem with the Democrats on the House Oversight Committee is they’re acting as a criminal defense attorney for the Biden family.”
