Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., said in a social media post Monday that the FBI fears that unmasking its informant on President Joe Biden's family business dealings will lead to the informant's killing.
"Just left meeting for House Oversight," Luna posted on Twitter on Monday. "The F.B.I. is afraid their informant will be killed if unmasked, based on the info he has brought forward about the Biden family."
The post came after the FBI briefed House Oversight Chair Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., and Ranking Member Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., about a document that implicates Biden and his family in a multi-million-dollar bribery scheme that took place while he was vice president.
"Today, FBI officials confirmed that the unclassified, FBI-generated record has not been disproven and stated several times the information contained within it is currently being used in an ongoing investigation," Comer said in a press release Monday.
"The confidential human source who provided information about then-Vice President Biden being involved in a criminal bribery scheme is a trusted, highly credible informant who has been used by the FBI for years. These are facts and no amount of spin and, frankly, lies from the White House or Congressional Democrats can change this information."
Comer said the document alleges then Vice President Biden took part in a $5 million scheme with a foreign entity in exchange for certain policy actions.
Comer said the information in the document followed a "pattern" the committee has seen through other evidence and materials where the family members were paid large sums of money through a series of shell companies and bank accounts.
Comer and the committee issued a subpoena for the document to the FBI in May after a whistleblower made them aware of the document's existence, but FBI Director Christopher Wray refused to show the unclassified document to all the committee members, and only allowed Comer and Raskin access to it in a secured environment Monday.
"At the briefing, the FBI again refused to hand over the unclassified record to the custody of the House Oversight Committee and we will now initiate contempt of Congress proceedings," Comer said in his release. "Given the severity and complexity of the allegations contained within this record, Congress must investigate further.
"Americans have lost trust in the FBI's ability to enforce the law impartially and demand answers, transparency, and accountability. The Oversight Committee must follow the facts for the American people and ensure the federal government is held accountable."
The committee scheduled a contempt hearing for Wray on Thursday.
