FBI Deputy Director Can’t Answer Why They Won’t Release Document Alleging Biden Took $5 Million In Bribes

Hunter Joe Biden

During a Senate Judiciary hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Josh Hawley asked FBI Deputy Director Paul Abbate why the FBI refuses to release the document known as an “FD-1023,” which House Oversight Chairman James Comer says contains proof of the Biden family taking “bribes” from a Ukrainian gas company.

“We’ve confirmed that the document exists, that’s progress because the FBI director originally denied that it exists. Why did he do that?” Hawley asked. 

“We have already and previously acknowledged the existence of the document,” Abbate claimed. 

“Yeah, after you first denied it,” Hawley noted. “When a member of this committee read it. Let’s get the record straight, the FBI director originally said it doesn’t exist. Then Sen. Grassley said he’s read it. Then he said, ‘Oh, OK, gotcha, I guess it does exist.’ Now you’re going back and forth with members of this committee about what’s in it. Why don’t you just release it? Is it classified?”

“The document is not classified,” Abbate claimed, even though the FBI refuses to release the document. 

“Okay. How about just a yes or no?” Hawley responded. “Will you commit to releasing this unclassified document that alleges that the President Of the United States has taken $5 million or more in bribes from a foreign nation?”

After Abbate dodged the question again, Hawley asked, “Will you release the document to the public? It’s unclassified. Don’t you think the American people have the right to see it?”

“Senator, the document, as you know, contains sensitive information that has bearing on the life of the source of the information, potentially,” Abbate said.
