Earlier this year, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released the findings of an FD-1023 form filed by an FBI informant who alleged that President Joe Biden and his son Hunter accepted a $10 million bribe from Burisma’s founder. Raskin, however, claimed the findings had no credibility. The lawmaker also claimed that the FBI did not investigate the allegations because it did not find them credible.
Raskin, in September, also claimed that House Republicans investigating the Biden family have nothing on the president. Raskin alleged that all the evidence against the Bidens was mere “conspiracy theory” and a “fairytale.”
“They’ve got nothing on President Joe Biden,” Raskin said in September. “All they can do is return to the thoroughly demolished lie that Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump launched five years ago.”
Jamie Raskin attempted to help cover up Biden family corruption by lying about the FBI’s Biden Bribery Record.
The prosecutor who probed the Biden family’s deals in Ukraine believed further investigation was necessary but the FBI resisted.

Former Pittsburgh U.S. Attorney Scott Brady on Monday told the House Judiciary Committee that the allegations were credible and that the FBI was reluctant to investigate the allegations because Biden was running for office at the time.

“My understanding of Mr. Raskin’s public statements is that, based on the determination that I, and my team, found the allegations in the 1023 not credible or other information not credible, we did not escalate the assessment to a limited or full investigation,” Brady told investigators. “That’s not true.”

“In the course of this investigation, you have been a spirited critic of the need to look into President Biden or his family,” they wrote. “However, the Oversight Committee must not be used as a means to propagate false or deceptive information, and for that purpose, we must address public statements you have made that contradict facts and are, unfortunately, lies…. The Committee requests that you formally correct the record and apologize to the American people for spreading disinformation about the evidence collected by the Committee during its investigation of President Biden.”
