(PresidentialWire.com)- Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, ordered on Tuesday that Tim Thibault, a former FBI agent, testify before the Senate regarding the purported termination of the FBI’s 2020 investigation into Hunter Biden’s laptop.
According to Grassley, Thibault “shut down” an independent investigation most likely unrelated to the ongoing criminal investigation into alleged tax evasion by the president’s son.
According to the New York Times, U.S. prosecutor David Weiss, who Trump appointed, is currently looking into Hunter for tax fraud, money laundering, and lobbying regulations. Hunter reportedly paid the IRS $1 million to avoid conviction and a lengthy sentence and is attempting to resolve the case outside of court.
Grassley said that an independent investigation revealed that FBI agents were allegedly prevented from looking into Hunter’s laptop. He said that FBI officials sought to act on this distinct investigation material about Hunter Biden it had in its possession. But Thibault prevented the FBI from functioning as it ordinarily would have.
At the FBI’s Washington Field Office, Thibault held the assistant special agent in charge. He allegedly departed the organization without responding to the accusations made against him.
Grassley added that this implies the FBI could have obtained additional proof regarding Hunter Biden but chose to cut bait. And just before the 2020 presidential election, the FBI and Thibault trimmed their losses.
According to Grassley, Thibault allegedly shutting down the laptop investigation “calls into doubt what US attorney Weiss is truly investigating.”
Regarding the investigation into tax fraud, Grassley stated, “It also raises questions about what the FBI’s Baltimore field office is looking at and whether it’s the whole spectrum of evidence.”
Grassley claimed that current FBI Director Christopher Wray has declined to answer his questions regarding the various cases.
The senator asked how the American people could believe the investigation’s findings.
Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, believes that Thibault buried the information he shared with the FBI regarding his interactions with the Biden family in China, according to a report in the New York Post. President Joe Biden and Bobulinski had a one-hour personal meeting in 2017 to discuss “the Bidens’ family business ambitions with the Chinese.”
A 2017 email from Hunter’s laptop revealed a commercial agreement would contain 10% “held by H for the big guy?” between Bobulinski, the Biden family, and high-ranking officials of the Chinese Communist Party. The much-discussed May 13, 2017 e-mail referenced “the big guy.” According to Bobulinski, that reference was to Joe Biden.
Even though President Joe Biden and his team have stated seven times that the president hasn’t been involved in the family business, he has at least 17 instances.
