Comer: Democrats Continue to Lie About Biden Bribery Record

WASHINGTON—House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) issued the following statement after Ranking Member Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) again repeated false claims about the FBI’s unclassified FD-1023 form that memorializes a confidential human source’s conversations with a Burisma executive who claimed to have bribed then-Vice President Joe Biden for $5 million:

“It doesn’t matter how many times Ranking Member Raskin repeats the lie, it’s still a lie. The information contained in the FBI’s FD-1023 form did not originate with Rudy Giuliani, and as Former Attorney General William Barr has confirmed publicly, the FD-1023 was not closed but rather forwarded to the U.S. Attorney in Delaware for further investigation. In addition, Director Wray himself told Senator Grassley and me directly that the FD-1023 form was related to an ongoing investigation.

“The Biden bribery record contains serious allegations and the American people deserve answers, transparency, and accountability. The Oversight Committee will continue to follow the facts and ensure accountability for the American people. Democrats’ lies and deterrents will not distract us from this goal.”
