Grassley vows to continue investigating Hunter Biden and rooting out political bias in FBI

Republican Senator Chuck Grassley said he will continue to investigate Hunter Biden and wants to root out “political bias” within the FBI at a meeting with Iowa Republicans on Sunday.

“I want you to know that I will not abandon the Hunter Biden investigation,” Grassley said, according to the Washington Examiner. “Each of you in this room, and everyone who is not in this room, should have extraordinary faith in the FBI. But today we can’t have it.’

Grassley was among GOP politicians speaking at an event at the Linn County, Iowa Fairgrounds organized by Republican Rep. Ashley Hinson.

He was joined by South Carolina Senator Tim Scott — a likely presidential nominee for 2024 — and the state’s Republican Governor Kim Reynolds.

The longtime Senator from Iowa is up for re-election and favors Democrat Mike Franken.

However, recent polls show that Democrats may be able to hold on to their Senate majority — a 50-50 split, with Vice President Kamala Harris acting as a tiebreaker — as several Republican candidates in key states like Pennsylvania and Georgia stumble.

House Republicans have also vowed to investigate President Joe Biden’s son if they get a majority in the lower house.

“I want you to know that I will not give up exposing political bias in the FBI,” said Grassley, currently the senior member of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee.

“It’s not the FBI agents at the Iowa base,” Grassley continued. “These are the people at headquarters. we must have [FBI] director [Christopher] Wray gives us a concrete plan to eliminate the FBI’s political bias,” Grassley said.

Wray was appointed for the job by ex-President Donald Trump.

Since the agency’s Aug. 8 raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and private club to recover classified documents brought from the White House to the Florida estate, Republicans at the FBI have been talking about political bias.

At the same time, Trump and his allies have pointed to Facebook co-founder and meta-CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s revelation that the platform suppressed Hunter Biden’s laptop stories ahead of the election following an FBI warning.

The FBI told Fox Business that it “routinely notifies U.S. private sector companies, including social media providers, of potential threat intelligence so they can decide how to better defend themselves against threats.”

In a statement Friday, Meta made it clear that the FBI’s warning to social media giant did not specifically mention Hunter Biden.

“As I said, nothing about the Hunter Biden laptop story is new. Below is what Senator Mark Johnson said in October 2020 and what Mark Joe Rogan said this week. The FBI shared general warnings about foreign interference — nothing specific to Hunter Biden. said the meta statement.

On Monday, Trump claimed on Truth Social that he would have won the election if Hunter Biden’s laptop story — originally published by the New York Post but corroborated by DailyMail.com, among others — had been widely shared.

The president’s son’s laptop contained a number of salacious images – including his sex life and drug use – and documents related to his foreign dealings.

The Biden campaign tried to brush off the stories leading up to the 2020 presidential election by suggesting the laptop was more likely Russian vote-rigging.

Former President Donald Trump expressed outrage Monday that the FBI

Former President Donald Trump expressed outrage Monday that the FBI “BURIED HUNTER BIDEN’S LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION.” The FBI confirmed it had alerted Facebook to “potential threat information,” but Meta said the alert didn’t specifically mention Hunter Biden

And Twitter briefly suspended the New York Post’s account after the newspaper reported on the contents of the laptop.

“So now it’s finally out that the FBI BURIED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION, knowing that “Trump would have easily won the 2020 presidential election if they hadn’t.” This is a massive FRAUD AND ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never before seen in our country,” Trump complained to Truth Social on Monday.

“REMEDY: Declare the rightful winner or, and that would be the minimum solution, declare the 2020 election irreparably compromised and hold a new election immediately!” Trump added.

The former president likely benefited politically in the 2016 cycle, when FBI Director James Comey told members of Congress that an investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton’s private email server had resumed just two weeks before Election Day.

Meanwhile, the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, but kept that investigation under wraps until the Republican won the 2016 election.
