Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) inquired about the US Justice Department’s alleged double standards concerning the indictment of former President Trump using an audio recording as proof and the department’s noticed absence of actions in looking into reported recorded conversations describing an alleged “bribery scheme” that involves President Biden.
Grassley stated during his Senate floor speech this week that there are supposedly two audio recordings of a purported $5 million pay-for-play plan between Biden and a foreign individual. An inquiry regarding what, if anything, U.S. attorney David Weiss is doing to look into Hunter Biden after receiving the supposed proof of the reported recorded conversations.
The Trump indictment, meantime, describes an audio recording of a discussion Trump had with a reporter who was interviewing him in which the former president is said to have produced a top-secret Department of Defense document to dispute a general’s assertions that he had intended to launch an attack on another nation.
Grassley made a comparison between the utilization of an audio recording as proof by Special Counsel Jack Smith against President Trump versus the DOJ’s apparent lack of interest in the claimed audio recordings of President Biden.
According to Grassley, “Special Counsel Jack Smith used an audio recording concerning former President Trump.”
Then, he inquired, “Well, what is U.S. Prosecutor Weiss doing with regard to these purported recordings of Joe and Hunter Biden whose contents are apparently pertinent to the high-stakes bribery scheme?”
According to Grassley, a redacted FBI informant dossier contains references to a foreign individual who allegedly owned 15 audio recordings of phone conversations he made with Hunter Biden as well as two audio recordings of calls he made to Joe Biden, who was then the vice president.
“The 1023 supplied to the House Committees censored a reference that stated the foreign individual who is accused of bribing Joe and Hunter Biden purportedly possesses 17 audio recordings of his conversations. The foreign national reportedly has 15 audio recordings of calls that he made to Hunter Biden, according to the 1023. The foreign national reportedly has two audio recordings of phone discussions he had with Joe Biden, who was vice president at the time, according to the 1023. These recordings apparently served as the foreign national’s insurance policy in case he found himself in a sticky situation.”
“The 1023 also suggests that Joe Biden, who was vice president at the time, could have assisted in hiring Hunter Biden via Burisma. The Justice Department and FBI have not quite had precisely the same laser focus on the Biden family, according to the facts accessible to Congress and the general public.”
One day before Trump will make a historic court appearance in Miami federal court—the first time a former president has ever done so in American history—Grassley dropped the bombshell.
