Republican probe into Joe Biden for bribery falls aside earlier than it begins

With all of their other Biden-related scandals having failed, Rep. James Comer (R-KY) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) now claim to have a whistleblower accusing Biden of taking bribes but their information are unconfirmed so it’s another GOP show.

Comer said in a press release, “Information provided by a whistleblower raises concerns that then-Vice President Biden was allegedly involved in a bribery scheme with a foreigner. The American people need to know if President Biden sold the United States of America to make money for himself. Senator Grassley and I will seek the truth to ensure accountability for the American people.”

In the same press release, Grassley said: “We believe the FBI possesses an unclassified internal document containing very serious and detailed allegations concerning the current President of the United States. What we don’t know is what the FBI did to verify or further investigate these claims. The FBI’s recent history of botching politically charged investigations requires close scrutiny by Congress.”

Grassley and Comer are investigating Joe Biden for bribery based on a document they heard about but have not reviewed. The two Republican congressmen issued a press release regarding the possible involvement of the President of the United States in a bribery scheme with no evidence that Biden was ever involved in a bribery scheme.

House Republicans also have a long history of claiming that people who aren’t whistleblowers are whistleblowers. So it looks like the “bribery” investigation is having trouble before it begins.

Sen. Grassley went to Fox News to talk about the big bribery investigation but said we would have to wait for details:

Chuck Grassley is at Fox News and has accused Biden of involvement in a bribery scheme. But when he presses for details, he says, “We’ll have to wait.” It sounds legit.

Republicans are trying all sorts of shady ways to smear President Biden ahead of the 2024 election because if it’s an election based on issues and character, Trump doesn’t stand a chance against Biden.
