The FBI is playing defense for Hunter Biden by hiding and discrediting his actual crimes.
Summary: The FBI had info on Hunter's criminal activity in summer 2020 and it actively suppressed it for as long as it could.
Thank the Lord that Hunter Biden is a leaky sieve of debauchery, otherwise we would have never seen how deep the rabbit hole runs.
Here's a lengthy explanation from the Washington Examiner on the details:
Agents investigating President Joe Biden's son "opened an assessment which was used by an FBI headquarters team to improperly discredit negative Hunter Biden information as disinformation and caused investigative activity to cease," according to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Grassley revealed the claim after his office received "a significant number of protected communications from highly credible whistleblowers" about the investigation. The Republican claimed one of the communications shows "verified and verifiable derogatory information on Hunter Biden was falsely labeled as disinformation."
FBI supervisory intelligence agent Brian Auten opened in August 2020 the assessment that was later used by the agency, according to the disclosures. One of the whistleblowers claimed the FBI assistant special agent in charge of the Washington field office, Timothy Thibault, shut down a line of inquiry into Hunter Biden in October 2020 despite some of the details being known to be true at the time.
A whistleblower also said Thibault "ordered closed" an "avenue of additional derogatory Hunter Biden reporting," according to Grassley, even though "all of the reporting was either verified or verifiable via criminal search warrants." The senator said Thibault "ordered the matter closed without providing a valid reason as required" and that FBI officials "subsequently attempted to improperly mark the matter in FBI systems so that it could not be opened in the future," according to the disclosures.
Whistleblowers alleged investigators from an FBI headquarters team "were in communication with FBI agents responsible for the Hunter Biden information targeted by Mr. Auten's assessment" and that their findings on whether the claims were true or disinformation were placed "in a restricted access sub-file" in September 2020, according to the senator.
Auten was also involved in the investigation around collusion between Trump and Russia that was a huge hoax.
Can you imagine if Trump had used agents at the FBI to run cover for his kids? This is the stuff of dictatorships, not republics.
The whistleblower disclosures "appear to indicate that there was a scheme in place among certain FBI officials to undermine derogatory information connected to Hunter Biden by falsely suggesting it was disinformation," Grassley said. The new allegations, summarized by Grassley in a Monday letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray, were previously unknown.
Grassley is asking for all FBI records pertaining to Hunter and his uncle James (Joe's brother), along with other internal documents by August 8 so Congress can review, but I feel like the cockroaches will find a way out of it.
I mean, what's next? Since Hunter Biden has filmed himself with more illegal drugs and hookers than any man on the planet, is the FBI going to start kicking down doors and hauling people like me off to the gulags for reporting on stuff that makes the president look bad?
Give it a few years, folks. Give it a few years.
