FBI Folds, Releases Biden 'Bribery' Document To House Oversight, Averting Contempt Vote

•, by Mimi Nguyen Ly

Comer had been after an unclassified FD-1023 form that the FBI generated, which contained allegations that then-Vice President Joe Biden took a bribe from a foreign national. The committee had issued a subpoena in early May, with a deadline of May 31, requesting all FD-1023 forms containing the name "Biden."

The FD-1023 forms are used by FBI agents to collect unverified reports from various confidential human sources. The information on the form represents what was told to an FBI agent.

Comer and other House Republicans had threatened to hold Wray in contempt if he did not produce the documents. Earlier on Wednesday, the committee introduced a 17-page resolution (pdf) doing just that. A business meeting to have the full committee consider the resolution was scheduled for Thursday at 9 a.m. (EST).

But by late Wednesday, the committee announced that the FBI has decided to produce some documents— including the FD-1023 form Comer had been after—and that the committee's business meeting on Thursday to vote on holding Wray in contempt was now scrapped.
