Just how worried are Republicans that President Joe Biden will win a second term in office come 2024? So much so that they’re now saying the quiet part out loud and admitting that they don’t give a damn if their spurious accusations against the president are true or not.
During an appearance on Fox, Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley was asked about a document in the possession of the FBI that House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) claims is proof of criminal activity by Biden when he was vice president in the Obama administration.
Lawmakers can review the document at FBI headquarters if they want, but Comer and Grassley are demanding that it be given to them, which would be a violation of Bureau policy.
“Well, it’s not good enough for me,” Grassley said. “We asked for the document a month ago, it has been subpoenaed. We’re doing the constitutional job of oversight. I have read that document. If he would read it and it is an unclassified document, he admits it exists and we aren’t interested in whether or not the accusations against vice president Biden are accurate or not. We are responsible for making sure the FBI does its job, and that’s what we want to know.”
It should be noted that Grassley refused to say what findings might be made from the document or what crime it would prove.
“If he (Wray) would read it, he would know that all the excuses he is giving us that he wants to protect sources, and that’s important to protect sources, but that’s not an issue with this document the way I read it,” Grassley claimed. “He ought to come forth. They’ve got to produce this document. They are up against what the Durham report has said about the shortcomings and political bias of the FBI this is just one more example of them not being forthcoming to the public because the public’s business ought to be public. and there is no reason for an unclassified document to be held in secret.”
Does the document prove any wrongdoing by Biden? Grassley admitted that it’s not “damning,” but added, “Let’s put it this way, there’s accusations in it. But it’s not for me to make a judgment about whether these accusations are accurate or not, it’s up to my job to make sure the FBI is doing their job, and that’s what this is all about as far as I’m concerned. Public’s business ought to be public.”
The GOP is in full spin mode because they know their savior, Donald Trump, is about to be indicted for espionage and other crimes. They want to try and chum the waters so they can suggest that anything Trump might have done are no worse than the imaginary “crimes” they want accuse Biden of committing.
It’s not just pathetic, it’s downright comical.
