Over 40 confidential FBI sources say there’s evidence of criminal activity committed by Joe, James and Hunter Biden with accusations of the Department of Justice shutting them down.
In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley said that the sources had been managed by different FBI field offices and supplied the bureau with details of potential crimes by the Biden’s.
According to the letter seen by DailyMail.com, Grassley learned that an FBI task force within the Washington Field Office sought to, and managed to, successfully shut down reporting from those sources by falsely discrediting the information.
Grassley wrote in his letter: ‘Allegations from multiple Justice Department whistleblowers indicate there is, and has been, an effort among certain Justice Department and FBI officials to improperly delay and stop full and complete investigative activity into the Biden family.’
The Senator also said that in at least one case, a source and its information was vetted by numerous U.S. attorney’s offices, which found ‘no hits’ to Russian sources.

Grassley continued: ‘Based on the information provided to my office over a period of years by multiple credible whistleblowers, there appears to be an effort within the Justice Department and FBI to shut down investigative activity relating to the Biden family.
‘Such decisions point to significant political bias infecting the decision-making of not only the Attorney General and FBI Director, but also line agents and prosecutors.
‘Our Republic cannot survive such a political infection and you have an obligation to this country to clear the air.’
Grassley also spoke of how whistleblower allegations in 2020 about Hunter Biden’s ‘criminal financial and related activity’ that was shut down based on ‘false assertions’ that it was foreign disinformation.
One critical point that Grassley makes in his letter refers to a human source who alleged a bribery scheme between then Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden and the founder and CEO of Burisma Holdings Mykola Zlochevsky.
The source told the bureau that the father and son had ‘coerced’ Zlochevsky to pay them millions of dollars in exchange for their help in getting a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma, Viktor Shokin, fired.
The White House has strenuously denied these allegations, despite Shokin going public and saying the two had a part to play in his dismissal.

In his letter, Grassley revealed that in December 2019, the FBI Washington Field Office closed a 205B Kleptocracy case into Zlochevsky.
The case had originally been opened in January 2016 by a Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Squad based in the same office, which is also a squad that includes agents from FBI headquarters.
At the time that the probe into Burisma was closed, Hunter Biden’s role on the board of the company was under heavy scrutiny.
Former President Donald Trump had also requested Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to investigate the family’s dealings in Ukraine and why the prosecutor investigating Burisma had been fired.
In February 2020, Grassley said a meeting then took place inside the FBI Field Office in Pittsburgh.

According to the Senator: ‘That meeting involved discussion about investigative matters relating to the Hunter Biden investigation and related inquiries, which most likely would’ve included the case against Zlochevsky.’
Following this, an assessment was opened in the Pittsburgh office to analyze the information about the Bidens, with information supplied by Rudy Giuliani.
While the case was assessed, officials are said to have then located a form relating to the kleptocracy investigation into Zlochevsky.
This document is said to have included a reference to Hunter Biden being on the board of Burisma, which the agent handling is said to have deemed ‘non-relevant information to the ongoing criminal financial case.’
Officials at the DOJ and FBI are then said to have asked the handler for the source to re-interview them, which according to Grassley took a month.
After re-interviewing the source, a formal document was filed alleging a criminal scheme between then-Vice President Biden, Hunter Biden and Zlochevsky in June 2020.
Grassley wrote that the reassessment of the file was frequently paused for weeks at a time due to DOJ and FBI officials.
Grassley also said that in August 2020, FBI Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten opened an assessment to seek out confidential human source information at FBI field offices across the country relating to the Biden family.
Grassley said he then worked to ‘falsely discredit them as foreign disinformation.’
He concluded: ‘Our findings indicated potential criminal activity, to include money laundering, with respect to members of the Biden family and their business associates as well as strong financial connections to questionable foreign nationals and foreign government-linked corporate entities.’
Grassley demanded the FBI and DOJ provide answers to his letter by Nov. 17.
