(PresidentialInsider.com)- Sen. Chuck Grassley stated Tuesday that he had received evidence from whistleblowers indicating that the Department of Justice had purposely postponed numerous key investigations.
During an appearance on “The Record with Greta Van Susteren,” the Republican from Iowa stated that the department may be opening investigations with little evidence and may not be following through on certain cases due to political motivation.
Concerning the difficulties with President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, Grassley stated that this extends beyond Hunter Biden. He said this speaks to more of the larger question of whether or not there are folks in the Justice Department who are closing down investigations that should be continued because of political influence. Then they’re bringing up cases with simply imprecise information.
Grassley said he had provided sufficient evidence to the Justice Department to raise valid questions, and until they have those questions addressed, he can’t talk about it any longer.
He went on to underline that there is evidence that investigations concerning former President Donald Trump were opened up based on claims by the leftist media. At the same time, another case involving Hunter Biden was prematurely closed down.
The senator, the leading member of the chamber’s Judiciary Committee, stated that he took particular issue with an FBI agent called Timothy Thibault, who reportedly closed down a report involving Hunter Biden in October of 2020.
He said that Thibault, they learned via social media, is very much a liberal, very much an ideologue, and entirely political. So, he addressed these problems with [FBI Director Christopher] Wray about a month ago, and the individual has been transferred.
On Monday, Grassley first made his concerns public in a letter to Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland. In the letter, Grassley asserted that his office “had received many protected communications from highly credible whistleblowers. And if these allegations are true and accurate, the Justice Department and FBI are — and have been — institutionally corrupted to their very core to the point in which the United States Congress and the American people will have no confidence,
On November 8, the general election will be between Grassley and Democrat Michael Franken.
