During questioning before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Abbate told Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) on Tuesday, “I have no idea if there are voice recordings or not.”
On Monday, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) accused the FBI of redacting information about the recordings from an informant file that alleged Biden was involved in a $5 million bribery scheme, a file that members of the House Oversight Committee were given access to last week.
After the FBI discovered information provided by a longtime, paid bureau informant in 2017, the informant file in question was created based on the information in June 2020. The file was revealed after a whistleblower informed Grassley about its existence earlier this year. The senator then
told House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), who is leading the House investigation into the Biden family’s overseas business dealings, about the document.
According to Grassley, there are 15 tapes of Joe and Hunter Biden being bribed from 2015 and 2016, tapes that the Ukrainian businessman claimed he kept as “insurance.”
Abbate said regarding the redacted information in the FBI’s FD-1023 report, “What I will tell you with respect to the document, the document was redacted to protect the source, as everyone knows, and this is a question of life and death, potentially.”
Members of Congress who have read the file claim it alleges that the Bidens were paid bribes to help the owner of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Mykola Zlochevsky, the company that in April 2014 hired Hunter Biden to serve on the board of directors.
Additionally, those who have viewed the document claim that it describes how Joe Biden allegedly advocated for the removal of Viktor Shokin, a Ukrainian prosecutor-general who was terminated in 2016, in exchange for $5 million.
