FBI Reviewed, Closed Inquiry into Biden Claims at Center of Hill Fight

This occurred under the last administration

The FBI and Justice Department under then-Attorney General William Barr reviewed allegations from a confidential informant about Joe Biden and his family; they determined there were no grounds for further investigative steps, according to Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) and other people familiar with the investigation.

Raskin revealed the information about the investigation after he and House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) on Monday reviewed a document containing details of the allegation. That document has been at the center of a weeks-long back and forth between the FBI and Comer, who last month sought to force the agency to produce the document via a subpoena.

After the two lawmakers reviewed the document in a secure area on Capitol Hill on Monday, Comer announced that House Republicans would still pursue holding FBI Director Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress.
