Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) divulged to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday the breadth of potentially criminal evidence against Hunter Biden that has been shared with Congress.
“Recent lawfully protected whistleblower disclosures to my office indicate that the Justice Department and the FBI had at one time over a dozen sources who provided potentially criminal information relating to Hunter Biden,” Grassley said.
“The alleged volume and similarity of the information would demand that the Justice Department investigate the truth and accuracy of the information,” he added.
Grassley made the revelation during a hearing with Garland held by the Senate Judiciary Committee after asking hypothetical questions about protections for whistleblowers who match the description of the people who came forward to his office.
The senator asked Garland what steps the Justice Department has taken to determine the truth and accuracy of the information given to Grassley’s team.
“Congress and the American people I think have a right to know,” Grassley said.
Garland largely refused to give detailed answers about the active investigation into President Joe Biden’s adult son, deferring to Delaware’s U.S. Attorney David Weiss.
The attorney general said any information about Hunter Biden should have gone to Weiss and the “FBI squad” assisting him.
