(Luis Cornelio, Headline USA) Several Republican lawmakers have made bombshell revelations about the FD-1023 informant file, which allegedly exposes a $5-million bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden.
The new details, brought to light by Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., include a damning allegation that Biden himself received a multi-million-dollar payment from scandal-ridden Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings.
Taylor Greene held an unplanned press conference after gaining access to the infamous file and revealed that Burisma sought to influence the Obama-Biden administration by offering the bribe to Biden himself through his son Hunter.
“Back in 2015 – 2016, Burisma was looking to buy a U.S.-based oil and gas company, and this came from being advised by Hunter Biden and his partners,” Taylor Greene declared. “Biden said [Viktor] Shokin was corrupt. That was around the time of this meeting, [which] was when Joe Biden, as vice president had said that Prosecutor Shokin was corrupt. They hired Hunter on the board to make the problems go away.”
In a tweet that has since gone viral, Taylor Greene added, “Burisma said that Hunter was stupid and that his other business partner was smart. He also said that he paid $5 million to one Biden and he paid $5 million to another Biden, and it was all a bribery to get Shokin fired and end the investigation to Burisma.”
Boebert echoed Taylor Green’s assessment during an interview with Benny Johnson’s podcast, stating, “There was a $5 million dollar payment made to Joe Biden, not Hunter Biden, Joe Biden ‘the Big Guy.’” A fired-up Boebert slammed Democrats who claimed the Democrat president was not implicated in the payments. “They [Burisma] used Hunter Biden because he was ‘stupid’ and that he could go through his dad for protection and that it would all just go away.”
Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, came under fire when it was revealed that they had paid Hunter more than $50,000 per month for his role on their board. Several Republican lawmakers found these substantial payments questionable, considering the president’s crack-addict son’s lack of experience in gas and energy.
The informant, whom Taylor Greene referred to as “highly credible,” provided detailed information about the alleged bribery scheme in the FD-1023 file. The file had been kept confidential by FBI Director Christopher Wray over concerns that releasing it could jeopardize the informant’s safety, including his life.
I saw the FBI document. BIDEN is corrupt.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., with the assistance of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, issued a subpoena for the document, citing oversight responsibilities after a whistleblower raised concerns about the FBI’s inadequate investigation of the informant’s allegations.
Facing imminent charges of contempt of Congress, Wray reached an agreement with Comer, allowing all members of the Oversight Committee, including Greene and Boebert, to review the documents. In exchange, Comer agreed to withdraw the charges against Wray.
