White House Declines Comment On New Whistleblower Claim
The National Security Council spokesman for the White House, John Kirby, refused to comment on a whistleblower allegation about President Joe Biden.
Kirby declined to comment on a House Oversight Committee subpoena concerning President Biden.
The refusal came during a Thursday White House press briefing.
"Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre announced it would the last question for Kirby, who was asked by a reporter about the House Oversight Committee seeking a 2020 FBI document," reported Fox News. "The committee says a whistleblower alleges that the FBI and Justice Department have a document revealing a criminal scheme involving President Biden and a foreign national."
"I'm gonna have to refer you to the Justice Department on that," Kirby replied to the question. "I have nothing for you on that today."
Allegedly, the subpoenaed document relates to a criminal scheme that President Biden has been involved in which includes the exchange of money for policy decisions.
Kirby was pressed once more and responded negatively again.
"I have nothing for you, sir. I'm gonna have to refer you to the Justice Department," Kirby said before exiting the podium.
"A whistleblower is alleging that the FBI and the Justice Department are in possession of a document that describes a criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden and a foreign national relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer. R-Ky., and Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said Wednesday," reported Fox News.
According to the whistleblower, the document "includes a precise description of how the alleged criminal scheme was employed as well as its purpose."
