Scott Brady, a Trump-appointed US Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, informed the House Judiciary Committee that his office had found credible evidence during its early probe of Hunter Biden’s work with Burisma Holdings and Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky.
As such, criminal referrals were made to three different US Attorney’s offices in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Delaware; however, Brady revealed that his office was met with resistance throughout the investigation.
He also disclosed that the FBI had kept the existence of Hunter Biden’s laptop from his 2020 inquiry even though it had been in their possession since 2019.
“It was a challenging working relationship,” Scott Brady said of the FBI in his testimony to the House Judiciary that was reviewed by Just the News.
“I think there was reluctance on the part of the FBI to really do any tasking related to our assignment from DAG Rosen and looking into allegations of Ukrainian corruption broadly and then specifically anything that intersected with Hunter Biden and his role in Burisma. It was very challenging.”
The FBI also hid the fact that they were even aware of Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Excerpt from Just the News:
In bombshell testimony, the federal prosecutor who initially probed the Biden family’s dealings in Ukraine told Congress his team had corroborated enough of an FBI informant’s claim of an alleged bribery scheme involving Joe Biden to merit further investigation but he encountered unprecedented foot-dragging and “reluctance” inside both the FBI and the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s office that took over the case, Just the News has learned.
Former Pittsburgh U.S. Attorney Scott Brady revealed to the House Judiciary Committee that his team found enough credible evidence in its initial review of Hunter Biden’s dealings with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings and possible corruption by Joe Biden to refer criminal matters to three separate U.S. Attorney’s offices in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Delaware for further investigation.
Brady was critical of the FBI, noting the bureau never told his office it had Hunter Biden’s laptop and had corroborated its contents even as DOJ prosecutors investigated the Ukraine allegations.
“I would have thought that would be something, especially as has been publicly reported, there’s information relating to Hunter Biden’s activities on the board of Burisma in Ukraine, that might have been helpful in our assessment of the information that we were receiving about him. I would have expected that be shared,” he said.
On Wednesday, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) revealed that the FBI received ‘criminal information’ from over 40 confidential human sources on Joe, Hunter, and James Biden – dating back to Joe Biden’s time as Vice President.
