Pittsburgh FBI agents told the Delaware office they had corroborated multiple facts in FD-1023

The Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) Pittsburgh office allegedly provided a briefing to the Delaware U.S. attorney's office on an unclassified FBI document. This document contained confidential information from a human source regarding an alleged foreign bribery scheme involving former Vice President Joe Biden. The FBI stated that it had partially confirmed some of the claims made in the document.

According to the mentioned document, a form FD-1023, it detailed a scheme involving the CEO of Burisma, Mykola Zlochevsky. As per the document, Zlochevsky hired Hunter Biden, who is now the first son, to serve on the board of Burisma. The motive behind this hiring was to secure Joe Biden's support in shutting down an investigation by then-Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was looking into corruption allegations surrounding the company. Zlochevsky allegedly paid both Bidens $5 million each. Joe Biden has publicly taken credit for the removal of Shokin from his position.

As we discussed on the show last night, Margo Cleveland at The Federalist reported that the Pittsburgh FBI office, citing an individual with knowledge of the briefing, has corroborated several details in the document. The travel records of the confidential human source confirmed that the source had indeed visited the locations mentioned in the document, where the alleged meetings took place. Additionally, the handler of the source reportedly verified the source's claim of having met with Oleksandr Ostapenko, a key individual in the Burisma scandal.

During the briefing, the FBI reportedly informed the U.S. attorney David Weiss that they had corroborated the aforementioned details, as reported by The Federalist.

Former Attorney General William Barr previously stated that authorities in Pennsylvania reviewed the FD-1023 and forwarded it to U.S. Attorney Weiss in Delaware. Weiss was overseeing an investigation into Hunter Biden at the time. However, two whistleblowers from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) who were involved in that case testified that they never saw the document in question.

It remains unclear what actions, if any, Weiss took following the receipt of the information that the FBI claimed to have at least partially confirmed. Nonetheless, the Department of Justice announced on Monday its intention to allow Weiss to testify before the House Judiciary Committee.
