Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said allegations from FBI whistleblowers show there’s a “political infection” within the bureau following the agency’s unprecedented raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida home.

In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Grassley demanded information about alleged bias among high-ranking officials.

“Starting on May 31, 2022, I’ve written three letters to you regarding political bias that has infected the FBI’s Washington Field Office,” Grassley wrote Aug. 17 (pdf).

“Two of those letters provided specific and credible allegations based on numerous whistleblowers that have approached my office with information that one can only conclude is indicative of a deeply rooted political infection that has spread to investigative activity into former President Trump and Hunter Biden.”

Hunter Biden is the son of President Joe Biden.

The letter states that the FBI approved an investigation into Trump’s campaign but simultaneously “shut down investigative activity and sources, which included verified and verifiable information, relating to Hunter Biden.”

Whistleblower allegations emerged about FBI supervisory intelligence agent Brian Auten opening an assessment in August 2020 that was used to incorrectly label information about Hunter Biden’s son as false, according to Grassley’s latest letter.

“The FBI has not refuted these serious allegations,” he told Wray. “Thus far, the FBI has failed to address the concerns that I’ve raised and failed to produce the requested records.”

Later, the senator wrote that he wants to see an organizational breakdown of the Washington Field Office to see who’s staffed and responsible for the investigations.

“As you are aware, Assistant Special Agent in Charge Tim Thibault is not the only politically biased FBI agent at the Washington Field Office,” Grassley wrote.

Previously, Thibault was flagged by Grassley for sharing a Twitter post calling Trump “a psychologically broken, embittered, and deeply unhappy man.”
