U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) shared on Monday that the Burisma executive who allegedly paid Joe and Hunter Biden in a pay-to-play criminal scheme kept 17 audio recordings from his conversations with them as an “insurance policy”. Grassley cited the FBI’s FD-1023 form that congressional lawmakers had been recently briefed on when divulging the information.
Rogan O’Handley shared the news on Twitter:

Senator Grassley along with House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) have been persistent in getting the form to Capitol Hill.
Two of the 17 audio records are of phone calls between the executive and then Vice President Biden. The other 15 are from phone calls with Hunter Biden.
Grassley has pushed for the document to be made public without redaction for the American people to see.
“The 1023 produced to that House Committee redacted reference that the foreign national who allegedly bribed Joe and Hunter Biden allegedly has audio recordings of his conversations with them.17 total recordings,” Grassley stated.
“According to the 1023, the foreign national possesses 15 audio recordings of phone calls between him and Hunter Biden. According to the 1023, the foreign national possesses two audio recordings of phone calls between him and then-Vice President Joe Biden.”
Grassley added the executive, “allegedly kept as a sort of insurance policy for the foreign national in case he got into a tight spot.”
Grassley went on and asked, “What if anything has the Justice Department and FBI done to investigate? The Justice Department and FBI must show their work. They no longer deserve the benefit of the doubt.”
Grassley and other Republicans on Capitol Hill are working to make sure that the FBI is being held accountable and actually investigating the possible Biden family criminal activity.
