The FBI is said to have maintained more than 40 confidential human sources on criminal matters relating to the Biden family, according to Senator Chuck Grassley.
In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Grassley said that the sources had been managed by different FBI field offices and supplied the bureau with details of potential crimes by Hunter, James and President Joe Biden.
According to the letter seen by DailyMail.com, Grassley learned that an FBI task force within the Washington Field Office sought to, and managed to, successfully shut down reporting from those sources by falsely discrediting the information.
Grassley wrote in his letter: ‘Allegations from multiple Justice Department whistleblowers indicate there is, and has been, an effort among certain Justice Department and FBI officials to improperly delay and stop full and complete investigative activity into the Biden family.’
The Senator also said that in at least one case, a source and its information was vetted by numerous U.S. attorney’s offices, which found ‘no hits’ to Russian sources.

Grassley continued: ‘Based on the information provided to my office over a period of years by multiple credible whistleblowers, there appears to be an effort within the Justice Department and FBI to shut down investigative activity relating to the Biden family.
‘Such decisions point to significant political bias infecting the decision-making of not only the Attorney General and FBI Director, but also line agents and prosecutors.
‘Our Republic cannot survive such a political infection and you have an obligation to this country to clear the air.’
Grassley also spoke of how whistleblower allegations in 2020 about Hunter Biden’s ‘criminal financial and related activity’ that was shut down based on ‘false assertions’ that it was foreign disinformation.
One critical point that Grassley makes in his letter refers to a human source who alleged a bribery scheme between then Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden and the founder and CEO of Burisma Holdings Mykola Zlochevsky.
The source told the bureau that the father and son had ‘coerced’ Zlochevsky to pay them millions of dollars in exchange for their help in getting a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma, Viktor Shokin, fired.
The White House has strenuously denied these allegations, despite Shokin going publicly and saying the two had a part to play in his dismissal.
In his letter, Grassley revealed that in December 2019, the FBI Washington Field Office closed a 205B Kleptocracy case into Zlochevsky.
The case had originally been opened in January 2016 by a Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Squad based in the same office, which is also a squad that includes agents from FBI headquarters.
