During a speech on the Senate Floor, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) disclosed that a Burisma executive, implicated in an alleged bribery scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden, possesses 17 audio recordings of conversations as an “insurance policy.”

The revelation came from an FBI form, labeled 1023, which contains redacted information indicating that the executive has 15 audio recordings of phone calls with Hunter Biden and two audio recordings of calls with then-Vice President Biden.

According to Grassley, these recordings were purportedly kept by the foreign national as a safeguard in case of difficult circumstances. The 1023 form also suggests a potential connection between Vice President Biden and Burisma’s employment of Hunter Biden.

Highlighting the differential treatment of the Biden family, Grassley noted that the Justice Department and the FBI seem to lack the same level of scrutiny applied to former President Trump. Grassley emphasized the need for the complete disclosure of the 1023 document to ensure transparency, hold the responsible agencies accountable, and empower congressional oversight over an executive branch perceived as politically influenced.

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene previously revealed that two payments of $5 million each were made to Biden family members, as indicated in the 1023. The document allegedly demonstrates that Hunter Biden was hired by Burisma with the intention of resolving their issues, and that the payments were part of a bribery scheme to terminate an investigation into the company and dismiss Prosecutor Shokin.

Grassley and others are calling for the release of the full 1023 to the American public, highlighting that previous 1023s have been made public in the past, making such a request reasonable.
