News broke on Monday that the House Oversight Committee plans to initiate contempt of Congress proceedings against FBI Director Christopher Wray on Thursday.
But that was just the opening salvo in the high-stakes drama over what will become of the FBI’s purported criminal investigation into the Bidens and the matter of a hidden FBI informant document with the potential to take down the presidency.
Following a House Oversight meeting this afternoon, Representative Anna Luna (R-FL) revealed that the FBI is deeply concerned about the safety of a whistleblower who possesses sensitive information about the Biden family. The FBI purportedly fears that if the whistleblower’s identity is revealed, they could face serious harm or even death.
Just left meeting for House Oversight. The @FBI is afraid their informant will be killed if unmasked, based on the info he has brought forward about the Biden family.

“Just left meeting for House Oversight,” Rep. Luna said on Twitter. “The @FBI is afraid their informant will be killed if unmasked, based on the info he has brought forward about the Biden family.
Just hours ago, Oversight Chair James Comer confirmed that the FBI had refused to release a document related to an alleged bribery scheme, despite reportedly agreeing to do so just days earlier. This decision has sparked widespread outrage and led Comer and the Committee to pursue contempt of Congress proceedings.
The whistleblower, described as a “highly credible” FBI confidential source, has been actively involved in various investigations since the Obama administration.
The document in question allegedly outlines a $5 million international bribery scheme involving Biden during his tenure as vice president and a foreign national. The FBI’s refusal to disclose the document has raised concerns about the agency’s transparency and has fueled suspicions of partisanship within one of the largest government agencies.
The contempt of Congress process is a federal misdemeanor invoked when an individual, in this case, FBI Director Wray, is accused of failing to comply with a subpoena or to cooperate with a congressional inquiry. On Thursday. the House Oversight Committee will initiate proceedings against the FBI director.
The FBI has refused to comply with @RepJamesComer’s subpoena.
On Thursday, our committee will vote on holding FBI Director Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress as a result.

In separate but related news, a once-missing Biden whistleblower has resurfaced after fleeing from authorities. Gal Luft, the witness considered “missing” in the House Oversight Committee’s investigation into alleged corruption involving the Biden family, has come forward to The Post, stating that he is alive and currently living as a fugitive in an undisclosed location.
He reportedly would not say how he escaped because, “I don’t want to get people in trouble.”
Authorities had discovered Luft’s abandoned car near the airport, adding to the intrigue surrounding his disappearance.
Luft, a former Israeli Defense Force colonel, disappeared from Cyprus last month while on bail and facing extradition to the United States on seven charges. However, he vehemently denies these allegations, which include five charges related to the Arms Export Control Act, alleging his involvement in a conspiracy to sell Chinese products to the United Arab Emirates, Kenya, and Libya. Additionally, he is accused of violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act and making a false statement.
According to Luft, he chose to skip bail due to what he claims is political persecution by the United States, alleging that it is an attempt to shield Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and his brother Jim from scrutiny. Luft insists that he is innocent of all charges.
“The chances of me getting a fair trial in Washington are virtually zero,” he said in a call from an undisclosed foreign country, explaining why he skipped bail. “I had to do what I had to do.”
House Oversight investigators were preparing to interview Luft before he disappeared.
“When it was clear the Republicans are going to win the House or the Senate, all of a sudden comes [GOP Rep. James] Comer and [GOP Rep. Jim] Jordan and the game is changing. There will be questions and subpoenas and investigations [so] they [the administration] have to discredit me. I never thought of coming forward. Through 2020 I sat quiet like a fish,” he said.
“I didn’t want to get caught up in this game, but when they arrested me, I had no choice but to blow it up,” he added.
Although Luft made bombshell allegations against the Bidens, he claims to have never heard from the FBI or prosecutors again until his arrest in Cyprus.
