CIA Finds GOP’s Whistleblower Allegation in Biden Impeachment Inquiry ‘False’

The CIA denied on Thursday the claims of a whistleblower that the agency attempted to obstruct a federal probe against President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, dealing a setback to House Republicans’ impeachment investigation into the president.

In March, the chairs of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer, R-Ky., and the House Judiciary Committee, Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, wrote to the CIA claiming that they had received information from a whistleblower that the agency had prevented IRS and Department of Justice investigators from speaking with a supporter of Hunter Biden.

In a letter acquired and delivered to the chairs on Thursday, the CIA referred to the accusation as “false.”

“Without confirming or denying the existence of any associations for communications, CIA did not prevent or seek to prevent IRS or DOJ from conducting any such interview. The allegation is false,” James Catella, director of congressional affairs at the CIA, wrote.
