In a blistering revelation on the Senate floor, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, alleged that a Ukrainian energy company executive linked to the Bidens held secret recordings of the former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter as “insurance.”
Grassley claimed that the executive, affiliated with Burisma Holdings, holds 17 recordings, two of which include Joe Biden personally speaking. The rest allegedly involve his son, Hunter Biden. These accusations present a potentially devastating revelation about the Biden family, which has been at the center of a storm over alleged international corruption.

Grassley’s speech highlighted the supposed double standard in the Justice Department’s treatment of the Biden family compared to its approach towards former President Donald Trump. He said, “Based on the facts known to the Congress and the public, it’s clear that the Justice Department, the FBI, haven’t nearly had the same laser focus on the Biden family.”
These claims further the narrative that the Biden family may have exploited political influence for personal gain. Republicans have been building a case alleging that the Bidens sold political favors as part of a corrupt scheme.

According to Grassley, the Burisma executive maintained these secret recordings as an “insurance policy,” a safeguard in a predicament. The allegations, if true, point to potentially manipulative strategies within global politics.
Grassley’s stance on the issue is clear as he questions the intent of U.S. Attorney Weiss, asking, “Well, what is U.S. Attorney Weiss doing with respect to these alleged Joe and Hunter Biden recordings that are apparently relevant to the high-stakes bribery scheme?”
Despite the seriousness of these allegations, Grassley stated that the Justice Department and FBI have not shown the same zeal in their investigation into the Biden family as they have for Trump. The former President faced charges related to holding documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort, and the probe against him was undoubtedly comprehensive.
The report about Biden’s alleged bribery scheme was first brought to light in 2017. Still, the FBI file scrutinized by House lawmakers last week was created in June 2020, following renewed interest. The document reportedly accuses the Bidens of receiving $10 million in 2015 and 2016 in exchange for advocating for removing Ukrainian prosecutor general Viktor Shokin.
Grassley’s comments raise questions about the integrity of the Justice Department’s investigative practices, particularly concerning cases involving political figures. “Congress still lacks a full and complete picture with respect to what that document really says. That’s why it’s important that the document be made public without unnecessary redactions,” Grassley asserted.
Ultimately, Grassley’s declaration underscores the need for transparency, not just for political accountability but also for the confidence of the American people. How this will play out in the broader political landscape remains to be seen.
“We owe it to the American people and the brave and heroic whistleblowers to continue to fight for transparency in this matter and make this document public without unnecessary redactions,” Grassley concluded.
