(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Jason Jones, FBI general counsel had sent a message to a former supervisory agent heading the investigation into Hunter Biden, informing him that there were certain questions that the House Oversight Committee would ask that he was expected not to answer.
The redacted letter from the FBI general counsel was obtained by the New York Post. In it, Jones specifically instructs the former agent that the FBI was expecting that he would not be answering questions that related to non-public information which were covered by executive privilege or other confidentiality interests.
This message specifically related to investigations or deliberations that were ongoing. Jones had proceeded to instruct that the agent should redirect all those questions to the FBI’s Office of Congressional Affairs.
While the letter did not outright mention them, it did allude to the case concerning Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son, which was ongoing at the time. Last month, Hunter Biden entered a plea deal in regard to his tax violations.
In 2020 it was first reported that Hunter Biden was subpoenaed by the FBI for a laptop and hard drive which included information on a money-laundering investigation in late 2019. In December of that same year, after the 2020 presidential election, Biden had admitted publicly that there was an ongoing investigation relating to his taxes. At the time he had claimed that this was a matter he was taking seriously and that he would show that he had legally handled his affairs according to the advice he received from his tax advisers.
