House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., is set to get his hands on a subpoenaed document that the FBI has dragged its feet on handing over, highlighting a victory in House Republicans’ ongoing investigation into an alleged bribery scheme involving Joe Biden.

According to a report from Fox News, the FBI is slated to bring the subpoenaed FD-1023 form to Capitol Hill on Monday for the committee to review.

As reported by RSBN, Comer had previously threatened to hold FBI Director Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress for his ongoing refusal to hand over the document.

Comer previously warned, “The FBI is not above Congress. I will protect congressional oversight authorities.”

Per Fox, both Comer and ranking member Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., will review the form, which includes sensitive information related to communications between FBI agents and their confidential sources.

“Did the FBI even investigate the FBI-generated record alleging a criminal scheme involving then-VP Joe Biden and a foreign national?” Comer wrote on Twitter last week. “FBI Director Wray hasn’t provided an answer. Americans deserve the truth, and @GOPoversight will continue to demand transparency. @FoxBusiness[.]”
