BREAKING: House Oversight Committee to hold FBI director Chris Wray in contempt of Congress-

• by Libby Emmons

The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability has demanded that the FBI release documents pertaining to an alleged bribery scheme during Joe Biden's VP term under President Barack Obama, and the FBI has since refused to comply.

"Oversight Committee will now take steps to hold FBI Director Wray in contempt of Congress," reads a statement from the Committee.

The Committee issued a subpoena compelling the FBI to turn over those documents, and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday morning threatened FBI director Christopher Wray with charges of contempt of Congress were he not to turn over the requested materials.

Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) said that the FBI's refusal is "obstructionist and unacceptable."
