Kash Patel and Jan Jekielek
[PREMIERING 8PM ET] Kash Patel: It’s Time to Fence the FBI’s Money and Force Them to Release Document on Biden Family Dealings
June 2, 2023
The FBI has repeatedly declined a request from House Oversight Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) to hand over an internal document detailing an alleged “criminal scheme” involving President Joe Biden’s family. Rep. Comer says he’s going to move forward on holding FBI Director Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress. What Congress should do, says Kash Patel, is to fence the money of the FBI. “There’s a fencing process on Capitol Hill. Without getting into all the details … you can just imagine an imaginary fence goes around a big pile of money, and Congress has the lock and key. And if the FBI wants their big pile of money in this fence, they have to comply with a request from Congress, i.e. give us the document unredacted.” We also discuss former FBI Director James Comey’s response to the Durham report and recent news that the DOJ has charged two alleged Chinese agents for a bribery scheme targeting Falun Gong practitioners in the United States. The suspected Chinese agents bribed what they thought was an IRS official—actually an FBI undercover agent—with thousands of dollars, and promised $50,000 more, in an attempt to strip the tax-exempt status of an entity run by Falun Gong practitioners, according to court filings.

Kash Patel is most well-known for his work on the House Intelligence Committee, leading Congressman Devin Nunes’s investigation into allegations of Trump–Russia collusion. A former Justice Department terrorism prosecutor, he was personally recruited by Nunes, and he would play a critical role uncovering the FBI’s abuses and beyond, a major scandal later dubbed “Spygate.” But beyond that, Kash Patel has held key roles across a large swath of America’s national security apparatus.

He also served as the right-hand man to the Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell, chief of staff to Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, and was at one point the presidential aide responsible for the nuclear football.
