0 2

Top Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee wrote a letter to former FBI Agent Timothy Thibault on Friday, warning him to keep all documents related to his work on the Hunter Biden investigation.

“Whistleblowers have come to Congress alleging that you were part of a plan to undermine and discredit allegations of criminal misconduct by members of the Biden family. Accordingly, we believe that you have information related to our investigation and we request your assistance in our investigation,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the highest-ranking member of the committee, in the report obtained by The Post.

“You must take this Retention Statement as an instruction to take all reasonable steps to prevent the destruction or alteration, intentionally or negligently, of all documents, communications and other information, including electronic information and metadata, that respond or may respond to this congressional investigation,” the letter continued.

The letter is co-signed by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-California), another senior member of the committee.

Timothy Thibault resigned from the FBI last August.

In October 2020, Thibault ordered an investigation into the alleged “criminal financial and related activity” of Hunter Biden, an agency whistleblower, to be closed. told Sen. Chuck Grassley in July.

Post columnist Miranda Devine reported that Thibault was assigned as the agency’s “point man” to lead Hunter Biden’s business partner Tony Bobulinski — whose revelations about the first son were also ignored by the agency.

Thibault resigned from the FBI in August. FBI Director Christopher Wray said the allegations against Thibault were “deeply disturbing”.

“Thibault is apparently involved in every whistleblower investigation. He’s implicated in the Hunter Biden scandal, the Jan. 6 investigation, and even Joe Biden’s false quest to tackle “extremism” in the United States. If Republicans get the majority, he will be a top target for congressional investigations, and this custody statement is the first step to doing just that,” one person close to Jordan told The Post.

The notice to Thibault almost certainly suggests he will be the target of a wider House investigation into Hunter Biden, which has been promised by Republicans if they retake the chamber in November’s midterm elections.
