Pressure continues to mount on President Biden as the details of an alleged pay-for-play bribery scheme between him and a former Burisma executive.
Continued scrutiny over the shocking scandal culminated in Biden blowing up at a New York Post reporter during a press conference on Thursday, calling his question ‘dumb’.
The reporter asked why an FBI informant who was identified in documents released to Congress this week repeatedly called Biden the ‘big guy’.
The same terminology is used in emails that were leaked from Hunter Biden’s laptop in the runup to the 2020 election, emails that were censored and labeled Russian ‘misinformation’ by a slew of intelligence officials.
The FD-1023 form, which was unclassified, detailed a conversation that the FBI had with a ‘highly credible’ informant who spoke to a Burisma executive detailing the bribery scandal between Burisma and Biden, who was reportedly paid $5 million by a Burisma executive.
The House Oversight Committee finally received the document after a protracted fight between Oversight Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., and FBI Director Christopher Wray, who only handed the documents over after he was threatened with Contempt of Congress charges.
The White House has continued to maintain that President Biden is not involved in his son’s business dealings despite mounting evidence to the contrary.

President Biden lashed out at a reporter Thursday who asked why the FBI document alleging a criminal bribery scheme between him and a foreign national referred to him as “the Big Guy.”
“Why did the Ukraine FBI informant file refer to you as the ‘Big Guy’, President Biden? Why is that term continuously applied?” New York Post reporter Steven Nelson asked Biden following his remarks at an event.
“Why do you ask such a dumb question?” Biden responded before staff ushered press out of the room.
According to a source familiar with the FBI-generated FD-1023 form, a confidential human source told the FBI in a June 2020 interview that Biden, while serving as vice president, was paid $5 million by an executive of the Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings, where his son Hunter Biden sat on the board.
