Missing Congressional Informant Resurfaces With New DOJ Allegations

Republican lawmakers have been introducing new evidence, particularly in the form of whistleblower allegations, that President Joe Biden and members of his family have been involved in various corrupt activities.

Earlier this year, however, the House Oversight Committee signaled that it had lost contact with one source poised to reveal new claims about the Biden family.

“Well, unfortunately, we can’t track down the informant,” said Rep. James Comer (R-KY), the committee’s chairman, in May. “We’re hopeful that the informant is still there. The whistleblower knows the informant. The whistleblower is very credible.”

This week, reports indicated that the informant reappeared, offering a damning allegation that he sent the Justice Department and the FBI evidence of corruption in the weeks before Biden announced he would be running for president in the 2020 election.

The whistleblower, identified as Israeli professor Dr. Gal Luft, reportedly served as an adviser to a Chinese energy firm engaged in a lucrative deal with Hunter Biden. He claimed in a video statement that he met with a team of representatives from the DOJ and FBI in Belgium in March 2019 and offered to provide evidence of corruption related to the Biden family.

“After Brussels, I never heard back from the DOJ, but instead of showing appreciation for my whistle-blowing, I became public enemy number one,” Luft asserted. “Over the past four years that followed, me, my family, my friends, my associates were all harassed, intimidated, and, finally, I was prosecuted.”

He was arrested in the island nation of Cyprus earlier this year and says he is currently living in hiding in fear of extradition to the United States and a potential 100-year prison sentence if he is convicted.

“While I was detained in Cyprus, I was portrayed in the international media as an arms dealer, even though I never traded a bullet in my entire life,” he added. “In fact, nowhere in my indictment, the DOJ claimed or presented the evidence that I bought, sold, shipped, or financed any weapons.”

Luft vehemently denies the charges against him and wants the Justice Department to make all of the evidence against him — including the indictment — public.
