Democratic New York Rep. Jerry Nadler wants to unleash the Department of Justice (DOJ) on a former U.S. attorney who recommended in 2020 that the department further investigate claims made by an FBI source alleging that a Ukrainian energy company bribed Hunter and Joe Biden.

Nadler, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, wrote to Attorney General Merrick Garland and Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Thursday requesting that the DOJ open an investigation into former U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania Scott Brady.

In October 2023, Brady testified to lawmakers that he found the FBI source’s claims about Burisma executives discussing massive bribe payments to the Biden family to be potentially credible enough to warrant further investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware — run at the time by now-special counsel David Weiss —  in 2020.
