Eighty-three percent of voters believe the FBI should make public its informant file that alleges President Joe Biden accepted a $5 million bribe from Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky, the founder of Burisma Holdings, a recent Harvard/HarrisX poll found.

The poll asked respondents, “Do you think that the FBI report from an informant alleging that Joe Biden took a $5 million bribe while he was Vice President should be made public or kept secret by the FBI?”

On the evening of September 24, 2019, Democratic Speaker of the House from California, Nancy Pelosi announced that six committees of the House of Representatives would undertake a formal impeachment inquiry against President Trump. The impeachment inquiry has been initiated following a whistleblower complaint over allegedly dealings of US President Donald J. Trump with Ukraine. The whistleblower report claimed that President Trump had "pressured" Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky during a July 2019 phone call to launch investigations into the actions of former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and involvement of his son Hunter Biden in the Burisma Holdings Company. In 2014 Hunter Biden , the son of then-US vice president Joe Biden was appointed to the board of Burisma Holdings, as Wikipedia webpage reported.

Overall, 83 percent said the FBI should make the file public, while only 17 percent say it should be kept secret.

Among partisans, 74 percent of Democrats, 82 percent of independents, and 92 percent of Republicans said the file should be public.

The poll also asked respondents, “Do you think that the FBI is fully investigation corruption allegations against Joe Biden, or is the FBI not really investigating them?”

Only 45 percent of voters said the FBI is fully investigating the allegations. A majority (55 percent) said the bureau is not really investigating.

The poll sampled 2,090 registered voters from June 14-15. The margin of error was not provided.

On Sunday, House Oversight Chair James Comer (R-KY) told Fox News’s Mark Levin that Republicans must stick together to take action against the FBI, an agency Comer often characterizes as stonewalling his probe in the Biden family.

“We have to stick together to defund this FBI building,” Comer said. “We cannot reward the FBI with a new state of the art building that is bigger than the Pentagon. This agency needs to be reformed.”

“We’ll have to do it with the power of the purse,” he added.

The FBI provided Congress with an FBI informant document that alleged Joe Biden accepted a $5 million bribe from Zlochevsky earlier this month. According to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the document said Zlochevsky also kept 17 audio recordings of his conversations with Joe and Hunter Biden as an “insurance policy.”

Comer believes the FBI took little to no action on the informant’s information. The stonewalling triggered Comer to issue two more bank subpoenas last week, along with a demand for Devon Archer to testify. Archer is a convicted felon, Biden family business associate, and Hunter Biden’s “best friend in business.”
