On Thursday night, as former president Donald Trump announced that the Justice Department intended to indict him on charges relating to his possession of secret information, a Republican senator delivered a bombshell during an appearance with Fox News.
The House Oversight Committee member and Republican representative from Florida, Anna Paulina Luna, issued a warning on Twitter on Tuesday, writing that “the FBI is afraid their informant will be killed if unmasked, based on the info he has brought forward about the Biden family.”
The FD-1023 form, which contains claims that President Joe Biden took part in an illegal bribery scheme while serving as vice president, is the subject of an ongoing dispute between the FBI and the Oversight Committee. At the time she tweeted the tweet, this argument was still going on. James Comer, the chairman of the committee and a Republican from Kentucky, has maintained that the FBI had informed him that the material was related to a current investigation.
During an interview with Jesse Watters of Fox News, Luna followed up on her tweet and provided some further information.
“Not only does that tell me that the FBI is not even competent within themselves to protect a witness, but also too, I mean, the evidence that they have — that they had previous to 2020 — is so good that they do believe that this person has a credible fear for their life. So, it’s very alarming,” she said.
Watters questioned the FBI’s decision not to safeguard the source, to which Luna said, “You know, that’s a question that we asked ourselves.”
She went on to explain: “The FBI has moles within the FBI that are actively leaking information to the Biden family, specifically Hunter Biden. You know, it was brought to our attention that there was, I guess, a mole within the FBI by the name of ‘One-Eye’ that was updating Hunter on what was currently taking place.
“So it’s in my opinion that the FBI: one, is definitely not something that we trust as House oversight; but also, two, that they have an issue within their own institutions with accountability and leaks,” she continued.
The claims about “One-Eye” come from Miranda Devine’s reporting on Hunter Biden as a columnist for the New York Post.
Dr. Gal Luft, a former lieutenant colonel in the Israel Defense Forces, claimed earlier this year that he had knowledge of “One-Eye” before the man was apprehended in Cyprus on suspicion of smuggling guns. However, a recent report suggests that Luft has jumped bail while awaiting extradition to the United States. Luft has refuted these allegations.
In order to silence him regarding his knowledge of the Bidens, Luft claims that the Department of Justice politically instigated his arrest. He claimed to have learned details from Hunter Biden’s Chinese business partners, Patrick Ho and Ye Jianming, and he implied that they had paid the Bidens money in exchange for access to details about “One-Eye.” Luft added that he was made aware of the FBI’s inquiry into Ho and Ye.

The NY Post reports:
“One-Eye” told Ye that the Southern District of New York was investigating him and/or Ho in late 2017, and that “an Asian, an African, and a Jewish guy” were named on a sealed indictment, says Henoch.
Soon after that tipoff, Ye offered Hunter $1 million to be his “private counsel” and flew to China, leaving his wife, daughter, son, mother, and nanny in his $50 million penthouse at 15 Central Park West.
He was detained in Shanghai three months later and disappeared.
Luft said that he and his lawyer had a meeting at the American embassy in Brussels in 2019 with four FBI agents and two DOJ prosecutors to discuss the alleged deal. He asserted that he did not hear from them once more before to his detention.
Luft claims that his arrest was planned as a cover-up to prevent the Bidens from learning the information he has. His reasoning for skipping bail and leaving Cyprus was that “the chances of me getting a fair trial in Washington are virtually zero.”
