Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, told Newsmax that the FBI ought not to invoke political bias when it comes to investigating Hunter Biden, or it could face Congressional oversight after the midterms, likely in a Republican-led committee.

Sessions' comment comes in light of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, announcing earlier on Newsmax that whistleblowers had informed him that a "very liberal, very partisan," man in the FBI dubbed "T-Bo" acted in a biased manner when he decided not to open an investigation into Hunter Biden, despite opening one on former President Donald Trump.

Speaking with "Saturday Report," Sessions said lawmakers were giving the FBI an opportunity to "properly, carefully, lawfully proceed under the law" to investigate Hunter. The congressman noted that if the FBI appears to act in a biased manner, then they could face Congressional oversight after the midterms.

"It diminishes the view that the American people have of the confidence in these organizations," Sessions said of the FBI acting on behalf of political interests. "And as you know, my father was director of the FBI under President Reagan, under President Bush, and then under President Clinton. He was fired by President Clinton because the president wanted that job to be political. He wanted someone who would be political in that role."

Earlier this week, Grassley noted that the FBI official, known as "T-Bo," was moved out of his position and has since been replaced.
