Rep. Darrell Issa, a Republican from California who serves as a congressional investigator, has issued a call to whistleblowers to step forward in light of the recent arrest of Gal Luft, co-director of the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security. Luft was detained in Cyprus on an Interpol warrant. However, he has claimed that his arrest is an act of “political revenge” for providing the FBI with information that could implicate Joe Biden in relation to his family’s business dealings with a Chinese energy firm, just prior to the 2020 election. Luft asserts that the information he provided was incriminating.
