President Joe Biden and his son Hunter are the subject of far more corruption allegations, according to the chairman of a House Republican committee.
James Comer, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability (R-Ky.), provided Newsmax with an update on the panel’s ongoing investigations into the president and his family regarding alleged influence-peddling schemes on Saturday. Comer claimed that GOP investigators have been successful in gathering a wealth of new information involving money transfers from a number of additional nations.
“We have bank records that came in this week that we’re going through that we think are going to show more [money wire transfers] from more countries,” Comer said. “Remember, we just disclosed two countries thus far: China and Romania. There are still some more Chinese wires that we have yet to present to the American people.
“And there are a lot of wires, mysterious wires from Ukraine and Russia, that we’re about to expose. So, this is just the beginning for the Bidens. All the Department of Justice is doing is standing in our way,” he said, adding that despite all of the obstacles being put up by various federal agencies, including the FBI, “we are still producing results every day that shows this family, the president of the United States’ family, has received millions and millions of dollars from our adversaries all over the world, and they can’t explain why.”
“They can’t explain what they did to produce that money,” he noted further.
Additionally, he singled out Attorney General Merrick Garland and accused him of undermining public confidence in his office through overtly politicized cases and inquiries.
“He just stood up and lied to the American people,” Comer told “Eric Bolling The Balance.” “Merrick Garland has destroyed the reputation of the Justice cabinet. He has destroyed the reputation of justice in America. He needs to go.
“There’s no way he could defend the indefensible by saying that he has treated Democrats in the same manner that he has treated Republicans, specifically the way he treated the president of the United States’ son.”
Comer reported earlier this month that recently discovered emails between Hunter Biden and his associates in the Obama White House seem to call into question the president’s assertions that he was unaware of his son’s business operations when he was vice president.
“Hunter Biden and his then-business partners were in frequent communication with top aides in the Obama administration while Joe Biden was vice president, according to emails that the National Archives recently released to the conservative group America First Legal. House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), who is leading a sweeping investigation into the Biden family, told the Washington Examiner that the emails further how Joe Biden has repeatedly ‘lied to the American people when he said he had no knowledge of his son’s business dealings,’” the Washington Examiner reported.
“We know Hunter Biden’s business associates visited the White House numerous times during the Obama-Biden administration, and now-unearthed emails reveal Hunter Biden and his associates sought access to the White House and official government events,” Comer said. “The House Oversight Committee will continue to follow the Bidens’ complex financial transactions to determine the extent of their influence peddling schemes to determine if President Biden is compromised and our national security is threatened.”
In their investigation, The Examiner also stated: “Comer’s remarks come after a handful of Republican members of Congress raised concerns over the unearthed emails to the Washington Examiner on Thursday, with Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) alleging that the “Biden family’s corruption” is ‘far worse than Watergate.’ The emails, as well as records on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop that were reviewed by the Washington Examiner, show Hunter Biden’s longtime business partner Eric Schwerin contacted top aides for Joe Biden to see if an associate could attend a 2010 State Department lunch with Chinese government officials.”
“The American people deserve answers, transparency, and accountability,” Comer also told the Washington Examiner.
