Representative James Comer (R-KY), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, recently was interviewed on Fox News and gave an update on how his investigation into the allegations of corrupt business deals of the Biden family was going. He summarized his statements in a Twitter post that “[i]t doesn’t look good for @POTUS.”
His full Twitter statement was “I now have access to the Biden family’s suspicious activity reports from @USTreasury. I have also subpoenaed Biden family band records. And Biden family associates connected to the schemes are talking to @GOPoversight. It doesn’t look good for @POTUS.”
That post had the video of the interview attached to it. The video starts with the host asking Mr. Comer about various business associates who have agreed to come forward. The host then asked if the associates coming forward would lead to new revelations.
Comer responded by saying that “[t]he associates want to tell their story and they have been left out to dry by their association with Hunter Biden. If you look at everyone who has ever been in business with a Biden whether it be Hunter Biden or Jim Biden none of them ended well. None of the businesses ended well. Most of the businesses never got started off the ground. Any money that was transferred in from China or our adversaries from around the world ended up in the Biden’s back pockets.”
Comer continued by emphasizing that “these people have been left out to dry. They want to tell their story. Their good names have been tarnished and I think that is a very positive thing [that they want to clear their names]. There are two more people that were involved with the Bidens in various schemes that want to come forward but they are currently involved in different types of litigation and we are trying to explore the various options they would have.”
The Republican chairman further explained his case by noting all the progress in terms of witnesses and documentation that the Committee now had. He said, “Take the 4 to 6 people that we are in communication with along with now having bank records from multiple banks as well as having access and going in every day to the Treasury Department to see those suspicious activity reports and this investigation is moving along at a lot faster pace than most people would have predicted.”
The host then inquired whether the Committee was “anything closer to learning who the mystery Biden is who received those millions from China?”
Mr. Comer honestly answered “No.” He explained that “the reason that is taking so long is how many different bank accounts and how many different LLCs that the Bidens’ had. That right there is a red flag. That is one reason they got so many bank violations. If they are a legitimate business why do you have to have so many different LLCs and why when China sends you a wire do you have to send it through one, two, or even three LLCs to launder it before it then hits a Biden bank account.”
He exclaimed that “[t]his whole thing sticks to high heaven and once we get into the LLCs it will be interesting to see how they set their bookkeeping up and it will be interesting to see how and if they paid any taxes on this revenue that was coming in from our adversaries around the world. What did they write off?”
