Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., told Newsmax Tuesday that “some of the bad energy policies coming out of the Biden administration” might be explained by “more and more evidence” that shows President “Joe Biden was a part of Hunter’s shady business dealings.”
“I think everybody in America knows Hunter Biden is a bad dude, and he's a shady business character, but what we're starting to find out from the Republicans on the House Oversight Committee is that Joe Biden did, in fact, know very well what Hunter Biden was doing,” the Kentucky Republican said during an appearance on “Spicer & Co.” “More and more evidence is beginning to come in that Joe Biden was a part of this. That's a national security crisis.”
“More and more evidence is coming forward: more and more emails, more and more text messages and more and more whistleblowers that were in direct contact with Hunter Biden and his associates,” Comer continued. “That would lead me to believe that this is of the utmost concern to every American. I believe the FBI had to know about a lot of this stuff that was going on. I wonder why they haven't done anything about it.”
Last week, the House Oversight Committee, of which Comer is a ranking member, rejected a Republican effort to seek documents related to the Biden family’s international business deals, according to CNN.
Comer acknowledged that “a lot of people are saying we need a special counsel to investigate” the younger Biden, but said that “special counsels take a long time.”
“I think that we can make a lot of progress in the Oversight Committee if we can get things like those suspicious activity reports, if we can have a public setting where these whistleblowers can testify under oath,” the Bluegrass State congressman said. “They will come forward and they will testify if we’re in the majority and I have the gavel on the Oversight Committee.”
A suspicious activity report is a document that financial institutions must file with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network whenever there is a suspected case of money laundering or fraud, according to Reuters. These reports are tools that help monitor any out of the ordinary activity within finance-related industries that could indicate illegal activity or potentially threaten public safety.
“Hunter Biden had 150 bank violations,” Comer said. “That's the bank notifying the federal government that we're pretty confident our client has committed criminal activity here. We have been told by some whistleblowers that Joe Biden's name was on some of those bank accounts, that their funds were co-mingled.”
