"Everything's on the table" when it comes to President Joe Biden and the payments his family members got from China, including the potential of impeachment, House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer told Newsmax on Thursday.
"I'll move forward to something like that when we determine whether or not he's made decisions because of payments that his family received from our biggest adversary on the planet, the Chinese Communist Party," the Kentucky Republican said on Newsmax's "Wake Up America." "This is a very serious investigation, and the things that we're investigating make Watergate look like jaywalking. This is a very serious investigation of public corruption of a historical proportion."
There is also no way Biden can't be compromised, said Comer, referring to suspicious activity reports from the Department of Treasury he's obtained showing at least nine members of the Biden family were getting money from China through LLCs that had been set up.
"He's very compromised, or he's already done things that we may not know about because I don't think China would be investing that much money in Biden family members if they weren't getting a return on that investment, so that's why we continue this investigation," said Comer. "Unfortunately for Joe Biden, we continue to find more evidence of potential wrongdoing," he added. "We certainly find evidence of ethics questions and public corruption questions. This is very concerning for us on the Oversight Committee. It should be very concerning for everyone in America that this president has the potential to be compromised because of the millions of dollars his family's received from the Chinese Communist Party."
Comer said his committee is also trying to determine if some of the decisions Biden made while vice president and as president, which were "bad for the average working, taxpaying Americans were made because of the money that his family's received."
Comer said he doesn't think most Americans understand that the Treasury reports show "many more bank accounts" and "many more LLCs" that involve more members of the Biden family.
"The thing that I think most Americans don't understand is what we found at Treasury in the last few weeks is that there are many more bank violations," he said. "There are many more bank accounts. There are many more LLCs, and there are many more Bidens that were involved in this influence-peddling scheme than we first thought … if you Google influence-peddling, Joe Biden's family should pop up."
Meanwhile, Hunter Biden can't just be "cherry-picked" for an indictment, said Comer, because "what we've proven in the last three weeks, it's many more Bidens than the president's son. You can't go in and just indict Hunter Biden and not indict the [president's] brother or some of the in-laws and nieces and nephews. The whole family has been involved in this influence-peddling, not just Hunter Biden, to the tune of millions of dollars."
