- Rep. James Comer announces intentions to subpoena members of the Biden family, intensifying the investigation into potential influence peddling.
- The Oversight Committee unveils bank records indicating the Biden family and their allies amassed approximately $20 million from foreign sources.
- Comer questions the lack of sanctions on a specific Russian oligarch who wired significant funds to an entity tied to Hunter Biden.
Representative James Comer (R-Ky.), Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, announced this Thursday his intention to issue subpoenas to members of the Biden family.
This decision comes as the investigation into President Biden’s potential involvement in his son’s alleged influence peddling intensifies.
In a candid discussion on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria”, Comer emphasized, “We are going to subpoena the family.”
He asserted that his committee is actively building a case, readying itself for the inevitable courtroom showdown that will arise once the Bidens are subpoenaed.
While Comer chose not to specify a timeline for this action, he did hint at wanting to discuss matters with a few more of the Biden family’s associates.
Notably, he remained tight-lipped about the identities of these “associates” but left a stark warning, hinting that if they failed to cooperate voluntarily, subpoenas would be their inevitable fate.
Evidence recently presented by the committee indicates that the Biden family and their close allies accumulated approximately $20 million from overseas sources, notably from countries like Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine.
Comer pointedly stated, “The president and the media were telling us that no money had been transferred to the Bidens while Joe Biden was vice president — that was false.”
The committee’s revelations have been met with strong resistance from the White House.
Biden has consistently denied any wrongdoing, maintaining that he never mingled business with family matters.
White House spokesman Ian Sams suggested that the Republicans are selectively sharing information to fit their narrative.
However, Comer’s scrutiny doesn’t end there.
He openly questioned the Treasury Department’s curious exemption of one particular Russian oligarch, Yelena Baturina, from the list of sanctioned individuals, despite her wiring $3.5 million in 2014 to an entity associated with Hunter Biden.
“When Russia invaded Ukraine, the president was quick to put sanctions on all the Russian oligarchs except one — the one person who sent his family three and a half million dollars,” Comer emphasized, pushing for clarity on why such a significant transaction was overlooked.
As the investigation continues, Comer voiced his frustration about the perceived obstructions from various governmental agencies, including the Department of Justice and the FBI, suggesting a larger protective barrier around the Bidens.
The White House remains silent amidst these latest allegations.
