Comer discusses next steps: “I would predict somewhere around two dozen subpoenas in the very near future.”
WASHINGTON—“What we have proven in the last two weeks with the checks to Joe Biden is Joe Biden benefitted directly from his family’s shady influence peddling scheme,” House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) said on “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News. Chairman Comer outlined how Joe Biden lied to the American people about his knowledge of and participation in his family’s shady business dealings and how he personally benefited from them. Comer also announced that subpoenas will soon be issued.
On bank records memoranda showing Joe Biden benefited from laundered China money earned by his family cashing in on his name:
“We traced the $40,000 check that Joe Biden received all the way back to that WhatsApp message where Hunter Biden claimed his father was sitting beside him while he was shaking down the Chinese operative. That’s where that $40,000 was triggered.
“Just a few weeks after that text message, that $40,000 landed in Joe Biden’s pocket after the Biden’s laundered it. But that money came from China – further evidence that Joe Biden benefited from his family’s influence peddling scheme.”
On issuing subpoenas to the Bidens:
“This has been a painful process. We’ve been obstructed, we’ve been fought at every turn not just by the Bidens’ big money attorneys, but also by the federal government. The IRS has obstructed, the DOJ has obstructed, the Treasury has obstructed, FBI has obstructed, and the Democrats on the House Oversight Committee have pretty much been the Biden legal defense team.
Comer continued, “I would predict somewhere around two dozen subpoenas in the very near future.”
On the Bidens claiming payments were “loans” to avoid reporting them on taxes:
“The reason they did these complicated transactions was to disguise the source of the revenue and to deceive the IRS from paying taxes. What you’re going to see in the coming weeks are a lot of loans. Anytime the Bidens have money, they’re going to claim it was a loan, because you don’t have to report loans on your taxes.
Joe Biden lied to the American people when he said he had nothing to do with his family’s business dealings.
“I can’t emphasize this enough. This was a very organized criminal scheme by the Bidens. Here’s the problem for Joe Biden. He lied about his knowledge and involvement of his family’s shady influence peddling schemes.
“We’ve proven the family was influence peddling. Even the Democrats and the media won’t touch that. We have proven the Bidens were influence peddling. Now what we’re looking at is Joes involvement.
“What we have proven in the last two weeks with the checks to Joe Biden is Joe Biden benefitted directly from his family’s shady influence peddling scheme.”
