Comer: Hunter Biden’s Sweetheart Plea Should Be Trashed

WASHINGTON—House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) issued the following statement after U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika refused to rubberstamp Hunter Biden’s sweetheart plea deal:

“Today District Judge Noreika did the right thing by refusing to rubberstamp Hunter Biden’s sweetheart plea deal. But let’s be clear: Hunter’s sweetheart plea deal belongs in the trash. Last week we heard from two credible IRS whistleblowers about the Department of Justice’s politicization and misconduct in the Biden criminal investigation. Today, the Department of Justice revealed Hunter Biden is under investigation for being a foreign agent.

“The evidence uncovered by the Oversight Committee’s investigation into the Bidens’ influence peddling schemes mirrors the evidence put forth by the IRS whistleblowers. We will continue to follow the Bidens’ money trail to determine whether foreign actors targeted the Bidens, President Biden is compromised, and our national security is threatened. We will also continue to work with the Ways and Means Committee and Judiciary Committee to investigate the Department of Justice’s coverup and hold bad actors accountable.”
