Comer: President Biden’s Pattern of Lies, Corruption, and Obstruction Demand Action from Congress

WASHINGTON— Today, House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) provided an update on the impeachment inquiry of President Joe Biden at the House Republican Conference stakeout. Chairman Comer detailed how evidence uncovered by the Oversight Committee’s investigation refutes President Biden’s lies about his family’s business schemes. Evidence reveals President Biden knew about, participated in, and benefited from his family’s corrupt business practices.  House Republicans will continue to follow the facts and deliver the transparency and accountability that the American people demand and deserve.

Below are Chairman Comer’s prepared remarks.

Joe Biden has repeatedly lied to the American people about his family’s corrupt influence peddling schemes.

Our investigation has revealed how Joe Biden knew of, participated in, and benefited from his family cashing in on the Biden name around the world.

First, President Biden told the American people he never spoke to his son about his family’s business dealings.

This is a lie.

President Biden spoke by phone, attended dinners, and had coffee with his son’s foreign business associates.

These individuals include Russian and Kazakhstani oligarchs, a Burisma executive, and a Chinese national who funneled millions to his son.

President Biden claimed there was an “absolute wall” between his official government duties as Vice President and his family.

But there was no such wall. The door was wide open to his family’s influence peddling schemes.

Joe Biden allowed his son to catch a ride on Air Force Two at least a dozen times to sell the “Biden Brand” around the world.

The National Archives also has identified that the Office of the Vice President emailed with the Biden family and their businesses over 29,000 times. However, the White House is withholding these emails from Congress in addition to the 82,000 pages of pseudonym emails.

President Biden claimed his family didn’t receive money from China.

But they did.

President Biden’s son, brother, sister-in-law, and daughter-in-law collectively received millions from CCP-linked entities.

We’ve also revealed how Joe Biden received $40,000 in laundered China money in the form of a personal check from his sister-in-law.

The White House and Corporate Media continue to move the goal posts as they seek to cover up for President Biden and his family.

But make no mistake: financial records, emails, text messages, and witness testimony reveal that the Biden family enterprise is centered on Joe Biden’s political career and connections.

Joe Biden knew about, participated, and benefitted from these schemes.

This is a national security threat at the highest level of government and Americans demand accountability for the Bidens’ corruption.

Over the next two months, our committees will interview members of the Biden family and their associates about this record of evidence.

We expect full compliance with our lawfully issued subpoenas.

No one is above the law – even if your last name is Biden.

Our committees will first interview and depose witnesses.

We then of course would welcome Hunter Biden to testify at a public hearing at a future date.

Democrats should have no concerns with first deposing and interviewing key witnesses. This is how they conducted their Impeachment Inquiry of former President Trump and the January 6th Committee.

President Biden’s pattern of lies, corruption, and obstruction demand action from Congress.

We will continue to follow the facts and hold President Biden accountable to the American people.
