One of the Republican leaders in the House said that the congressional investigation into Hunter Biden is going to be essential to creating a “legislative fix” so that they can prevent an unsavory financial entanglement involving the president of the United States.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has continually stressed a need for legislation while interviewing on Sunday. But Biden’s attorney keeps denying the oversight panel’s request for information saying that it had “no legislative purpose.”
“We need to know what is allowable and what isn’t allowable. We need to have strict ethics laws and we need to significantly increase the disclosure laws in America. I think this investigation is going to be very important to fix a problem before it gets out of hand,” Comer told ABC News’s “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos.
The GOP leadership ink Congress is investigating whether President Joe Biden has any involvement in illegal financial schemes that could be worth millions of dollars. The business dealings are related to his son Hunter in countries like China, Russia, and Ukraine.
President Biden has declared that he never talked to his son about his foreign business dealings, but Comer said that investigators “have evidence that would suggest otherwise.”
The truth is that the Biden family made millions from adversaries like China and there certainly could have been issues with national security.
Comer believes that we need stronger ethics & financial disclosure laws to prevent family members of those in power from selling access.
Comer sent requests for documents and other information to Hunter Biden and others. Abbe Lowell, the lawyer for Hunter, said the oversight panel “lacks a legitimate legislative purpose and oversight basis for requesting such records from Mr. Biden, who is a private citizen.”
That line of reasoning won’t stop the Republican leadership from getting to the bottom of the Biden family business.
Joe Biden's family made millions from adversaries like China. This jeopardizes national security.
We need stronger ethics & financial disclosure laws to prevent family members of those in power from selling access.
@GOPOversight will ensure accountability.
