House Oversight Committee Republican Jim Comer announced this weekend that he plans to bring in “key witnesses” in the Biden family probe.
Comer, who is the ranking member of the committee, said that he has been “frustrated” by the lack of cooperation from the Biden administration and its allies. He said that he has subpoenaed documents and witnesses, but that many of them have refused to comply.
During an interview with Fox News, Comer (R-KY) shared insight into what steps his panel will take as it ramps up its inquiry into what he has described as a pattern of millions of dollars flowing to Biden and his relatives from foreign nationals under suspicious circumstances.
“We’re going to start bringing in key figures in the Biden family influence-peddling schemes for depositions,” Comer said, “and I think we’re on the right track, even though we’re having to fight the FBI, fight the DOJ [Department of Justice], fight the Democrats in Congress and fight the mainstream media.”
Comer went further regarding the depth of this investigation:
“I think we’ve done as much as we could do with the obstacles we’ve had to overcome. No one thought I would get bank records,” Comer said. “No one thought we would get access to the Treasury, Cabinet’s suspicious activity reports, but we would not take ‘no’ for an answer,” Comer said about his committee’s efforts.”
He added: “We kept fighting and we prevailed. When we got access to the suspicious activity reports, the mainstream media said there was nothing there.”
There are approximately 20 “sham” companies and complicated financial transactions that have been used to hide money funneled to members of the Biden family, Comer said in a recent tweet. The chairman predicted in an interview last week with Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo that he expects bank records to show Biden family members accepting anywhere from $10 million up to $30 million from foreign nationals. Countries such as Ukraine, China, and Romania have become a focus of the inquiry.
🚨President Biden may have sold out the United States to make money for himself.
When reporters ask @POTUS why bank records show his family received millions of dollars from foreign adversaries, he only laughs.
What was the Biden family selling?
