Comer hints at evidence that president knew of family's shady dealings

 February 13, 2023

House Oversight Chair James Comer suggested that the GOP may have evidence that President Joe Biden knew about Hunter Biden's shady business dealings.

"We know that Joe Biden said during the presidential campaign that he had no knowledge of his son's business interests. He wasn't involved. He didn't benefit from them. We have evidence that would suggest otherwise. And this is very concerning," Comer said.

"Recently, Hunter Biden's lawyer spurned a request for records about Hunter's business activity related to China, contending that the first son was a private citizen entitled to certain protections from congressional investigations," reported the Washington Examiner.

"Democrats have raged against the inquiry, blasting Comer for harboring political motivations in his investigation," reports the Examiner.

Democrat Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon recently said that Republicans should also take a look at a $2 billion investment the Saudis paid to a firm linked to former President Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Comer said, "everything's on the table" and also said that Congress may need to consider reforming its disclosure laws and juxtaposed Kushner's interactions toward Congress with the Hunter Biden.

"I don't disagree with the Democrats and their criticism of the previous administration. We have a problem here that needs a legislative solution," said Comer. "We need to have strict ethics laws. And we need to significantly increase the disclosure laws in America. So, I think this investigation is going to be very important."

"The difference between Jared Kushner and Hunter Biden is that Jared Kushner actually sat down with was interviewed. He was interviewed by investigators. So, he's already been investigated," Comer added. "Thus far, Hunter Biden's attorneys, the president's attorneys, the president's White House, they're doing everything they can to block our investigation."
