That was fast…
No sooner had multiple news outlets projected that Republicans would take the House than Reps. James Comer (R-KY) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) announced probes into the Biden family. GOP members of the House Oversight Committee came out swinging during a Thursday presser.
“Was Joe Biden directly involved with Hunter Biden’s business deals, and is he compromised? That’s our investigation,” Comer said to members of the press.
Comer is the incoming chair of the House Oversight Committee while Jim Jordan is expected to chair the House Judiciary Committee —both spell trouble for the embattled Biden family.
According to Fox News, the representatives alleged that Hunter Biden and Joe Biden participated in “waste, fraud, and abuse” in international business dealings.
The Republicans also released a report Thursday morning: A President Compromised: The Biden Family Investigation. Excerpts below:
During the 2020 presidential campaign, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden assured the American people he was not involved in his family members’ multi-million-dollar global business deals. He assured Americans he had always remained apart from his family’s business interests while he was Vice President.
Evidence obtained by Committee on Oversight and Reform Republicans shows these assurances were false. President Joe Biden has participated in his family’s global business ventures with America’s adversaries. He has misused his public positions to further his family’s financial interests. These actions have created the potential for President Biden to be susceptible to influence, blackmail, or extortion by a malign or foreign entity, including the Chinese Communist Party.
A review of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, as well as information from whistleblowers, reveals a decade-long pattern of influence peddling, national security risks, and political cover-ups. Biden family members used their connections with Joe Biden to enrich themselves through the expectation of access to Joe Biden and promises about what a future Biden Administration might do for them. There are numerous unanswered questions raised by these suspicious activities that warrant further investigation.
The report is 31 pages long and the Republicans say they have uncovered evidence of conspiracy to defraud the U.S., wire fraud, violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, money laundering, tax evasion and other crimes, Fox News reports.
Will the Biden pay-to-play scheme finally be revealed? Will we “The Big Guy” go down?
All eyes are on the Comer and Jordan.
