On Sunday, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) joined Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’s ‘Sunday Morning Futures’ to discuss the recent revelations that at least nine Biden family members are involved in a enrichment scheme with foreign business dealings.
“So they were trying to make it look like the numbers were lower because they were dispersing money to other family members. How many family members were involved?” the Fox host asked.
“Well right now we have nine but I believe in the end that number will be at least 12,” Comer revealed. “This was the Biden family influence peddling scheme. When people say ‘Well they were involved in ventures around the world.’ I haven’t found a legitimate business on the Biden end, Maria.”
“I found legitimate businesses that were paying, the LLCs that were then turning around and laundering the money back to the Bidens,” he explained. “But I haven’t found any legitimate business dealings on the Biden end.”
“It looks like if there were no legitimate business dealings with any of these LLCs, it was influence peddling,” Comer said. “If you want to get technical and you want a legal term, that’s called being a foreign agent. And I’m sure that the ethics laws would prevent immediate family members of high-ranking government officials from being foreign agents.”
“Either way this is bad. There are more laws that appear to me that have been broken other than just tax evasion,” the Republican representative emphasized. “And there are lot more Biden’s involved than just the president’s son and his brother.”
Comer then went on to say that Hunter Biden should have been indicted years ago, but that the recent IRS whistleblower could lead to an indictment of the president’s son.
IRS whistleblower came forward on Wednesday saying that the investigation into Hunter Biden is being undermined by the Biden administration.
The whistleblower’s lawyer, attorney Mark Lytle of Nixon Peabody, wrote to senators, inspectors general of the Department of Justice, and the Treasury Department to make them aware of the explosive accusations.
The attorney explained that his client is an IRS Criminal Supervisor Special Agent that has overseen a “sensitive investigation of a high-profile, controversial subject,” as reported by The Daily Mail.
“Despite serious risks of retaliation, my client is offering to provide you with information necessary to exercise your constitutional oversight function and wishes to make the disclosures in a non-partisan manner to the leadership of the relevant committees on both sides of the political aisle,” the letter to lawmakers reads.
The letter goes on to explain that the evidence the whistleblower has in his possession goes against sworn testimony to Congress by “a senior political appointee”, involves failure to mitigate conflicts of interest, and shows preferential treatment and politics having an impact on decision making.
“With the appropriate legal protections and in the appropriate setting, I would be happy to meet with you and provide a more detailed proffer of the testimony my client could provide to Congress,” the letter concludes.
The whistleblower has apparently already shared information with the Department of Justice and the Treasury’s Tax Administration.
As the investigation into the Biden family continues to ramp up, their web of dealings is beginning to take shape. Hopefully, more evidence will come to light that will result in accountability for their actions.
