House Republicans will examine disgraced first son Hunter Biden as a “national security threat” who could have “compromised” the US and his father with shady business dealings in Ukraine and China, a high GOP lawmaker stated Monday.
“The whole reason we’re investigating Hunter Biden is because we know that he’s a national security threat and we fear that he has compromised Joe Biden,” Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) instructed Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria.”
“I think the American people are going to be shocked with what they find out the Biden family’s been doing to profit off Joe Biden’s name over the past decade,” added Comer, who’s anticipated to be named chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee if Republicans regain management of the chamber within the Nov. 8 midterm elections.
Referring to experiences late final week that FBI brokers consider they’ve gathered sufficient proof to cost the youthful Biden for tax crimes in addition to mendacity about his drug use with a purpose to purchase a gun, Comer predicted that “this is not going to end well” for the president and his son.
“The top investigation right now is going to be the Biden family’s influence-peddling. And remember, Maria, it’s not just Hunter Biden, it’s the president’s brother [Jim Biden] and potentially the president as well,” Comer instructed host Maria Bartiromo.
The lawmaker additionally advised that Republicans will scrutinize a minimum of 150 “suspicious activity reports” about Hunter Biden’s monetary dealings that the Treasury Department has blocked Republicans in Congress from accessing.
“Remember, Maria, that’s the banks — and they were more than one bank — that notified the federal government that we believe our client has committed a crime,” Comer stated. “Now he [Hunter] had 150 of these, at least, from at least four different banks. And yet we haven’t been able to determine the extent of what exactly triggered these suspicious activity reports.”
The Republican vowed that he and his colleagues will ask the Treasury Department for these experiences once more after the midterms or request them by subpoena in January.
“We’re going to get those ‘suspicious activity reports’ and we’ll be able to answer those questions as to why Hunter Biden and Jim Biden’s personal banks notified the federal government that their clients — who they knew at the time were the son and brother of the sitting vice president of the United States — [that] ‘we are confident they committed a crime,’” he stated.
Comer added the experiences represent “a pretty sure indication that there was criminal activity” by members of the president’s household.
“They were trying to get Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies, through the back door so they could start getting a foothold on American energy. That is counter to everything every American citizen should want, especially now with record high energy prices,” Comer stated.
The Republican went on to accuse the president of pursuing an “America last,” “China first” vitality coverage.
“We believe that the reason for that is because the Biden family has received millions and millions of dollars of direct payments from crooked, shady Chinese energy companies that were in direct link with the Chinese Communist Party,” Comer claimed.
“So this is why we’re investigating this. We’re not going to let up and we’ll certainly present the facts to the American people,” he added.
The Post first revealed Hunter Biden’s in depth overseas dealings in a collection of experiences in October 2020 that had been based mostly on data discovered on the arduous drive of a laptop computer he deserted at a Delaware computer store in 2019.
