GOP Oversight Chair. James Comer Believes Nearly a Dozen More Biz Deals Between China & Biden Family
Republican Representative James Comer claims there have been nearly a dozen more business deals between China and the Biden family following a House Oversight Committee report implicating the family in deals worth millions with the Communist government.
Comer, chairman of the Oversight Committee, also claimed on Fox News Sunday Morning Futures that he believes at least half a dozen Biden family members may be involved in the dealings, profiting off of Joe Biden’s name.
“At the end of this, I think we’re gonna see there are probably six or seven Biden family members that were involved in various business schemes around the world.”
While Comer didn’t mention any names, referenced the previously discovered $3 million wire to John “Rob” Walker, and revealed that “There were three Biden family members, including one that’s never been mentioned before,” implicated in the transaction. “This just shows how deeply the Biden family was involved in this influence-peddling scheme. What we don’t know is what the purpose of the money was for.”
Defenders of Biden and these deals have argued that they are above board, but Comer has doubts.
“Everyone says it was for an energy deal, but it looks to me like these people that were closely aligned with the Chinese Communist Party sent $3 million to a shell corporation, and then they turned around and split it three ways with a third going to the Biden family — three different family members for no apparent reason. They didn’t invest it in a business. They just, it appears, stuck it in their pocket.”
Comer’s discoveries have kickstarted a variety of reactions. Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed out the FBI’s disinterest in the case, while John Ratcliffe floated the idea that the timing of Trump’s indictment is meant to distract from the discoveries.

Fox’s @MariaBartiromo: "Do you think it’s a coincidence that as soon as Rep. James Comer came out and exposed those Biden bank records, suddenly Trump is going to be indicted?"

Comer is on the hunt for nearly a dozen similar deals, which he believes exist. The Oversight Committee has been given access to 150 suspicious activity reports (SARS) that sparked a financial investigation of Hunter Biden, which started in 2018. According to Fox News, some reports tied the President’s son to China.
“After two months of dragging their feet, the Treasury Department is finally providing us with access to the suspicious activity reports for the Biden family and their associates’ business transactions. It should never have taken us threatening to hold a hearing and conduct a transcribed interview with an official under the penalty of perjury for Treasury to finally accommodate part of our request.”

Comer previously promised to “continue to use bank documents and suspicious activity reports to follow the money trail to determine the extent of the Biden family’s business schemes, if these deals compromise Joe Biden, and if there is a national security threat.
Comer told Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures that that commitment hasn’t changed, and there’s more to come.
“We’re gonna follow the money. We knew there was a money trail, we’ve spoken to enough people that were involved in the shady business games all around the world. “Everything that we’ve subpoenaed thus far was accurate from what our whistleblowers were telling us, and we have a whole lot more information. This was the first deal, and we have many more to come.”
