Rep. James Comer of Kentucky demanded information about the Biden crime family, including Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) that were generated by banks and flagged activities of President joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden, his brother James, and other Biden family associates in a letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen after being recently appointed Chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee.
Former NY congresswoman Carolyn Maloney served as Comer’s predecessor as chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee. After redistricting placed both of them in the 12th congressional district, Maloney lost her campaign for reelection to Rep. Jerrold Nadler in 2022.
The House Oversight and Accountability Committee’s website now reads, “Members of the Biden family have a habit of selling access to the highest levels of government to benefit themselves, frequently to the detriment of U.S. interests. We are dedicated to investigating the money trail left by the Biden family and their connections, which includes several intricate, international transactions totaling millions of dollars. The American people have a right to know if the President’s ties to his family’s business dealings served American interests or posed a threat to national security.”
Comer pointed out in his letter that the Department of the Treasury had rejected their requests for information even though the Committee on Oversight and Accountability was looking into President Biden’s participation in his family’s international influence-peddling schemes and foreign business practices.
In order to determine if President Biden has jeopardized our national security at America’s expense, the Committee is looking into his involvement in and knowledge of these schemes. He requested that Treasury release “any SARs created in connection with Robert Hunter Biden, Sara Biden, James Biden, John R. ‘Rob’ Walker, Devon Archer, Eric Schwerin, and business entities related to them.”
Comer also asked for “any records and communications between FinCEN, the Department of Treasury or its affiliate agencies, and the White House involving Robert Hunter Biden, Sara Biden, James Biden, John R. “Rob” Walker, Eric Schwerin, Devon Archer, and business entities associated to them.”
According to Comer, Treasury said in 2022 that it “has made SARs accessible for every request we have received, regardless of party affiliation, and will continue to do so.” Comer went on to say, “however, Treasury’s lack of a substantial response to Republican demands for SARs and other data in the 117th Congress shows that Treasury’s leaders abandoned this policy around the same time as we asked for information about the Biden family.” The Committee Republican staff was then advised by Treasury in 2022 that SARs would only be sent to congressional committees in response to requests made by committee chairmen.
But Comer is the chairman right now. “In accordance with my powers as Chairman of the Oversight and Accountability Committee, I hereby make these demands,” he said.
