On Friday’s “Hannity” episode, House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Representative James Comer (R-KY) stated that if Democrats want to really embarrass Republicans for what they have said about Hunter Biden, they do not need a war room; the Bidens can simply release suspicious activity reports on the Biden family and prove Republicans wrong if they truly believe Republicans are wrong.
“If the Democrats want to shame Republicans on the Oversight Committee for making false allegations against the Biden family, all they have to do is show that what we say is false, turn over those bank records, those suspicious activity reports,” Comer added. “This is the most incriminating thing about what this White House has done to obstruct congressional investigations and protect Hunter Biden from being investigated and the whole Biden family from all of their foreign influence-peddling. They have modified the regulations such that Congress no longer has access to suspicious activity reports. That is not something we should have to subpoena. If necessary, we will. But, in the end, Maxine Waters included wording in legislation to restore Congress’s jurisdiction after Joe Biden modified the rule. I believe the Financial Services Committee can do something early on to give Congress access to those suspicious activity reports.”
Government Accountability Institute Pres. Peter Schweizer released Secret Empires and Profiles in Corruption in 2018 and 2020, respectively. Each book debuted at the top of the New York Times bestseller list, revealing how Hunter and Joe Biden traveled aboard Air Force Two to China in 2013 before Hunter’s business sealed a $1.5 billion contract with an unit of the Chinese government’s Bank of China less than two weeks later. Schweizer’s investigation also revealed the Biden family’s other large and lucrative international dealings and cronyism. Political Editor Emma-Jo Morris’ New York Post investigation into Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” also made international headlines when she and Miranda Devine revealed that Pres. Biden was intimately involved in his son Hunter’s businesses, appearing to have a 10% stake in a firm the scion formed with Chinese Communist Party officials at the highest levels.
