Comer Suggests House GOP Has Evidence of Joe Biden’s Role in Hunter’s Business Deals

'I think this investigation is going to be very important to fix a problem before it gets out of hand... '

(Headline USA) House Oversight Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., suggested this weekend that the GOP has evidence President Joe Biden knew about his son Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.

“We know that Joe Biden said during the presidential campaign that he had no knowledge of his son’s business interests. He wasn’t involved. He didn’t benefit from them. We have evidence that would suggest otherwise. And this is very concerning,” Comer told ABC News on Sunday.

Comer has been investigating the president’s involvement in his family’s overseas business dealings, and recently submitted a request for records to Hunter Biden’s legal team. The request was rebuffed by Hunter Biden’s lawyer, who claimed the first son is entitled to certain protections from congressional investigations.

Democrats have also tried to downplay Hunter Biden’s alleged wrongdoings by pointing out that Jared Kushner, former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, conducted business deals with Saudi Arabia.

Comer admitted that “everything’s on the table” and said we need “strict ethics laws” to deal with this issue moving forward. However, he said Kushner has already sat down with investigators voluntarily. The Bidens, on the other hand, have refused to cooperate with Congress.

“We need to know what is allowable and what isn’t allowable. We need to have strict ethics laws, and we need to significantly increase the disclosure laws in America. I think this investigation is going to be very important to fix a problem before it gets out of hand,” Comer said.

Hunter Biden’s business dealings with China are of special interest given China’s increasingly aggressive posture toward the U.S., Comer added.

“Americans are outraged that China flew a balloon over the United States, Americans are outraged that China is trying to buy farmland. I think Americans would be outraged to know how much money the Biden family is taking in from China. And for what, we don’t exactly know,” he said.
