On Wednesday, chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Accountability James Comer (R-Ky.) all but confirmed what many Republicans have long expected about the Biden family's potentially shady business dealings.
During a press conference, Comer said the committee had obtained thousands of pages of the Bidens' financial records revealing links with the Chinese Communist Party and other foreign sources forged during Joe Biden's tenure as vice president. The records also showed the Bidens received millions of dollars through a "complicated network of companies."
"The Bidens intentionally sought to hide, confuse, and conceal their influence-peddling schemes, but bank records don't lie. The Bidens made millions from foreign nationals providing what seems to be no services other than access and influence," Comer said in a statement. "... In at least one instance, the Bidens' CCP-linked associates took steps to conceal the source of the payment to the Bidens. The Bidens' foreign entanglements are breathtaking and raise serious questions about why foreign actors targeted the Biden family, what they expected in return, and whether our national security is threatened."
U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Hoover) said before the press conference that the forthcoming revelations in the Biden case could lead to impeachment. Despite what's been uncovered so far, he said the FBI is still holding back the investigation.
"Yesterday's press conference offered information showing more alleged instances the Biden family is profiting off Joe Biden's political positions, particularly while he was Vice President. What we have seen so far is very concerning," Palmer said in a statement to 1819 News. "Americans expect their President to have their best interests at heart. Unfortunately, I'm not sure that's the case. The FBI has so far stalled on allowing Congress to do its oversight duties. Congress has a right to this information, even if we first view it in a classified session. Throughout this entire process, I have made it clear that we should only go where the evidence leads us. The FBI's failure to provide informative material for our investigation will further damage the credibility of the Bureau and significantly increase suspicion of a cover up of wrongdoing. Regardless, we will continue to investigate."
U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville) commended Republicans for following through with their campaign promise to hold the Biden's accountable, and U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Saks) said Biden's "web of corruption is starting to unravel." Both agreed the public deserves to know more about what President Biden could be "hiding."
"When Republicans campaigned last fall we promised to hold Joe Biden and his administration accountable," Aderholt told 1819 News. "These investigations are a part of that promise and will continue to follow them as they progress. The American people deserve answers to the questions being investigated."
