On Sunday morning, Rep. James Comer (R-KY) joined Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Future” to discuss President Biden’s classified document scandal and House Republicans efforts to conduct oversight on the president.
“Most Americans would be shocked if they saw how many connections the Biden family has with people directly affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party. It is very startling. And with respect to the documents Maria, I took the president to his word when the first set of documents was found at the Biden Center for Diplomacy that he had just inadvertently misplaced those documents,” the congressman said. “But now this has gone from being just simply irresponsible to downright scary.”
“This has all the patterns of a influence peddling scheme and it also has the makings of a potential cover up. I mean five different locations at least,” he said. “Who knows what those personal attorneys have been doing? And when you look into all the things that our investigation is covering with respect to the influence peddling, there’s a lot of connections with the CCP directly to both Hunter Biden, Hunter Biden’s uncle Jim, and Joe Biden.”
“When you see that there are classified documents just casually left around at different locations, it is very concerning. You see the complexity of this influence peddling scheme that the family has been doing for years and years,” Comer stated. “And then we learn that some of those documents were from his time as a US Senator?”
“The evidence continues to build that this family has not only profited off of the Biden family name but also that our national security could be at risk,” Comer added.
Bartiromo then explained that 150 different “suspicious activity reports” have been found going to various holdings owned by Hunter Biden and that if the Biden administration continues to holdup the Republican investigations, Maria asked the congressman if they would “hold them in contempt?”
“We’ll do everything we can to get the answers, and you mentioned those bank records,” The House Oversight Committee chair stated. “The amazing thing that we’ve been able to determine thus far is how many different transactions into different accounts and how many different LLCs that Hunter Biden had that he was doing, quote, consulting work for other people who were getting million dollar payments directly from the CCP into their account.”
“I mean, this isn’t the most complex investigation on the planet. You know, investigating Hunter and the Biden family’s about like tracking a bleeding bear through a snowstorm. There is evidence everywhere that would point out that this family has been involved in influence-peddling schemes for decades. And this is very concerning.”
Comer then explained that he will be sending a letter to the Secret Service in order to get answers about who potentially had access to the classified documents.
With Republicans like Rep. Comer adamant to go after President Biden for the classified document scandal, Americans will hopefully get answers soon and stop being stonewalled by the White House.
