House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) said that more witnesses and sources will come forward in connection with his committee’s investigation of alleged influence peddling and bribery on behalf of President Joe Biden’s family.
“I think we’ve done as much as we could do with the obstacles we’ve had to overcome,” Comer told Fox News over the weekend. “No one thought I would get bank records. No one thought we would get access to the Treasury, Cabinet’s suspicious activity reports, but we would not take no for an answer.”
Comer added that his job as head of the House Oversight Committee is to “follow the money” in relation to the investigation, adding that “we have more bank records coming in.” Elaborating on his plans, Comer said that he is “going to start bringing in key figures” in the Biden family’s business deals “for depositions, and I think we’re on the right track, even though we’re having to fight the FBI, fight the [Department of Justice], fight the Democrats in Congress, and fight the mainstream media.”
His investigation is centered now on indirect wire transfers to members of the Biden family while he was vice president. Those wire transfers were made through shell companies to nine members of the Biden family, he told Fox, adding that the discovery of an FBI 1023 form means that the Justice Department chose not to investigate whistleblowers’ bribery allegations.
“Even though they will tell you and you heard in the testimony when [Republican Senators] Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley grilled the deputy FBI director as to why they wouldn’t release the Form 1023, they said, ‘Well, we don’t want to endanger the life of our paid informant who’s one of our most trusted, highest paid, most credible FBI informants,’” Comer told Fox.
The chairman added, “So if this is the case and the FBI informant’s that credible and the FBI informant tells the FBI that the vice president of the United States took a bribe from a foreign national in exchange for foreign policy and foreign aid, then why did the FBI not investigate it?”…
