Speaking on Newsmax’s “Chris Salcedo Show” on Wednesday, Rep. James Comer (R-KY) revealed that Republicans in Congress are “ready to retake the gavel” and investigate Hunter Biden following the release of more emails and videos from the infamous laptop he abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop.
“[Congressional Republicans are] continuing to gather data. As you know, the Democrats control the committee hearings because they’re in the majority, but we’re fully prepared to retake the gavel, hopefully, after the midterm elections in January,” said Comer, who sits on the House Oversight Committee.
The Kentucky congressman noted that, despite not being the party in power, Republicans are still gathering evidence, including information confirming that President Joe Biden had lied about not being aware of his son’s business dealings.
“We continue to gather evidence, and I’ve been shocked at the amount of evidence now that we have that shows Joe Biden was, in fact, well aware of many of the shady business dealings and many of the shady business characters that Hunter aligned himself with,” Comer said.
The Kentucky Republican went on to say that the information contained on the abandoned laptop provided “evidence” that Hunter and his father, who was the sitting vice president at the time, were very intertwined. It has been revealed that Biden and his son shared bank accounts, as well as business contacts across the globe, including in Ukraine and China.
“You saw the video where Hunter said his father would ‘do anything’ that he asked,” Comer said. “I think now we’ve seen the sales pitch that Hunter Biden would make to the Russian oligarchs, to the Ukrainian energy companies, (and) to the Chinese Communist Party. All these shady outfits Hunter Biden had business dealings with when Joe Biden was vice president.”
Comer also noted that evidence found on the laptop could suggest that Joe Biden violated federal banking laws by allowing his son to not only have access to the same account, but by letting him deposit funds and draw checks on behalf of his father.
“Here the vice president of the United States is on an account that he never disclosed publicly in his financial disclosure form, which I think is an ethics violation in itself,” the congressman said. “And he was a cosigner of some of these notes, and some of these accounts, his name was on some of these accounts that Hunter Biden had. Many of these accounts are in violation with federal banking law.”
Comer revealed that 150 “suspicious activity” reports have already been filed against several of Hunter Biden’s checking accounts, which is especially concerning considering the fact that it has now been uncovered that the president was involved in some of those accounts.
“We’ve already disclosed that there were 150 suspicious activity reports filed against various hunter Biden checking accounts,” he said. “This is very serious, and Joe Biden was, in fact, involved in some of these accounts.”
