A new report alleging President Joe Biden‘s younger brother, James Biden, was in business with Qatari officials gave House Republicans fresh ammunition to warn the public about the first family being ensnared in foreign entanglements.

House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY), who is leading the corruption-focused impeachment inquiry into President Biden, responded to the report from POLITICO on Sunday with a post to X that began with a siren emoji.

“The Bidens don’t sell a product, service, or a set of skills,” Comer said. “It’s simple: the Biden family is selling access for millions of dollars to those around the world willing to pay for it. And Joe Biden continues to lie about the role he played in the influence peddling schemes.”

The POLITICO report centers on testimony by fund manager Michael Lewitt in a Kentucky bankruptcy court indicating that James Biden partnered with Qatari government officials to secure money for healthcare ventures.was  It noted that Lewitt is a former business partner of James Biden and is likely to face questions about the alleged Qatari ties during a planned interview for the impeachment inquiry.

The report said a representative for James Biden nor the Qatari Embassy responded to requests for comment. But Ali Al-Ansari, Qatar’s media attache in Washington, D.C., later provided The Daily Wire with a statement.

“We are unaware of this hypothetical investment deal referenced by a fact witness in a case unrelated to the State of Qatar,” the statement said. “The State of Qatar engages with the US government through official institutional channels. That said, we regularly work side by side with hundreds of US companies both in the United States and within Qatar, and expect all our business partners to comply fully with all relevant laws and regulations, including registration requirements.”


James Biden has already given testimony for the House impeachment inquiry. He denied that President Biden had any involvement in his business activities and rejected a previous POLITICO report that said he invoked his brother’s name to promote a hospital chain that collapsed. In addition, as reported by The Daily Wire, notes revealed during the deposition showed James Biden told the Internal Revenue Service that Hunter Biden, the president’s son, told him he was in business with a “protege” of Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

House GOP investigators have said they are looking into whether James Biden “told the truth” in his deposition after finding apparent inconsistencies with other impeachment probe witnesses, which Comer suggested could lead to criminal referrals.

Comer formally invited President Biden to testify in mid-April and said investigators had accounted for $24 million that “flowed” toward Biden, his family, and their business associates from other countries, such as China and Ukraine. The chairman said his panel “identified no legitimate services to merit such lucrative payments” and declared that evidence, including bank records and witness testimony, “wholly contradicts” Biden’s denial about being involved in his family’s business activities.”

Biden’s special counsel, Richard Sauber, delivered a response that said the president would turn down the invitation. In a letter to Comer, Sauber claimed the “impeachment investigation is over” and insisted the oversight panel had turned up evidence showing that Biden “has done nothing wrong.”
