The decade's most triggering comedy
Rep. James Comer (R-KY), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Wednesday that foreign payments in part brokered by the Biden family could top $40 million.
Comer spoke of his investigation into the Biden family and its overseas business dealings during an appearance on the “Cats and Cosby” show on WABC 770 in New York. Comer said the evidence he has reviewed so far suggests that the Biden family’s behavior was much more sinister than just inappropriate business dealings by Hunter Biden and his uncle, James Biden.
“It’s a huge puzzle. This was organized crime. There’s no other way to define it. This was organized crime,” Comer said. “This was something that’s going to top out, I would say, around 30 to 40 different banks and about that many different shell companies.”
Comer said that congressional investigators have identified at least six suspicious policy decisions that seem to have been influenced by corruption rather than any identifiable and legitimate U.S. interest.
“We have six specific policy decisions, four of which were made while Joe Biden was president early on that we can’t come to any other conclusion as to why these decisions were made other than the president is compromised,” Comer said.
Estimating based on bank records and other documents investigators have reviewed so far, Comer projects that the Biden family pulled in somewhere between $17 million to $30 million from foreign businessmen. The total worth of all those transactions likely exceeds $40 million, the Oversight Committee chairman said.
“We’re talking about some real money here, and I’m not counting – with the first transaction we disclosed was $3 million to the Chinese Communist Party to the Robinson Walker LLC account. From that, the Bidens got $1.3 million. I’m not counting $3 million, I’m counting $1.3 million, so, you know, the transactions could exceed $40 million plus,” Comer said.
The Kentucky Republican said he had much more to share about the Biden family’s transactions, including numerous other countries where the Bidens have a footprint.
“Romania, China those are the two countries we’ve already disclosed transactions. We’re about to disclose transactions from Ukraine, as well as Russia,” Comer said. President Joe Biden’s brother James “dealt mainly in the Middle East, so you have four or five countries in the Middle East that he influence-peddled on.”
“There’s also countries in Africa where Hunter Biden was actively involved in influence peddling and where Joe Biden was involved in foreign policy decisions. This was an organized family crime unit, essentially,” Comer said.
