Representative Comer: Biden Family Payments Influenced Decisions

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said Sunday it would be “impossible” for the Department of Justice to “cherry pick” Hunter Biden alone for indictment without also pursuing at least eight other members of President Joe Biden’s family.

Additionally, the money they received influenced “six specific decisions” President Biden made either while president or vice president, said Comer.

“They were doing the same thing and receiving the same types of payment from our adversaries around the world that Hunter Biden was doing,” said the Kentucky Republican on “Sunday Morning Futures,” a Fox News show. Comer was discussing suspicious activity reports sent by banks to the Treasury Department.

Comer didn’t specify what six decisions Biden made that were allegedly involved.

“Those six decisions are going to be involved in more investigations,” said Comer, adding that they will be revealed at a press conference. “I think some of them the American people know about. Some of them have been out there for a long time.”

The representative added that he is “confident” that the people wiring money to ‘end up’ with the Bidens were expecting a return on their investments.

“There isn’t a single one of those family members that have the ability to do anything to influence foreign policy other than the big guy, Joe Biden,” Comer said.

The congressman said the revelation that more members of the Biden family were being implicated came after a long battle to access reports from the Treasury. As a result, “we have nine and counting Biden family members who are zinged by at least one bank for receiving suspicious wires from our adversaries around the world,” said Comer.

Comer said the money was sent to LLCs created by the family.

“We went in thinking there were around a dozen LLCs,” but it turned out there were several more LLCs than had been thought, with many more countries involved in payments, said the representative.

“China was probably the most reputable country that the Biden family was dealing with, and the question remains, what were these family members doing to receive this money?” said Comer. “There’s no rhyme or reason for some of these Biden family members to receive any type of payment from our adversaries around the world, much less the number that we’ve uncovered, and we’re still digging through these violations.”

The number of family members could increase past nine members, according to Comer

According to Comer, the number of family members could increase past nine members as more documents are examined.

“I believe that number will be at least 12,” he said. “This was the Biden family influence-peddling scheme.”

Rep. Comer said he hadn’t found a “legitimate business” by any in the Biden family.

“I’ve found legitimate businesses that were paying the LLCs that were then turning around and laundering the money back to the Bidens, but I haven’t found any legitimate business dealings on the Biden end,” said Comer. “It looks like if there was a legitimate business dealing in any of these LLCs, it was influence peddling,” said Comer.

Additionally, Comer said none of the Bidens were registered as being foreign
agents.

“Either way, this is bad,” Comer said. “There are more laws that appear to me that have been broken than just tax evasion, and there are a lot more Bidens involved than just the president’s son and brother.”

Comer also said there is no reason why Hunter Biden wasn’t indicted years ago, said Comer. However, he wonders what can be done about so many family members of a sitting president.

“There’s not going to be anybody left for a Christmas picture if the DOJ did their job and went in there and indicted everyone that has any type of fingerprints involved in this influence-peddling scheme,” Comer said. “I mean, it’s the entire family.”
