House Oversight Chairman James Comer said the Biden family will receive “two dozen” subpoenas in the coming days related to the family’s overseas business dealings.
“I think you’re going to see rapid action against Biden and I would predict about two dozen subpoenas in the very near future,” Comer, R-Ky., told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday morning futures.“
Comer is leading the House investigation into Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings and is seeking to determine what role President Biden may have played in those dealings. Republicans say the president benefited financially from trade deals his family members made with foreign countries.
Last week, Comer said that in 2017, President Biden received $40,000 in “laundered Chinese money” from his brother and sister-in-law’s bank account in the form of a personal check.
Biden has repeatedly denied any involvement in his son’s business dealings.
“We always planned to do this,” Comer told Bartiromo when asked if the Kentucky Republican planned to question Hunter and Joe Biden and “issue subpoenas.”
“This has been a painful process, Maria. We have been hobbled. We have been followed at every turn, not only by the Bidens’ big lawyers, but also by the federal government. The IRS is hobbled. The DOJ is The Treasury “The FBI has obstructed, and the Democrats on the House Oversight Committee have essentially been Biden’s legal defense team,” he said.
Comer said other members of the House Oversight can “connect the dots” on a series of financial transactions between the president and members of his family which, according to him, amounts to “money laundering”.
“It was very organized. And the reason they made these complicated transactions was to conceal the source of the income and to deceive the IRS out of paying taxes,” he said.
Comer argued that in the coming weeks, the Biden family will claim the funds were loans “because you don’t have to report the loans on your taxes.”
“If you’re the IRS and you just look at someone’s taxes, you’ll never know that Joe Biden received two loan repayment checks — $200,000 and $40,000,” Comer said.
“You wouldn’t know all the money we’re gonna show James Biden hosted and Hunter Biden received loans. This is part and parcel of money laundering, where you deceive the IRS about the income you receive. In other words, you are a tax evader. »
