Rep. James Comer blasted Joe Biden for his and his family’s shady business practices as the scandal surrounding the president’s foreign “bribery scheme” continues to unfold.
The Kentucky congressman said Biden had leveraged U.S. government resources for financial gain.
“How would you describe Joe Biden leveraging a billion dollars to get a prosecutor in Ukraine fired, and his son continues to get paid? How would you describe that?” host Sean Hannity said. “What words would you use? What adjectives?” Sean Hannity asked Comer.
“It’s unimaginable,” Comer said. “I can’t think of a worse thing that a president in history has done. This is a president who has a history of using foreign aid and leveraging it for his family’s benefit.”
“Look at that form 1023, Sean. It showed — it dated back to 2017,” Comer added.
“It said that the oligarch paid Joe Biden a bribe of $5 million.”
“He called Joe Biden the big guy, and he said that the investigators would have an impossible job of ever tracking that money down because they were going to launder it through various different banks and shell companies,” Comer added.
“That’s exactly what we’ve proven on the House Oversight Committee, and then you have the tape that you just played from 2017 where Joe Biden admitted to leveraging foreign aid tax dollars,” he added.
“So, the FBI knew this all along, yet they never investigated this one time. Thankfully, now, the House Oversight Committee is.”
As The Daily Fetched reported on Friday, Comer said the Biden family accepted as much as $30 million from foreign nationals.
“We have more bank records coming in; we’re going to exceed $10 million this week. And I think we’ll get up to between $20 and 30 million,” Comer (R-Ky.) told Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo on the esculating Biden scandal.
On Thursday, Comer noted the committee hasn’t begun probing first brother James’ overseas business dealings, which could push the figures the Biden family accepted even higher.
Chairman Comer told Fox News host Trey Gowdy that even more FBI documents alleging Biden family bribery schemes exist.
“We had whistleblowers approach Senator Grassley about their concern that there was this form 1023 in existence and the FBI had never investigated it,” Comer said.
“Senator Grassley and I got on the phone with Director Wray, and Senator Grassley told Director Wray that both Senator Grassley and myself had already read the form 1023 from a whistleblower, so we knew darn well it existed,” he said.
Comer said he discovered two footnotes in the 1023 form referencing other 1023s.
“Once the FBI allowed me and Jamie Raskin, my counterpart on the House Oversight Committee, to go in and look at it, I read it again and then realized that there were two footnotes in there that referenced other 1023s,” he said.
“This is going to turn out, I think, a lot like the suspicious activity reports that the Treasury Cabinet had on the Bidens,” Comer said.
“There are a lot more of these than what the federal government wants to admit, and the question is, why hasn’t the federal government done anything about it?” he continued.
