Congressional investigators have uncovered a maze of at least a dozen bank accounts used to funnel foreign money to the Biden family, the House Oversight and Accountability Committee chairman confirmed.
“It’s getting very close to Joe Biden,” Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) said.
In an interview with the “Just the News, No Noise” show, Comer said investigators were allowed to view Suspicious Activity Reports filed with the Treasury Department by banks flagging historic overseas business transactions by the Biden family.
The Treasury Department had stonewalled Comer’s demands for access to the reports, The New York Post reported.
Comer said whistleblowers had supported those financial records.
According to the Kentucky Republican, the new evidence shows that several members of the Biden family received or forwarded funds in the banks accounts used to funnel foreign money. However, the money did not just come from sources in China, Russia, and Ukraine, Comer noted, adding that money also came from the United Arab Emirates, which has become a new investigative interest area.
“The Middle East, that’s very underreported, especially with Jim Biden, the president’s brother,” Comer said.
“He had a lot of deals in the Middle East. We know about a lot of these deals because a lot of them are in federal bankruptcy court right now.
“And that’s the other story here: I don’t know if any of these business deals ever lasted. I mean, they were all scams and schemes and failures. So why would people continue to send this family massive amounts of money?” he asked.
“Because they don’t have any expertise. Were they getting something in return? If so, then Joe Biden would be the primary suspect, because I don’t think that Hunter Biden or Jim Biden, or any of the family members of the Biden family can actually do something on behalf of the government. But Joe Biden could, and that’s why we’re investigating this,” Comer added.
Comer added that investigators have uncovered “over a dozen accounts, at least, and maybe many more” through which foreign money was sent ot the Biden family.
He added that money flowed to several Biden family members, including one who has escaped any public notice.
“We identified a very new Biden family member that I honestly never would have even suspected would have been a recipient of a big paycheck from an account that was funded through two individuals closely aligned with the Chinese Communist Party,” Comer said. “So I think you’re gonna find that there are many Biden family members that were involved in the schemes.”
“It doesn’t make sense for this family to receive these massive amounts of money from our adversaries,” he added.
“They’re not dealing with Canada. They’re not dealing with the Europeans, you know, the normal European Union countries. They’re dealing with countries like Russia and China, and the United Arab Emirates. I mean, it’s bizarre some of the countries that are doing business with the Bidens,” Comer said.
Joe Biden has repeatedly denied thar he was involved in or benefited from his son Hunter’s business dealings, claiming such investigations were just political paybacks.
However, some White House officials say Biden likely met with some of Hutner’s foreign business partners, including ones from Ukraine and China.
Comer said information from cooperating witnesses who allege money flowed from foreign sources has further cemented information in the bank records.
“One of the things that all of our whistleblowers have told us,” Comer said, “is that they were all — through these LLCs — paying for things for Joe Biden. So that’s very curious, you know. This is getting to the point where it’s getting very close to Joe Biden.”
“I mean, he’s not going to be able to say that he had no knowledge of his family’s business activities, because a lot of these people that sent this money to the LLCs that then sent it to the Bidens, Joe Biden then met with, especially during the last year of his vice presidency,” Comer continued.
“So, you know, Biden was in on the game. But what we want to know is did he benefit personally from it? We know his family did. But did he benefit personally, and that’s what we’re investigating,” he said.
Comer said that if records corroborate with testimonies that money got funneled to Joe Biden, Biden is in big trouble.
“There’s so many problems,” he said. “He would have ethics violations, disclosure violations, tax evasion problems. So at the end of the day, we’re investigating Joe Biden. I know the press calls it the Hunter Biden investigation, but there’s so many Biden family, I mean, it’s investigating Joe Biden for the Biden family influence peddling. And I can tell you with confidence, they were influence peddling.”
