House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer suggested former President Barack Obama knew about the Biden family’s foreign deals with adversaries of the U.S.
Comer told Lou Dobbs on the Great America Show that Obama must have known about the Biden family business.
“I believe, Lou, that it’s because he knew what Joe Biden was doing the last year of his vice presidency,” Comer said, referring to payments worth millions the family’s business collected.
On Wednesday, Comer revealed that the Biden family business received over $10 million from foreign deals in China and Romania in what appeared to be influence peddling which Obama was aware of.
“He knew his son [Hunter Biden] was no good, and he knew this was nothing but a political liability not just for our country, not just for the democrat party, but for Obama’s legacy,” Comer added.
“Because a lot of this happened during the Obama administration.”
Comer added that s Obama’s knowledge of the family’s business contributed to his opposition to Joe Biden’s 2020 candidacy.
“So, I think that’s why Obama didn’t want Joe Biden to run for president,” Comer said.
“I think they knew about this,” Comer said about the business.
“And remember, a lot of these coverups would have happened during the Obama administration with Obama appointees in these deep state bureaucracies.”
Comer said the media should ask Obama if Comer’s hunch is true:
“This would be a great question for Obama: Were you aware of what was going on with Joe Biden with respect to foreign policy and some of these ragtag countries around the world?”
As The Daily Fetched reported last week:
Hunter Biden and his uncle, James Biden, are not reportedly planning to disclose all the information required by Comer’s committee and the House Republicans.
Comer announced his committee would begin issuing subpoenas immediately.
“We know individuals, many are cooperating with us now, but others, not so much,” he said.
“We’re going to start subpoenaing people in the private sector; we’re going to start subpoenaing financial institutions to get us the information. And then we’ll go from there.”
Comer also noted that Hunter’s claim that he “doesn’t have anything to hide” is contradicted by the fact he is refusing to assist in the investigation.
“He could come in front of the House Oversight Committee right now and defend his good name,” Comer said.
“He would have 20 Democrats that would definitely support him, and he could make 26 Republicans look bad if all this information we have from his laptop, all the emails that were in his own words, all the audio that are in his own voice, if for some reason we’re misinterpreting that, then he could make us look bad.
“But we all know that this family was involved in influence peddling. And this administration is doing everything in its ability to try to block oversight,” he continued.
