House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman Republican James Comer of Kentucky, along with Republican lawmakers from the panel, are today conducting a press conference to provide an update on the investigation into the Biden family’s influence peddling to enrich themselves, and to announce next investigative actions.
The press conference will be conducted in House Radio-TV Gallery Studio A (HVC 117) at 9:00 a.m. ET and will be available through this link https://www.youtube.com/@oversightandaccountability/streams.
Chairman Comer told FOX News congressional leaders will release a memo detailing the Biden family's overseas transactions, which will include the countries and family members involved in the alleged "influence peddling" scheme.
Wednesday is going to be a bad day for the White House, and it's going to be interesting to see what Joe Biden has to say, Comer told co-hosts Todd Piro and Ashley Strohmier Tuesday. "He lied about the laptop. He lied about his knowledge of his family's shady business dealings. He lied about his involvement in his family's shady business dealings."
"He lies when he says his son has done nothing wrong, so it's going to be judgment day tomorrow for the White House," he continued.
"You can't lie on bank records, and one thing that all the different banks that we dealt with have said is that this family was involved in money laundering scheme," Comer said. "So these are some very serious charges, and any other American family would have already been indicted and probably gone to prison for some of the things that the Biden family's done." The Oversight Committee has been investigating the Biden family’s influence peddling enterprise to determine if the Biden family has been targeted by foreign actors, if President Biden is compromised, and if there is a national security threat. The Committee has already obtained thousands of pages of financial records related to the Biden family and their associates’ transactions. Recently, the Committee revealed one deal that resulted in several members of the Biden family and their companies receiving over $1 million in more than 15 incremental payments from a Chinese company through a third party.
We are betting this is not hype and there are going to be some bombshells at the press conference because, just as more evidence has been coming to light about the Biden family’s influence peddling, the White House decided to block the New York Post from attending press events. The New York Post and reporter Miranda Devine have broken many of the most important Biden corruption stories, including the Hunter Biden “laptop from Hell” story.
The Comer press conference and the ban on the New York Post come as federal prosecutors near a decision on criminally charging first son Hunter Biden for tax fraud and other crimes. Hunter Biden’s legal team met with Justice Department lawyers on April 26 in Washington in what could be a final step before a charging decision.
The New York Post reported President Biden attracted attention over the weekend by attending church in Washington Sunday with his younger brother James Biden, who partnered with Hunter on a variety of international dealings.
On Friday, the president declined to take reporter questions by falsely claiming he would host a “major news conference” that afternoon — two days after House Republicans subpoenaed the FBI for a file that a whistleblower said alleged that Joe Biden took bribes.
The New York Post has extensively reported on Hunter Biden’s business dealings, as the paper reported there are extensive documented ties between President Biden and his son’s business dealings — and congressional Republicans have subpoenaed bank records of Biden family associates and reviewed bank Suspicious Activity Reports in an effort to track the flow of funds.
The Biden influence peddling operations the Post has brought to light are:
In 2013, Hunter co-founded with Chinese state entities BHR Partners, which was registered 12 days after he joined then-VP Biden aboard Air Force Two for an official trip to Beijing, the Wall Street Journal reported. Hunter introduced his dad to BHR CEO Jonathan Li during the trip to China’s capital and Joe Biden later wrote college recommendation letters for Li’s children. The current status of Hunter’s 10% stake in the firm, which says it manages nearly $2.2 billion in assets, remains unclear.
In a different Chinese venture, Hunter and James Biden received at least $4.8 million in 2017 and 2018 from CEFC China Energy. Joe Biden was referred to as the “big guy” in a May 2017 email that said he was due a 10% cut, and an October 2017 email from first son Hunter Biden’s laptop identifies Joe Biden as a participant in a call about CEFC’s attempt to purchase US natural gas.
In 2015, Joe Biden hosted his son’s Mexican business associates at the vice president’s residence in Washington. In 2016, Hunter Biden emailed one of them, Miguel Aleman Magnani — apparently while en route to Mexico aboard Air Force Two with yet another business associate — complaining that he hadn’t received reciprocal business favors.
At an April 16, 2015, dinner at DC’s Cafe Milano, then-VP Biden joined his son and a small group including Vadym Pozharskyi of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma — which paid Hunter up to $1 million per year to serve on its board — a three-person Kazakhstani delegation and Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina and her husband, former Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov. Baturina allegedly paid $3.5 million to a firm associated with Hunter Biden in February 2014 as she sought out US property investments.
It should also not go unnoticed that Baturina and another Russian billionaire who sought out US property investments with Hunter Biden have avoided President Biden’s sanctions against Russia’s business elite over the more than one-year war in Ukraine.
