House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer believes that more than half a dozen members of the Biden clan may have been involved in various worldwide business schemes that profited off their family name.
Comer, whose committee is investigating the Biden family’s business dealings, shared the insight in a Wednesday night interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
“At the end of this I think we’re gonna see there are probably six or seven Biden family members that were involved in various business schemes around the world,” Comer (R-Ky.) told Ingraham, referring to his panel’s far-reaching probe.
Comer didn’t mention any names in the interview and declined to reveal the identity of the unnamed Biden family member who got proceeds from a $3 million wire to Hunter Biden associate John “Rob” Walker just weeks after Joe Biden left the vice presidency in 2017.
The Oversight Committee chairman first revealed on Monday that bank records obtained via subpoena implicate three Bidens, including one that’s “never before been identified” as being involved in the family’s alleged influence-peddling operation.
“So this just shows how deep the Biden family was involved in this influence peddling scheme,” Comer told Ingraham, adding that it remains unclear what the $3 million transaction was for.
“It looks to me like these people, who are closely aligned with the Chinese Communist Party, sent $3 million to a shell corporation then they turned around and split it three ways with a third going to the Biden family – three different family members for no apparent reason,” Comer said.
“They didn’t invest it in a business. They just, it appears, stuck it in their pocket,” he added.
Comer also revealed during the interview that his committee is “on the hunt for about a dozen more” similar shady wire transfers.
“There’s no explanation for why the Biden’s have received this much money from our adversaries around the world,” Comer argued.
House Oversight Committee staff are currently in the process of reviewing more than 150 suspicious activity reports sent by banks to the Treasury Department alerting of potential criminal activity involving the Biden family.
“Oversight Committee staff will begin reviewing suspicious activity reports in camera at the Treasury Department Wednesday afternoon,” a spokeswoman for the panel told The Post, using a Latin phrase referring to a private review.
The Treasury Department granted the oversight panel access to the suspicious activity reports on Monday after reportedly attempting to stonewall the committee.
Republicans argue that the Biden family’s international business deals create conflicts of interest for the commander-in-chief and may even demonstrate corruption.
