James Comer Ready to Investigate ‘Anyone’ in Business with the Bidens
House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) said on Monday that he is prepared to investigate “anyone that was in business with the Bidens,” as the committee prepares to hold its first public hearing relating to its investigation of President Joe Biden.
Speaking with reporters at the National Press Club, Comer said he expects Hunter Biden’s “bank records,” to shed light on the Biden family’s possible unlawful business practices.

“Anyone that was in business with the Bidens, that were on these accounts, that were partners in these LLCs, they need to tell everyone exactly what the business was,” Comer said. “You got a two-, three-million-dollar wire from this company that’s affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party, what service were you providing? Because it wasn’t real estate. They weren’t manufacturing anything. What were they doing?”
Comer’s remarks came just days after the Treasury Department denied the Oversight Committee’s “request to disclose 150 suspicious reports flagged by U.S. banks concerning Biden family business transactions,” as Breitbart News reported.
Financial institutions flag for review suspicious wire transfers over $10,000, and wire transfers above that threshold are also reported to the Internal Revenue Services.
As Breitbart News’s Wendell Husebø explained:
The suspicious records will provide details about how the family business operates and desired transparency on Hunter’s anonymous art sales and foreign business transactions, along with knowledge of whether Joe Biden remains compromised by foreign governments through his family’s business.
Comer has already raised concerns about Hunter Biden being “the recipient of anonymous, high-dollar transactions — potentially from foreign buyers” in a letter sent to George Berges, Hunter Biden’s New York art dealer.
Despite Comer’s inquiries, Comer told reporters at the National Press Club that he has no plans to bring Hunter Biden before the Oversight Committee to testify.
“Right now, we just want the bank records,” Comer said of Hunter Biden.

“We’re investigating the president,” Comer said. “[This] isn’t a Hunter Biden investigation. This is an investigation of the president.”
Comer criticized the Treasury for failing to comply with the committee’s request for the banks’ suspicious activity reports relating to the Biden family.
