(CNSNews.com) – Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said it’s been a “very good two weeks” for getting people to cooperate with the committee’s investigation into alleged Biden family influence-peddling.
Based on what he’s learned in those two weeks, Comer said he believes the Bidens were trying to hide the source of the money that Hunter Biden was getting from his business dealings in China:
“And the source was the Chinese Communist Party,” Comer told “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“So, my question to the Bidens, when I get that opportunity, is, if you’re conducting legitimate business activities, why so many (bank) transfers? Why were you trying to hide the source of that money?”
Comer said people connected to the Bidens’ business dealings are finally cooperating with the committee:
“These are people affiliated with the different businesses, so to speak, that the Biden family was involved in, with respect to, in this instance, China. And what it appears is, there were a lot of transfers, from account to account to account, many transfers on the same day.
“That’s probably one reason they received so many suspicious activity reports…The banks would look at this, like, they must be laundering money or something. I don’t necessarily think they were laundering money,” Comer said. “It looks to me like they were trying to hide the source of that money.”
Comer has accused the Biden administration of “stonewalling” his committee’s oversight investigation by refusing to hand over the suspicious activity reports that are filed by banks.
“But, fortunately, since we have last spoken, we actually have bank records in hand. We have individuals who are working with our committee.
“In the last two weeks, we have met with either these individuals personally or with their attorneys. And that would be four individuals who had tie-ins with the Biden family on their various schemes around the world.
“So now we have in hand documents that show just exactly how the Biden family was getting money from the Chinese Communist Party. And I will tell you, it’s as bad as we thought, Maria. It’s very concerning.
“And, in a way, I’m kind of glad that the Biden attorney Abbe Lowell and the Biden administration has been stonewalling us, because, when I requested that information two weeks ago, versus today, because of what we have in hand now, we have a lot stronger case in court for why we need these documents that the Biden family is withholding and that the government’s withholding.
“So they have unintentionally helped our case in our quest to get these documents to where we can give the American people the truth and the transparency that they deserve out of their leadership in Washington.”
Comer said Kathy Chung — Joe Biden’s former executive assistant who helped pack up his vice presidential office — is one of the people who is cooperating with the committee:
“Well, we’re going to have a transcribed interview with Ms. Chung,” Comer said.
“We have a lot of questions about her role in moving documents. We all know now that Joe Biden has mishandled classified documents in at least five different locations. We know from text messages and e-mails she got the job to help with the Biden family moving documents at the recommendation of Hunter Biden.
“Given Hunter Biden, what we see from bank records and from the e-mails and text messages, with all the influence peddling he’s done, we wonder, why was Hunter Biden so concerned about Joe Biden’s documents?
“So we have a lot of questions for Ms. Chung. And she’s, fortunately, going to come in voluntarily. And we will have an opportunity to hopefully get some answers.”
