(CNSNews.com) – “I don’t think anyone believes that Donald Trump would be in Manhattan District Court right now, were he not a candidate for president of the United States,” Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, told “Mornings With Maria” on Monday morning.
Comer also questioned why the Department of Justice hasn’t done anything about the Biden family “shenanigans” involving U.S. adversaries, including China — a reference to the Biden family’s alleged influence-peddling scheme.
Just wait, Comer promised:
“Stay tuned, Maria, we’ll have more to report very soon,” Comer said, noting that the Oversight Committee is “working with several banks right now,” including Cathay Bank, to get records of payments made to the Biden family.
“The bank records are coming in,” Comer said.
“I think something else that’s very important to note, we’re in communication with four former Biden family business associates, if you want to call it that. They’re cooperating with our investigation. And I will tell you, it’s very concerning.
“I think that everyone realizes that with our success in getting bank records, there’s nothing to hide. There’s nowhere to hide They’re going to have to explain what all these different LLCs were, and why the banks had all those bank violations suggesting that they were laundering money from China, through all these different LLCs.
“So I think that we’re making significant progress. I know the American people that are keeping up with this wish that we were going faster, but I don’t think anyone thought we would ever have bank records from multiple banks. I don’t think anyone thought treasury would let us have those bank violations.
“We have both now, and the records we have are leading to us getting more bank records from more banks. So this is a concerning trend.
“And again, Maria, I close with this: why hasn’t the Department of Justice done anything about shenanigans that the Biden family’s been doing with adversaries yet but yet Donald Trump’s in court over a campaign — a misdemeanor campaign finance violation? It makes no sense.”
Maria Bartiromo asked Comer about an art show opening this week at the Georges Bergès Gallery in New York, featuring works by Hunter Biden alongside more famous abstract painters
Bartiromo asked Comer if he knows who is buying Biden’s paintings:
“No, we don’t,” Comer said. “And I think that the most important question is, who bought that first artwork?”
In October 2021, a White House spokesman said the buyers of Hunter Biden’s first artworks to be sold at the Bergès Gallery would remain anonymous.
“They may have some legitimate buyers, who knows, for this newest art show,” Comer said on Monday, “but what we’re concerned about is that very first sale of art. We know that the Georges Bergès art gallery owner bragged about being the new link to Chinese buyers of American art, so you know there’s some suspicion here.
“And the fact that the White House won’t disclose who bought that art at those (exorbitant) prices says a lot about who really bought the art.”
