(RightWing.org) – The House Oversight Committee has been ramping up its investigation into alleged crimes involving President Joe Biden and several of his family members. Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) recently discussed plans to review new sources and call key witnesses to shed light on possible instances of bribery and influence peddling.
On June 18, Comer broke down the allegations against the Biden family during an interview on Fox New’s “Life, Liberty & Levin” show. Comer offered a broad overview of the committee’s investigation so far, paying particular attention to its recent finding that more than $1.3 million in funds from a Chinese-based company was reportedly funneled to the president’s brother, James Biden; son, Hunter Biden; and Hallie Biden, the former wife of the president’s deceased son, Beau Biden.

Comer told host Mark Levin that the committee had done its best with the investigation considering the many “obstacles [it] had to overcome” from Biden administration officials. He pointed out that no one expected the panel to obtain the Biden family’s banking records or the Department of Treasury’s documentation of suspicious activities. Comer explained that the committee “would not take ‘no’ for an answer.”
The committee head also discussed the panel’s ongoing struggle to obtain a copy of an FD-1023 form from the FBI. The document contains information from a human source regarding bribery allegations against Biden, spanning back to his time as vice president. Comer said the FBI and Department of Justice refused to follow up and adequately investigate the claims presented by that report and information presented by whistleblowers and other sources.
Continuing, Comer told Levin that the committee would start “bringing in key figures” involved in the Biden family’s “influence peddling schemes” to sit down for depositions. He stressed that the panel’s Republican members had to “fight” the FBI, Justice Department, and House Democrats to gain access to information. Likewise, they struggled with the mainstream media’s lack of interest in truthfully covering the committee’s findings.
