As news breaks that he’s allegedly giving Hunter preferential treatment regarding tax violations, James Comer has announced that six more members of president’s family have been identified in connection to potential financial corruption.
Joe Biden really does “keep it all in the family.”
The New York Post writes that “the findings come after the Kentucky GOP congressman and other lawmakers on the panel examined suspicious activity reports sent by banks to the Treasury Department alerting of potential criminal activity in transactions involving President Biden’s family.
‘Thousands of pages of financial records related to the Biden family, their companies, and associates’ business schemes were made available to members of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, which confirm the importance of this investigation,’ Comer said in a statement.
‘The Biden family enterprise is centered on Joe Biden’s political career and connections, and it has generated an exorbitant amount of money for the Biden family. We’ve identified six additional members of Joe Biden’s family who may have benefited from the Biden family’s businesses that we are investigating, bringing the total number of those involved or benefiting to nine,’ he said.
On Monday, Comer did not provide any clues as to who the six new Biden family members identified by the committee were.
‘The Oversight Committee will continue to pursue additional bank records to follow the Bidens’ tangled web of financial transactions to determine if the Biden family has been targeted by foreign actors and if there is a national security threat,’ Comer said. ‘We will soon provide the public with more information about what we’ve uncovered to date. The American people need transparency and accountability, and the Oversight Committee will deliver much needed answers.’”
The Kentuckian has been a dog with a bone after taking over the investigation of Joe Biden’s potential corruption. Earlier in the month he revealed concerns that Hunter Biden, the troubled crown prince of the Biden family, had shared classified documents related to Ukraine with business partners in the war-torn country.
New Conservative Post reported he “has concerns about the Biden Family’s ‘influence peddling.’ The Oversight Chairman believes the classified documents and the payments might be connected.
‘We don’t the know the true extent of what he [Joe Biden] has done,’ Comer said. ‘All we know is he had classified documents scattered all over the place dating back to the time as U.S. senator.’
“There is one document in particular that I can tell you from my investigation of Biden family influence peddling that we are very concerned about with respect to the document that Hunter Biden sent to officials at Burisma in Ukraine,'” Comer continued.
Republican Nancy Mace of South Carolina, a member of Comer’s committee, said it is “insanity” that the Biden family’s business dealings have yet to be investigated thoroughly, according to The Daily Caller.
Read several of those Suspicious Activity Reports at the Treasury just now.
The number of Biden family members involved (more than previously known), the amount of money involved (astronomical), the shell companies, the accusations of prostitution rings… wild… pic.twitter.com/fVTdazOi2T

“I just left the Treasury to review over 100 suspicious activity reports on the Biden family. And I have to tell you, there are more Bidens involved than — than we knew previously,” Mace said in a video posted on Twitter.
“And every time you overturn or look under a stone, there’s so much more you have to investigate, because it’s wild, the number of family members involved, and it’s even the amount of money that we’re talking about in these suspicious activity reports, is astronomical.”
She continued: “The accusations therein, the source of the funding, where the money’s going, the shell companies, prostitution rings, etc., it’s insanity to me that it’s not been investigated in the way that it should be done.”
The White House did not respond to Comer’s comments nor requests from the conservative outlet.
The news comes on the heels an IRS supervisor telling lawmakers that he has information suggesting “the Biden administration is improperly handling the criminal investigation into President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and is seeking whistleblower protections, according to people familiar with the matter,” The Wall Street Journal revealed.
“A letter sent to Congress on Tuesday says a career Internal Revenue Service criminal supervisory special agent has information that would contradict sworn testimony by a ‘senior political appointee.’ The supervisor also has information about a ‘failure to mitigate clear conflicts of interest in the ultimate disposition of the case,’ according to the letter.
The supervisor has details that show ‘preferential treatment and politics improperly infecting decisions and protocols that would normally be followed by career law enforcement professionals in similar circumstances if the subject were not politically connected,’ according to the letter.
The letter says the supervisor has been overseeing an ‘ongoing and sensitive investigation of a high-profile, controversial subject since early 2020,’ which it doesn’t name. The investigation at issue is into the younger Mr. Biden, the people familiar with the matter said.”
It has long been suspected that Hunter Biden was being investigated for tax crimes, or rather, that he would be if his father weren’t in charge of the IRS.
A few years ago, Hunter’s “sugar brother,” the producer of the Broadway hit “The Book of Mormon,” Kevin Morris, paid millions of dollars to the president’s son to cover his back taxes.
