(SNews) – House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has vowed to issue subpoenas for Democrat President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Comer slammed the Biden family as “tax cheats” and warned they will be served with “two dozen” subpoenas in the coming days.
The top Republican said his committee is upping the ante on its investigations into the Biden family’s overseas business dealings.
Comer issued the warning during an interview with Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.”
The congressman is leading the House investigation into Hunter Biden’s foreign business entanglements.
He is looking to determine what role President Biden may have played in any dealings.
Republicans allege the president has financially benefited from business deals made by his family members with foreign nations.
Some believe that Joe Biden is, in fact, the head of the family business, and not Hunter.
Last week, Comer said that President Biden received $40,000 in “laundered China money” in 2017.
The money received was from the bank account of his brother and his sister-in-law in the form of a personal check.
Biden has repeatedly denied any involvement with his son’s business dealings.
Bartiromo when asked if the Kentucky Republican plans on questioning Hunter and Joe Biden and “getting subpoenas out.”
“We’ve always planned on doing that,” Comer replied.
“This has been a painful process, Maria.
“We’ve been obstructed.
“We’ve been followed at every turn, not just by the Bidens’ big money attorneys, but also by the federal government.
“The IRS is obstructed. The DOJ is obstructed.
“The Treasury has obstructed,” he said.
“FBI has obstructed, and the Democrats on the House Oversight Committee have pretty much been the Biden legal defense team.”
Comer said the other House oversight members can “connect the dots” on a series of financial transactions between the president and his family members that he said amount to “money laundering.”
“This was very organized,” he said.
“And the reason they did these complicated transactions, was to disguise the source of the revenue and to deceive the IRS from paying taxes.”
Comer argued that in the coming weeks, the Biden family will claim the funds were loans “because you don’t have to report loans on your taxes.”
“If you’re the IRS and you’re just looking at someone’s taxes, you would never know that Joe Biden got two checks for loan repayments – $200,000 and $40,000,” Comer said.
“You wouldn’t know about all the money that we’re going to show that James Biden took in and Hunter Biden took in from loans.
“It’s an integral part of money laundering, where you deceive from the IRS about the revenue you’re taking.
“In other words, you’re a tax cheat.”
