House Republicans on Thursday laid out plans to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings, calling the probe "a top priority" for the GOP in the new Congress.
Rep. James Comer (R., Ky.), who will chair the House Oversight Committee next year, said Republicans will explore "all avenues" of the Biden family’s business activity in China and Ukraine. Comer alleged that President Biden has "lied" by claiming he never discussed business with his son.
"This is an investigation of Joe Biden, the president of the United States, and why he lied to the American people about his participation in his family’s international business schemes," said Comer, who claimed the committee has uncovered evidence that Hunter Biden committed wire fraud and violated foreign agent laws.
Republicans are launching the full-scale probe amid an ongoing federal investigation of Hunter Biden. Federal prosecutors have been investigating Biden since 2018 for potential tax evasion and violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. But reports have raised concerns that prosecutors are going to go easy on the younger Biden. Prosecutors are reportedly considering charges against Biden related to his taxes and to a gun incident from 2018.
Republicans say they are concerned not only that Joe Biden may have lied about his involvement in his son’s dealings, but that they posed potential national security risks.
