House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky) blasted the mainstream media Thursday, accusing them of covering for the Biden family in their alleged crimes involving China and money laundering. 

"The media is part of the problem," Comer told the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "The Biden family wouldn't do things like this if they thought they would be held accountable in the media."

Comer previously said his committee had uncovered information suggesting that "10 or 12 Biden family members" participated in efforts to "launder or hide" money from "Communist China and other countries around the world."

The White House pushed back against Comer's probe this week, claiming it is an "evidence-free, politically-motivated 'investigation'" into the Biden family. 

Comer remained focused on the media, calling them "tone deaf" for avoiding coverage of this scandal. 

"I think every American wants to know what the Biden family did to receive all that money," he stated. "And I think the media is tone deaf to a certain degree. Their bias and partisanship blinds them."

He also accused the media of endangering America's national security through their lack of attention on the investigation.

"The media is an adversary," Comer stated. "The media is helping in this. The media has helped compromise our national security by not writing about this and by not demanding answers as to why the Biden family received that money."
