House Oversight Chairman Comer says 'Joe Biden lied' about family business dealings
The House committee is finding evidence that first son Hunter Biden brought his father into his deals with foreign nationals from Ukraine and China.
House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer claimed Monday that President Joe Biden "lied" to the public about his involvement in his son's business deals.
"Joe Biden lied to the American people when he said he knew nothing about his son’s business dealings," said Comer, a Kentucky Republican. "Evidence continues to be revealed that Joe Biden was very much involved in his family’s corrupt influence peddling schemes and he likely benefited financially."
First son Hunter Biden brought his father into his deals with foreign nationals from Ukraine and China, according to the committee, which has been probing the first family since Republicans took over the House majority earlier this year.
"It certainly appears that Joe Biden and his family put themselves first and Americans last, but corporate media and the Justice Department continue to cover up for the Bidens," Comer also said.
He added that he looks forward to speaking with Hunter Biden's former business partner Devon Archer about then-Vice President Biden's role in the deals. Archer is expected to testify to Congress this week on the matter.
