Bank’s money laundering investigator flagged Hunter Biden’s account in 2018, docs show

Rep. James Comer (R-KY) who serves as the chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee suggested that Democrats would turn a public hearing for Hunter Biden into a complete circus with their performative antics.

“Look, this is a serious investigation. This is about public corruption at the highest levels of our government. We have over 10,000 pages of documents that we’ve obtained pertaining to Hunter Biden’s financial transactions with our enemies around the world,” Comer said during an appearance on Wednesday’s edition of “Wake Up America” on Newsmax TV.

“We need to ask him hundreds of questions. If he comes in for one hearing with 24 members having five minutes each to ask questions, with the Democrats yelling and screaming like they do every hearing, we would probably get about 30 to 35 questions here,” he added.

On Tuesday, the Kentucky Republican shut down a ploy by the scandal-soaked presidential son’s attorneys to respond to his subpoena for a sworn deposition by instead testifying in person, a brazen effort to manipulate public opinion and play for sympathy that would also give the adult toddlers in the House a chance to become social media stars by acting out to disrupt the hearing.

“Hunter Biden is trying to play by his own rules instead of following the rules required of everyone else. That won’t stand with House Republicans,” Comer said in a statement posted to the X platform, formerly known as Twitter.

“Our lawfully issued subpoena to Hunter Biden requires him to appear for a deposition on December 13,” he added. “We expect full cooperation with our subpoena for a deposition but also agree that Hunter Biden should have the opportunity to testify in a public setting at a future date.”

Oversight Republicans released another piece of damning evidence of alleged Biden family corruption on Wednesday, a 2018 email from a bank investigator noting “unusual” and “erratic” activity over money received by Hunter Biden from China, $40,000 of which ended up in the bank account of “The Big Guy” himself.

“Long before our investigation into President Biden’s corruption, a bank money laundering investigator raised the exact concerns that we raised publicly about the Biden family business: ‘payments appear erratic,’ ‘does not appear to have any services rendered,’ ‘no current business purpose,’ and ‘China target[s] children of politicians and purchase of political influence through ‘sweetheart deals.’ Those are the words of a bank investigator who was just doing his job. The bank investigator was so concerned about Hunter Biden’s financial transactions with the Chinese company, he wanted to re-evaluate the bank’s relationship with the customer,” Comer said in a statement.

“You’ve got the Democrats on the committee, you’ve got Jamie Raskin, you got Dan Goldman, I mean for all practical purposes they have served as the criminal defense attorneys for the Biden family throughout this whole investigation,” the Oversight boss told Newsmax. “I mean we can’t do anything together in this committee because of the obstruction that the Democrats on the House Oversight Committee are providing.”

“So he knows if he comes in front of a committee you’re gonna have Dan Goldman do like he did during the impeachment inquiry hearing when he filed four or five motions to adjourn during the hearing,” he said. “They do things to disrupt.”
