As the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. James Comer is on a mission to expose any and all shady deals and potential crimes involving President Joe Biden, his drug-addicted son, Hunter, and his brother, James Biden.
On Monday, the Kentucky Republican brought the Secret Service into the mix, calling for an investigation into the federal law enforcement agency on “Fox & Friends First” for its alleged role in running cover for Hunter.

Comer’s interest in the Secret Service follows a new report from the New York Post, which suggests, thanks to a trove of emails secured by Judicial Watch via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the Secret Service “obscured the agency’s alleged involvement in a police probe after Hunter Biden’s girlfriend ditched his gun in a trash can.”
The lawmaker called the agency’s actions “bizarre.”
“There are numerous instances where the Secret Service came and tried to bail Hunter out when he was in a jam, when he was in California and getting in all kinds of trouble, getting kicked out of a very exclusive hotel there,” Comer said. “The Secret Service showed up to try to see if there was some way they could get him back to Delaware to his family to protect him.”
The Secret Service was intervening on Hunter’s behalf, Comer said, even during those times when Joe Biden was not receiving protection from the agency, as was the case during the handgun debacle.

“And then with this gun application,” Comer said, “there’s reports that the Secret Service went and visited the gun dealer and wanted a copy of the application.”
“And I don’t believe the gun dealer gave the Secret Service a copy of that application,” he continued, “but regardless of the fact at that point in time, Joe Biden did not have Secret Service protection.”
“Joe Biden received Secret Service protection six months after he left the vice presidency and at the point when he declared for President,” Comer explained. “So there was about a two-and-a-half-year period there where the American people weren’t providing Secret Service protection for the Bidens, yet there are numerous instances where the Secret Service always showed up to try to help Hunter Biden.”
“It’s bizarre,” Comer stated. “And this is another set of questions that Joe Biden needs to come forward and be transparent, not just with the American people, but especially with the House Oversight Committee, because we have a major investigation here and the Secret Service should now [be] a part of it.”
Judicial Watch has been investigating the Secret Service’s involvement in the handgun incident for some time.
As BizPac Review previously reported, in December, the Secret Service revealed it was in possession of more than 100 records related to the scandal after telling Judicial Watch in response to a FOIA request it had no responsive records.

“The Secret Service’s changing story on records raises additional questions about its role in the Hunter Biden gun incident,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton at the time. “One thing is clear, Judicial Watch’s persistence means the public may get records that the Secret Service suggested didn’t exist.”
