A leading House Republican said on Sunday that members of his panel have finally received documents they say show how the Biden family has been getting money from Communist China, a country considered to be the primary rival to U.S. global supremacy for the foreseeable future.
“We are finally having people cooperate with us,” Comer told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo. “I think we all know the Biden administration is stonewalling, Janet Yellen is stonewalling, not turning over the bank violations. But fortunately, since we’ve last spoken, we actually have bank records in hand.”
“We have individuals who are working with our committee,” Comer continued. “In the last two weeks we’ve met with either these individuals personally or with their attorneys and that that would be four individuals who had ties in with the Biden family on their various schemes around the world.”
“So now we have in-hand documents that show just exactly how the Biden family was getting money from the Chinese Communist Party,” he added.
“And, and I’ll tell you, it’s as bad as we thought, Maria,” he said. “It’s very concerning. And, and in a way, I, I’m kind of glad that the, the Biden attorney, Abbe Lowell and the Biden administration’s been stonewalling us because when I requested that information two weeks ago versus today because of what we have in hand now we have a lot stronger case in court for why we need these documents that the Biden family’s withholding and that the government’s withholding.”
“So they have unintentionally helped our case in our quest to get these documents to where we can give the American people the truth and the transparency that they deserve out of their leadership in Washington,” he added.
“Tell me about the bank records. Mr. Chairman, what have you learned from these bank records that you’ve gotten?” Bartiromo asked at one point. “These are Hunter Biden’s bank records.”
“These are people with the different businesses, so to speak that the Biden family w was involved in with respect to in this instance, China,”Comer said. “And what it appears is there were a lot of transfers from account to account to account many transfers on the same day. That’s probably one reason they received so many suspicious activity reports, which are the bank violations from the banks.”
“The banks would look at this like, well, they must be laundering money or something,” he continued. “I don’t necessarily think they were laundering money, Maria. It looks to me like they were trying to hide the source of that money and the source was the Chinese Communist Party.”
“So my question to the Bidens, when I get that opportunity, is if you’re conducting legitimate business activities, why so many transfers?” he asked. “Why, why were you trying to hide the source of that money?”

The conversation then shifted to President Joe Biden’s former executive assistant, Kathy Chung, who is scheduled to appear before Comer’s committee.
“We have a lot of questions about her role in moving documents. We all know now that Joe Biden has mishandled classified documents and at least five different locations. We know from text messages and email, she got the job to help with the Biden family and moving documents at the recommendation of Hunter Biden.”
“Given Hunter Biden, what we see from bank records and from the emails and text messages with all the influence peddling he’s done, we wonder why was Hunter Biden so concerned about Joe Biden’s documents?” he noted further. “So we have a lot of questions for Ms. Chung, and she’s fortunately going to come in voluntarily and we’ll have an opportunity to hopefully get some answers.”
During the interview, Comer said that Republicans faced obstacles from several government officials, including Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and the Biden administration, while attempting to acquire the documents, Fox News noted.
