Summary

Ranking Member James Comer and Oversight Committee Republicans are investigating the domestic and international business dealings of President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and other Biden associates and family members to determine whether these activities compromise U.S. national security and President Biden’s ability to lead with impartiality. Hunter and other members of the Biden family have a pattern of peddling access to the highest levels of government to enrich themselves. We are committed to following Hunter Biden and Biden family and associates’ money trail—consisting of many complex, international transactions worth millions of dollars—and providing answers to the American people. The American people deserve to know whether the President’s connections to his family’s business deals occurred at the expense of American interests and whether they represent a national security threat.

Hunter Biden has particularly benefitted from his father’s political career. Despite having no demonstrable qualifications, Hunter Biden has managed a Ukrainian energy conglomerate, helped facilitate the sale of a cobalt mine in the Democratic Republic of the Congo from an American company to a Chinese company, brokered a deal for an oil pipeline in Kazakhstan, provided counsel on the intricacies of Romanian criminal law, and began a career in the arts as an amateur painter.

Rep. James Comer on GOP priority for House oversight: ‘We view Hunter Biden as a national security risk’

The Biden Administration changed the rules to severely restrict Congress’ access to suspicious activity reports in the dark of night and with no explanation. We now know Hunter Biden and other Biden family members have racked up at least 150 suspicious activity reports for their shady foreign business deals. The Treasury Department’s sudden change of longstanding policy appears to be a broader pattern by the Biden Administration to run cover for Hunter Biden and possibly hide information about whether Joe Biden benefited financially from the Biden family’s business transactions. The American people deserve answers and the Biden Administration must comply with congressional oversight.

Rep. James Comer claims White House stonewalling bid for Hunter Biden docs

Treasury faces mounting scrutiny for giving Hunter Biden ‘cover’ with new rule for document requests

Despite Hunter Biden having no training as an artist, the prices sought for his paintings range between $75,000 and $500,000. The White House’s agreement governing the sale of Hunter Biden’s artwork appears to keep buyers’ identities secret, raising both ethics and national security concerns. Additionally, Hunter Biden’s gallerist, Georges Bergès, has received over half a million dollars in federal loans and has admitted that he seeks to become the “lead guy in China” for art.

Who Wants to Buy Hunter Biden’s Art?

Facebook and Twitter’s censorship of American journalism is part of a broader pattern by Big Tech to selectively suppress news and silence conservative views that don’t square with their liberal agenda. This is not the American way and cannot be tolerated
