Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Rep. James Comer (R-KY) vowed to subpoena President Joe Biden’s bank record as Congress begins its impeachment inquiry into the president.
Comer, who was speaking on this week’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Night in America,” said there are clear links between the president and the corruption allegation leveled at members of the president’s family.
🚨 An overwhelming amount of evidence shows President Joe Biden abused his public office for his family’s financial gain.

Comer revealed that his committee has subpoenaed bank records from shell companies connected to the Biden family. The GOP lawmaker added that Congress will subpoena personal bank records of members of the Biden family, including Joe Biden’s.
“Well, it is looking like we’re going to be asking for his (President Biden) bank records,” Comer said. “I mean, all roads lead to Joe Biden. From day one, this has been an investigation of Joe Biden, not his son. His son is a key central figure because we believe Hunter was the frontman for the Biden family influence scheme. We’ve already proven that this family was influence peddling. The media and the Bidens said that wasn’t true. I don’t think now they are disputing that. They’re moving the goalposts. They are saying, well, now you haven’t proven yet, maybe the president’s son was selling the illusion of access, but Joe Biden never benefited personally from that. So that’s why our investigation is now because there’s overwhelming evidence that would point to the fact that Joe Biden was receiving benefits from his family’s influence-peddling scheme, and that’s where we continue to investigate.”
🚨 @POTUS knew and participated in his family's influence peddling schemes.

Comer maintained that Joe Biden was complicit in his family’s influence peddling scheme. According to Comer, Joe Biden and his family set up phone calls with foreign nationals under investigation for corruption. The lawmaker added that those foreign nationals were all in trouble and needed help from the U.S. government.

“They(the foreign nationals) were being investigated for corruption. They were trying to get sweetheart deals,” Comer said. “Once the meetings took place —Joe Biden communicated with all of these people— then wire started transferring from those countries to the shell companies of the Bidens.
Comer added that the bank records showed that the Biden family laundered the money from the shell companies into the bank accounts of nine different Biden family members in incremental payments.
