Rep. James Comer, Republican of Kentucky, said the Biden administration surprised Republicans investigating the Biden family’s business ties and “unwittingly helped” the probe.
“In a way, I’m glad that Biden’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, and (the) Biden administration have surprised us,” Comer told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“When I asked for that information two weeks ago and today, because of what we have now, we have a much stronger case in court as to why we need these documents that are being withheld by the Biden family and that are being withheld by the government,” he said.
“So they’ve unwittingly helped us get these documents in our case so we can give the American people the evidence and transparency they deserve,” Comer added.
The Kentucky congressman is chairman of the House Oversight Committee investigating the Biden family’s domestic and international business dealings.

“But fortunately, since we last spoke, we have the bank records in hand. We have people who are working with our committee. In the last two weeks, we’ve met with those people in person or with their attorneys.” Comer said.

“We now have documents in our hands that show how the Biden family was getting money from the Chinese Communist Party, and let me tell you, it’s as bad as we thought, Maria, it’s very disturbing,” he added.

Comer told Bartiromo that the committee has bank records of people connected to various businesses the Biden family was involved in and found “many account-to-account transfers.” Comer said he believes frequent money transfers were made to help hide the origin of the funds.

“The banks would see this as money laundering or something. I don’t necessarily think they were laundering money, Maria. I think they were trying to hide the source of that money and the source was the Chinese. The Communist Party,” Comer said.
