(FreedomWire.org) – Rep. James Comer told Newsmax on Wednesday that the Treasury Department has halted Republican attempts to examine Hunter Biden’s financial records ”at every turn.”

On ”Rob Schmitt Tonight,” the Kentucky Republican said that over 150 transactions flagged for suspicious activity relating to President Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden and his extended family should be turned over to the House Oversight Committee.

An executive order making the records harder to unseal ”got buried in the press because the bigger, more press-worthy executive orders were canceling the Keystone [XL] pipeline and halting construction of the border wall,” Comer argued.

”They slipped this provision in to prevent members of Congress from having access to suspicious activity reports,” he emphasized, adding that the reports are ”essentially the bank notifying the federal government that, ‘We believe our client is committing some type of criminal activity.”’

Comer, who is seeking reelection, believes uncovering the content of the 150 reports could help the House Republican investigation into Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings if and when they take control of the lower chamber in the Nov. 8 elections.

”And at every turn, the Treasury Department has blocked our efforts,” the House Oversight Committee’s top-ranking Republican said.

Meanwhile, Comer said that he thinks intelligence agencies likely ignored Hunter Biden’s ”influence peddling” after he potentially lied to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on a gun background check.

”They have enough other things. From lying on his gun purchase statement, which the Democrats take very seriously … but also, he’s probably committed some type of money laundering … he’s also got all sort of drugs problems,” he claimed.

”This is all on tape. The FBI has it. So, if they didn’t want to bust him for influence peddling, which is by far the worst offense from Hunter Biden, because that’s a national security risk. They could have got him on a host of other things,” Comer stated.

Comer says that Republicans are not investigating Hunter Biden for petty political reasons or out of spite. 

“We’re not investigating because of political reasons,” Comer stated. “We’re not doing it to retaliate because they (the Biden family) harassed the Trump children. We’re doing it because we believe he’s a national security risk, and he has compromised this president. There are many decisions that Joe Biden’s already made that we believe he made to try to block Republican investigations and oversight into Hunter Biden.”

Comer also said that he doesn’t have much faith in the FBI and its current director Christopher Wray to investigate the corruption going on in the federal government. 

“I have a lot of doubts,” Comer concluded. “And he’s (Director Wray) going to be given an opportunity to try to change my doubt. But right now, I have doubts every day that they go without doing anything to Hunter Biden.”

(FreedomWire.org) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the long-serving Democrat from California, refuses to investigate where covid 19 came from. According to Peter Schweizer, the author of “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win,” is due to her very close financial ties to China and that includes her husband. 

Investigations could potentially be launched by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), but Schweizer has said that Speaker Pelosi should not be let off the hook so easily and needs to answer questions about her financial endeavors in China.

It is no secret that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) plays a heavy role in nearly everything that happens in China, making it virtually impossible to avoid them if a foreign national wants to do business in the country.

On Pelosi’s Chinese investments, Schweizer said, “She and her family have strong financial ties in China,” adding, “The covid investigation, to me, is particularly important. I mean, it’s been now more than two years – covid’s happened. In the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi has refused for there to even be a committee hearing on the origins of covid.”

As yet, there has been not a single committee hearing on the wu-flu’s origins and it has been clear for some time now, that the disease did not originate in a wet market in Wuhan, China.

“There’s not been one committee hearing to say, ‘Hey, maybe we should discuss to see where it came from.’ And honestly, I think one of the reasons, as I point out in the book, is she and her family have strong financial ties in China.”

According to Schweizer, Pelosi’s husband and son have also made a ton of money from deals done with the CCP and evidence suggests that the entire Pelosi family is heavily invested in China. Nancy also has questions surrounding her conduct around stock trading.

When recently asked whether or not members of Congress should be able to trade on the stock exchange, Pelosi stated that they should be allowed to, as they are private citizens and that should be their right to do so. However, when you literally control the laws of the land, including legislation that directly affects the stock market – it is beyond a conflict of interest at that point.

Sadly, whatever good was left in Pelosi has been seeping out for years now and we are all left with a third in charge, a corrupt leader, who is only interested in furthering her own agenda for the big bucks.

“She used to be quite critical on Beijing on human rights,” Schweizer says about Pelosi, noting that “she’s really pivoted” in recent years. “That has changed almost entirely.”

“So, if McCarthy comes in, I hope that those investigations happen and he has the power with some congressional committees to actually issue subpoenas. So, how about we have subpoenas and have Hunter Biden and others actually testify under oath about what’s going on.”

It appears that Pelosi may know more about the origins of covid than she lets on about and the fact that she refuses to speak on it, suggests that she may have a reason to hide these as it would undoubtedly expose her own ties and dirty deals with the CCP.

(FreedomWire.org) – The New York Post’s Miranda Devine and Jon Levine are out with another doozie looking at how often the now-first son’s closest business partner was lurking around the White House while Biden was VP during the Obama administration. 

The Post’s look at White House visitor logs between 2009 and 2015 found that Eric Schwerin, “Hunter Biden’s closest business partner made at least 19 visits to the White House and other official locations between 2009 and 2015, including a sitdown with then-Vice President Joe Biden in the West Wing” when Schwerin was “president of the since-dissolved investment fund Rosemont Seneca Partners.”

This fact, of course, makes President Biden’s claims that he was unaware of Hunter Biden’s business dealings increasingly dubious. 

Other meetings between Schwerin found in the White House logs reported by The Post include:

  • Meeting with Joe Biden aide Evan Ryan (10/28/2009)
  • Meeting with Jill Biden special assistant Meg Campbell (2/13/2010)
  • Meeting with Joe Biden assistant Michele Smith (10/24/2010)
  • Meeting with Joe Biden (11/17/2010)
  • Meeting with Joe Biden assistant Kellen Suber (8/22/2011)
  • Meeting with Jill Biden aide Betsy Massey (3/31/2012)
  • Meeting with Joe Biden assistant Michele Smith (2/7/2012)
  • Meeting with Joe Biden’s Director of Administration Faisal Amin (3/28/2013)
  • Meeting with Joe Biden assistant Kathy Chung (5/20/2013)

As The Post’s report explains, Hunter Biden’s business buddy “met with various close aides of both Joe and Jill Biden at key moments in Hunter’s life when he was striking multi-million dollar deals in foreign countries, including China.” And, as Devine and Levine point out from their work pouring over and reporting on the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, emails from that device show that Schwerin “was involved in Joe Biden’s personal taxes and discussed the vice president’s financial future with him.”

What’s more, then-Vice President Biden hired a Rosemont Seneca Partners employee to be a personal assistant, someone The Post previously reported “stayed in close contact with her former bosses, keeping them apprised of visiting dignitaries and official events they might have interest in.”

And Joe Biden now expects Americans to believe he was unaware of Hunter’s business deals — even while Schwerin worked on Joe Biden’s taxes and planned for his financial future and Hunter’s former employee was working for VP Biden while feeding intel back to Rosemont Seneca?

Adding to the murkiness of the relationship between Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and Schwerin inside and outside of the White House is the fact that the Wikipedia entry for Rosemont Seneca Partners was conveniently deleted on Wednesday. Reasoning that the investment firm was “not notable,” Wikipedia joined in the memory-holing of the business’ existence and an editor quoted by The Post “warned that ‘keeping it around’ ran the risk of the page becoming ‘a magnet for conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden.'”

The reasoning is as tone-deaf as it is biased toward protecting the Biden family. The New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell was deemed a conspiracy theory, banned from Twitter, and labeled “disinformation” by supposedly serious Democrat national security leaders…until after Joe Biden was declared the winner in 2020.
