Rep. James Comer (R-KY), the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said to Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo on Sunday that people are finally starting to comply with the probe into Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Bartiromo inquired if Comer had any new developments to report since a previous conversation aired two weeks ago.
“We’ve had a very good two weeks,” answered Comer. “We are finally having people cooperate with us. I think we all know the Biden administration is stone-walling. Janet Yellen is stonewalling, not turning over the bank violations.”

“But fortunately, since we’ve last spoken,” continued the congressman, “we actually have bank records in hand. We have individuals who are working with our community.”
Comer did not directly identify who those people are but did explain that they have “ties in” Biden and his family.
“In the last two weeks, we’ve met with either these individuals personally or with their attorneys. And 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,” Comer explained.
Comer stated the revelations are “as bad as we thought.”
“It’s very concerning. And in a way, I’m kind of glad that the Biden attorney 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,” said the Kentucky representative.
“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 leaders in Washington.”
The House Oversight Committee chairman has issued a subpoena for 14 years of bank records connected to three people allegedly implicated in the probe of Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings, reported the New York Post.
Comer’s move angered Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), who insisted the subpoenas amounted to “a dragnet of political opposition research on behalf of former President [Donald] Trump.”
