According to a report from Fox News, Rep. James Comer (R-KY), who serves as the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee, is demanding answers from Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen on First Son Hunter Biden’s shady foreign business dealings; “the American people deserve to know,” Comer says.
“On May 25, 2022, I wrote to you requesting information regarding Hunter Biden and other Biden associates and family members’ financial transactions flagged by U.S. banks for reporting to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) through Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs),” Comer says in a letter to Yellen.
“The Biden Administration is restricting Congress’ access to SARs, and Committee Republicans are investigating whether this change in longstanding policy is motivated by efforts to shield Hunter Biden and potentially President Biden from scrutiny,” Comer continued.
“Comer also accuses the administration of thwarting congressional oversight, referencing a Wall Street Journal article that he states contains false information – that Treasury has made the requested SARs available to Republican staff,” Fox News reports.
“It is troubling that the Biden Administration is willing to provide a false story to the media to create the appearance of transparency while continuing to thwart congressional oversight,” Comer continues.
“Treasury’s actions call for investigation and raise new questions about the degree to which the Biden Administration is using the federal government to provide cover for the Biden family and its associates … The American people deserve to know whether the President’s connections to his son’s business deals occurred at the expense of the United States’ interests and whether they represent a national security threat.”
