House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) is using his power to investigate every nook and cranny of the Biden family, and revealed his latest thoughts on the matter on Friday. Some conservative movement allies say that he deserves credit, but also that Congress' job isn't done yet.
On Friday, Comer told Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) what his committee's next steps are and provided some key insight into the matter, as reported by the New York Post.
"We have more bank records that we've received,"
Comer said to Cruz on his podcast "The Verdict."
"We're working on a third memorandum,"
he said. "They will show transactions from Ukraine and Russia."
Comer has always been quick to point out that his committee's work is ultimately about the president - not a deep-dive of the president's sons or family members' personal problems.
To that extent, Comer said, "Joe Biden has been selling access to our enemies for decades - long before [first son Hunter Biden] was involved."
The Post also noted that the Kentucky Republican also claimed that he believed that family bribes could explain many of the mind-boggling decisions as president.
"I think there are certain policy decisions that Joe Biden has made since he's been president that the only explanation can be because of the money his family received,"
Just two days earlier, America and Comer's committee heard shocking, sworn testimony about the IRS investigation into Hunter Biden. After that House Oversight hearing, The Heritage Foundation's "Oversight Project"
Director Mike Howell emailed The Daily Wire his reaction.
"Chairman Comer is to be commended for his dogged investigation and literally providing the receipts via bank records,"
Howell said. "The full weight of Congress should be behind achieving actual accountability, immediately."
Still, Howell noted that the GOP Congress is tasked with actually implementing change - not simply uncovering the illicit behavior.
"The goal here is the de-weaponization of government, not just exposure, and Congress' efforts will be judged by that standard,"
Howell also noted, "This sort of activity, running a multimillion dollar international play to pay scheme involving the current President of the United States, is usually reserved for third world countries."
The Heritage Foundation started the Oversight Project "to make government more transparent to the public and to allow Congress to use its oversight authorities with maximum effectiveness."
Their work includes fighting Hunter Biden's plea deal and getting to the bottom of it how it came about.
"We are fighting this at Heritage in federal court and will be formally opposing the plea deal next week,"
Howell told The Daily Wire. "In that fight, we forced the DOJ to admit that it has over 2,500 pages of communications between [U.S. Attorney David Weiss's] office and DOJ or between Weiss' office and other judicial districts about the Hunter Biden investigation. That's a substantial amount of coordination for a supposedly independent investigation. The Hill should subpoena and obtain that document set immediately."
Howell also praised the two IRS Whistleblowers - Gary Shapley and Joe Zeigler - for testifying before Comer.
"The courageous IRS whistleblowers provided sworn testimony today confirming major political interference into the Hunter Biden investigation,"
Howell added. His full statement to The Daily Wire can be read here
As for who else knew about Biden's potential impropriety, Comer speculated to Cruz that even former President Barack Obama might have known what sort of scheme the Biden clan was allegedly running.
"I think that Obama knew this was going on towards the end of his presidency,"
Comer said on Friday. "And I think that's why Obama didn't want Biden to run for president."
