House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said on Monday that he has identified “six additional members” of the Biden family who “may have benefited” from Biden family business deals. He vowed to continue to investigate whether those dealings pose a “national security threat.”

Comer (R, KY) and members of the committee like Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R, GA) visited the Treasury Department on Monday to look at financial records related to the Biden family and their past business associates as part of their ongoing investigation.
“Thousands of pages of financial records related to the Biden family, their companies, and associates’ business schemes were made available to members of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, which confirm the importance of this investigation,” Comer said in a statement Monday.
“The Biden family enterprise is centered on Joe Biden’s political career and connections, and it has generated an exorbitant amount of money for the Biden family,” Comer said.
After reviewing documents, Comer said the panel has “identified six additional members of Joe Biden’s family who may have benefited from the Biden family’s businesses that we are investigating, bringing the total number of those involved or benefiting to nine.”
“The Oversight Committee will continue to pursue additional bank records to follow the Bidens’ tangled web of financial transactions to determine if the Biden family has been targeted by foreign actors and if there is a national security threat,” Comer said, vowing to “soon provide the public with more information about what we’ve uncovered to date.”
He added: “The American people need transparency and accountability, and the Oversight Committee will deliver much needed answers.”
Fox News reported:
The viewing of the additional financial documents came after the Treasury Department last month notified Comer that it would give the committee “in camera access” to suspicious activity reports (SARs) related to Hunter Biden and the Biden family’s foreign business deals.
The Treasury Department declined to comment on the matter, however, in past letters, the agency has noted this is law enforcement-sensitive data and protected by Bank Secrecy Act.
Last month, Fox News Digital reported that members of the Biden family received more than $1 million in payments from accounts related to Hunter Biden’s business associate Rob Walker and their Chinese business ventures in 2017, according to financial records subpoenaed by the House Oversight Committee.
Those records were obtained after the committee subpoenaed Bank of America, which revealed that “at least three family members” received lucrative payments from a bank account belonging to Walker. That account is labeled as “Robinson Walker, LLC,” and one of the family members is Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s son Beau.
A spokesperson for Hunter Biden’s legal team confirmed that payments in March, but they made sure to point out that the accounts “belonged to Hunter, his uncle, and Hallie – nobody else.”
Hunter Biden confirmed the investigation into his “tax affairs” in December 2020, after his father was elected president.
The investigation is led by Trump-appointed Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss.
