Republican Representative James Comer believes the US Department of Justice (DOJ) will take action against Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, within the next two months.
Comer told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on Friday that he was “pretty confident” that “something is going to happen with the Justice Department in the next 60 days in regards to Hunter Biden because he left a mark. so obvious that no one, even the most partisan Democrat and Biden supporter in the Justice Department, can overlook his wrongdoings anymore.”
Biden is being questioned by the DOJ, unnamed sources cited by The News reportedly said prosecutors are considering charges related to alleged tax violations and a potentially false statement made while purchasing a firearm. The investigation led by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Wilmington, Delaware, focuses on Biden’s financial and business activities in foreign countries when his father was vice president.
The investigation dates back to 2018, and while no decision has yet been made on potential charges against Biden, sources said the probe has intensified in recent months, Les Actualites reported. Federal investigators have investigated whether Biden may have been involved in money laundering, violated US tax laws and acted as an unregistered foreign lobbying agent while working for foreign interests as a consultant and investor. .
Comer said on Fox News that he thinks the Justice Department “is on the verge” that it will have to do something about Biden “very soon.”
He also said there were fears Joe Biden had been “compromised” due to his son’s alleged “shady business dealings”.
In May, the Kentucky lawmaker, who is a top member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, requested information related to the finances of Hunter Biden and other members of the Biden family and associates. in letters sent to the US Treasury Department and more than a dozen banks.
“We are investigating the domestic and international business dealings of President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and other associates and family members of Biden to determine whether these activities compromise the national security of the United States and the ability of President Biden to lead with impartiality,” a letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen read.
Comer said earlier this month that the Treasury is refusing to release the suspicious activity reports it has requested unless Democrats also join the request, CBS reported.
Comer’s office declined to provide further comment to Newsweek. Biden’s attorney, Kevin Morris, also declined to comment.
Newsweek contacted the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Wilmington, Delaware for comment.
