Republicans hit out at Treasury Department for allegedly adding rule to cover Hunter Biden

On Wednesday, Kentucky Republican Representative and House Oversight Committee member Jame Comer railed against the Treasury Department, saying its new Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) rule was added to protect the alleged intrigues of Hunter Biden.

“The Biden administration is restricting congressional access to SARs, and Committee Republicans are investigating whether this longstanding policy change is motivated by efforts to protect Hunter Biden and potentially President Biden from scrutiny,” said he wrote to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. “Although the Committee requested documents and information ‘by June 8, 2022,’ the Treasury Department has not provided any documents or information. »

Comer wrote in the letter that he was told in a June 13 phone call with Treasury officials that the Committee’s Republican staff would not receive SARs unless Democrats joined the demand, despite the Treasury Department’s claims that the reports were provided regardless of party.

“The sudden change in long-standing Treasury Department policy appears to be a broader Biden administration scheme to cover up Hunter Biden and possibly hide information about whether Joe Biden benefited financially from the family’s business dealings.

“We now know that Hunter Biden and other members of the Biden family have racked up at least 150 suspicious activity reports for their shady foreign business dealings,” Comer said in his initial letter to the Treasury.

The classification committee member is now asking that the SARs be returned by July 20, according to the New York Post.

Texas Republican Representative and House Oversight Committee member Pat Fallon also said the Treasury’s withholding of SARs was unacceptable, according to Fox.

“This administration must immediately drop the political charade and allow Congress access to any banking breaches that may have been committed by the Biden family and their associates,” he told the outlet.
