Comer: Delay Hunter Biden Indictment, More Evidence Ahead

House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) has urged the Department of Justice (DOJ) to delay any indictment of Hunter Biden until he releases new evidence on Wednesday. The Kentucky Republican congressman alleges that he has uncovered bank records documenting a pay-to-play bribery scheme involving the Biden family.

“My message to the Department of Justice is very loud and clear. Do not indict Hunter Biden before Wednesday,” Rep. Comer told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday. Comer asserts that the DOJ and IRS may be unaware of crucial details in the case as they haven’t dug deep enough. Comer’s committee, however, has spent the past hundred days poring over bank documents, meeting with former Biden associates, and engaging with whistleblowers.

President Joe Biden and his son Hunter have both denied any wrongdoing. However, Comer claims that the upcoming report will reveal that the Biden family received money from several countries in exchange for policy decisions benefiting their interests. He also alleges that the number of family members involved is more extensive than previously known.

Comer’s call for a delay comes as federal prosecutors reportedly near a decision on a potential Hunter Biden indictment stemming from a years-long probe into possible tax and gun-related violations. The congressman argues that the possible indictment could be a “slap on the wrist” compared to the information set to be unveiled on Wednesday.

The Oversight Committee’s report is expected to disclose bank records, numerous limited liability corporations, and transactions involving multiple Biden family members receiving money from adversarial countries. Comer believes this is not a coincidence, stating, “We believe this was done in exchange for something that then-Vice President Biden and now President Biden would have done.”

In addition to the bank records, Comer revealed last week that an FBI whistleblower filed a confidential human source report in the summer of 2020 alleging a pay-to-play bribery scheme directly involving Joe Biden. He has subpoenaed that document with a May 10 deadline.

“More and more evidence is pointing towards Joe Biden,” Comer said. “Obviously, Joe Biden was involved in all this despite the fact that he lied to the American people, despite the fact that his press secretary continues to lie about it.”

Despite these allegations, President Biden has continued to express support for his son, Hunter, and dismissed claims that potential charges would impact his presidency. “I trust him. I have faith in him, and it impacts my presidency by making me feel proud of him,” the president said.

As the May 10 deadline approaches, all eyes will be on the House Oversight and Accountability Committee’s press conference and the potential ramifications for the Biden family.
