House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) sent waves through the political landscape this week with his predictions of significant new legal woes for Hunter Biden. This revelation comes amid an ongoing congressional investigation into alleged Biden family misconduct.
Comer claimed on Fox Business that he anticipates filing “between six and ten criminal referrals” against Hunter Biden once his committee’s investigation concludes. These criminal referrals encompass a broad range of allegations, the most alarming of which are violations of the federal Mann Act and the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

The congressman, known for his unyielding stance on governmental accountability, strongly backed his accusations with the evidence presented by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) during a recent Oversight Committee hearing. The evidence, he claimed, showcased Hunter Biden’s alleged violations of the Mann Act, a federal law barring the transportation of women across state lines for illicit purposes. Comer stood firm in his assertion, remarking that the evidence was undeniable.
Comer further expounded upon the alleged wrongdoings, stating that Hunter Biden was also involved in money laundering, racketeering, and wire fraud. His stark accusations did not stop with the President’s son. The congressman suggested the likelihood of President Biden’s complicity in a purported $10 million bribery scheme. This, according to an FBI informant’s public statement, allegedly benefited Burisma’s CEO, a company where Hunter Biden formerly served on the board.
The Chairman also pointed to an intricate web of financial transactions involving multiple bank accounts, which would take investigators a decade to unravel. Comer indicated that these findings mirror a pattern discovered in the committee’s investigations into Romania and China.
According to Comer, the business model was straightforward. Hunter Biden would communicate with foreign entities, leveraging potential United States aid and policy decisions in exchange for personal benefits. He characterized this as a pay-off to the President through Hunter Biden.
Comer’s remarks further fueled the controversy surrounding the Bidens, and he didn’t mince words when talking about the treatment Hunter Biden has received from the legal system so far. Describing the President’s son as the “ultimate white privilege guy,” he criticized the perceived leniency in his treatment, citing it as an example of a “two-tiered system of justice.”
