The House Oversight Committee, led by Chairman James Comer (R-KY), has been tenacious in its pursuit of information regarding bribery allegations against President Joe Biden and the controversial international business ventures involving Hunter Biden.
However, the Biden administration has shown reluctance towards transparency and has often responded to Comer’s requests with delays or outright disregard.
On Wednesday, the committee swiftly dispatched a letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, urgently requesting the provision of “all suspicious activity reports (SARs) related to Burisma executives and entities” to support their ongoing investigation into the alleged Biden bribery scheme.
The committee emphasized that they refuse to follow the footsteps of the FBI, which had allegedly overlooked these allegations for an extended period of time.
The letter left no room for ambiguity as it swiftly and directly addressed the heart of the matter, asserting that the evidence at hand pointed to misconduct within the Biden family.
The letter read, “Dear Secretary Yellen:
The Committee on Oversight and Accountability has reviewed government documents that allege President Biden, while serving as vice president, solicited and received a bribe from a foreign source in return for certain actions. These allegations are consistent with the committee’s ongoing investigation of the Biden family’s foreign business transactions—transactions that subpoenaed bank records have revealed Biden family members and associates profited over $10 million from foreign sources.”
In their urgent plea, they proceeded to formally request the disclosure of all pertinent SARs held by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. They emphasized that the security of the nation hung in the balance, underlining the gravity of the situation.
The letter continued, saying, “The committee seeks to craft legislative solutions aimed at deficiencies it has identified in the current legal framework regarding ethics laws and disclosure of financial interests related to the immediate family members of vice presidents and presidents— deficiencies that may place American national security and interests at risk. The committee is concerned that foreign nationals have sought access and influence by engaging in lucrative business relationships with high-profile political figures’ immediate family members, including members of the Biden family.”
Continuing their letter, they delved into potential legislative actions and expressed their intention to address the matter in the future. Additionally, they explicitly requested the submission of all eligible SARs dating from April 2014 to the present, setting a deadline of July 12.
If President Joe Biden Was Innocent In Foreign Bribery Scheme, He Would Have Spoken Up By Now https://t.co/2eEUvJi613
