James Comer’s (R-Ky) big reveal at his press conference this morning was that Hunter Biden and some of his business associates formed ventures that did business with in foreign countries and, GASP, accepted payments as part of those business transactions.
None of the business transactions Comer described were illegal.
They took place while Joe Biden was Vice President. What a shock! I engaged in overseas business while Joe Biden was Vice President – a lot of people did. Was business supposed to pause for four years while Joe Biden was VP.
Moneys received at one point of contact account were then distributed in smaller amounts to other accounts. In other words, a single payment was then divided among the participants. Absolutely normal way of doing business.
A structure of LLCs and other entities was set up to handle the transactions. Again, this is a normal way of doing business, probably set up to handle tax liabilities. Nothing illegal
Comer alleged that participants may have tried to cover up what they were doing but offered no evidence that a cover-up
Comer alleged that some payments may have been intended as influence peddling but offered no evidence of actual influence peddling. For anyone who is defending Justice Thomas because there is no evidence that the millions he received from Harlon Crow influenced his decision making, that should be enough to shut down any criticism of influence peddling regarding Joe Biden.
None of these transactions had any link to Joe Biden. Comer kept referring to the “Biden family” in an effort to create guilt by association. None of these transactions involved the “Biden family,” is baseless scandal mongering.
James Comer has been given a huge budget and unconstrained power to use his House Committee to get the dirt on Joe Biden by swinging a bat at human pinata Hunter Biden.
AND THIS IS ALL HE CAME UP WITH???
Why can’t the Republicans find someone competent to lead the investigation. Or could it be that Comer and his pals barking up the wrong tree.
Please use this thread to discuss Comer’s much ballyhooed press conference this morning. Keep the other Hunter Biden issues in the threads where they have been done to death.
