The House Oversight Committee said Tuesday that the U.S. Treasury Department is providing the investigatory committee with access to Hunter Biden’s Suspicious Activity Reports after months of delay.

The revelation is the latest chapter in the committee’s ongoing investigation into the president’s son and his associates. The lawmakers concerned with the issue argue the president could be compromised if foreign sources have knowledge of his or his son’s alleged wrongdoing.

“According to bank documents we’ve already obtained, we know one company owned by a Biden associate received a $3 million wire from a Chinese energy company two months after Joe Biden left the vice presidency,” House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer, R-Ky, said “Soon after, hundreds of thousands of dollars in payouts went to members of the Biden family.”

Lawmakers are also looking into Hunter’s associates. They sent letters to James Biden, and Eric Schwerin demanding they hand over documents concerning their foreign dealings.

Now, the committee has reportedly issued subpoenas to some of Hunter’s business associates as well.

“We are going to continue to use bank documents and suspicious activity reports to follow the money trail to determine the extent of the Biden family’s business schemes, if Joe Biden is compromised by these deals, and if there is a national security threat,” Comer said.

The committee still blasted the Biden administration, saying the Treasury Department delayed in providing access to the files.

“After two months of dragging their feet, the Treasury Department is finally providing us with access to the suspicious activity reports for the Biden family and their associates’ business transactions,” Comer said. “It should never have taken us threatening to hold a hearing and conduct a transcribed interview with an official under the penalty of perjury for Treasury to finally accommodate part of our request. For over 20 years, Congress had access to these reports but the Biden Administration changed the rules out of the blue to restrict our ability to conduct oversight.”

  1. Good. Almost any other POTUS (except the chosen one, Obama) would be under nuclear heat for this.
    Trump has endured far more for far less.

    But hey. Grandpa is introducing fascism (err, saving the planet) so he stays untouched. Priorities.

    Can’t ditch the puppet until he’s no longer useful. The Alphabet gang isn’t ready, Harris is unelectable, and BLM is already last years news.

  2. China, China, China. I’s good that people are finally looking into this; it’s also interesting how they are all tippy toeing around the Biden’s nefarious dealings in Ukraine.

  3. The smart people know that all the resistance from every government agency tells us they are all in the same deep state coup. Nothing short of a do over is going to fix this. There is too much money and power for them to be honest and let the taxpayer see where the money has gone. It is time for a new game plan with Washington gutted of lawyers, lobbyist and politicians.

  4. The point of government is to make money for those in government, their family and clients.

    Once you understand that, everything the government and the junta do make sense.

  5. Let’s see, people under oath corroborating what is on the laptop, that the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES TOOK BRIBES. Top security officials with top secret clearances claiming before an election that it was probably Russian disinfo. NOTHING TO SEE HERE, CAN’T WE JUST MOVEON.ORG? Why do you finance a racket, suckers? It’s not like they have a gun to your head,,,,,,oh wait……

    • Actually why are your great grand chillun financing this racket? Don’t you think there should be a conscientious objector status for taxpayers?

    • I wonder how long this nothingburger of an investigation is going to go on before the GOP gives up. How much money will be wasted before they do? This is like crack to them.

      But hey, keep writing in all caps. That should help.

        • I guess if you selectively watch the January 6th video then yes, nothing to see here. If you see the injured Capitol Police and the damaged property, then its a different story. But please, continue with your non-sequitur.

          • How about the people killed by police that day ? Don’t they get a mention in your post ? 1/6 was a fed job which spawned from the Governor Whitman Kidnapping hoax which involved no less than 10 Federal Agents , also the Agent in Charge from the FBI office in Detroit was promoted to Agent in Charge of the Washington DC office … why was ray epps on the FBI Most wanted list for a whole one day and the he was off the list ? He was seen on tape whispering into a man ear who then starts tearing down a barrier. Your post about watching selected videos is laughable considering the 1/6 committee has admitted they didn’t even watch the videos …. But hey you can continue to live on CNN, MSNBC and get all your facts from them .

        • It’s tough. I imagine, having voted for Biden and vp stoner-sleeps-to-the-top, realizing now that your an idiot (not so useful).
