House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) claimed to have a BIG announcement this morning that would prove President Joe Biden accepted thousands of dollars from China via his son, Hunter, but what he later posted online and shared with right-wing media turned out to be yet another enormous nothing burger.
Here’s the breathless reporting from Newsmax based on information given to them by Comer:
House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., on Monday released subpoenaed bank records showing that Hunter Biden used a business entity to make monthly payments to his father, President Joe Biden.
The payments to Joe Biden came after Hunter Biden’s business account, Owasco PC, received money from Chinese-state linked companies and other foreign nationals and companies, according to financial records obtained by Comer’s panel.
“Hunter Biden’s legal team and the White House’s media allies claim Hunter’s corporate entities never made payments directly to Joe Biden. We can officially add this latest talking point to the list of lies,” Comer said in a statement.
For his part, Comer posted a video on Twitter in which he made those same allegations.
Just one tiny problem: The payments Comer references were actually repayments of a loan Hunter Biden made to his father, as journalist Yashar Ali noted.
That led to others mocking Comer on social media for his latest giant crock of shit.
What will Comer “uncover” next and suggest is a giant coverup? At the rate he’s going, expect him to accuse the president of caring for his family. How dare he!
