Kentucky Rep. James Comer has criticized efforts to allegedly obstruct Republican investigations into the Biden family, saying legal teams, banks and bureaucracies are conspiring to quash attempts to uncover the truth, while claiming that email evidence implicated Joe and Hunter Biden in an influence scheme “beyond a shadow of a doubt”.
“We are faced with a disability unprecedented in the history of the congressional investigation,” he told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on Sunday.
“Not only are we being obstructed by the Biden legal team, we are also being obstructed by the Justice Department, the FBI, the Secret Service, the IRS, and by Democrats on the House Oversight Committee.” And the next question is, are we going to get in the way of new Special Counsel David Weiss investigating this matter?”

Comer, who is leading the investigation into alleged Biden interference, said he believes the next bank filing Republicans plan to subpoena would provide more details about Joe Biden’s involvement in the deals under investigation.
Comer’s appearance on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures comes days after he sent a letter urging the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to send unredacted emails related to Ukraine and Burisma to the then Vice Presidents Biden and Hunter Biden.
“I think we gave them five business days. So the deadline will end around Wednesday of this week. We expect the National Archives to cooperate with our investigation. We do not have to prove the purpose of this investigation. I think everyone knows now.”

From the information already received by Republicans in the House of Representatives, Comer presented findings that he believed show that the President used three pseudonyms in emails from government officials and added some emails related to Ukraine and with Hunter’s name appended to it.
“We’ve always heard the White House say Hunter Biden is not an employee of government, he is not part of government,” he said.
“They couldn’t understand why House Republicans on the Oversight Committee were investigating Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden because Hunter wasn’t part of the government. If that’s true, then why was he getting emails from the government?”

Comer also claimed the evidence against Biden was “growing every day” showing that he visited Ukraine “solely for the purpose” of dismissing Ukrainian special prosecutor Viktor Shokin, citing a transcribed interview with Hunter’s business partner Devon Archer, in whom Archer said Burisma’s owners had been “pressuring”. “Hunter for help from Washington.”
“Of course the Democrats tried to say, ‘That could have been anyone in Washington.’ “Well what we have now learned is that Joe Biden used a fake email name to receive correspondence from his associates that he impersonated Hunter Biden,” he said.
“Look, it’s obvious that Joe Biden just abused his power as Vice President to protect his son who was receiving millions and millions of dollars from this corrupt Ukrainian energy company. And this email brings Joe Biden and Hunter Biden into this.” Corruption plot without a shadow of a doubt.
Comer’s comments come weeks after Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed U.S. Attorney David Weiss as special counsel in the ongoing DOJ investigation into Hunter Biden, sparking backlash from Republicans including Comer, who called the appointment a “joke.”
