James Comer says 'accountability' coming for Joe Biden, teases 'report'

 June 10, 2024

House Republicans' lead impeachment investigator James Comer (R-Ky.) told Fox News that a report on Joe Biden's "many crimes" is forthcoming.

"I think that it’s no secret that Joe Biden’s committed many crimes, and I think that you’re going to see a report very soon. That report is imminent,” Comer said.

Comer on Biden

Republicans have cited a large body of circumstantial evidence to place Biden at the center of an influence peddling and money laundering scheme involving his son Hunter and clients in countries like China and Ukraine.

Sunday Morning Futures host Maria Bartiromo pressed Comer on whether Republicans will formally recommend the prosecution of Joe Biden after similar steps were taken against his brother and son last week. Bartiromo listed crimes like money laundering and unregistered foreign lobbying and asked why Joe Biden has not been referred for prosecution.

"Where are the criminal referrals, if that's all true...for FARA, for money laundering, for corruption, for influence peddling?" Bartiromo asked.

Comer pledged that the criminal referrals for Biden's family members were just the "beginning" of a reckoning for the Biden family.

"We're just beginning, Maria," Comer said.  "Remember, this is an investigation of Joe Biden," he said.

"We're going to do everything we can to hold Hunter Biden and all the different shady associates accountable, this is just the beginning. But the next step will be accountability for Joe Biden."


While Hunter Biden is facing prosecution for tax and gun crimes, the Republican effort to impeach his father has stalled.

Comer, chairman of the House Oversight committee, emphasized that Joe Biden remains the focus of the GOP's impeachment investigation.

"Joe Biden was the central figure in the family's influence peddling scheme," Comer said.

"The tens of millions of dollars that the Bidens took in....all of this happened because Joe Biden was the central figure in selling 'the brand' and convincing the shady characters around the globe that his family was essentially speaking for him and go ahead and wire that money to those shell accounts."

As Bartiromo pressed, Comer declined to directly say what "accountability" for Joe Biden looks like.

“That’ll probably be an interim report that updates everyone on the crimes that that Biden and his administration have committed throughout this investigation and through the years of the Obama-Biden Administration," he said.
