“House Republicans allege Biden directly involved in business dealings with son Hunter Biden”

Comer and Jordan

“Republican Reps. James Comer and Jim Jordan alleged at a press conference Thursday that President Biden was actively involved in overseas business dealings alongside his son Hunter.

Comer, citing whistleblowers, asserted that the Biden family “flourished and became millionaires by simply offering access to the family.”

“Was Joe Biden directly involved with Hunter Biden’s business deals, and is he compromised? That’s our investigation,” Comer said.”

“Comer is the incoming chair of the House Oversight Committee and Jordan is expected to soon chair the Judiciary Committee.

The representatives alleged that Hunter Biden and Joe Biden participated in “waste, fraud, and abuse” in international business dealings. 

The Republicans released a report Thursday outlining their findings.”

Comment: The report is enclosed.

I watched this presser in its entirety. These men and their colleagues are IMO determined to press home what they describe as “an investigation of Joe Biden, not Hunter.” Other Republicans want to hold back but not these. IMO, they don’t think they can drive Biden from office, but they do think that they can ruin his legacy. I agree. pl

    On the road to B-E-N-G-H-A-Z-I, again! lol

    This “Biden family biz” is already well trodden ground with the 2020 “investigation” conducted by Senate REPUBS.

    Now got load mouth Jordan ( who reminds me of Mose Allison singing, “his mind is on vacation and his mouth working overtime”) and super Q conspiracy grabber Comer going after the Bidens….now that’s a pair!

    The House Republicans will have a hard time showing that they can govern as it is and these antics will not help that effort. If there is any there there, it would probably already be known.

    I don’t think McCarthy will do much better than his two Republican predecessors. Too many nihilists in that crowd.

      There’s not a whole of “governing” they can do with only one chamber of Congress under their control. What else do you suggest they do with their time? When all they have is just one of the main three levers of power in the federal gov., why not use that position of limited advantage to do as much damage to your enemy as you can in the near term, and hope it contributes into a larger strategy down the road in 2024?

        Their problem will arrive in two years and if they have not made any real efforts to enact legislation with Democrat support, they will be seen as only interested in political theater and that can be rather detrimental. I think the midterms showed that extremism is not all that popular with the public and I don’t expect that to reverse anytime soon. You can mouth off a lot in opposition, but when you take the reins, it is a different situation. I realize that it will be hard to enact anything with just Republican support, since it will not pass in the Senate, or Biden will veto it. But I hope that some in the leadership realizes that they get one shot at growing their support and without the large mass in the middle, you only have a minority to look forward to. But we will see.

      Socialists control the exec and the Senate. So now you want rep. governance. Which republicans control the House? The pre ’48 Conservative/Libertarians, or the post ’48 Prof. pols? They are not the same. But you knew that, or not?

    The “thick report” of 1,050 pp that Jordan and Comer point to as basis for their investigations contains 1,000 pp of Republican Congressional correspondence to Obama/Biden admins over past 4 yrs.

    Here will be a lot of raw, red meat thrown out to appease the Foxes tuning into HAMity and Tucker. Not cooked at all, tho!

      “correspondence to Obama/Biden admins over past 4 yrs.”

      Obama’s people probably are running the show, but he’s been out of office for a long time now. Thanks though for pointing out the long, long, paper trail proving the nefarious conduct of Obama/Biden and Biden/Harris administrations.

      • Al says:

        Fred, Maybe Jordan/Comer can pull Durham away from DOJ to provide them his investigatory expertise! lol

        • Fred says:


          You mean Weisman and the dozen of lawyers who all erased their phones in exactly the same way won’t be available for another round of doing nothing?

    If the incoming Republican Majority House can investigate the Bidens and Fauci both, that is fine.

    If they can only do one or the other with excruciating patience and thoroughness, I would prefer to see them do Fauci.

    • Fourth and Long says:

      I second third fourth and fifth that motion.

      Biden is the real Slim Shady now and is for all realistic purposes the mortal equivalent of superman once all the kryptonite salesman on earth are exposed as comic book salesmen.

      Fauci is probably even more dangerous though. He dials a secret code and the Senate and congressional representative’s doctor’s office receptionists unexpectedly find alarming blood test results of certain eminences and feel compelled to make phone calls. The investigations stop. Only kidding a wee bit. The issue you point to is of monumental importance. So they will do nothing.

      • Al says:

        F&L, I can see your tin foil hat sparking from afar! Turn down the voltage.

        • Fourth and Long says:

          Thanks. I don’t get sufficient sleep lately. Covid was debilitating and my reaction to the vaccine was very unpleasant. You’re probably right.

      • Bill Roche says:

        The Congressional GOPe are prof. pols. It doesn’t help them get reelected to actually do something, so they will do nothing. But it does help them to appear to do something. Can I be any clearer? Amazing to me but people still don’t get it. I’ll try again. There are two Republican Parties. The Old GOP and the GOPe. Expect nothing from the latter. They have given America nothing since ’48. That’s their “stick.” They blocked Goldwater in ’64, blocked Reagan in ’76, blocked the Tea Party in ’10, and participated in the assault on Trump in ’16-’20. They attack Trump now. They are not conservative/libertarian. That is a facade. They are nothing. They don’t care about any political idea… they don’t care. Trump a Populist/Conservative/Libertarian (whew) exposes the true nature of the “empty men” of the GOPe. The original GOP is still there and must be killed dead. Its ok, most still don’t understand this Elephant in the room of American politics.

    Tucker Carlson had a good opening 5 minutes discussing how there are Government officials responsible for seeing to it that events such as disappearing $32 billion via FTX style crypto swindling are better left remaining in the stories of Count Cagliostro’s enterprises among the high European aristocracies of the days of Marie Antoinette. He mentioned someone named Gary. Was Sam Bankman-Fried named after Uncle Sam?

    For those whose confidence in oversight of possible calamities of a more expensive one than FTX, see the report released today on the safety or not of closed pit plutonium weapons and related issues. Good timing, Lone Ranger.

    The worst thing that could have happened to the Dems was to take the House in 2022. Bill Clinton suffered huge mid term House losses. Obama suffered even bigger House losses. The conventional wisdom is that Republican over reach and ineptitude after these House gains helped re elect both men. Biden and the Democrats will be able to use Republican over reach and ineptitude once again in 2024.

    • Bill Roche says:

      Please cite examples of Republicans being inept and state whether you refer to pre or post ’48 Republicans.

        Repubs chasing nothingburgers!
        House Repubs Benghazi invest and Barr’s Spec Counsel Durham to name a couple!
