Washington, D.C. – Following yet another failed hearing where Republicans produced no evidence of wrongdoing by President Biden, the Congressional Integrity Project sent a letter to Rep. James Comer calling on him to investigate corruption and influence peddling by the Trump family during their time in the White House. In light of Chairman Comer’s comments yesterday about his desire to investigate influence peddling, CIP is urging him to take a look at the extensive list of corrupt business deals by the Trump family. 

Congressional Integrity Project executive director, Kyle Herrig, issued the following statement:

“James Comer and his fellow MAGA House Republicans have spent over a year investigating President Biden and have not turned up a single shred of evidence of wrongdoing. It’s time for Comer to finally end this baseless political stunt, move on to real conflicts of interest, and investigate the Trump family as he has said he would. The Trump family’s business dealings with countries like China and Saudi Arabia during and since leaving the White House pose unprecedented conflicts of interest and are a threat to our national security.”
