SHOT/CHASER: Comer’s Attacks on President Biden’s Family Are Outrageously Hypocritical

Mar 16, 2023

SHOT: Comer Released a New Report Attacking the Widow of President Biden’s Deceased Son. “House Republicans announced Thursday that President Joe Biden’s relatives received a combined $1.3 million from a business associate with links to China, the latest salvo in an investigation the Biden administration has dismissed as politically motivated. Hunter Biden, the president’s son; James Biden, the president’s brother; Hallie Biden, the president’s daughter-in-law; and a fourth unnamed Biden received the payments from business associate Rob Walker, according to the House Oversight and Accountability Committee. The money was paid out after Walker received a $3 million wire transfer from a Chinese company, according to the panel.” [USA Today, 3/16/23]

CHASER: Comer’s Family Benefited Financially From Legislation He Co-Sponsored. “New House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has vowed to use his position to investigate ‘waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement’ in federal COVID loans. But if that’s the case, he might actually find himself looking into his own role in that program—as well as his brother’s. In 2020, Comer, a critic of government spending, co-sponsored legislation that would essentially automatically forgive COVID Paycheck Protection Program loans of $150,000 or less. After the bill passed, Comer’s brother, Chad, received about $12,000 in PPP loans at the address of a farm he appears to have co-owned with the congressman, listing one employee, according to federal data. Rep. Comer was formerly on the board of the bank that secured his brother’s loan, which has been forgiven in full, plus interest, according to ProPublica data.” [Daily Beast, 1/31/23]
