James Comer: Joe Biden Potentially Kept Sensitive Docs About Family Business Involvement with Foreign Countries

The story reports this decidedly new news:

“President Joe Biden potentially retained sensitive documents about the Biden family business’s involvement with foreign countries, House Oversight Committee chair James Comer (R-KY) suggested Monday in a letter to special counsel Robert Hur.

Hur, appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland, is investigating Biden for the mishandling of classified material; this relates to his possession of documents from when he was vice president. As part of his probe, he reportedly interviewed the president last week for two hours. Comer apparently suspects Hur could possess information that links Biden’s document scandal to his family’s foreign dealings.

‘[T]he Biden family received millions of dollars from foreign sources while President Biden served in public office and afterwards,’ Comer prefaced, adding:

‘If any of the classified documents mishandled by President Biden involved countries or individuals that had financial dealings with Biden family members or their related companies, the Committee needs access to that information to evaluate whether our national security has been compromised.’

In other words this instantly separates the two very different cases of the Trump documents versus the Biden documents.

In the case of Trump, the accusation boils down to what government bureaucrats see as simple carelessness – documents being in one place when they should be in another.

In the Biden case this new information is essentially charging that Biden kept the documents so their contents could be used to benefit the Biden family influence-peddling business.

A new leaf turns.

Stay tuned.
