James Comer (R-KY), the chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, stated on Thursday that he plans to submit up to 10 criminal referrals against Hunter Biden, including accusations relating to prostitution and his international business dealings.
In an interview with Fox Business, Comer stated that his committee might recommend Hunter for criminal prosecution for “six to ten” offenses, including transgressions of the Mann Act and the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
“He violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act. He was money laundering. He was racketeering. He committed wire fraud. He violated the Mann Act. The list goes on and on and on,” Comer said during the interview. “But yet he gets a slap on the wrist and the Democrats want to talk about, ‘Oh, the two-tier system of justice is racist in America.’ Well, Hunter Biden is the ultimate white privilege guy here.”
The Mann Act prohibits the interstate transportation of women or girls for prostitution.
“The Democrats kept saying, ‘Oh, we don’t have any evidence. You don’t have any evidence.’ Well, [Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene] showed them evidence,” Comer said. “She showed them evidence of the president’s son committing a crime, violating the Mann Act. She showed the plane tickets, she showed the pictures, she showed the evidence. You know, there’s no question he violated it. That’s another thing that he could have been charged with.”
Comer also addressed the disclosure by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) of a document from an FBI confidential human source (CHS) alleging that they were informed by Mykola Zlochevsky, the CEO of Burisma, that he was required to pay the Biden family a $10 million bribe in return for pressuring the Ukrainian government to dismiss prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was looking into Burisma, in exchange for firing him.
“The evidence here is pretty overwhelming that Joe Biden did something for the CEO of Burisma. And what the form also says is that investigators would have a hard time – it would take them 10 years to determine how they got the money because of the way they transferred the money through so many different bank accounts,” he said.
Comer has been in charge of looking into the Biden family’s alleged foreign influence-peddling and commercial connections. The Kentucky Republican said that House investigators had gotten financial records that purportedly show transfers from Russia to the Biden family in another interview this week.
