During a Friday interview, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Kentucky) made a claim implicating former President Barack Obama in allegations involving the family of his then-Vice President Joe Biden.
In an interview with Lou Dobbs’s Great America Show, Comer implied that Obama was aware of the Biden family’s questionable international business transactions, which have been the subject of a federal investigation for years.
Comer stated, “I believe, Lou, that it is because he knew what Joe Biden was doing in his final year as vice president.”
“He knew his son (Hunter Biden) was no good, and he knew this was nothing but a political liability not just for our country, not just for the democrat party, but for Obama’s legacy,” the Kentucky Republican adde
Comer also suggested that Obama’s knowledge of the family’s business transactions may have influenced his reluctance to endorse Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign.
“So, I think that’s why Obama didn’t want Joe Biden to run for president. I think they knew about this,” Comer said, referencing the Biden family’s dealings. “And remember, a lot of these coverups would have happened during the Obama administration with Obama appointees in these deep state bureaucracies.”

In addition, he proposed that Obama be questioned under oath about what he may have known at the time.
“This would be a great question for Obama: Were you aware of what was going on with Joe Biden with respect to foreign policy and some of these ragtag countries around the world?” Comer told Dobbs.
Comer stated last week that he has received credible allegations that Hunter Biden’s legal team is intimidating and menacing potential witnesses.
“We’ve got witnesses that are scared to death to come forward. They fear for their lives,” he told the Just the News podcast this week.
Comer stated that witnesses from his district were under pressure, and that institutions that complied with subpoenas issued by his Oversight and Accountability Committee are under pressure from high-ranking Democratic Party officials.
Comer stated on the program that he was extremely concerned about legal letters and implied threats sent to witnesses by Hunter Biden supporters. According to reports, cooperating banks have received threats, and political attack campaigns have been funded in the districts of some legislators investigating allegations of Biden family influence peddling.
“The Hunter Biden legal team — they’re testing the limits,” Comer said. “I’ll put it like that with respect to witness intimidation. I mean, just look in my district. We’ve got dark money groups that are being funded through prominent high-ranking Democrat officials in Congress. Also, the communications director for the White House continues to retweet things trying to intimidate me for having the audacity to investigate.

“We’ve got witnesses that are scared to death to come forward. They fear for their lives. I mean, you’ve got the banks that have worked with us, they’re being squeezed by attorneys, by high-ranking officials in the Democrat Party for having the nerve to work with us to comply with our subpoenas,” he added.
