STARNES: [01:36:55] I want to go to the Patriot Mobile Newsmaker Line, very honored to have with us from the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Congressman James Comer. Congressman, good to have you with us today. [01:37:03][8.1]

Do you think the Biden administration is corrupt?

COMER: [01:37:04] Thanks for having me on. [01:37:05][0.7]

STARNES: [01:37:06] Alright, so you heard the voicemail message. You heard the response from the White House. And you’ve got a lot of grave concerns. [01:37:12][6.3]

COMER: [01:37:15] Absolutely. This is a pattern that we’re seeing develop here. This is another instance of where Joe Biden was caught not telling the truth. He knew very well what his son Hunter was doing. He knew very well who is associates were and what countries they were peddling influence in. And he’s not been truthful with the American public. We know also that Hunter Biden is a shady business character. But here’s the problem, and this is why we’re trying to conduct so much oversight. We believe that Hunter Biden is a national security threat, and we believe that Joe Biden has been compromised because of the fact that Hunter Biden has had too many shady business dealings with too many of our adversaries in Russia and China. [01:38:02][47.3]

STARNES: [01:38:03] When you say compromised, in what way do you believe the president has been compromised? [01:38:08][4.8]

COMER: [01:38:10] Well, that’s what we’re going to find out. But I’ll give you an example. Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s brother, Jim, they had various bank accounts that have had over 150 major bank violations, which are called SARs suspicious activity reports filed against them. A SARs was put into place when George W. Bush was president to try to catch foreign money transfers into terrorist cells in the United States. If you remember, Saudi Arabia wired money to the people that flew the planes into the buildings on September 11th. That’s how a SAR was born. Every administration, the Bush administration, the Clinton administration, the Obama administration, if you had an issue, and wanted to know about suspicious activity reports in your district or in your state, any member of Congress, not just on the Oversight Committee, but any member of Congress could call the Treasury Department and get that information. When Joe Biden became president in the dark of night, without consulting with anyone and for no reason, he changed that rule to where Congress could not access those suspicious activity reports. Well, now, we found out that, you know, Hunter’s had all these bank violations. I requested the suspicious activity report from the Treasury Department and they say you can’t have them now. That’s one example. Then another example and I’ll cut it off here, but the sanctions that Joe Biden put on these Russian oligarchs, he left two names off the sanctions list. They just happened to be the two Russian billionaire oligarchs who paid money to Hunter Biden for “consulting.” So that’s two entities, I think that anyone would agree that Joe Biden made bad decisions to try to protect Hunter.

Trump Mourns Death of ‘True Friend’ Prime Minister Abe

STARNES: [01:39:59] Incredibly shady, and I smell a rat. I know a lot of other Republicans up on Capitol Hill are smelling rats. You are the top Republican on the House Oversight Committee, which is why you’re on top of all of this stuff. And I know you’ve sent this letter to the Treasury secretary, Janet Yellen. What information are you hoping to get from her that you have not gotten yet? [01:40:22][22.1]

COMER: [01:40:23] The information that every member of Congress over the last three presidential administrations could get when they requested it. Suspicious activity reports from their district, from their state or from any particular person. Well, the particular person I have requested is Hunter Biden. And they will not give us that information because they said that they changed the policy. Well, why did they change the policy? They changed the policy to protect Hunter Biden. And, you know, this isn’t something that’s complicated. This isn’t something that’s political. These suspicious activity reports were always meant to be transparent with members of Congress, to be able to work together as a team, to try to root out corruption, money laundering, suspicious cash transfers, excessive cash transfers. That’s what a suspicious activity report is. And to have over 150 I mean, I’m not ashamed to make this prediction that, you know, that Hunter Biden had more suspicious activity reports filed against him than anyone in the history of America. Because I’ve been a bank director, I’m very familiar with the banking. You know, I don’t know anyone that’s ever had more than one. To have 150 from different banks, he had some bad stuff going on. That’s why he’s under investigation by the IRS and the U.S. attorney’s office of Delaware. And I will tell you, the fact that Joe Biden and this White House will not talk about Hunter Biden and that they continue to do things to try to protect Hunter Biden, that leaves America in a compromised state. And that’s why Republicans on the House Oversight Committee aren’t going to let up. [01:42:09][106.2]

STARNES: [01:42:10] Do you find it unusual or concerning that the Biden administration is literally sending oil from our strategic reserves to, of all places, China? [01:42:22][12.4]

COMER: [01:42:24] Yeah, that’s one example. Another example, you know, he’s talking about doing away with the tariffs, which I’ve never been a fan of tariffs. But well, let’s have some let’s have some debate on this. What’s the long term plan? Then the ultimate problem I have with some of his decisions with respect to China is why doesn’t he want to try to determine the origination of COVID? Why is he always defended China and said, you know, repeated what Dr. Fauci said, oh, this is in no way, shape or form from the Wuhan lab. This is in no way, shape or form manmade. When we on the Oversight Committee unearthed the emails that showed that in the very beginning, all of Fauci’s advisors said this is obviously from the Wuhan lab because they knew what was going on in there. They were doing COVID research and this is obviously manmade, that they lied about American taxpayer dollars going to the Wuhan lab, which we figured out that they did through EcoHealth Alliance for gain of function research, which is illegal. So there’s always been an attempt to cover up and to protect China from the Biden administration on the origination of COVID. Look, Republicans on the House Oversight Committee, we’re not saying the Democrats created COVID, we’re saying China created COVID. Why won’t this administration work with us to try to determine the origination and then hold China accountable, it is like every time the administration, the Biden administration has an opportunity to pick a side, they always end up on the side of China against what’s best for America. [01:43:55][91.3]

‘REPEAT THE LINE’: Biden Reads Teleprompter Instructions

STARNES: [01:43:56] Now, Congressman, clearly there’s not much you guys can do right now being in the minority on Capitol Hill. But should the Republicans retake the House of Representatives? What can we expect from the House Oversight Committee? [01:44:10][13.9]

COMER: [01:44:11] Well, you can expect Hunter Biden will get an invitation to come to the House Oversight Committee if he declines, he will be subpoenaed. If he refuses to show up, we will have in, you know, at the beginning of the new Congress, a Hunter Biden hearing. We’ll have his business associates there. We’ll have these bank CEOs there. We’ll find out exactly how many suspicious activity reports were filed. We’ll have an exact definitive answer as to why they were filed. And we’re going to try to take steps to determine, is Joe Biden the big guy? Was he getting a cut from all of these shady business dealings? And if so, that’s a serious problem. And the American people, you know, have been put at risk because of these shady business dealings from the Biden family. [01:45:02][50.5]

STARNES: [01:45:03] Alright, this is fascinating. And we’re going to stay on top of this. And I know that you are as well. Congressman, let’s hope and pray that the Republicans do retake Congress so we can get to the bottom of all of this. [01:45:15][12.2]

COMER: [01:45:16] Well, it’s going to be a priority for me if I’m chairman of the House Oversight Committee. I think the American people deserve answers. The Democrats never skipped any efforts to try to investigate the Trump family. They never found anything. I think we’ve already found more wrongdoing from the Biden family than they ever dreamed of making up on the Trump family. [01:45:40][23.9]

STARNES: [01:45:41] Alright, Congressman James Comer from Kentucky, ladies and gentleman. Congressman, thank you. [01:45:46][4.6]

COMER: [01:45:47] Thank you for having me. [01:45:48][0.8]
