WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) issued the following statement on allegations that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is retaliating against the whistleblower who alleges the Department of Justice may be blocking efforts to charge Hunter Biden for federal violations:

“On the same day that the Durham Report exposed how the federal government weaponized its power to advance the Russia collusion hoax, we now have learned that the federal government once again may be abusing its power to retaliate against a whistleblower who alleges the Biden Administration is obstructing justice by blocking efforts to charge Hunter Biden for federal violations. Congress must thoroughly investigate this alleged retaliation and hold accountable those in the Biden Administration who are covering up any crimes committed by the president’s son.

“It’s clear from the House Oversight Committee’s investigation that Hunter and other members of the Biden family engaged in deceptive, shady business schemes to avoid scrutiny as they made millions from countries like China and Romania. The Oversight Committee will continue to pursue our investigation into the Biden family’s business schemes to determine if President Biden and our national security are compromised. Americans demand answers, transparency, and accountability.”

So just more unfounded accusations with no evidence? Just like the Durham Report. Hot air with nothing to back it up but rumors and innuendo and zero facts. This ridiculous game is getting old.

Always assumed socialist politicians were the primary culprits destroying America.
Since 2020 its crystal clear that incogitant masses of mainstream media watching left-wing idealists, believing mommy and daddy's democratic party actually exists today, are the flies in the ointment.
If you still hate Trump and/or patriotism after the treasonist freak show we're now suffering, your dedication to weak-mindedness is staggering.
