Kentucky Republican Rep. James Comer said Tuesday on Fox News that “a new name has emerged” in the Hunter Biden scandal.
Comer joined “America’s Newsroom” to discuss an ongoing House investigation into Hunter Biden after Comer issued a subpoena Sunday for bank records from alleged business associates of Hunter Biden. One alleged associate is John “Rob” Walker. Host Bill Hemmer noted the recent revelations surrounding Walker.
Comer explained a $3 million wire was discovered “two months after Joe Biden left office and then the very next day, from that account, that Walker account that appears to be a pastoral account, then they started wiring money to Biden family members, plural, and there were three different Biden family members that received a cut from the $3 million, including new Biden family members never before included in any of these investigations.”
Comer then questioned what these individuals did to warrant that money and what the purpose of the wire was, before saying this was an investigation about the president and not just his son.
“There are more family members involved than just the president’s son,” Comer added. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Oversight Republicans Renew Demand For Hunter Biden’s Art Sale Records)
“Another name popped up, whose name is that?” Hemmer asked. “Are they a relative tied to the family?”
“They are a Biden,” Comer said. “I’m not going to disclose that new name, that really changes things because what we assumed was this was just about the president’s son and two brothers, but now there is a new name that’s emerged. They are a Biden.”
“We have got a problem here with respect to trying to determine what exactly this family was doing to receive these transactions from China. I think every American should be concerned, this is an issue of national security.”
Comer then added it appears all the transfers, which came from alleged business associates with ties to China, were put into personal accounts. Further, Comer said the Biden family doesn’t manufacture or sell anything nor do they own real estate.
