Treasury Department Will Give Hunter Biden Documents to House Republicans

Congressman James Comer (R-KY) sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen that accused the Treasury Department of running interference for the White House to help prevent an attempt to investigate Hunter Biden’s finances.

Comer, the House Committee on Reform and Oversight ranking member is named. A phone conversation that took place in June was mentioned by Comer.

“Treasury officials informed Committee Republican staff that they will not provide SARs to Committee Republicans unless Democrats join the request.”

Rep. Comer wrote Yellen this letter:

“Treasury is refusing to release suspicious activity reports connected with Hunter Biden or his family and associates—including the President,”

There have been many videos and stories about Hunter Biden recently.

Hunter Biden will be investigated if there’s a red wave and Republicans win the House. CBS’s Comer says:

“The banks have also indicated that they cannot provide information without a subpoena, and we know Democrats aren’t interested in conducting oversight of this potential national security threat. When Republicans take back the House, we’ll use the gavel to get answers.”

It is evident that the committee Republicans desire to understand why this has happened.

“Committee Republicans are investigating whether this change in longstanding policy is motivated by efforts to shield Hunter Biden and potentially President Biden from scrutiny.”

CBS was emailed by a Treasury Department official:

“Treasury provides SARs to Congress in a manner that enables robust oversight and that is consistent with how other sensitive law enforcement information is often produced … It is not a political process. Since the beginning of this Administration, Treasury has made SARs available in response to authorized committee requests and continues to engage on the process with any individual members seeking information,”

CBS News asked a series of questions that the Treasury Department didn’t answer. The questions were about Comer’s claim that Democrats need to join the investigation request before it releases Hunter Biden-related records.

Ron Klain, White House chief-of-staff, stated this in April about Hunter Biden and James Biden.

“These are actions by Hunter and his brother, they’re private matters. They don’t involve the president and they certainly are something that no one at the White House is involved in.”

Klain agreed to a tweet. claimed that inflation was a “high-class problem,” so take what he says with a grain of salt.

The Treasury will not hand the documents if Democrats don’t join the request. Hunter Biden is likely to be investigated in the event that the GOP wins the House during the midterm elections.
