In a recent interview, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer blasted the American corporate news media for attacking the committee’s investigation into the Biden family’s foreign business deals despite the overwhelming evidence uncovered, Newsmax reported.
While appearing on Newsmax’s “Eric Bolling: The Balance” on Monday, Comer also had harsh words for the ranking Democrat on the Oversight Committee, Jamie Rankin for condemning the Biden family probe.
Comer told host Eric Bolling that for all Rankin’s talk about integrity, it was he who spent two years peddling the “completely made-up” and “bogus” Steele dossier.
Comer defended the “hard evidence” the Oversight Committee has presented in its investigation, which includes bank records of payments received by the Bidens from foreign entities.
In a recent interview on MSNBC, Rep. Rankin tried to sully the Republican-led probe by linking it to indicted potential witness, Gal Luft.
Luft, who was to provide information to the Oversight Committee about payments the Biden family received from individuals with links to Chinese military intelligence, was charged by the Justice Department for acting as an unregistered foreign agent, arms trafficking, violating US sanctions against Iran, and making false statements to the FBI.
Comer told Bolling that Luft took money from the same company that paid Hunter Biden millions. Not only that, Comer added, it was the same company about which Hunter said he wanted his father to have keys so they could share an office space.
In a video statement obtained by the New York Post, Luft claims that the Justice Department is trying to arrest him to keep him from testifying to the Oversight Committee.
Luft said that in 2019, he met with two DOJ prosecutors and four FBI agents and gave them evidence implicating Joe Biden in the Biden family’s dealings with the former Chinese energy company CEFC.
According to Luft, he never heard from the DOJ again until he was arrested in Cyprus in February.
Luft, who escaped arrest and has been a fugitive ever since, said in the video that he feared that if he was arrested and extradited to the US, he would not receive a fair trial. Luft describes the charges as malicious and untrue.
