Republicans on the House Oversight and Reform Committee say they have evidence that Hunter Biden was working on a deal with CCP-controlled energy company CEFC to sell American natural gas to China. Ranking member James Comer of Kentucky says he has obtained a PowerPoint presentation from 2017 outlining the proposal, and a whistleblower has come forward to say that, YES, then-Vice President Joe Biden was involved in that deal.

In a committee meeting Tuesday morning, Rep. Comer presented a resolution to require President Biden to hand over about 150 documents currently held by the Treasury Department after being flagged by them for suspicious activity. To no one’s surprise, the Treasury Department has previously refused to cooperate on this with the Republicans on the committee. But this lack of cooperation is apparently something new, as normally the policy would be to release suspicious activity reports to Congress, under the Bank Secrecy Act. In other words, Hunter does appear to be getting special treatment.

The Treasury Department has finally offered its reason, but Comer says they’re stonewalling. On May 25, Comer wrote to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen asking for the records, but got nowhere. His request of July 6 was also ignored. Finally, on September 2, he heard back. His request had been stamped “DENIED” by the assistant treasury secretary for legislative affairs, who explained that the information was what they call “tip and lead,” just to help investigators, and must be kept within the executive branch. (So much for oversight.) “Unauthorized use or disclosure of confidential information,” he said, “whether intentional or inadvertent, can also undermine potential or ongoing investigations or proceedings.”

As you know, Hunter is supposedly being investigated by the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware over his finances, though it's hard to tell how serious that investigation is. Last we heard, a couple of weeks ago, former business partner Tony Bobulinski still hadn’t been subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury, and it’s been TWO YEARS since he went public with his information about “the Big Guy,” who according to an email on Hunter's laptop was to pocket 10 percent of the profits from the CEFC deal.

Of course, Democrats, who make up the majority on this and all committees, were not expected to go along with Comer’s resolution, and indeed they killed it, but at least all of them will be on record regarding this look into the Bidens’ business ties. Do we want transparency, or do we want it all hidden away? It’s obvious who wants what.

As reported by THE DAILY SIGNAL before the vote was taken, “Comer’s resolution is meant to ensure that Congress receives information needed to conduct oversight of the Biden family’s international business deals when Joe Biden was in federal office, including his eight years as Vice President and 36 years [!] in the Senate.” Recall that Biden’s papers from his years in the Senate are held at the University of Delaware, apparently in a vault hundreds of feet below the surface of the Earth, where they are still safe from scrutiny.

Rep. Comer appeared on Sean Hannity’s TV show Tuesday night to discuss the resolution. We all know, of course, that the FBI tried to deep-six Hunter’s laptop before the 2020 election and enlisted their media minions to dismiss it as Russian disinformation, but that it’s actually the real deal and implicates our current President multiple times in sketchy foreign business deals. Though President Biden has repeatedly lied and said he never even spoke to Hunter about his business, the laptop contains evidence that he met numerous times with his son’s associates.

Comer told Hannity there is proof, by way of emails and also whistleblower confirmation of the validity of bank transactions, that Hunter’s company Hudson West was negotiating a deal with Chinese energy CEFC to allow them to purchase American natural gas.

“There was a map in their PowerPoint, that was written in Chinese,” he said, “that highlighted all the natural gas providers across the United States. And what Hunter Biden was trying to do was negotiate the sale of liquified natural gas to China.” Beyond that, he explained, CEFC’s “main objective” was to start purchasing interest in the drillers as well, to be able to have more control over American natural gas prices.

Rep. Comer also has email confirmation that Biden told CEFC his father would be a “major investor” in the company and that part of the deal involved getting both Joe and Jill Biden keys to their new office digs. Take a look...

In fact, by going to the following page of the website for the House Oversight Committee Republicans and scrolling down the column on the right, you can see the various pieces of information they’ve gleaned about the Biden Family’s dealings with the CCP---I mean, CEFC.

More specifically, here’s their page detailing the areas they’re investigating and their findings so far.

Rep. Comer told Hannity that the investigation of Hunter Biden has now shifted to his father. It’s confirmed that after Hunter told CEFC of his father’s involvement in his company, CEFC transferred $5 million to them. Hunter also gave them his father’s personal cellphone number.

Reading about the work done by the GOP members of the Oversight Committee should impress on everyone how important it is to get these folks in the majority. Right now, no matter what they manage to find out –- with no subpoena power –- they’re essentially powerless to do anything about it. (What are they supposed to do with these findings, take them to the media?) That has got to change, and soon.

    Now the question is? Will they be prosecuted for their crimes???????
    Everyone knows and has known they are guilty of many things but nothing is done to punish them!! You know like the J6 violators!

    Have you noticed that so many times when you refer us to another page to get more info, especially if it is something the Democraps don't want us to see, it tells us ,"The page cannot be found." There have been a lot of those lately!

    Those who are seeking truth about ALL of the corruption in the oval office, the DOJ, the FBI, and both houses of Congress had better get taped depositions of all whistleblowers and witnesses before they end up dead or missing. I do not trust anyone who is running this once great country into the ground!

    Why is the DNI not involved? Why aren’t the Republicans and GOP demanding an investigation? The DOJ and FBI must be reorganized or done away with. Corruption at the top stinks like crazy!

    Gov. Huckabee,
    With all the craziness at the southern boarder, I have heard some commentators say this administration is breaking the law allowing the illegals to cross into the US as they are. Well, I would like to know what the laws, federal, state or local, that are on the books say pertaining to illegal immigrants. I am so tired of this crap I just want to scream. John Byrum

    I think it is hilariously sad that the link on the Democratic vote to cover up the CEFC deal (https://republicans-oversight. house.gov/release/comer-we- must-deliver-transparency- about-biden-familys-shady- business-deals/) results in "Page not found - ..." The 401 error, stating that "Content not found
    The content you were looking for could not be found."

    The whole entire government is corrupt, for them to pull all the crap against President Trump but not obama, killer Hillary and let's not 4 get pedo joe what are they hiding. Bush an obama changed the law so they didn't have to go thru the process of declassification. If it was in their hands and they were not in the Oval office then things we declassified. That's why oscama got to take an keep over 3 MILLION pages of info... We don't no the amount of info that killer hillary, pedo joe or Bush took. The law was NOT CHANGED, so the pedo joe admin, doj and FBI are breaking this law and no 1 damn thing is being done to stop blatant discrimination and hypocrisy. Everything that these people have done to president Trump has been done to no other president and to me that makes it discrimination big time.

    As always all the information and updates on all topics is good to know. But as with your information right along woth Epoch Times and Townhall, only a fraction of the population learns facts and truth. The country has way too many ignorant liberals who only listen to the phony mainstream media and that is exactly what that propaganda arm of the Democrats is counting on. It is disheartening to see our nation destroyed from within. But the Democrats are counting on the majority of spineless Republicans to say nothing and do nothing. I will still vote Republican but no longer have any confidence in them. The Republicans blew it in 2016 when they had the WH, Senate and House. They did support President Trump for wanting and acting on Making America Great Again and all his policies to accomplish the same. President Trump almost stood alone, yet really did Make America Great Again. Today's Republicans are very good at remaining silent, allowing China Joe to issue numerous Executive Orders without question, intentionally destroying our economy, our military and constitution. So I will vote Republican and truly hope for a red wave though I have little confidence in them ( Republicans) at least they are not insane and evil like China Joe and his corrupt cronies!
