House Oversight Chairman James Comer Accuses Hunter Biden’s Lawyers of Intimidating Witnesses – James Comer, who is the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, alleged that attorneys representing Hunter Biden were using tactics to intimidate individuals who could be witnesses or whistleblowers and were assisting the committee’s investigation into Hunter Biden’s foreign business activities.
“In communication with our witnesses and with people who are cooperating from a subpoena standpoint, we know that they have been contacted by the attorneys for Hunter Biden,” Comer said during an interview on Fox News. “We feel that this is really close to crossing the line. Obviously, their objective in my opinion, is witness intimidation. This will not stand.” During an interview with Fox News host Sandra Smith, she questioned the Kentucky Republican on whether he had concrete evidence to substantiate the allegations.
In response, Comer suggested that he was confident that he possessed such evidence. “If you get a call from the lawyers and they remind you of your potential liability in some of these business schemes then yes, I would consider that witness intimidation,” Comer said, adding that the committee plans on requesting immunity for certain individuals cooperating with the probe. “That is a big deal and hopefully, the Justice Department and Merrick Garland will grant immunity to those people,” he said.
“The message is sent very loud and clear that this legal team needs to be very careful moving forward.” Furthermore, Comer made an accusation that Democrats were financing “dark money groups” in an attempt to intimidate him and Jim Jordan, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, to halt their investigations into the Biden family. “They have dark money groups that are trying to intimidate both me and Chairman Jim Jordan, this isn’t helping their cause,” he said, without providing evidence.
“They’re not intimidating us. We’re going to press forward and present the facts to the American people.” Comer promised that later this month his committee would reveal “the facts of what we’ve uncovered thus far” in the Hunter Biden probe. “In the coming days and weeks, a lot of information is going to come forward that’s going to tell a very compelling story to the American people about the extent of this family’s influence peddling,” Comer said.
