( – Chairman James Comer of the House Oversight Committee expressed his opposition to the appointment of a special counsel to oversee the federal investigation into Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden. Comer voiced his concerns about Attorney General Merrick Garland, stating that most Americans should not trust him. He assured that his committee would persist in investigating the Biden family and their alleged involvement in business schemes.

Recently, the House Ways and Means Committee made public the testimony of two whistleblowers from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). These whistleblowers alleged that officials from the Justice Department, FBI, and IRS had interfered with the investigation into Hunter Biden. They further claimed that political influences had influenced the decision-making process of the investigators.

According to the whistleblowers, prosecutors from the Department of Justice instructed the investigators to avoid questioning witnesses about Joe Biden and also chose not to obtain search warrants related to the investigation of Hunter Biden.

These revelations surfaced shortly after the Department of Justice announced that Hunter Biden had reached a plea deal. Under the agreement, he would plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges for willful failure to pay federal income tax, potentially avoiding imprisonment. Additionally, he faces a third charge for possessing a firearm while being an unlawful user of or addicted to controlled substances. To address this charge, he has entered a pretrial diversion agreement that could result in the dismissal of the charges.

Comer, a Republican representative from Kentucky, has emphasized the importance of preventing the investigation from being handled by a special counsel appointed by the Biden administration. Instead, he argued that his committee should retain control over the investigation.
