Comer Warns Hunter’s Plea Deal Won’t Stop Biden Bribery Scheme Investigation

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has warned that the cushy plea deal given to the Democrat president’s son Hunter will not stop congressional investigations into the alleged bribery scheme involving Joe Biden and his family.

As Slay News reported earlier, Hunter Biden received a slap on the wrist from his father’s Department of Justice (DOJ) for admitting to multiple criminal charges.

The sweetheart deal means Hunter Biden will not serve any jail time.

Shortly after news of Hunter’s no-jail plea deal with the U.S. Attorney for Delaware broke on Tuesday, Comer made it clear his investigation of the Biden family will continue apace.

“Let’s be clear: the Department of Justice’s charges against President Biden’s son Hunter reveals a two-tiered system of justice,” Comer said.

“Hunter Biden is getting away with a slap on the wrist when growing evidence uncovered by the House Oversight Committee reveals the Bidens engaged in a pattern of corruption, influence peddling, and possibly bribery.

“These charges against Hunter Biden and sweetheart plea deal have no impact on the Oversight Committee’s investigation.

“We will not rest until the full extent of President Biden’s involvement in the family’s schemes are revealed.”

In a deal negotiated with Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, Hunter Biden will plead guilty to failing to pay roughly $1.2 million in taxes in 2017 and 2018, according to The Washington Post.

He also admits the facts of a gun charge.

“The defendant has agreed to enter a Pretrial Diversion Agreement with respect to the firearm Information,” federal prosecutors wrote, which would permit Biden to avoid pleading guilty on the record.

“I know Hunter believes it is important to take responsibility for these mistakes he made during a period of turmoil and addiction in his life,” one of Biden’s attorneys, Chris Clark, stated.

“He looks forward to continuing his recovery and moving forward.”

Clark stated that the investigation into Hunter Biden is “resolved.”

Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has responded to the news by saying the sweetheart deal will “enhance” the bribery case against the Bidens.


Over the weekend, Comer described the next steps he plans to take in the House Oversight Committee’s investigation.

That committee has uncovered numerous banking records allegedly showing the Biden family set up more than 20 shell companies to move millions of dollars from foreign sources.

Comer and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) have also pressed a reluctant FBI to admit that it has a form detailing a confidential informant’s highly detailed description of how as much as $10 million was paid to the Bidens by a Ukraine oligarch while Joe Biden was vice president.

“We’re going to start bringing in key figures in the Biden family influence-peddling schemes for depositions and I think we’re on the right track, even though we’re having to fight the FBI, fight the DOJ [Department of Justice], fight the Democrats in Congress and fight the mainstream media.”

“I think we’ve done as much as we could do with the obstacles we’ve had to overcome,” Comer, who has issued subpoenas for bank records, said.

“No one thought I would get bank records.

“No one thought we would get access to the Treasury, Cabinet’s suspicious activity reports, but we would not take ‘no’ for an answer. …

“We kept fighting and we prevailed.

“When we got access to the suspicious activity reports, the mainstream media said there was nothing there.”
