House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has issued a warning to the Biden family after speaking with two Republican county attorneys.
Comer revealed that the two prosecutors were asking him for “ways they can go after the Bidens” following President Donald Trump’s arrest in New York City on Tuesday.
He said: “We’re going to be having a call with McCarthy later this week, Jim Jordan and myself. And we’re going to try to figure out a path moving forward. This is very serious. Alvin Bragg doesn’t even know where his funding comes from, but he gets federal funding and that’s where it falls into the jurisdiction of the House Oversight Committee.
“The weaponization of his office is how it falls into both the Judiciary Committee and the Select Committee on the Weaponization of the Department of Justice. So we’re, we’re not going to stop on this.
“Nothing changed. We believe that he’s overstepped.
“The fact that I’m sitting here watching what happened to Donald Trump yesterday, knowing what all the Bidens have been engaged in and the shenanigans and the bank violations that we’re privy to right now at the Treasury Cabinet.
“Where the banks pointed out all of the potential money laundering and they, the banks couldn’t explain all the different transfers and all the different LLCs…
“It’s just breathtaking.
“So I hope the media is serious about the evidence that will be we’ll continue to be bringing forward about the Biden family, as they have been about this ridiculous political stunt that happened in New York yesterday with Donald Trump.
“And I’ll tell you, one of the things that I don’t think it’s been picked up a lot that’s going to be a problem.
“And I had two calls yesterday, one from a county attorney in Kentucky and one from a county attorney in Tennessee.
“They were Republican, obviously, both states are heavily Republican.
“They want to know if there are ways they can go after the Bidens now.
“And they’ve opened a can of worms.
“They’ve set precedents now that we can’t go back on.
“And now we’re going to see a judicial system that’s already bogged down with doing what they’re supposed to do, and that’s going after real criminals, people that are committing real crimes, burglaries, rape, robberies, things like that.
“And now you’re going to start having ambitious political people like Alvin Bragg try to make a name for themselves and go after big pie-in-the-sky federal cases.
“And it’s just not a good path that we need to go forward on in our judiciary,” he said.

I now have access to the Biden family’s suspicious activity reports from @USTreasury.
I have also subpoenaed Biden family band records.
And Biden family associates connected to the schemes are talking to @GOPoversight.
It doesn’t look good for @POTUS. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/YzcnP64AUd
