On Wednesday morning, Rep. James Comer introduced that he had discovered proof that President Joe Biden had taken $40,000 in “laundered China cash.” He accompanied this newest addition to his arsenal of smoking weapons with charts and incendiary language about “blackmail” and “shady enterprise.”
What Comer didn’t discover was any proof of an precise crime by Biden or anybody else. As an alternative, as his personal diagrams present, these seem like regular enterprise transactions made amongst six completely different people and enterprise entities at a time when Biden and everybody else in his household didn’t maintain any public workplace.
As he has demonstrated on so many different events, Comer’s assertion reveals nothing besides that his investigation into Biden’s funds is each pointless and hole. It’s applicable that he’s releasing this newest “bombshell” on el Día de Muertos as a result of this entire story is so, so useless.
The newest smoking squirt gun entails a verify that got here to Biden on Sept. 3, 2017. At that time, Biden wasn’t in workplace, wasn’t operating for workplace, and nobody had any purpose to suppose he would ever once more be in workplace. That’s when the $40,000 verify got here to Joe Biden from his brother James.
That verify was labeled “mortgage compensation.” However in response to Comer, it doesn’t matter whether it is, as a result of “it nonetheless reveals how Joe benefited from his household cashing in on his identify—with cash from China no much less.”
To succeed in his conclusion about this cost from Biden’s brother, Comer backtracks by means of an organization partially owned by James and Sarah Biden, then to an organization partially owned by Hunter Biden, then to a different firm partially owned by Hunter Biden, then to a wire switch from a Chinese language firm on Aug. 8, 2017.
What Comer means by “laundered” is that folks obtained paid, gave different individuals the cash that they owned, and took care of their funds. It’s actually a recreation of six levels of separation. By this normal, any cost made to anybody beneath any circumstances could possibly be mentioned to be cash laundering.
Take, for instance, James Comer. Earlier than coming to Congress, Comer spent 12 years as a director at South Central Financial institution. That financial institution claims to have over 50,000 prospects and $1.6 billion in property. By the requirements now utilized by the Home Oversight Committee, each paycheck Comer obtained could possibly be thought of cash that was “laundered” for any certainly one of them. Or for the individuals who paid them. Or the individuals who paid them. Or the individuals who paid them. Or the individuals who paid them.
The reality is that the Home Oversight Committee has had all these information for the higher a part of a 12 months. Comer has been dropping his little so-whats since no less than March, largely at instances when Fox Information desperately wants one thing else to speak about. One thing aside from, say, Donald Trump’s kids lining as much as be witnesses in an enormous fraud case.
No Republican would dare recommend trying into the $2 billion given to Jared Kushner after he made a number of visits to Saudi dictator Mohammed bin Salman whereas serving within the White Home. However the usual Comer is making use of now means that nobody within the Biden household is allowed to work, make an funding, or settle for a dime for his or her companies. Even those that have by no means held workplace. Even in instances when Joe Biden doesn’t maintain workplace. It additionally demeans the work of everybody in Biden’s household to the standing of “cashing in on his identify.”
It’s secure to say that’s one thing Comer’s household gained’t be doing. Then once more, possibly it’s time to start out trying into simply how Comer’s kin do make a dwelling. Absolutely every part they’ve ever executed must be regarded into, even earlier than Comer was elected to Congress. Appears solely truthful.
