President Joe Biden, just as he ramps up his 2024 presidential campaign, could soon face the music as House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) intensifies an investigation into an alleged, multi-million-dollar bribery scheme with a Ukrainian oligarch.
According to the New York Post, Comer announced this week that more witnesses will be called in the investigation, meaning the Biden family influence-peddling scheme could soon be blown wide open.
"Our job in the House Oversight Committee is to follow the money. And we have more bank records coming in. We’re gonna start bringing in key figures in the Biden family influence-peddling schemes for depositions," Comer said during a recent Fox News appearance.
The Post noted:
Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) over the weekend accused the “the deep state bureaucracies” of turning a “blind eye” to Biden family business dealings and contended that his panel had made headway despite resistance from federal agencies under the current Democratic administration.
Comer added: "I think we’ve done as much as we could do with the obstacles we’ve had to overcome."
"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," he continued.
Comer has gone on record saying that a "highly credible" paid FBI informant detailed a bribery scheme that netted then-Vice President Joe Biden upwards of $10 million.
The Kentucky Republican hinted that the total could rise, significantly, up to $30 million when all of the evidence is sorted.

The bombshell revelations came after the FBI stonewalled the Oversight Committee in providing access to the document that the whistleblower testified contains all of the relevant information detailing the alleged bribery scheme.
The Post added:
Republicans who have seen the file claim that it outlines two $5 million transactions — including one to Biden and another to his son Hunter from Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings.
For its part, the White House has largely laughed off the matter, chalking it up to nothing more than a political game.
"The James Comer playbook is simple," administration spokesman Ian Sams tweeted.
He added: "Make sweeping claims and promise bombshells to try to get media attention, then fail to deliver the goods. Don’t fall for it. His repeated pattern of laundering thin innuendo without evidence has cost him his credibility."
