James Comer (R-KY) of the House Oversight Committee is now reportedly accusing the Biden administration of acting in bad faith and purposefully impeding his committee’s inquiry into the Biden family’s highly questionable finances.
Comer stated in a letter to the Treasury Department released on Monday that the department has been unusually delayed in responding to committee demands for Suspicious Activity Reports filed about transactions between members of President Joe Biden’s family with foreign businesspeople.
The Treasury Department is obstructing our investigation into the Biden family’s business schemes.

Isabella More, the Treasury’s deputy assistant secretary for oversight, told congressional investigators last week that the agency must still meet with law enforcement partners due to the sensitivity of the records requested by the committee.
More might better explain herself at a hearing before the committee, according to the committee chairman.
The chairmen then asked the Treasury officer to speak before the committee on March 10.
Comer’s probe into the Biden family’s finances is one of several different investigation begun by House Republicans under the Biden administration since the GOP captured control of the lower chamber in the November elections.
Comer’s principal focus has been on probing suspicions regarding President Biden’s family’s international business dealings.
The president has repeatedly denied knowing anything about his son’s international business transactions, despite evidence found in his son Hunter’s abandoned laptop suggesting otherwise.
