Comer said he has now made headway with his requests for Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen to hand over the suspicious bank activity reports and Financial Crimes Enforcement Network documents related to Walker and linked to the Biden family.
“We just got word, Treasury is going to let us have access to the suspicious activity reports,” Comer said while appearing on Hannity Monday. “So, there is still a lot to learn how we are going to receive those, but we’re moving in a good direction with respect to this investigation.”
“We’ve been demanding these for over a year,” Comer added. “Treasury Secretary Yellen said we couldn’t have them because we were in the minority. When the House flipped, she said, ‘I don’t understand the purpose for why you need these suspicious activity reports,’ which is a joke. Then we asked for a committee hearing with the person from Treasury that signed the letter declining our most recent invitation. They said they had surgery that day. They offered another person. This person then declined. So, we offered to invite them in with a threat of a subpoena for a transcribed interview.”
Comer had argued that the Treasury Department was stonewalling his investigation efforts seeking answers on Hunter Biden’s financial transactions linked to China, Russia, and elsewhere .
Comer called the information received thus far from subpoenas “very serious” and “very troubling.”
