James Comer Promises To Investigate Biden, Fauci, and the Border Crisis
(TheRedWire.com) – Republicans are preparing to take over the House and sideline House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Democrats in January. Starting in January, numerous committees under GOP leaders are planning to hold hearings on various topics. Among them is the House Oversight Committee, likely led by Rep. James Comer (R-KY). On Friday, November 11, the committee’s current ranking member told Fox News host Pete Hegseth that he promises to investigate President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and the immigration crises on the southern border.
The Biden family has a pattern of peddling access to the highest levels of government to enrich themselves, often to the detriment of U.S. interests.@GOPoversight will continue to follow the facts to provide Americans with answers, transparency, and accountability. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/w3NwcMxVWm

Regarding Biden, Comer said the committee needs to look into the family influence-peddling. He said there could be a national security risk due to the president’s poor decisions before he entered office. The Kentucky Republican added that Hunter Biden’s reportedly shady business deals could have compromised his father.
Comer noted the committee planned to learn more about the origin of COVID-19. He said GOP members believed that Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins might have hindered early investigations and alleged they may not have been honest about how they spent government money with the Wuhan lab.
Finally, the potential incoming chairman said whistleblowers from the Border Patrol have allegedly talked with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. They alleged he told them to stand down at the southern border. Comer wants to determine if the allegation is true as border encounters continue to spike at record levels.
