Former Vice President Mike Pence thanked Rep. James Comer (R-KY) on Wednesday for revealing financial data pertaining to Hunter Biden-linked business dealings in Romania and China.
Pence said he was certain House Republican leaders will hold the Biden family accountable for alleged deception about collecting money from China and a conflict of interest by putting Hunter Biden on the board of a foreign corporation.
“When I was vice president of the United States, my son wasn’t sitting on the board of a foreign corporation,” Pence told Fox News anchor Sean Hannity. “The most shocking thing that came up in the hearing today was when Congressman Comer disclosed that back in 2020, [President]
Joe Biden declared repeatedly that he and their family, their enterprises, had never received any money from China. Using Congress’s subpoena power and bank information, they uncovered that Chinese money poured into the Biden family’s account.
On Wednesday, House Oversight Committee chairman Comer released a 36-page memo claiming that bank records the committee subpoenaed show “the Biden family, their business associates, and their companies received over $10 million” from foreign national companies while Biden was vice president under former President Barack Obama and after he left public office in early 2017.
The latest memo links payments to various family members but not the president.
Pence said he did not “comprehend” the payments but that the Biden family will be punished.
“The American people deserve answers, and I just am so proud of members of Congress for holding them accountable,” Pence added. This is why the Constitution separates powers. This is why Congress has authority and must investigate. They must hold Joe Biden’s family accountable for the truth. Americans deserve better.”
Pence’s Fox visit followed Trump’s CNN debut since his 2016 presidential campaign. During the town hall, Trump refused to apologize for criticizing Pence after the 2020 election, saying his former vice president “did something wrong.”
The former running partners have seldom seen together since leaving the White House. Trump has declared his 2024 presidential candidacy, but Pence is pondering a challenge. Pence will decide in June.
