As part of the House Oversight Committee’s ongoing investigations into Hunter Biden’s shady overseas business dealings, Chairman James Comer (R-KY) on Sunday quietly subpoenaed Bank of America for fourteen years of bank records relating to three of Hunter Biden’s business associates. On Tuesday, it was widely reported that Comer gained access to those records which reportedly even implicated an unnamed Biden family member. While Fox News Channel’s Special Report dedicated a full segment to the news, all three evening news broadcasts ignored the story.
Instead of reporting on the news that Comer gained access to damaging bank records associated with three of Hunter Biden’s corrupt business associates, ABC’s World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News decided to waste valuable airtime on frivolous stories like gushing over feminazi Congresswoman Pat Schroeder (ABC), tips on sleeping better (CBS), and local weather reports (NBC).
During the Special Report segment, congressional correspondent Aishah Hasnie broke news that “House Oversight Chairman James Comer says he’s discovered another one of President Biden's family members may be involved in influence peddling.”
The reportedly incriminating evidence revealed that a former Clinton administration official and Hunter Biden associate Rob Walker “received a $3 million wire from individuals associated with the Chinese Communist Party.”
Even worse was the revelation that Walker “transferred those funds into the accounts of three Biden family members,” Hasnie reported.
Predictably, Democrats on the House Oversight Committee lost it. Ranking member Jamie Raskin (D-MD) sent a letter to Comer to accuse him of “engaging in these efforts to prevent the production of evidence of former President Trump's misconduct during his time in office.”
Comer pushed back on that and claimed “I haven't spoken to Donald Trump since he left office. I don't even know who Donald Trump's attorneys are.”
At the end of her report, Hasnie said her network “reached out to Hunter Biden's attorney looking for a comment,” but “haven't received one yet.”
Meanwhile, the three networks will continue ignoring the Hunter Biden scandals for as long as they can until it becomes impossible for them to do so.
This bias by omission from the three networks was made possible by WeatherTech on ABC, Liberty Mutual on CBS, and ADT on NBC. Their information is linked.

FNC’s Special Report
6:08:24 p.m. Eastern
BRET BAIER: The head of the House Oversight Committee is teasing a new chapter in the Hunter Biden scandal. Republicans are getting new documents about the financial dealings of the President's son, and other members of the Biden family. Democrats say it's all political. Congressional correspondent Aishah Hasnie has the latest tonight from capitol hill.
AISHAH HASNIE: House Oversight Chairman James Comer says he’s discovered another one of President Biden's family members may be involved in influence peddling.
REP. JAMES COMER: So we’ve got a problem here.
HASNIE: The new accusation comes after Comer subpoenaed Bank of America for a whopping 14 years' worth of bank records related to three associates of Hunter Biden. Including Rob Walker, a former Clinton official. Comer says Walker's account activity reveals it received a $3 million wire from individuals associated with the Chinese Communist Party. About 2 months after then Vice President Biden left office. He explains the Walker account then transferred those funds into the accounts of three Biden family members. Including someone they’ve never investigated before.
COMER: Well, they’re a Biden. I'm not gonna disclose that new name because that really changes things. Because what we assumed was this was just about the President's son and two brothers.
HASNIE: Comer wants to know why the Biden family was receiving money. But House Oversight ranking member Jamie Raskin is calling the subpoena invasive and overbroad. Firing off a letter to Comer accusing him of engaging in these efforts to prevent the production of evidence of former President Trump's misconduct during his time in office. Comer rejects that.
COMER: I haven't spoken to Donald Trump since he left office. I don't even know who Donald Trump's attorneys are.
HASNIE: Now, Bret, Fox has reached out to Hunter Biden's attorney looking for a comment. We haven't received one yet. Meantime, Chairman Comer has also revealed the Treasury Department will now allow this committee to review those suspicious activity reports that were flagged by several banks in relation to Hunter Biden's business dealings. We'll get to that soon. Bret?
