Innocent until proven guilty

The Republicans in the House of Representatives have pledged that they would prove the Biden family has accepted bribes and engaged in influence peddling. They have launched a significant investigation into Hunter Biden and the Biden family. The Republican Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer, has led the attack. On Wednesday, May 10th, the Chairman released his finding to date. And it was a big nothing. He and his committee could not present evidence that Joe Biden and his family engaged in influence peddling for personal gain or that they committed any crimes. And in the U.S., you are considered innocent until proven guilty. The Comer Committee is the joke of the U.S. Capital.

The Comer Report (the Report) highlighted that some members of the Biden family had received over $10 million in fees over 15 years. The House panel focused on two sources of payments: CEFEC -China Energy Co, and Gabriel Popoviciu. The Comer Report provides few details and no smoking guns. It states that the Biden family’s and associates' activities in Romania bear clear indicia of a scheme to peddle influence from 2015 to 2017, saying that while Biden was vice president, his son Hunter, through an associate, received more than $1 million from a company controlled by a Romanian official accused of corruption. (In 2016, Popoviciu, a Romanian business executive, was convicted of fraud and corruption in his home country.)
