Top Congressman Calls for Probe of Secret Service’s ‘Bizarre’ Actions
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1929: The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in Chicago — seven gangsters killed, allegedly on Al Capone’s orders.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY) has called for an investigation into the Secret Service over its alleged role in a “bizarre” effort to protect Hunter Biden.
Comer, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, raised concerns over the fact Hunter Biden was shielded by the Secret Service in 2018 — while the Biden family did not have protection from the agency.
“Joe Biden received Secret Service protection six months after he left the vice presidency and at the point when he declared for president. So there was about a two-and-a-half-year period there where the American people weren’t providing Secret Service protection for the Bidens, yet there are numerous instances where the Secret Service always showed up to try to help Hunter Biden,” Comer said during an appearance on Fox News. “It’s bizarre.”
The Republican congressman joined the Fox News show Fox & Friends First to discuss the concerns raised by a new report that shows the Secret Service’s alleged involvement in a 2018 incident regarding Hunter Biden’s firearm.
“There are numerous instances where the Secret Service came and tried to bail Hunter out when he was in a jam,” Comer said. “When he was in California and getting in all kinds of trouble — getting kicked out of a very exclusive hotel there — the Secret Service showed up to try to see if there was some way they could get him back to Delaware, to his family, to protect him.”
“And then with this gun application, there’s reports that the Secret Service went and visited the gun dealer and wanted a copy of the application,” he continued. “And I don’t believe the gun dealer gave the Secret Service a copy of that application — but regardless of the fact, at that point in time, Joe Biden did not have Secret Service protection.”
Comer called on President Joe Biden to “come forward and be transparent, not just with the American people, but especially with the House Oversight Committee, because we have a major investigation here and the Secret Service should now [be] a part of it.”
