(DCWatchdog.com) – An informant that is crucial to the House Republicans’ investigation into the financial affairs of President Joe Biden’s family is missing, Oversight Committee chairman James Comer announced.

Comer’s revelation came on Sunday, after last Wednesday, he announced his committee’s findings that Joe Biden and nine other family members received some $10 million in bank transfers from Romania and Communist China, starting when he was still Barack Obama’s vice president.
Speaking on the Fox News program “Sunday Morning Futures,” the Kentucky Republican said the missing informant was linked to an IRS whistleblower revealing Biden’s Justice Department had mishandled a probe into First Son Hunter Biden.
“Unfortunately, we can’t track down the informant. We’re hopeful that the informant is still there. The whistleblower knows the informant. The whistleblower is very credible,” Comer told host Maria Bartiromo.
He revealed the informant was “in the spy business” and “they don’t make a habit of being seen a lot.”
“The nine of the ten people that we’ve identified that have very good knowledge with respect to the Bidens, they’re one of three things. They’re either currently in court, they’re currently in jail, or they’re currently missing,” Comer revealed further.
He added his committee had received “basic information” about the missing informant’s allegations.
“It’s very serious. It alleges that Joe Biden when he was vice president, was involved in a quid pro quo with a foreign country in exchange for foreign aid,” said Comer.
He dwelled on why the FBI has refused to hand over an informant file he had subpoenaed, which allegedly implicates Biden in corruption.
“This is a very serious accusation. All the FBI has to do is say, yeah, we looked into it, and it wasn’t a credible informant. But they won’t answer our questions,” Comer said.
“All we’re asking the FBI with respect to Form 1023 is, ‘What did you do to investigate this allegation?’ And they send us back a very patronizing letter, basically saying, ‘Just trust us and don’t worry about it.’ I mean, this is a pattern of behavior by the FBI that would suggest there’s been a cover-up for many years with respect to the Biden influence peddling,” the House Republican elaborated.
He pointed to a recent Rasmussen Poll showing that over two-thirds of Americans were “very concerned” about claims implicating Joe Biden in influence peddling and corruption schemes.
“[There are] people that want to come forward but… they fear for their lives. Not only are the Biden lawyers and the White House intimidating them, the media is trying to intimidate and discredit them,” Comer said.
He emphasized certain Biden policy decisions “make no sense” – for instance, killing the China Initiative of the Trump administration, an FBI operation against a Communist spy ring in US colleges and universities.
“China sends students over here. They want to volunteer to be in our research and development programs, and they steal our intellectual property and send it back to China. This has been happening for a decade. Every university president knows it,” the House Oversight Committee chairman said.
He said Biden killed off the program, claiming Chinese students were racially profiled.
“Why would he do something like that when every major company in America complains about China stealing our intellectual property?… Joe Biden took China’s side and put China first and America last. Now we find out his family received millions and millions of dollars from the Chinese Communist Party. It sure looks fishy to me,” Comer commented.
