Although Comer hasn’t specified who these criminal referrals would target, they could provide a way for Republicans to please those anxious for the Biden family to face some sort of consequences from the alleged influence-peddling scheme as the party looks unlikely to have the votes to successfully impeach the president.

Last year, the White House faced flak for omitting Hunter’s visits and extended stays from its visitor logs from the beginning of the Biden administration through Feb. 2023 despite claiming it was “the most transparent administration in American history.”
