The House Oversight Committee’s investigation into Hunter Biden’s business dealings could result in “criminal referrals” to the Department of Justice, according to Committee Chair James Comer.

Some Republicans argue this would be a symbolic move with little accountability, while others believe referrals could spur action if Republicans regain control of the DOJ after the 2024 election.

“I think that we’re at the point in the investigation where we need to hear the discrepancies,” Comer said. “I fully expect Hunter Biden to show up.”

“If he [Hunter] does not show up, then it’s not going to end well for the Bidens, because we have three witnesses … that have already testified under oath to significantly different stories as to what exactly the Biden influence peddling schemes were,” he said.

“This is very serious because we’re at the point now of criminal referrals,” Comer said.

Comer and other Republicans like Gaetz, Issa, and Higgins have said the investigation has found evidence of wrongdoing and influence peddling by the Biden family, though the standards for impeachment are high.

“We have spent a year investigating this. We have faced massive obstruction from the White House, from the Biden legal team, yet we have been able to get probably 80 percent of the information that we have requested,” he said. “We have accumulated lots of evidence of wrongdoing.” (Trending: Joe Biden Gets Bad News From Texas Judge)

“I can’t tell you a single legitimate business the Bidens had, other than they were influence peddling,” Comer added.

They maintain criminal referrals are a better option than impeachment, and that ultimately voters will decide Biden’s fate in the 2024 election.

“He [Joe Biden] deserves them,” Rep. Matt Gaetz said of the criminal referrals.

“I don’t think that a sufficient number of Republicans hold the view I do that a bribe can be consummated through a payment to a family member,” Gaetz added. “The D.O.J. is about to change hands … It’s about to be under new management.”

“If our investigation reveals that impeachment is not a righteous pursuit, perhaps a criminal referral is,” Rep. Clay Higgins said.

“It’s a much heavier lift for impeachment,” he added. “So I would say that no matter what the Oversight Committee does, the American people are going to have an opportunity in November to make a decision.”

Hunter Biden has refused to testify publicly after initially agreeing to do so.
