U.S. House Republicans make investigation of Biden a top priority

After winning control of the U.S. House of Representatives, 

Republicans said on Thursday that investigating President Joe Biden and his family's business dealings will be their top 

oversight priority when they formally take power next year.

Representative James Comer, a Kentucky Republican who is expected to chair the House Oversight and Reform Committee,

told reporters that the panel will investigate bank reports and claims by anonymous whistleblowers that he said show

connections between the president and the business activities of his 52-year-old businessman son, Hunter Biden.

"I want to be clear. This is an investigation of Joe Biden. 

That's where the committee will focus in this next Congress," Comer told reporters.
