Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., has stated that the Oversight Committee’s Biden impeachment inquiry may soon result in the issuance of criminal referrals, amid the months-long investigation, testimony, and questions in Congress.

In comments made to Fox Business Network, Comer revealed that he didn’t think that there had “ever been in the history of Congress, criminal referrals to an immediate president of the United States and their family.”

He added that the committee wanted to “give the Bidens every opportunity” and that their investigation was “fair and balanced.” As far as a timeline on when those criminal referrals may come down, the congressman stated that it could happen “within weeks.”

Rep. Comer is the chairman of the House Oversight Committee and has been overseeing the congressional impeachment inquiry taking a look at alleged financial gains that Joe Biden and his family may have benefitted from in relation to his son Hunter’s foreign business deals.

This week, the committee sent a letter to White House Special Counsel Richard Sauber notifying him that they had renewed their requests for documents related to Biden’s interactions with his son’s businesses. Biden himself has also been invited to provide his own testimony in front of Congress, but that has failed to happen, as well.

Chairman Comer wrote in his letter:

“The White House’s total contempt for congressional investigations—a strategy recently attempted by the Biden Administration’s Department of Justice, and which was excoriated by the judiciary—is puzzling given its insistence on the President’s innocence. Though presidents before Joe Biden have provided testimony to congressional committees, the President has apparently refused to do so, despite the majority of voters agreeing that the President should testify about his family’s pay-for-influence schemes.”

On X, Comer recently posited, “Joe Biden is refusing to testify in public about the Bidens’ corrupt influence peddling…Americans deserve answers to these very simple, straightforward questions.”
