The newly minted Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, R-La., reaffirmed his support for House Republicans’ investigations into Joe Biden and his family’s suspicious alleged foreign business dealings this week.

“They are following the truth where it leads and they have my full support as they continue the impeachment inquiry into President Biden,” he wrote on X.

This week, Speaker Johnson, along with several House Republicans like Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, Rep. Jason Smith, R-Mo., and Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., sat down for a special interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. Other House Republicans later joined the conversation as well to speak about different topics, such as America’s support for Israel in their war against Hamas.

However, on the issue of the Biden family, Speaker Johnson has clearly indicated that Reps. Jordan, Smith, and Comer (Chairmen of the Judiciary Committee, Oversight Committee, and Ways and Means Committee, respectively) are “leading through investigations into the Biden family business dealings.”

He called the evidence that they have brought forward so far “compelling” for the American people.

Most recently, the House Oversight Committee uncovered two alleged checks that clocked in at $240,000 that were deposited into Joe Biden’s bank account. The money was reportedly “laundered” from James Biden’s account (Joe Biden’s brother) and his wife, Sara, via a personal check.

The Oversight Committee traced a line between July and August of 2017, laying out a money trail of hundreds of thousands of dollars linked to Chinese companies and associates like Northern International Capital, CEFC, Raymond Zhou, and Hudson West III.

President Donald Trump weighed in on the latest Oversight findings on Thursday during a speech in Houston, Texas. He joked that the country of China “know[s] more about him [Biden] than we do!”

He also claimed that Biden was “compromised” in his position as Commander-in-Chief, alleging that Biden’s reported business deals with foreign entities makes him subservient to them in foreign policy negotiations.
