House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.), in an interview with Just the News, stated that former Biden family friend Devon Archer’s testimony regarding his business and personal interactions with Hunter Biden and Joe Biden was highly incriminating and damaging.

In fact, Archer’s statements established “a real quid pro quo,” Comer claimed — not like the supposed quid pro quo with Ukraine that led to then-President Donald Trump’s impeachment by the Democrat-controlled House.

Archer allegedly informed the Oversight Committee that in December 2015, Hunter Biden faced pressure to leverage his connections in order to address Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma Holdings, the firm that employed Joe Biden’s son at the time.

Archer contended that the company’s survival hinged on the intervention of the Biden family; at the time, then-President Barack Obama had put then-Vice President Joe Biden in charge of handling U.S. affairs with Ukraine.

The GOP chairman recalled that “[i]t’s just unbelievable…We’ve brought forward, a few weeks ago, an FBI document that alleges that Joe Biden was involved in a bribery scheme for this very scenario…Now we know, despite Joe Biden saying he never had any knowledge of any of this, that he regularly spoke on the phone with the owners of these companies.”

“When in American history has a vice president ever taken an active role and demanded that a prosecutor be fired in a foreign country for simply investigating a business that was domiciled in that foreign country? Never. The evidence continues to mount that the real quid pro quo pertaining to Ukraine in Burisma was Joe Biden,” Comer added.

Comer went on to say that Joe Biden got Shokin fired because “he was closing in on his son” through the Burisma corruption investigations.

“I think that was basically what we learned today, and, you know, more and more people are going to come forward now,” Comer noted, referencing Archer’s supposedly testimony.

The evidence of potential wrongdoing by the Biden family in Ukraine raises significant questions about the foundation of Trump’s first impeachment; Trump was accused of misconduct in a phone call with President Zelensky, where he inquired about Biden’s alleged actions in connection to Burisma.

The Kentucky Republican argued that phone conversations between Hunter and Joe Biden were evidence of “influence peddling” and that “[t]hey were selling access to Joe, and I think most people in America would have a problem with that.”

“It was also mentioned that Joe Biden met with that Russian oligarch…I don’t know that we knew that. And yet, that Russian oligarch was one of the few oligarchs, the only oligarch that didn’t get sanctioned by Joe Biden,” Comer continued.

“And then you look at the decision as vice president where he went on TV and admitted and bragged about firing the prosecutor. Those are two decisions Joe Biden made as president and vice president that was counter to the best interests of the American people, but where he put the Biden family first and America last,” said Comer.
