Oversight Democrats Release Additional Factsheet on the Devon Archer Business Transaction with Yelena Baturina

Washington, D.C. (December 11, 2023)— This week, Speaker Johnson is asking House Republicans to endorse Chairman Comer’s nearly yearlong investigation of President Joe Biden and his family, which has been fueled by distorted and cherry-picked facts and long debunked conspiracy theories. 

 

To make sure Republican Members are fully informed of the facts as they consider whether to vote to make this investigation the centerpiece of Republicans’ agenda for 2024, Oversight Democrats are releasing a series of fact sheets that undercut the core allegations in this inquiry by debunking the false claims regarding obstruction, the Burisma lie, Joe Biden’s loans to his brother, and a $3.5 million transaction between Devon Archer and Yelena Baturina, the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow.  These materials come on the heels of an Oversight Committee Democrats’ memo addressing all of Republicans’ false justifications for an impeachment inquiry.

 

After nearly a year of investigating President Joe Biden and his family, Republicans have no evidence of any wrongdoing by President Biden, let alone any impeachable offense.  Instead, House Republicans’ investigation has been marred by cherry-picked facts and outright lies that have been repeatedly fact-checked and discredited by news organizations across the political spectrum.

 

 

While House Republican Leadership demands that the Republican Conference vote to formalize and endorse this sham impeachment inquiry, Chairman Comer has repeatedly failed to make the case for his investigation and repeatedly failed to identify a single piece of evidence suggesting wrongdoing by President Biden, much less an impeachable offense.

 

Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy reported last week, “The House Oversight Committee has been at this for years, and they have so far not been able to provide any concrete evidence that Joe Biden personally profited from his son Hunter's overseas business.”  So, why would Republican Members vote to endorse this inquiry and commit themselves to making this failed investigation the centerpiece of their agenda for 2024?
