Comer and Donalds Eye Air Force Two Records, Seek Clarity on Biden’s VP Tenure


In a fresh drive for transparency, Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida and Rep. James Comer of Kentucky, both influential figures on the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, are setting their investigative focus on potential links between then-Vice President Joe Biden’s official duties and his son’s business activities.

The duo’s primary tool in this quest? A detailed letter to Archivist Colleen Shogan of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), articulating the precise records they aim to review. The objective behind this push is crystal clear: the duo believes that these records could shed light on any potential overlap between Biden’s role as VP and his family’s business endeavors.

In a recent appearance on Newsmax TV’s “National Report,” Comer didn’t mince words. He voiced concerns about Biden’s tenure as VP, describing it with a strong assertion: “probably the most corrupt vice president in the history of America.” Comer juxtaposed this remark with Biden’s claim of transparency, noting the apparent contradiction and urging the president to work with the committee if there’s indeed “nothing to see here.”

Putting words into action, Comer and Donalds have formally requested NARA to provide information pertinent to the use of Air Force Two during the Obama-Biden administration. Their expectation, as articulated by Comer, is that the National Archives will empower the Oversight Committee to furnish the level of transparency that the American public expects and deserves.

Delving into the specifics, the records being sought include communications from the Executive Office of the President (and notably the VP’s office) from January 20, 2009, to January 20, 2017. The content in focus relates to certain Biden family members or associates, particularly their travels on Air Force Two or Marine Two.

Yet, Comer’s call isn’t merely for record access. He’s emphatically challenging his Democratic colleagues, asking them to critically evaluate the weight of the evidence amassing against the former VP. This includes alleged pseudonyms used by Biden in communications with his son, Hunter.

In a rallying call, Comer asked his counterparts: “Can they defend the pseudonyms? Can they defend the payments going to things of value for Joe Biden?” These questions, he believes, will test Democratic allegiance, pressing them to decide if they can continue standing beside Biden amidst these swirling concerns.

While this chapter in American politics unfolds, it serves as a vivid reminder that calls for transparency and accountability are not only inevitable but necessary for preserving trust in democratic systems.
