U.S. Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., told Newsmax on Monday the Department of Justice has been running interference for the Biden administration and there is a compromised president sitting in the White House.
Oversight and Accountability Chair James Comer, R-Ky., said Sunday money obtained by the Biden family influenced "six specific decisions" Joe Biden made while vice president or president.
"It's our job as oversight to conduct these nonpartisan investigations and ensure that especially the White House and the individual sitting in the president's chair is not working to benefit another country and undermine our positions in the world stage," Luna told "Carl Higbie FRONTLINE."
Luna said in order to hold members of the Biden family accountable, Republicans need to take over the Senate and the White House in 2024.
"What our goal is for this next term is to ensure that we have all the facts so that when we do take back the Senate and the White House, which it appears that we are going to do, according to national polling, that we can then write the legislation and then also to hold these people accountable," Luna said.
"It is really frustrating, even for myself a member of House Oversight, to see that we would like to bring charges against these people, we would like to hold them [accountable] for perjuring themselves to Congress. But ultimately, even if we tried, this administration would again run interference for these individuals. That's why we so desperately need to take back the White House and why we ultimately need to take back the Senate, as well."
Comer said Sunday at least 12 members of Biden's family received money from foreign entities in an alleged influence peddling scheme. Luna said she believes the committee can make the allegations stick.
"I love Chairman Comer and he's doing some really good stuff," Luna said. "But what's even crazier to me is that you have these facts. These are not just made-up conspiracy, right-wing theories. These are facts that are coming from the Department of Treasury, right? These are like actual investigation reports that we're getting, and yet the media is still running interference for this administration and the family. If we were talking about someone like [Donald Trump Jr.] who was doing this, you know that he would have been in jail by now.
"It really does show that there's a double standard in the justice system and we're going to get to the bottom of it."
