House Republicans Quietly Halt Inquiry Into Trump's Finances

Meanwhile, they are re-focusing on alleged relations between Biden, China

House Republicans have quietly halted a congressional investigation into whether Donald Trump profited improperly from the presidency, declining to enforce a court-supervised settlement agreement that demanded that Mazars USA, his former accounting firm, produce his financial records to Congress.

Rep. James Comer. (R-KY) chair of the Oversight and Accountability Committee, made clear he had abandoned any investigation into the former president’s financial dealings — professing ignorance about the inquiry Democrats opened when they controlled the House — and was instead focusing on whether President Joe Biden and members of his family were involved in an influence-peddling scheme.

"I honestly didn't even know who or what Mazars was," said Comer, who was the senior Republican on the oversight panel during the last Congress, while Democrats waged a lengthy legal fight over obtaining documents from the firm. "What exactly are they looking for?They've been 'investigating' Trump for six years. I know exactly what I'm investigating: money the Bidens [allegedly] received from China."
