The House Oversight and Accountability Committee plans to subpoena Democrat President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden over allegations that they peddled influence to secure millions of dollars in payoffs during foreign business dealings.
Oversight Panel Chairman, GOP James Comer of Kentucky, delivered a third round of banks records Wednesday, bringing the total of payments to $20 million in the official paper trail from Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Russia during now-President Joe Biden’s vice presidency during the Obama administration.
“It’s clear Joe Biden knew about his son’s business dealings, lied to the American people & allowed himself to be ‘the brand’ sold to enrich the Bidens while he was VP of the United States,” tweeted Comer on X, formerly known as Twitter, Thursday morning.
“This is public corruption at the highest levels of our federal government,” continued Comer.
On Thursday, Comer told Fox Business, “This is always going to end within the Bidens coming in front of the committee. We are going to subpoena the family.”
Comer added that with all the obstruction and opposition from Biden’s attorneys, “we know this is going to end up in court when we subpoena the Bidens.”
Biden’s legal counsel claims allegations don’t tie Joe Biden to Hunter’s business
President Biden’s legal counsel claims the most recent allegations do not tie Joe Biden to Hunter Biden’s foreign influence peddling.
Comer appeared Wednesday on Newsmax and said the president’s team should be more transparent with requests for information.
“If the president has done nothing wrong, then they should allow us to see their personal banks records,” said Comer on “Rob Schmitt Tonight.”
“If there’s nothing to hide, then they should be transparent with us, with their financial records, and stop obstructing and intimidating our witnesses and blocking us from more bank records,” said Comer.
President Biden snapped at a reporter Wednesday after being asked about a former business associate of Hunter Biden, Devon Archer’s congressional testimony.
“I never talked business with anybody, and I knew you’d have a lousy question,” said Biden to the reporter, Peter Doocy, who then asked the president why it was a lousy question.
“Because it’s not true,” said the president before walking away.
Last week, Archer told congressional investigators that then-Vice President Joe Biden joined his son’s calls during dinners and business meetings, where foreign businessmen heard his voice and were present, which was the “prize” in luring foreign businesses to pay to send “signals” to the upper levels of the Obama White House.
