House Republicans intend to subpoena members of the Biden family, including Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, according to House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer of Kentucky.
The committee has been at the forefront of the investigation into Hunter Biden’s activities — particularly his foreign business dealings — during the Obama administration, when his father served as vice president.
“This was always going to end with the Bidens coming in front of the committee. We are going to subpoena the family. I mean, we are putting the case together to win in court,” Comer said during an appearance on the Fox Business show “Mornings with Maria.”
“Obviously, with all the opposition and obstruction we’re getting from the Biden attorneys now, we know that this is going to end up in court when we subpoena the Bidens. So we are putting together a case, and I think we’ve done that very well,” he said.
Wednesday, the committee released Biden family bank records. The committee stated in a press release that Biden family members and associates received more than $21 million from foreign businesses.
“During Joe Biden’s vice presidency, Hunter Biden sold him as ‘the brand’ to reap millions from oligarchs in Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine. It appears no real services were provided other than access to the Biden network, including Joe Biden himself,” Comer said in the release.
“It’s clear Joe Biden knew about his son’s business dealings and allowed himself to be ‘the brand’ sold to enrich the Biden family while he was Vice President of the United States,” the congressman said.
“The House Oversight Committee will continue to follow the money trail and obtain witness testimony to determine whether foreign actors targeted the Bidens, President Biden is compromised or corrupt, and our national security is threatened,” he said.
Comer stated on Thursday that the panel’s research was a prerequisite for issuing subpoenas.
“If I had subpoenaed Joe and Hunter Biden the first day I became chairman of the committee, it would have been tied up in court and the judge would have eventually thrown it out, because at that time the narrative was, well, they never took money when he was vice president, he never had communication with the business associates, and you know, the money never came from China,” the congressman told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo.
“We’ve had to go every step of the way and prove the media narrative was wrong and the vice president and the current president lied. We have caught Joe Biden in so many lies I can’t even count the number of lies now,” he said.
Biden, according to Comer, attempts to refute the truth.
“So we have put together a case that I think would stand up in any court of law in America. And we hope to hear from the Bidens soon,” he said. “But I wish the media would ask the president, ‘What exactly did your family do to receive this $21 million that the House Oversight Committee has proven?’ He just continues to say, ‘Well that’s a lie, that is not true.’
“We have their bank records, Maria. Bank records don’t lie.”
