During Thursday’s House Oversight Committee impeachment inquiry hearing entitled “The Basis for an Impeachment Inquiry of President Joseph R. Biden, Jr,” committee chair Rep. James Comer (R-KY) wrapped the first inquiry by dropping a bombshell announcement.
“The witnesses today have all identified the evidence the committee has uncovered as deserving further inquiry —and that’s what this committee will do,” Comer said. “I will subpoena the bank records of Hunter Biden, James Biden, and their affiliated companies.”
Additionally, Comer issued an official statement:
“From day one of our investigation of Joe Biden’s abuse of public office, we’ve followed the money and that continues with today’s subpoenas for Hunter and James Biden’s bank records. Bank records don’t lie, and coupled with witness testimony, they reveal that Joe Biden abused his public office for his family’s financial gain. The financial records obtained to date reveal a pattern where the Bidens sold access to Joe Biden around the world to enrich the Biden family. As the Bidens were sealing deals around the world, Joe Biden showed up, met with, talked with, shook hands with, and had meetings with the foreign nationals sending money to his family. This culture of corruption demands further investigation. The Oversight Committee, as well as the Committees on the Judiciary and Ways and Means, will continue to follow the money to determine whether President Biden’s involvement in his family’s corrupt business schemes makes him compromised and threatens our national security. We will continue to provide the answers, transparency, and accountability that the American people demand and deserve,” said Oversight Committee Chairman Comer.
