WASHINGTON—House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) today subpoenaed President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, his brother, James Biden, and associate of the Biden family, Rob Walker, to appear for depositions. President Comer also requested that other members of the Biden family and their associates come forward for transcribed interviews. Chairman Comer plans to send additional subpoenas and transcribed interview requests later this week.
“The House Oversight Committee followed the money and built a dossier of evidence revealing how Joe Biden knew, was involved in, and benefited from his family’s influence peddling schemes. Now the House Oversight Committee will bring in members of the Biden family and their associates for questioning about this body of evidence. » said President Comer. “Contrary to the many lies President Biden has told the American people about his family’s business ventures, bank statements don’t lie. These documents reveal how the Bidens sold Joe Biden around the world to benefit the Biden family, including Joe Biden himself, to the detriment of American interests. The House Oversight Committee, along with the Judiciary and Ways and Means Committees, will continue to follow the facts and ensure the transparency and accountability that the American people demand and deserve.
According to financial records obtained Per the House Oversight Committee, the Biden family created more than 20 shell companies — most of which were created when Joe Biden was vice president — in a concerted effort to hide payments from foreign adversaries. The Biden family, its associates and businesses received more than $24 million from foreign nationals over a period of approximately five years, including millions of dollars from China, Russia, Ukraine, Romania and Kazakhstan. The Bidens and their associates engaged in complex financial transactions to conceal the source and total amount of money they received from foreign nationals and companies.
Devon Archer, a Biden family associate, testified that Joe Biden was “the brand” that the Bidens were selling around the world and using to send signals of access, power and influence. Archer admitted that Joe Biden was put on speakerphone by Hunter Biden with his associates over twenty times; he dined with his family’s foreign associates, including Russian and Kazakh oligarchs, as well as a Ukrainian leader under investigation for corruption; and had coffee with Hunter’s Chinese business partner and then wrote his daughter a college recommendation letter.
Recently, the House Oversight Committee identified two checks described as “loan repayments” from James and Sara Biden to Joe Biden that were funded by money laundered in China And influence peddling schemes at the national level. After President Comer called to President Biden to provide proof of loan to his brother, the The White House refused.
“President Biden and his administration have continually changed their narratives throughout this investigation. You know who has been consistent? IRS whistleblowers. Every piece of evidence we collect corroborates the whistleblowers’ stories. These subpoenas are a necessary next step as House Republicans impose accountability on the American people,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).
“The American people are learning the truth about how the Biden family sold access to Joe Biden and his political influence around the world. » said Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R-Mo.). “Based on evidence uncovered by an ongoing Congressional investigation that includes testimony from two courageous IRS whistleblowers, we know that President Biden lied when he said he had no knowledge of his son’s business dealings; we know he was not only aware but involved; and it has now become quite clear that he actually benefited from it. No one should be immune from legal scrutiny based on their last name. Congress has a constitutional duty to exercise oversight to determine whether our nation’s elected leaders have used their public offices to enrich themselves or their families and, more importantly, whether these public officials may be compromised by relationships foreign business of their family. Subpoenaing key members of the Biden family’s influence peddling operation is the logical next step in this investigation.
