Comer: Subpoenas Await Biden Family

House Oversight Chairman to Subpoena President Biden's Family in Corruption Investigation

House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has announced that members of President Joe Biden's family will be subpoenaed as part of a corruption investigation. Comer stated that his panel is gathering financial records and testimony to build a strong case that can hold up in court. The investigation is focused on the flow of millions of dollars from foreign nationals to members of the First Family. This investigation could potentially lead to an impeachment inquiry in the future.

Investigation into Biden Family's Finances

Republican Congressman James Comer has stated that the House Oversight Committee plans to subpoena President Joe Biden's family as part of an ongoing investigation. Comer believes that the case will likely end up in court due to the opposition and obstruction they are facing from the Biden attorneys. The committee is currently gathering evidence to build their case.

Foreign Payments to the Bidens

In a recent interview with Maria Bartiromo, Republican Representative James Comer discussed the findings of a GOP-led oversight panel. According to staff memos, the panel has identified over $20 million in payments to the Bidens from foreign sources, including China, Russia, Ukraine, Romania, and Kazakhstan. These payments were made through a network of more than 20 companies, raising concerns about potential influence peddling and the susceptibility of President Joe Biden to outside influence. Comer has suggested that at least twelve members of the Biden family may have been involved in an "influence peddling scheme."

Potential Impeachment Inquiry

The Oversight Committee is working on legislative solutions to strengthen ethics laws and financial disclosure rules. However, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has suggested that the investigation into the Biden family's finances could potentially lead to an impeachment inquiry. While McCarthy has not committed to the impeachment process, there is speculation that an inquiry could begin in the coming months as the 2024 presidential election cycle intensifies.

Focusing on Hunter Biden

Congressional investigators are focusing on Hunter Biden, the son of the president, as he is also under federal criminal investigation. His former business partner, Devon Archer, testified to the House Oversight Committee that the Biden family's reputation helped their business ventures while Joe Biden was vice president.

Allegations of Business Discussions

According to a source named Archer, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, frequently put his father on speaker phone during meetings with business associates. These calls were described as being "signal enough to be powerful," even though the conversations were mostly about casual topics like the weather or fishing. Archer also claimed that Joe Biden attended some dinners with Hunter's foreign business associates.

Criticism from Democrats

Democrats in Congress are criticizing the House Oversight Committee investigation into the Bidens. Representative Jamie Raskin, a Democrat from Maryland and the ranking member on the panel, accused his Republican colleagues of releasing information on financial transactions that do not involve the president. He also claimed that Republicans are trying to bring up Hunter Biden's business dealings, which were already identified by Congressional Republicans three years ago.

Changing Stance on Business Dealings

The article discusses how President Joe Biden has been changing his stance on his involvement in his son Hunter's business dealings. Initially, Biden claimed to have never spoken to Hunter about his business dealings. However, as more evidence has been uncovered, the White House now asserts that the president never engaged in business with his son. The article also mentions an incident where Biden snapped at a reporter who asked about his calls with Hunter's business associates, stating that he never discussed business with anyone.

Denial of Allegations

Former Vice President Joe Biden is denying claims made by his son's former business associates that he was frequently on speakerphone discussing business matters with them. When asked about these allegations, Biden responded that he never talked business with anyone and dismissed the question as untrue.

Evidence of President Biden Lying

According to a tweet from RNC Research, James Comer, the chairman of a committee, claims that investigators have found evidence of President Biden lying and that bank records support these findings. Comer also mentioned that the committee plans to speak with three or four more associates before potentially subpoenaing members of the Biden family.
