Two Republicans who are likely to become chairs of key investigative committees in the House of Representatives have both vowed to subpoena Joe Biden’s son Hunter and brother James over their suspicious overseas business dealings.
Just The News reports that Congressman James Comer (R-Ky.), who is likely to become the next chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said he will seek to compel testimony from both Bidens if the GOP wins the majority back in November.
“We’re gonna ask them to testify, and when they say no, then we’ll subpoena them,” Comer said in an interview. “So that’ll be probably the first subpoena issued by a Republican majority.”
Comer noted that the subpoenas would not simply be “picking on Hunter Biden for political reasons,” but instead would be because “we believe that Hunter Biden and his shady business dealings have compromised Joe Biden in some of the decisions that he’s making, especially when you look at decisions he’s made with respect to China, and with respect to Russia.”
“We consider this a priority for the American people,” Comer added. “We should consider this a national security risk, and we’re not going to let up on it.”
Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who is most likely to become the next chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, vowed to act on information that his office has received from whistleblowers at the FBI, alleging that the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) deliberately covered up certain information about Hunter Biden related to his potentially scandalous foreign business deals. Jordan also said he would focus on the agencies’ intentional exaggerations regarding so-called “domestic terrorism” within the United States.
“They’re juicing the numbers, plain and simple,” Jordan said. “They set up this this office on domestic terrorism just a few months ago. This has been a big focus of the Democrats because they can’t talk about everything else that they’ve done wrong, every policy decision they made that’s been a disaster. So they’ve got this focus.”
“And we’ve had whistleblowers now, multiple whistleblowers, come to us and tell us they’re being pressured to catalog cases as domestic terrorism cases to, I think, fit this whole crazy political narrative that the Biden administration has,” Jordan continued.
Foreign business dealings have long been a staple of the Biden family since before Joe Biden rose to power, particularly with regards to his only remaining son, Hunter. Hunter’s affiliation with a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, saw his father use his power as then-vice president to force the then-president of Ukraine to fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma for corruption; the elder Biden later publicly boasted about this feat at a foreign policy panel.
In recent months, Biden’s repeated claims that he knew nothing about his son’s business affairs have come under greater scrutiny, with recently-uncovered evidence revealing that he indeed knew about such transactions, and even met with many of Hunter’s business partners while he was still vice president.
