House Oversight Committee to Start Deposing Biden Business Associates

Congressman James Comer (R-Ky.), the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, says that the committee will begin the process of deposing business associates of Hunter Biden and other Biden family members in the coming weeks.

As Breitbart reports, Comer said that the first such deposition will be for Devon Archer, one of Hunter’s top associates. An anonymous source said that Archer’s lawyers are already in contact with the committee to begin the process of scheduling the interview. Archer had previously been subpoenaed by the committee in June, originally demanding a date of June 19th, which was negotiated to a later date by Archer’s team.

“We are entering the deposition phase,” said Comer in an interview on Wednesday. “We will have Devon Archer, the first person who was involved in the Hunter Biden business dealings. He will be the first person we depose.”

“We have a list of who’s who that were involved in the Biden organization that we plan on deposing throughout the summer,” he added.

Archer, who has been described as Hunter’s “best friend in business,” served alongside Hunter on the board of the controversial Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings back in 2014. Although the Biden family’s involvement with Burisma has long been at the heart of corruption allegations, new revelations from an FBI informant claim that the company’s executive, Mykola Zlochevsky, bribed both Hunter and Joe Biden with $5 million each in exchange for a massive shift in American foreign policy.

Hunter and Archer attended Yale together in the 1990s and have been close acquaintances ever since. They frequently played golf together, including one infamous game where they were photographed together with then-Vice President Joe Biden in New York sometime during the Obama Administration; the picture directly contradicts the elder Biden’s claims that he never discussed foreign business deals with his son or any of his associates.
