House Oversight Committee Seeks Transcribed Interview With Biden’s Doc After White House Logs Show He Met With Parkinson’s Disease Specialist

House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) has called up Joe Biden’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, to appear for a transcribed interview regarding his suspect medical assessments of Biden’s mental state and his private endeavors with the Biden family’s business schemes.

In a statement on X Sunday, Rep. Comer said the Dr. O’Conner’s “medical assessments have been potentially influenced by his business pursuits with the Biden family.”

Comer is demanding that O’Connor produce all documents and communications in his possession related to his involvement in the Biden family’s shady Americore Health business venture.

“After a concerning debate performance by President Biden against former President Donald Trump on June 27, journalists have rushed to report on what Americans have seen plainly for years: the President appears unwell,” Comer stated in a press release. “Americans question President Biden’s ability to lead the country, and the Committee on Oversight and Accountability is investigating circumstances surrounding your assessment in February of this year that ‘President Biden is a healthy, active, robust 81-year-old-male, who remains fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency,” the chairman continued.

“Recently, it was reported that you have ‘never recommended that [President] Biden take a cognitive test.’ The Oversight Committee is concerned your medical assessments have been influenced by your private business endeavors with the Biden family,” wrote Comer.

The Oversight Committee’s interest in Dr. O’Connor comes after bombshell reports over the weekend revealed that Dr. Kevin R. Cannard, a top Washington D.C. Parkinson’s disease specialist, has visited the White House at least ten times since November 2022.

Dr. Cannard is listed at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as a “neurologist and movement disorders specialist”  who researches treatments for “early phase Parkinson’s disease.”

Walter Reed provides medical care to senior federal officials, including the president.

According to official White House visitor logs, Dr. Cannard  traveled to the White House residence medical clinic for each of his visits, meeting with Dr. O’Connor in January, and Commander Megan Nasworthy, the Walter Reed naval nurse who coordinates medical care for Biden and other top officials, most of the other times.

Dr. Cannard’s spate of visits began on Nov. 15, 2022, with Dr. Joshua Simmons, an emergency medicine specialist associated with Walter Reed and the William Beaumont Army Medical Center.  He met most recently with Nasworthy on July 1, 2024.

O’Connor gave Biden a clean bill of health in February after his annual physical, which included a neurological exam that allegedly ruled out Parkinson’s disease.

However, according to one physician, Biden is showing all the signs of “Parkinsonism,” and Parkinson’s disease may be the least of his problems.

“All the disturbing symptoms we all see are called Parkinsonism,” the doctor, who chose to remain anonymous, told independent journalist Alex Berenson. “That is simply a fact. They consist of motor slowing, festinating gait with reduced arm swing, mask like ‘facies’, reduced vocal volume.”

As for the cause of the disorder, the doctor said “the best case scenario” for Biden would be Parkinson’s disease because there’s “a lot of treatment and the cognitive effects can be variable and sometimes not that significant.”

“Worst case would be Lewy body dementia,” he told Berenson. “This can be rapidly progressive, and the diagnosis is usually only made postmortem or based on the rapid decline.”

Other possibilities include Alzheimer’s disease, though that is less likely to have Parkinsonism. And then finally vascular dementia, which definitely can present like this, and the course can be variable, sometimes plateauing for long periods of time. There are other very obscure causes of Parkinsonism that certainly could be a possibility, but much much less likely.

According to The Wall Street Journal,  multiple European diplomats say they’ve seen a “noticeable deterioration in the president’s faculties in meetings since last summer.”

Adding fuel to the media firestorm over Biden’s cognitive health, Axios on Monday reported that Biden’s staffers habitually “prepare a document with large print and photos that include his precise path to a podium” to help him navigate his events.

The White House acknowledged on Friday that Biden had a short post-debate, “verbal check-in” with O’Connor.

“He did have a short verbal check-in in the recent days about his cold, it wasn’t a medical exam or a physical,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters aboard Air Force One. “It was a conversation, and his doctor didn’t think an examination was necessary.”

Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), who was the White House physician for both Presidents Obama and Trump, told the New York Post that it was highly probable the January meeting between O’Conner and Cannard was about Biden since the health of the president is O’Conner’s primary responsibility.

“It’s highly likely they were talking about Biden,” Jackson said.

Jackson accused O’Conner and the First Family, is trying to “cover-up” Biden’s cognitive difficulties.

“I believe he and Jill Biden have led the cover up. Kevin O’Connor is like a son to Jill Biden — she loves him. It’s crazy. Kevin O’Connor was in that job on day one of the Biden administration because they knew they could trust Kevin to say and do anything that needed to be said or done and cover up whatever needed to be covered up. He is part of the Biden family,” Jackson said.

Comer said in his press release that the committee has obtained evidence that shows he was involved in a shady healthcare venture with James Biden which came to light last fall.

“Prior to his current position, Dr. O’Connor was involved with the Biden family’s influence peddling schemes,” Comer wrote.

Recent evidence obtained by the Committee shows Dr. O’Connor’s and James Biden’s involvement with Americore Health, LLC, a company that operated rural hospitals and is currently involved in bankruptcy proceedings. James Biden, the President’s brother, used funds from Americore to pay Joe Biden $200,000 as the company was facing financial distress. James Biden received payments for $400,000 and $200,000, characterized as loans, from the company that were wired directly to his bank account “based upon representations that his last name, ‘Biden,’ could ‘open doors’ and that he could obtain a large investment from the Middle East based on his political connections.” During his transcribed interview, James Biden confirmed Dr. O’Connor provided him counsel in connection with the alleged work he was performing for Americore.

“You have repeatedly refused most interview requests from the media, and the Committee now turns to you to provide answers regarding your independence because of the mixed and confused messaging coming from the White House regarding the President’s ability to perform his job,” continued Chairman Comer. “The statements by the White House Press Secretary and President Biden appear inconsistent, and the Committee seeks to understand the extent of your role at the White House at this time. Given your connections with the Biden family, the Committee also seeks to understand if you are in a position to provide accurate and independent reviews of the President’s fitness to serve. To understand the extent of your involvement in the Biden family’s financial activity, we request that you produce all documents and communications in your possession regarding Americore and James Biden. Additionally, the Committee requests you make yourself available for a transcribed interview with Committee counsel.”


All hell broke loose in the White House briefing room Monday when White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tried to gaslight reporters about Dr. Cannard’s visits to the White House rather than answer a reporter’s question.

“We cannot share names of specialists broadly from a dermatologist to a neurologist,” Jean Pierre insisted, even though the Cannard’s identity was public information. “We cannot share names. There are security reasons,” she claimed.
