House Oversight Panel Formally Requests Papers, Correspondence From Hunter

The Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, Rep. James Comer of Kentucky, sent President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and his brother, James Biden, the panel’s first formal demand for documents related to their international business endeavors.

Kamar informed Hunter and James Biden, as well as their then-business manager, that he was seeking documents and communications from the Bidens as part of his committee’s investigation into their financial dealings, particularly the president’s possible involvement in foreign business transactions linked to the Chinese Communist Party. In his letter, Comer alleged that he had “taken large sums of money from foreign entities without providing any known legitimate services.”

Comer said that in addition to the investigation, the committee is considering drafting a measure to tighten federal ethics rules regarding public officials and their families.

Comer requested any “marked classified” records that the two may have had over an 11-year period beginning Jan. 20, 2009, in addition to conversations between the president or James Biden and his wife, Sarah Jones Biden, and Hunter Biden.

Republicans can now call witnesses because they control the majority in the House. The Bidens have until February 22 to respond before deciding whether to issue subpoenas for records and testimony. In a statement to CBS News, Comer would not rule out the possibility of subpoenas as early as April.

Hunter Biden’s defense team went on the offensive last week, demanding state and federal investigations into the distribution of what was taken from his laptop and used for personal purposes.

Kammer asked the White House to provide a log of all visitors to the president’s Wilmington, Delaware home after he took office in January after documents with classified markings were found there.
