(Headline USA) House Oversight Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., issued subpoenas for the personal bank records of Hunter Biden and his uncle James Biden as part of House Republicans’ impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, the New York Post reported.
Following his committee’s bombshell findings that Hunter wired hundreds of thousands of dollars from a Chinese company to his father’s Delaware residence in 2019 while he was living in California, Comer argued it is clear Joe Biden played a role in his son’s foreign business dealings.
The Kentucky Republican said he hopes the bank records he is subpoenaing will prove Joe Biden’s connections.
“From day one of our investigation of Joe Biden’s abuse of public office, we’ve followed the money and that continues with today’s subpoenas for Hunter and James Biden’s bank records,” Comer said in a statement Thursday following the House Ways and Means Committee’s first official impeachment inquiry hearing.
“Bank records don’t lie, and coupled with witness testimony, they reveal that Joe Biden abused his public office for his family’s financial gain,” Comer added.
Some of the businesses named in the subpoena that were associated with Hunter Biden include: Owasco, P.C.; Owasco, LLC; and Skaneateles. Those associated with James Biden in the subpoena were Lion Hall Group, LLC; and JBBSR, Inc.
Comer said the entities have until Oct. 12 to hand over the records.
“As the Bidens were sealing deals around the world, Joe Biden showed up, met with, talked with, shook hands with, and had meetings with the foreign nationals sending money to his family,” Comer explained. “This culture of corruption demands further investigation.”
Witnesses called before the committee on Thursday—including noted constitutional law expert Jonathan Turley—acknowledged that additional evidence tying Joe Biden to his family’s influence peddling was needed before formal articles of impeachment could be drawn.
The witnesses did agree, however, that there was enough evidence for a formal probe and expressed support for the impeachment inquiry.
Democrats are posting an edited version of this video in which Jonathan Turley says he does not believe the evidence today does not support impeachment, but he does believe it supports an inquiry.
They are cutting off the last part to deceive people.
