In late Septemeber, House Republicans subpoenaed James and Hunter Biden.

The subpoena was for personal and business banking records.

CBS News reported:

House Republicans issued three subpoenas Thursday for Hunter Biden and James Biden’s personal and business banking records, as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, an escalation in their investigation of the Biden family’s business dealings.

The latest subpoenas come after the GOP-led House Oversight Committee held its first impeachment inquiry hearing into President Biden Thursday, focusing on Republican allegations of “constitutional and legal questions surrounding the President’s involvement in corruption and abuse of public office,” according to a committee spokesperson. Three House committees are looking into whether Mr. Biden “abused his federal office to enrich his family and conceal his and/or his family’s misconduct,” according to a memo written by the Republican chairs of the House Oversight, Judiciary and Ways and Means Committees that outlined the view of the factual and legal basis for the inquiry.

“The subpoenaed bank records will help the Committees determine whether Joe Biden abused his office by selling access and/or by receiving payments or other benefits in exchange for official acts,” House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer and House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan said in a letter accompanying the subpoenas.

Mr. Biden has denied any involvement in his son’s foreign work.

They have now missed the deadline to comply.

Breitbart reported:

The deadline set by House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) for Hunter Biden and James Biden to comply with the committee’s subpoenas passed on Thursday without any new information about whether the Bidens complied.

“You’ll be the first to know,” Comer told Punchbowl News on Thursday about any update on the subpoenas. “I’m sure Jamie Raskin will call you. He’ll say there’s nothing in there!”

The committee did not respond to a request for comment when Breitbart News inquired about the status of the subpoenas and if Hunter and James Biden’s lawyers are in communication with the committee.

A person with knowledge of the investigation told Breitbart News the committee is in communication with banks, and they are cooperating.
