WASHINGTON—House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) today issued subpoenas to President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, brother, James Biden, and Biden family associate, Rob Walker, to appear for depositions. Chairman Comer also requested additional members of the Biden family and their associates appear for transcribed interviews. Chairman Comer plans to send additional subpoenas and transcribed interview requests later this week.
“The House Oversight Committee has followed the money and built a record of evidence revealing how Joe Biden knew, was involved, and benefited from his family’s influence peddling schemes. Now, the House Oversight Committee is going to bring in members of the Biden family and their associates to question them on this record of evidence,” said Chairman Comer. “Unlike the many lies President Biden told the American people about his family’s business schemes, bank records don’t lie. These records reveal how the Bidens sold Joe Biden around to the world to benefit the Biden family, including Joe Biden himself, to the detriment of U.S. interests. The House Oversight Committee, along with the Committees on Judiciary and Ways and Means, will continue to follow the facts and deliver the transparency and accountability that the American people demand and deserve.”
According to financial records obtained by the House Oversight Committee, the Biden family set up over 20 shell companies – most of which were created when Joe Biden was Vice President – in a concerted effort to hide payments from foreign adversaries. The Biden family, their business associates, and their companies received over $24 million from foreign nationals over the course of approximately five years – including millions of dollars from China, Russia, Ukraine, Romania, and Kazakhstan. The Bidens and their associates made complicated financial transactions to conceal the source and total amount of money they received from foreign nationals and companies.
Devon Archer, a Biden family associate, testified that Joe Biden was “the brand” the Bidens sold around the world and used to send signals of access, power and influence. Archer admitted that Joe Biden was put on speakerphone by Hunter Biden with his business associates over twenty times; dined with his family’s foreign associates, including Russian and Kazakhstani oligarchs, and a Ukrainian executive being investigated for corruption; and had coffee with Hunter’s Chinese business partner and went on to write his daughter a college letter of recommendation.
Recently, the House Oversight Committee identified two checks labeled as “loan repayments” from James and Sara Biden to Joe Biden that were funded by laundered China money and domestic influence peddling schemes. After Chairman Comer called on President Biden to provide proof of loans to his brother, the White House refused.
“President Biden and his administration have continually changed their stories throughout this inquiry. You know who’s been consistent? The IRS whistleblowers. With each piece of evidence we gather, their whistleblower accounts are corroborated. These subpoenas are a necessary next step as House Republicans deliver accountability for the American people,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).
“The American people are learning the truth about how the Biden Family sold access to Joe Biden and his political influence all around the world,” said Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R-Mo.). “Based on the evidence uncovered by an ongoing Congressional investigation that includes the testimony of two brave IRS whistleblowers, we know President Biden lied when he said he had no knowledge of his son’s business dealings; we know he was not only aware but involved; and it has now become abundantly clear that he in fact benefited. No one should be shielded from legal scrutiny based on their last name. Congress has a constitutional duty to conduct oversight to determine whether our nation’s elected leaders have used public office to enrich themselves or their families, and more importantly, whether those public officials may be compromised by their family’s foreign business dealings. Subpoenaing key members of the Biden family influence peddling operation is the next logical step in this investigation.”
