New Subpoenas Hunter Biden, President’s Brother James Biden

Committee subpoenas Hunter Biden, president’s brother James Biden.

Chairman James Comer of the House Oversight Committee announced a slew of subpoenas on Wednesday targeting members of President Joe Biden’s family, including his son Hunter Biden, brother James Biden, and former Hunter Biden business associate Rob Walker, demanding they appear for depositions.

The subpoenas, which Comer has threatened for months, marks an escalation in his panel’s ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Biden. The committee had previously subpoenaed banks for records belonging to Hunter and James Biden.

In addition to the subpoenas, the committee is requesting transcribed interviews with other Biden family members and associates, including both Hunter Biden’s wife, Melissa Cohen, and the widow of Beau Biden, Hallie Biden. Also asked for transcribed interviews were James Biden’s wife, Sara; Elizabeth Secundy, the older sister of Hallie Biden; and Tony Bobulinski a former business associate of Hunter Biden.

In a statement to ABC News, Comer said, “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.”

Abbe Lowell, an attorney for Hunter Biden, said in a statement, “This is a yet another political stunt aimed at distracting from the glaring failure of Rep. Comer and his MAGA allies to prove a single one of their wild and now discredited conspiracies about the Biden family. Nevertheless, Hunter is eager to have the opportunity, in a public forum and at the right time, to discuss these matters with the Committee.”

Paul J. Fishman, an attorney for James Biden, said there was “no justification” for the subpoena.

“After a long, desperate search for any financial transaction between Jim Biden and his brother, including an unnecessary and intrusive review of Jim’s private banking records, the Committee has resorted to criticizing two loans that Jim received when his brother was no longer in public office and not even a candidate for the Presidency,” Fishman said. “Those same bank documents clearly show that Jim repaid both loans within weeks.”

He continued, “There is nothing more to those transactions, and there is nothing wrong with them. And Jim Biden has never involved his brother in his business dealings.”

Besides Biden family members, one subpoena targets a former business associate of Hunter Biden, Walker, who in a December 2020 interview with the FBI, Walker, stated he “certainly never was thinking at any time that the V.P. [Biden] was a part of anything we were doing” and explained that the idea that President Biden would ever get involved was “wishful thinking” on the part of another business partner, James Gilliar, akin to “unicorns and rainbows.”

MORE: Democrats call Biden impeachment inquiry ‘about nothing,’ GOP chair struggles to keep controlComer’s impeachment inquiry has been marked by criticism — even from some Republicans — claiming the nearly yearlong investigation into Biden has still not produced sufficient evidence for impeachment.

In a lengthy memo, the White House accused House Republicans of abusing their power to conduct a smear campaign against the president and his family, saying they are “throwing spaghetti” at the wall after failing to produce evidence to support their allegations.

Rep. Jamie Raskin, the ranking Democrat on the committee, slammed the subpoenas and “their buffoonish impeachment hearing.”

“The Committee has already obtained the personal financial records of the three private citizens Chairman Comer has subpoenaed: the President’s brother, his son, and one of their business partners, Rob Walker,” Raskin wrote in part in a lengthy statement. “The Committee also has Mr. Walker’s interview with the FBI and the summary of his interview with the IRS, which Republicans have already released. These subpoenas and interview requests are yet further proof that this sham impeachment inquiry is driven only by the demands of the vengeful and prevaricating Donald Trump.”
