House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., concluded the first Biden impeachment inquiry hearing with an announcement that he is subpoenaing Hunter and James Biden’s bank records. 

Comer stated, “The witnesses today have all identified the evidence the committee has uncovered as deserving further inquiry.” 

“I wanna thank the witnesses for their testimony today. It confirms the evidence compiled by this committee justifies the investigation of Joe Biden’s role in his family’s international business schemes and justifies the next step of this investigation,” he continued.

“Therefore, today I will subpoena the bank records of Hunter Biden, James Biden, and their affiliated companies,” the congressman added.

The House Oversight Committee also issued a press release noting that three subpoenas were issued for both Hunter and James Biden’s personal and business bank records. 

Comer is also quoted in the press release noting, “The financial records obtained to date reveal a pattern where the Bidens sold access to Joe Biden around the world to enrich the Biden family.”

“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. This culture of corruption demands further investigation,” he added. 

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Smith, R-Mo., stated in the press release, “Hunter Biden cashed in by arranging access to his father.”

“While top Biden officials, Hunter’s lawyers, and congressional Democrats have offered little more than disinformation and lies, these bank records will bring us closer to the truth,” he added. 

“Issuing these subpoenas is an appropriate – and necessary – step to following the facts wherever they lead, and may shed light on the $24 million the Biden family has received in exchange for selling their family ‘brand’ as part of a global influence peddling scheme,” Smith concluded.
