House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer subpoenaed former White House Counsel Dana Remus to appear for a committee deposition concerning President Biden’s alleged mishandling of classified documents.
Comer, R-Ky., posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, releasing a picture of the subpoena for Remus, noting how Biden “may have kept sensitive documents related to his family’s foreign business schemes.”
“Facts continue to emerge showing that the White House’s narrative of President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents doesn’t add up,” Comer stated in a press release.
Comer first requested that Remus appear before the House Oversight Committee for a transcribed interview in May.
The panel had previously obtained information that they claimed had contradicted “important details” from both the White House’s and Biden’s “personal attorney’s statements” regarding the discovery, location, and security of the classified documents at the Penn Biden Center, according to Fox News.
“It is imperative to learn whether President Biden retained sensitive documents related to any countries involving his family’s foreign business dealings that brought in millions for the Biden family,” Comer stated.
“The Oversight Committee looks forward to hearing directly from Dana Remus and other central figures to further our investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents and determine whether our national security has been compromised,” he added.
Along with the release of “omitted information” regarding the details of Biden’s classified documents, the House Oversight Committee obtained “financial records” on Nov. 8, which reportedly revealed that the president’s family and associates have “received payments from entities in China, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Romania.”
Comer has described Remus as a “central figure” within the “early stages” of the classified documents, allegedly “coordinating the packing and moving of boxes,” according to Fox News.
“President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, including the apparently unauthorized possession of classified material at a Washington, D.C. private office and in the garage of his Delaware residence, raise serious concerns about his mishandling of sensitive intelligence information and his Department of Justice’s double standard of justice,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, stated.
“Today’s subpoena and transcribed interview requests represent another step in holding President Biden and the DOJ accountable,” Jordan concluded.
