House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., issued four additional subpoenas to Hunter Biden’s business associates, as well as four additional interview requests Thursday “leaving no stone unturned” as the investigation continues.
“Today…[Comer] issued additional subpoenas to Hunter Biden’s business associates, Eric Schwerin and Mervyn Yan, his gallerist, George Bergès, and art patron, Elizabeth Naftali, to appear for depositions. In addition, Chairman Comer requested a transcribed interview with the Americore Holdings, LLC trustee regarding “loans” the Bidens received,” the press release stated.
Comer’s move comes only a day after the committee notably subpoenaed Hunter Biden, James Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, as well as several other family members, according to The Hill.
Hunter Biden reportedly had worked in close relations with Schwerin at Rosemont Seneca Partners and on a separate occasion with Chinese energy company CEFC official Yan over expense reimbursements, according to the outlet.
Comer’s additional subpoenas also included Bergès, the gallerist who showcased and sold Hunter’s paintings for up to $500,000 and Naftali who bought Hunter’s paintings as well as reportedly visited the White House numerous times.
“A plethora of bank records, texts, emails, and a transcribed interview with Biden family associate Devon Archer all show the Bidens and their business partners sold access to the highest levels of our government, including Joe Biden himself, to the detriment of America’s interests,” Comer stated in the press release.
Three of the four additional interview requests by the committee bore connections mainly to James Biden. All three notably are being asked about donations and payments to James dating back to as early as 2016, according to The Hill.
“Americans across this country have made it clear to President Joe Biden, the Biden family, and their associates that the gig is up,” Comer stated.
“The House Oversight Committee, along with the Committees on Judiciary and Ways and Means, are determined to follow the facts, and deliver the transparency and accountability that the American people demand, deserve, and expect,” he continued.
