House GOP seeks interviews with lobbying firm leaders linked to Hunter Biden
Both Karen Tramontano and Sally Painter have already been interviewed by congressional investigators in the Senate.
House Republicans are requesting meetings with the leaders of Blue Star Strategies, a lobbying firm that did work for a Ukrainian energy firm that previously employed Hunter Biden.
"Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-KY) sent letters to Blue Star Strategies' Chief Executive Officer Karen Tramontano and Chief Operating Officer Sally Painter demanding transcribed interviews," the Judiciary Committee wrote in a press release Wednesday.
"The Committees have obtained information suggesting that Blue Star Strategies was involved in the arrangement between Hunter Biden and Burisma, and believe that Tramontano and Painter possess specialized information that will meaningfully advance the impeachment inquiry and assist in potential legislative reforms," the release continued.
Senate investigators have already interviewed both Tramontano and Painter, according to The Hill.
These requests are based on ongoing investigations into allegations that President Joe Biden and his family benefited from Hunter's overseas business dealings.
"The information available to the Committees suggests that Blue Star Strategies was involved in the arrangement between Hunter Biden and Burisma. In October 2015, Hunter Biden and his business associate and fellow Burisma board member, Devon Archer, connected Burisma to Blue Star Strategies to conduct lobbying work on behalf of Burisma," the letter to Tramontano said.
