The National Archives and Records Administration will provide the House Oversight Committee with a litany of records to accommodate Chairman James Comer's request for access to materials as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.

Among those documents are 1,799 emails and attachments, totaling more than 60,000 pages, the Washington Examiner reported. The emails include messages to and from then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter involving Ukraine and energy firm Burisma.

Burisma has long attracted Republican attention, largely due to allegations that the firm paid off both Hunter and Joe to stifle a probe from then-Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the firm. Earlier this year, an unclassified FBI document outlining the alleged scheme based on confidential human source information went public. 

Then-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced the start of the impeachment inquiry in September. He did so, however, without holding a chamber-wide vote, which Republicans are expected to hold this week.
