Comer: Biden subpoenas to come 'in a matter of days'
"Because we got these bank accounts, then we’re very close to bringing in the Biden[s]," he said.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer on Friday forecast upcoming subpoenas for members of the Biden family, saying the committee could file them "in a matter of days."
Appearing on "The Great America Show" with Lou Dobbs, Comer highlighted the committee's priors subpoenas for the Bidens' bank records, noting the recent discovery of a $200,000 check that the president's brother, James Biden, wrote to President Joe Biden in 2018 that the White House has said was a "loan repayment."
"We've subpoenaed his bank records and we’ve gotten almost all the bank records in and during the process of giving us more," Comer said. "It's been a long process because, Lou, he has so many bank accounts; he would have one shell company with a dozen bank accounts."
"Because we got these bank accounts, then we’re very close to bringing in the Bidens," he said. "I would say it’s a matter of days before they get served."
Comer has spearheaded much of the House Republican investigation into the Biden family and their allegedly corrupt family business dealings. The lower chamber has already launched an impeachment inquiry into the president. The Louisiana lawmaker, for his part, noted that his committee had needed to secure tangible documentation of their activities prior to compelling their testimony so as to have hard facts with which to present members of the first family.
"We needed to have the bank records because now, if we didn’t have those bank records, we couldn’t say, 'Jim Biden, what is this $200,000 check to your brother, Joe Biden?' No one knew about that until we got the bank record," he said. "So we built up a case. And I think that we just about got enough bank records to where we can bring them in and ask them specific questions with specific hard evidence in the form of bank statements."
