Comer to subpoena Biden family members
"This is always going to end with the Bidens coming in front of the committee," he said.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer on Thursday said that his committee would eventually issue subpoenas to the members of the Biden family and potentially President Joe Biden.
"This is always going to end with the Bidens coming in front of the committee. We are going to subpoena the family," he said on Fox Business. "We know that this is going to end up in court when we subpoena the Bidens. So we’re putting together a case, and I think we’ve done that very well. We’ve shown the bank records."
"If I had subpoenaed Joe and Hunter Biden the first day I became chairman of the committee, it would have been tied up in court and the judge would have eventually thrown it out," he continued. "We have put together a case that I think would stand up in any court of law in America."
Appearing on the "Just the News, No Noise" television show one day prior, Comer expressed hope that his investigation would lead to legislative changes to curtail influence peddling operations.
"This should have been caught years ago, this should have been caught by the Obama administration, what Joe Biden was doing, they had to know, especially when he went to Ukraine and withheld that foreign aid, and was so adamantly involved in firing the prosecutor who was investigating his son's corrupt company, the Obama administration had to know about this," he opined. "So this is something that in the end, will be successful, because we're going to prevent this from happening in the future."
Comer's remarks follow the committee's publication of documents outlining more than $20 million in payments to firms connected with the Biden family from foreign nationals from Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine.
