House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith on Wednesday asked first son Hunter Biden's attorney, Patrick Kevin Morris, to sit for an interview with the committee while the House explored the impeachment of President Joe Biden.
In writing to Morris, the trio highlighted a litany of Biden family financial transactions and suggested that Morris may have vital information related to them.
"[T]he Biden family used corporate bank accounts of third-party associates to receive wires from foreign companies and foreign nationals," they wrote. "The Biden business associates then dispersed money to various Biden family members in incremental payments over time. Moreover, subsequent to the initiation of the impeachment inquiry, the Committees subpoenaed bank records associated with Biden family members, and those documents raise additional concerns."
"The Committees have identified you as possessing information relevant to our investigation and seek your testimony regarding these and related topics," they continued. "This request is made pursuant to that inquiry. Both public reporting and evidence reviewed by the Committees suggest that you have personally lent money to, or otherwise satisfied debts on behalf of, Hunter Biden."
They further pointed to a New York Times reported claiming he lent more than $2 million to Hunter Biden.
"The Committees are interested in understanding the nature and purpose of any loans to or payments on behalf of Hunter Biden that may have occurred while Joe Biden was either a candidate for public office or holding public office," they continued. "Among other things, the Committees intend to understand the terms of such 'loans' you made to Hunter Biden and what benefits you may have received as a result of providing financial assistance to President Biden’s son."
The Republicans requested that Morris sit for a voluntary interview with the committees and to schedule it by Nov. 22.
