The House Oversight Committee has issued subpoenas to multiple banks seeking financial records relating to the Biden family amid its investigation into the first family's business dealings.
The committee has ordered that Bank of America, Cathay Bank, JPMorgan Chase, and HSBC USA N.A. provide them with the relevant information, Fox News confirmed. They also issued a subpoena to Hunter Biden associated Mervyn Yan.
Maryland Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin suggested that Republicans were trying to hide information about the investigation from committee Democrats, to which Chairman James Comer, R-Ky, retorted that his complaints were a "cheap attempt to thwart cooperation from other witnesses."
"Given his antics with the first bank subpoena, the American people and media should be asking what information Ranking Member Raskin is trying to hide this time," he told the outlet. "No one should be fooled by Ranking Member Raskin’s games. We have the bank records, and the facts are not good for the Biden family."
Led by Comer, the Republican-dominated committee is looking into the Biden family's business dealings which have long been the subject of speculation and allegations of corruption. The effort is part of a broader series of Republican-led efforts to investigate the Biden administration and its alleged misuse of federal authority.
